This organ will be presented for the first Encore day of the ATOS National convention in Pasadena Ca (July 5th, open to the public, I believe).
The chambers are placed on the side walls of the long and deep room, entirely in the audience area (except for the unenclosed "percussion shelf" which is at procenium left).
There are two main chambers, Main 1 and Main 2 with Main 2 being the furthest back into the auditorium (about 1/3 of the length back). The swell shades open towards the rear of the auditorium, so the sound at the console is somewhat indirect.
