Flash’s Du forum, managed by Global Spectrum, is putting on a number of summer events throughout 2015 in their indoor, air-conditioned, multipurpose venue.
Catering for all genres, the summer line-up includes Arabic concerts, illusionists, comedy nights and a variety of children’s theatre shows. To cater for this wide range, Delta Sound were asked to install the venue-owned K2 system, as well as provide a control package to accommodate the Arabic concerts and comedy evening.
The system installed is based around two hangs of 8 x L-Acoustics K2 cabinets per side. Each hang was flown over two points in line with the 12m x 8m venue owned stage. 6 x 12XT cabinets were used as front fills ensuring those who braved the front rows could hear every word of the comedians. 8 x L-Acoustics SB28 sub cabinets were installed in a horizontal arc configuration, ensuring an even sub pattern across the venue, while two hangs of 4 x L-Acoustic DV-Dosc cabinets were used as delays covering the seated grandstand. The system was powered using L-Acoustics LA8 racks.
An Avid profile console was used at FOH. Galileo 616 units were used to control the outputs to the PA as well as Record feeds. Tascam playback units covered the various walk in music as well as artist requirements. Delta used Smaart analyser system to time and EQ the elements that made up the entire system.
A Yamaha PM5DRH was used as the monitor console controlling the 115XT HIQ wedges on stage. 4x Arcs and an addition SB28 subs were used as stage side fills. Once again, all powered using LA8 amplifiers.
Shure wireless and wired mics - together with a variety of Sennheiser and DPA mics - were used to cover all the instruments and vocal requirements for the events.
Robert Eatock, project engineer in charge with Du Forum events, commented: “It was a pleasure to work on these shows for a couple of reasons. Firstly the K2 rig in the venue is easily controlled and sounds good without doing anything to it. And secondly it was inside in a very comfortable air-conditioned venue.”
