RCF Columns are the order for St. Columcille
Star Systems find delayed L2406’s offer controlled directionality.
When the beautiful 19th century Catholic parish church of St. Columcille, situated in the picturesque village of Inistioge, Kilkenny, had its rededication ceremony recently, the clergy were able to address the congregation through a new RCF column speaker system.
For the first time, following the extensive redevelopment, parishioners could hear the spoken word with absolute clarity — thanks to the delayed L2406 speaker array that had been specified by Co. Tipperary-based Star Systems.
Led by their MD, Declan O’Sullivan, the installers responded to the tender issued by local contractors, Corbett Electrical, and were awarded the contract based on their reputation in outfitting other houses of worship. However, this was the first time they had taken RCF to church, despite having worked extensively with the Italian brand over the past five years.
With a reverberation time of more than five seconds to contend with, Star Systems created an acoustic model of the building, and based on the measurements set about detailing a system best fit for purpose.
“We had heard the L2406 at Frankfurt ProLight+Sound last year and were hugely impressed with the directionality and the bottom end — and the fact that the speakers looked good,” declared Declan. “We knew we could wall-mount four speakers down each side of the church on delays — just 1.2 metres up from the ground — with the fifth pair upstairs in the choir loft.” The front pair also provides monitoring for the altar.
Purpose designed for houses of worship, the L2406 is a high intelligibility compact 3-way column speaker array, equipped with six 5" woofers and four 1" dome tweeters, with the vertical-controlled directivity that Declan O’Sullivan was seeking.
Reference monitors were also required for use in the sacristy and at the entrance, and Star Systems opted for an RCF Monitor 33T in each location — finished in white to match the L2406’s. These compact 2-way loudspeakers are loaded with 4.75" high-efficiency carbon fibre woofer and 0.5" mylar dome tweeter mounted on a 110 x 100 constant directivity horn.
The RCF loudspeakers form part of a full, high specification audio package, including wired and wireless (lapel and handheld) microphones, an eight-channel mixer, amplifiers, processing and an induction loop system. The overall fit-out was project managed by electrical contractor, Michael Corbett.
Visiting clergy have already been impressed with the high-grade speech and background music reproduction offered by the RCF solution — so much so that Star Systems have already received several enquiries for a similar fit-out, including a firm order.

Ein monumentales Audio System
Im Markusdom, der Sehenswürdigkeit des Weltkulturerbes Venedig, der jedes Jahr von ca. 2 Mio. Menschen aus aller Welt besucht wird, wurde kürzlich eine umfangreiche RCF Beschallungsanlage installiert. Insgesamt wurden 40 Lautsprecher, davon sind 10 die digital gesteuerte Zeilenlautsprecher VSA 2050, eingesetzt.
Viele der unzähligen Touristen, die dieses wunderbare Beispiel romanische und byzantinischer Architektur besuchen, nehmen auch an den Gottesdiensten teil, so dass das Audiosystem die verschiedensten Anforderungen zu erfüllen hat, erklärte Marco Mazzon, der Gründer des gleichnamigen Unternehmens mit Sitz in Meolo (Venedig), der das Audiosystem installierte. „Die Anforderungen an das neue System waren sehr umfangreich, es wurde eine erhebliche Steigerung der Sprachverständlichkeit und eine flexible Steuerung der verschiedenen Sektoren gefordert – es gibt ungefähr 30 Mikrofone die in sieben unterschiedlichen Zonen von Sprechen uns Sängern eingesetzt werden.“
Anhand der Anforderungen und detaillierten Informationen über das Bauwerk und deren Logistik, entwickelte Marco Mazzon das Signalmanagement. Für das akustische Design wandte er sich an RCF. Francesco Venturi von der Inhouse Projektabteilung, konzeptionierte und simulierte das Beschallungssystem und stellte es mit einem ausführlichen Bericht vor.
Die größte Herausforderung war die Aufteilung und gleichmäßige Beschallung der verschiedenen Bereiche, die von wenigen bis hin zu 30 Metern Tiefe reichten, ohne größere Pegelunterschiede und gleichbleibender Sprachverständlichkeit zurealisieren und das trotz einer für solche Gebäude typischen langen Nachhallzeit.
Damit sich die Lautsprecher in diesem historischen Gebäude möglichst unauffällig integrieren lassen, bekam jeder eine an den Hintergrund angepasste Sonderfarbe.
Marco Mazzon schwärmte: „Die RCF VSA Lautsprecher bieten die ideale Lösung für diese beiden Aspekte. Dank ihres bemerkenswerten Schalldrucks und Präzision und dem Custom Finish sind sie für mich das optimale System für diese Installation.“
Die zehn VSA 2050 decken den Bereich der „Gemeinde“ ab. Sie sind an den beeindruckenden Säulen der Basilika installiert. Sechs von Ihnen decken den vorderen Bereich des Hauptschiffes und die Querschiffe ab, während die anderen vier als Delay Lautsprecher weiter Hinten in den Schiffen installiert wurden. Zwei kleine RCF MR 33W/T Lautsprecher sind unterhalb des Ambos montiert um den vorderen Bereich der Sitzreihen abzudecken.
Dank des leistungsstarken DSP und der zwanzig 50W Class-D Endstufen erhält man mit der VSA 2050 eine optimale Kontrolle über die vertikale Abstrahlung und die notwendige Leistung und Dynamik um den zu beschallenden Bereich optimal abzudecken.
Verschiedene weitere RCF Lautsprecher wurden innerhalb und außerhalb der Basilika installierte: 17 2-Wege Säulen vom Typ CS 6940 und CS 6520 wurden in weiteren sieben Zonen installiert, um bei vollbesetzter Kirche jeden Bereich, darunter das Presbyterium und die Pala d’Oro (dem Hochaltar mit dem herrlichen Altaraufsatz), das Baptisterium der St. Isidor Kapelle und die Vorhalle, abzudecken.
Drei MR33T Lautsprecher sind als Abhörlautsprechern beim Organisten und in der Sakristei installiert. Für besonderen Anlässe auf dem angrenzenden Markusplatz gibt es sechs mehrzellige H6045 Fiberglashörner, jedes bestückt mit vier D5076 Treibern, die im Außenbereich an spezieller Fast-Lock Hardware befestigt wurde.
Zum Abschluss der Installation wurde das komplette System von RCF Technikern eingemessen.
Am Sonntag den 08. Mai wird Papst Benedikt XVI eine Messe im Markusdom zelebrieren.

Das Kameha Grand Hotel in Bonn Oberkassel, ein 5-Sterne-Design-Hotel in exponierter Lage, direkt am Rheinufer gelegen, hat sich zur Beschallung der einladenden Außen-Terrasse für 22 wetterfeste RCF MQ80P-S Lautsprecher-Systeme entschieden.
Die silberfarbenen 5"/1" Koaxial-Lautsprecher mit IP55 Klassifizierung wurden an den speziell nach Kundenwunsch gefertigten Edelstahlsäulen sowohl als einzelne Lautsprecher, als auch als Zweier- und Dreier-Cluster eingesetzt.
Die Zielsetzung, eine möglichst gleichmäßige, hochqualitative und kosteneffiziente Hintergrundbeschallung unter Vorgabe der Montagepunkte zu erreichen, erforderte eine exakte Planung und Ausführung, welche durch den RCF Installationspartner "Kuchem Konferenz Technik" aus Königswinter realisiert wurde.
Zur Planungsunterstützung erstellte der deutsche RCF Vertrieb, eine EASE Simulation, um eine exakte Ausrichtung und Pegelverteilung zu erreichen.
Das Ergebnis kann sich unter den gegebenen Voraussetzungen sehen und hören lassen - gute 90% der zu beschallenden Terrassenfläche liegen über den Frequenzbereich von 250 - 4000 Hz betrachtet bei nur +/- 3dB Pegel-Differenz (bei einem Referenzpegel von durchschnittlich 97,5 dB).

With the advice of the RCF product specialist Oscar Mora and local sound engineer Angel Hernandez, together with Soundset Production all the attendees were taken to a total The Doors ecstasy.

The TT+ System setup at The Doors concert also included several RCF TTS28-A and TT25-A units.
