Having used RCF’s TT+ Touring & Theatre series successfully in the past, production on Vasco Rossi’s 2011 tour has stepped up to RCF’s TTL55-A three-way active line array system for the main PA rig, with the TTL33-A for the reinforcement systems and TT45-SMA cabinets for the stage monitors.
For more than 60 years RCF has been up with the world’s leaders in the production of professional loudspeakers and one of the top international players in professional audio amplification. The enormous experience accumulated by RCF over the years has led to the development of the acclaimed TT+ Touring & Theatre line, of which the TTL55-A is the recently developed high-end line array module: a 4-way cabinet with 3500W digital amplification, six RCF high power neodymium transducers, DSP 32-bit processor, 96 kHz sampling, remote control with RD NET software, and Shape designer focusing system, all developed by RCF. In production since 2010, the TTL55-A system is swiftly penetrating international markets and carving out a place for itself among the best systems in its class, thanks to its superb performance levels.
In the words of Vasco Rossi’s stage manager Diego Spagnoli: “I’ve always believed in placing my trust in people who have earned it. This year seemed like the right time to let people know that we need to be proud of our Italian heritage — Italian industry has scaled incredible heights, and I feel honoured to be able to bring my support to this project.”
Willy Gubellini’s Bologna based Nuovo Service rental company, an audio and lighting equipment hire service, with special expertise in live concerts and tours, has worked alongside many top musicians over the years. This summer they will deliver Vasco's music to audiences via some 120 TTL55-A array lines, 60 TTS56-A subwoofers, and an endless number of additional reinforcement cabinets and stage monitors to provide total audio power of almost 1 million watts.
“Today’s concert-goers expect to be provided with superb sound quality in all conditions, regardless of the acoustic problems of the stadium or arena – noted Willy Gubellini. “RCF’s TTL55-A means we can deliver optimal results for an audience that will number more than 80,000 people for each date of this tour.”
RCF Pro Italy Sales Manager Fabrizio Grazia gave an inside view: “We are extremely proud of this important milestone, which consolidates the growing success that we have achieved, one step at a time, thanks to the enormous dedication and passion that has driven our activities over the years. It’s a huge source of satisfaction for the entire RCF team, which has spent long hours working tirelessly on this project.”

Live in Atlanta – RCF TT+ delivers sound at The Dogwood Festival
During the weekend of 15-17th April 2011 Atlanta was in music mood.
Two large festivals were running at the same time and this year it was RCF TT+ systems that supplied the sound to a big audience at the SweetWater 420 Fest and the Atlanta Dogwood Festival.
The Atlanta Dogwood Festival is an arts and crafts festival held each spring at Piedmont Park in Atlanta, Georgia. Originally held for nine days across two weekends, it is now held only one weekend during early April, when the native dogwoods are in bloom.
The Dogwood Festival 2011 was celebrating its 75th years anniversary in the beautiful surroundings of Piedmont Park. With several stages with continuously performances the festival gives many upcoming artists and talents a good possibility to play their music to a wider audience.
At the festival there were performances by: Charlie Wayne Watson, Arena Sound, Off the Grid, Frets on Fire, OGYA World Music Band, SALSAtlanta, 3052 Dub Collective and several others.
Atlanta Audio Visual supplied the TT+ system to the main stage. The system was composed by RCF TTL55-A with 6 pieces per side and with 3 pcs TTS56-A Subwoofers on each side.
”After using many LINE ARRAY Systems such as JBL and V-Dosc, we decided to go for the RCF TTL55 System, for the great sounding DSP and Power Consumption. You can hear a true stereo sound from the rig. Also using the RCF software to calculate precise throw distance and splay of each box is a breeze…. We can setup 16 tops and 10 subs within 30mins and be ready to pass signal! When we want a great sounding system ready in no time and easy to use, The RCF TTL55 rig is our choice!!!” says Brad McWhorter from Atlanta Audio Visual.
Atlanta Audio Visual is a full service production company specializing in Audio, Lighting, Staging, Video, Set Design and Total AV Integration Services. They have installed and used RCF products for many corporate events, music festivals and shows and for many clients around the country.

Live in Atlanta – RCF TT+ delivers sound at The SweetWater Festival
During the weekend of 15-17th April 2011 Atlanta was in music mood.
Two large festivals were running at the same time and this year it was RCF TT+ systems that supplied the sound to a big audience at the SweetWater 420 Fest and the Atlanta Dogwood Festival.
The SweetWater 420 Fest, an Earth inspired celebration festival that offers large stages with lots of music combined with several art events.
Behind the event is the SweetWater Brewery that arranges the event and changes the Candler Park in Atlanta to a huge entertainment area, and also the possibility for the audience to taste the different beer flavours from the brewery and at the same time enjoy the music.
Main performers at this years festival was: Galactic, Railroad Earth, Arrested Development, 7 Walkers feat. Bill Kreutzmann of the Grateful Dead and others.
Rock Quarry Productions supplied the TT+ system to the main stage. The system was composed by RCF TTL55-A with 8 pieces per side and with 4 pcs TTS56-A Subwoofers on each side.
“Everyone was blown away by the performance of the RCF system; concert promoter, audience member and band engineer alike. It was a large festival with a grand main stage site. Concerned at first that we have enough PA to cover such a large audience, we were all amazed at the sound quality and power that the TT55 system delivered. The TT56 subs are equally exceptional; hands down the most powerful and articulate large-format subs I have experienced to date.” says Jay Holem from Rock Quarry Productions.
Approx 30.000 people visited this year SweetWater Festival.

Le Carre nightclub in France powered by RCF
The nightclub Le Carre in Maroeuil (area of Arras), France was recently equipped with a complete RCF ACUSTICA sound system.
Le Carre nightclub has 3 dance floors with an average capacity of 1000 people. RCF pro-partner Technic Audio Light accomplished the complete installation of audio and lighting system.
The audio system is an efficient combination of RCF C5215 speakers and RCF S8028 subwoofers. Technic Audio Light installed RCF ACUSTICA after a specific study and recommendation made by Mr. Daniele Torelli, RCF audio systems department.
The 4 pcs RCFC5215 are used for the two dance floors where HOUSE Music is played together with 2 pcs high-output 18" SUBS S8028 from the RCFACUSTICA range: The complete system is powered with 6 pcs RCF HPS2500 and managed by 2 pcs RCF DX2006 digital processors.
Several of active RCF ART310Ai with compact RCF SUB705AS subwoofers have been provided to cover the third retro-80's floor and also as distributed sound in Bar and Lounge areas.
Furthermore RCF S8028 and RCF 705AS subwoofers have been specifically mounted in different podiums in the whole complex.
So with this major upgrade on the audio system at Le Carre nightclub they are ready to “pump up the volume” on the dance floor.

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).
