Hofmann recalls, “The HDL 20-A’s had been to the Stadthalle many times with rental companies, and they were convinced that it would provide the best solution for their new permanent sound system.”
Immediately after Prolight+Sound 2017 in Frankfurt he made a site visit and carried out an acoustic simulation for optimum 3D modeling, using EASE.
Based on this solution, a public tender was issued, and the order for the PA was duly placed with dBTechnologies’ installation partner M-Akustik, based in Hessisch-Oldendorf.
The newly designed system comprised flown hangs of six HDL 20-A and an HDL 18-AS sub, along with a pair of SUB 8004 subwoofers per side. Four TT052-A, from RCF’s Touring & Theatre series, provided the front fills, with a further pair of TT052-A as under-balcony delays. The entire system is controlled from RCF’s dedicated DX-1616 Matrix Audio Processor.
Late last year the Stadthalle technical team visited Georg Hofmann again at an industry convention. “They explained how happy they were with the new system,” he confirmed.
