RCF TT+ Line Array System on board Viking Line M/S Rosella
Viking Line commenced service in 1959, when the S/S Viking began sailing between the Finnish mainland, the Åland Islands and Sweden. Today Viking Line has seven vessels, which sail between the Finnish mainland, Åland and Sweden as well as between Finland and the Baltic states. Operations include passenger services, recreation and cargo carrier services.
After renewing M/S Rosella’s dance restaurant to the height of two floors, Mr. Jouni Sironen, the AV Manager of Viking Line, was looking after the Line Array set, which could support live music and entertainment. After few demo listenings, RCF TTL 31A was chosen for the new system.
The system consists of rigged TTL 12AS and (4) TTL 31A per side and TTS 28A subs in the center ground stack to produce the perfect bass coverage. (4) RCF C 3108W delay speakers fill the back parts of low height first floor.
RCF’s Finnish distributor Noretron Communication Ltd supplied the equipments and the installation was carried out by the Viking Line’s own technical team and Noretron’s personnel. Two days in Estonian dockyard and the installers and the users were more than satisfied with TT+.

RCF TT+ System Provides Support For Philip Glass Ensemble.
The Philip Glass Ensemble along with the New York Philharmonic orchestra and the Collegiate Choir recently performed Philip Glass's powerful music for the 1982 Godfrey Reggio film "Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out Of Balance" at Avery Fisher Hall in Lincoln Center. The landmark film was projected on a large screen above the stage throughout the performance.
Simon Nathan, owner of Audio Production Services of Amawalk, NY, worked closely with Dan Dryden, FOH engineer for the Philip Glass Ensemble, to design the sound system for the event.
"Because Avery Fisher hall is home to the Philharmonic, it doesn't have an in-house system that could handle this performance," explains Nathan. "We were asked to provide a high quality system that could cover the entire hall without impeding any stage site lines and provide clean, consistent sound throughout the room."
The choice was the compact RCF TT+ Series, with single arrays each comprised of 10 TTL31-A modules flown left and right, attached to the overhead stage grid.
"When specifying systems for the ensemble I'm looking for smaller line arrays with flat frequency response," explains Dryden. "These were perfect. The low-mid frequencies are rich and warm, and the coverage was excellent.”
The overall footprint of these arrays was relatively small, measuring just less than two feet wide by only about 10 feet deep. The self-powered, 2-way active line array modules are outfitted with a single-8-inch cone driver and three compression drivers feeding a horn with horizontal dispersion of 100 degrees. They proved capable of covering all four levels of seating (main and three balconies) as well as boxes.
"When specifying systems for the Ensemble I'm looking for smaller line arrays with flat frequency response," explains Dryden. "These were perfect. The low-mid frequencies are rich and warm and the coverage was excellent. I was very pleased with the result."
The mains were joined by four TTS56-A dual 21-inch subwoofers, two side-by-side on each side of the stage, and each of these sub sets hosted a single TT25 compact powered loudspeaker supplying in fill presence, particularly for higher frequencies. The house loudspeaker complement was completed with front fill via four TT052-A low-profile 2-way loudspeakers deployed evenly along the front lip of the stage.
"The hall seats 2,800 with 3 balconies and box seats – it is a very large room," adds Nathan. "The arrays had no problem throwing all of the way to the back row of the top balcony without any need for delay fills. We had plenty of power for the space."
"This system was right up there with its more well-known competitors," Dryden concludes. "I will be adding it to my riders for future Philip Glass Ensemble events – I would definitely use it again."

RCF takes a cosmic ride into Wonderland
No Saints launches new club brand in South London. No Saints, the leisure group set up by former Luminar Leisure boss Stephen Thomas, has added the Wonder brand to its growing portfolio, after acquiring four new sites in the south-east.
Known respectively as Wonder Lounge, Wonder Land and Wonder Years, the first fully-fledged nightclub (Wonder Land) opened recently in Sutton, Surrey.
Back in charge of the 900-capacity venue he once operated as Liquid, Thomas brought in Dakota House of Design (to work the Alice in Wonderland theme into an escapist nightclub interior), while Mark Damon of Cosmic Electronics renewed his company’s long relationship with RCF to provide an end-to-end sound reinforcement solution.
“We have a long and successful track record working with RCF,” he said, “and so we were 110% behind the idea of working with them on this project because we know their products are of high quality and reliable.”
Mark Damon provided RCF UK with a demanding specification, which was to provide optimum coverage of two Wonder Lounge bars, at balcony level, and the large bowl underneath (known as ‘The Bizarre’).
The sound also needed to be hybrid, and sufficiently versatile to produce not only a high impact on the dance floor but also have the ability to operate in live mode, with good speech and vocal clarity for acts ranging from burlesque and comedy, performing on the curtained stage.
The manufacturers responded by recommending the components best fit for purpose, with EQ curves relevant to each eventuality stored in the three dedicated DX4008 4-in/8-out loudspeaker management processors.
Mark Damon’s installation team was also confronted with the challenge of retrofitting the system into a surreal interior that that had already been fabricated by Dakota interior designer, Terri Naylor, who had followed a brief to dwell on the darker side of Alice in Wonderland, with large mushrooms, twisted clocks and top hats.
Impressively free of any visible wiring, one of Cosmic’s more remarkable feats has been to recess four S8028 twin 18” RCF Acustica bass reflex subwoofers into pre-existing floor furnishing, creating a cardioid array behind six mesh grilles.
Above, at balcony level, four of RCF’s corner clusters of paired RCF Acustica C5212L 2-way, 60° x 40° narrow dispersion 500W enclosures, are angled down onto the dance floor, while, strategically placed around the periphery of the venue, are 14 Acustica C3110 10” 2-way speakers and an S8015 sub provide infill sound, ensuring even coverage without hotspotting.
Eight RCF DPS 3000 Class HD amplifiers (2 x 1700W RMS / 2 ohms) have been assigned, four each to the mid-high clusters and the S8028 subs, while five RCF HPS 2500 Class H power amps (2 x 1400W RMS / 2 ohms) drive the C3110 infill speakers, with one channel powering the venue’s pre-existing ceiling speakers.
Finally, a pair of active RCF NX M10-A active mid high monitors and an ART 905-AS active sub, providing the DJ with high-class reference sound, tops off the highly specified DJ booth.
“Considering the budget spent on technology the sound is absolutely superb,” reasons Wonderland’s general manager, Jay Davidson. “It is far superior to systems I have experienced at other clubs I have worked in.” He also commended the overall standard and neatness of Cosmic Electronics’ installation.
“This integrated technology is capable of delivering a unique sound and lighting experience to what is now a new generation of clubbers, who have never been exposed to this kind of dynamic.”
And Stephen Thomas added, “No Saints is on a journey, and having talented people who understand the nightclub market makes that journey more interesting and fun. Wonderland is about pure escapism — and the versatility of the sound system has enabled us to achieve all we would have hoped for and more.”

”Simply a milestone installation. Everything has been working according to the plans and we have ended up with a superb solution for the Ilie Oană Stadium and we are receiving many positive comments about our work. It has been great to see that the investment into a modern audio system solution is on the same high level as all the other segments that are within the stadium construction. It was important for us to be part of this project from the beginning and it also secured that we could supply the optimal solution. I am sure that this installation will add future references to RCF in our country”, says Kalman – FBS Lines
The tribune sections of the stadium are covered by 24 pcs RCF P6215 and 28 pcs RCF P4228 speakers.
The P6215 is a weatherproof full range; wide-dispersion, coaxial two-way loudspeaker systems for very high output and longer throw applications. The high-frequency section is a constant directivity CMD horn loaded to a 1.3” RCF Precision Neodymium compression driver with a 2.5” diaphragm assembly for smooth, wide dispersion. The low frequency transducer is a 15” woofer with a 3” voice coil. The cabinet is equipped with 12 x M10 brass inserts, a stainless steel U-Bracket and pair of spacers for 90° mounting. P6215 meets the requirements of IP 55 code (International Protection Rating).
The RCF P4228 is a weatherproof full range, wide-dispersion, two-way loudspeaker system offering substantial power and efficiency for a variety of professional indoor or outdoor applications; it meets the requirements of IP 55 code (International Protection Rating). The high frequency section is a constant directivity CMD horn loaded with a 1.4” RCF Precision Neodymium compression driver with a 2.5” diaphragm assembly for smooth, wide dispersion. The low-frequency transducer is a double 8” woofer with a 2.5” voice coil.
The amplification for the sound system is done with 6 pcs RCF DPS 3000, a 2-channel power amplifier that can handle exceptionally high power ratings in a compact and lightweight 2 units rack space, and 8 pcs RCF HPS 2500, a 2 channel power amplifier that delivers up to 2 x 1400 W RMS @ 2 Ω (2800 W RMS bridged @ 4 Ω).
The system is controlled by 2 pcs RCF DX 4008 digital loudspeaker management units. All installed in 2 pcs 26U racks with additional RCF electronics such as RCF M1033 CD-USB MP3 FM Tuner and more.
With several km´s of 4x4 cable installed all over the Ilie Oană Stadium the RCF system is now in work. So just like the recent RCF audio installation at the Juventus Stadium the audience attending the football matches of FC Petrolul Ploiești will experience a perfect and balanced audio when watching their teams effort to score some goals.

ESL invest further in RCF TT+ Technology
Essex-based Event Sound & Light Ltd (ESL) has expanded its fleet of premium RCF TT+ line array components after investing in further TTL33-A compact active three-way enclosures and TTS28-A active 2 x 18” bass reflex subwoofers.
This takes the company’s line array capability up to 24 TTL33-A (or two 12-element hangs) and 12 TTS28-A subs — with active 2-way TT25-A’s providing front fills.
Formed in July 2003 following a merger of two local companies, ESL has been specialising in sales, hire and installation ever since. But according to director, Paul Galley, the key part of the business is production and the touring/live events industry.
The pooling of the two companies’ respective inventories covered the immediate requirements at the outset but they soon started standardising on key components and increasing stock.
“We had some RCF ART products and the smaller Monitor 55’s — but then following extensive research invested heavily in the RCF TT25-SMA powered wedges, purchasing 16 monitors, as we did not have a standard monitor setup in place,” continued Paul. Alongside this investment in 2008, they expanded their stock of the TT range and bought their first TT33-A line array — thereby gaining the TT dealership. This provided another string to their bow in both sales and rental, with further RCF Art boxes helping to boost their lucrative dry hire trade.
“Our latest TT+ investment was in order to keep pace with demand and enable us to cover the ever increasing workload,” Paul Galley explained. “We have invested in such a way that we can have one large system or multiples of smaller systems out at the same time. One key element was to invest in different size flying frames that are available for both ground stacking and hanging.“
Being asked to provide complete event production on an accelerating scale has enabled the company to utilise the RCF’s TT+ products where customers may not have already been familiar with it.
“I like the TT’s dynamic range and good clear coverage and also the ‘plug and play’ design,” continued the ESL man. “Being self powered each element in the system is perfectly matched, which results in superb sound quality. It is easy and quick to set up and sounds good out of the box.”
And with so much other TT+ equipment already in the marketplace ESL know they can keep up supply and consistency with their customers on a sub-rent basis. The exceptional back up and support from Italy and the UK service centre has been another key reason for further investment.
ESL’s TT+ line array has been used extensively throughout the summer season on a range of live open air concerts, festivals as well as on dance events, where it is either ground-stacked on each corner of the dance floor or flown off the venue lighting rig, while the TT25-SMA wedges are constantly out on tour duty.

Tecnologia audio al servizio dell’arte moderna: la diffusione acustica nel Museo del Novecento a Milano
“A cavallo” tra Arengario e Palazzo Reale, il Museo del Novecento è dotato di un impianto di diffusione audio particolarmente efficace e “garbato”
Davvero notevole la ristrutturazione (ma sarebbe meglio dire: il ripensamento dello spazio) al quale il Palazzo dell’Arengario, nel cuore di Milano a pochi metri dal Duomo, è stato sottoposto negli ultimi anni per ospitare il museo del Novecento: l’intera arte novecentesca ripercorsa in ventisei sale che si snodano, secondo un percorso in ordine cronologico, tra il Palazzo dell’Arengario e il contiguo Palazzo Reale, collegato mediante una passerella aerea di recente costruzione.
Sale grandi e piccole, varie e monografiche, che dal celeberrimo “Quarto Stato” conducono, attraverso una riflessiva e affascinante camminata, all’arte degli Anni ’80, per un totale di 400 opere. I lavori sono iniziati nel giugno 2007 e conclusi nel 2010, con il Museo inaugurato appunto nel dicembre dello scorso anno.
In una simile ristrutturazione, che sfrutta al massimo gli spazi a disposizione, non potevano mancare gli aspetti tecnologici. Ci concentriamo in particolare sulla diffusione sonora che, in un ambiente museale, per di più così vasto, è indispensabile: RCF ha avuto un ruolo da protagonista, occupandosi di fornitura e scelta delle apparecchiature, progettazione e installazione.
L’esigenza era, vista la natura dell’ambiente (esposizione di opere d’arte, alcune molto complesse, vere e proprie installazioni dinamiche), costruire un sistema di diffusione audio il più possibile capillare (deve coprire tutte e ventisei le sale espositive) e allo stesso tempo poco invasivo sotto l’aspetto visivo. L’obiettivo è stato ampiamente raggiunto: il sistema ha il suo centro nevralgico al banco dell’accettazione, nella hall del Museo al pianterreno, e si dipana di sala in sala mediante diffusori acustici da incasso a controsoffitto o a parete, praticamente invisibili e di certo in grado di non guastare la visione delle opere. Ci conferma Aristodemo Preda di RCF, responsabile del progetto acustico, che “per ogni sala è stata fatta una valutazione ambientale per individuare la collocazione migliore dei diffusori acustici”, indi si è proceduto alla messa in opera.
L’impianto consente la “classica” diffusione di annunci (comunicazioni interne di servizio, avvisi rivolti al pubblico per presentazioni o conferenze che si tengono in una particolare sala del Museo) come anche la trasmissione di messaggi di emergenza, in ossequio alla normativa europea EN 60849, dedicata appunto agli impianti elettroacustici applicati ai sistemi di emergenza. “Per rendere più funzionale il sistema” – continua Aristodemo Preda – “ogni sala espositiva è stata considerata come zona a sé stante, sia nell’ottica di funzionamento standard, sia in condizione di emergenza.” Ogni area, infatti, è servita da una doppia linea di altoparlanti, ciascuna collegata a un proprio amplificatore per garantire in caso di guasto l’invio del messaggio di emergenza.
Per la gestione è stato utilizzato il DXT 5000, un sistema digitale a tecnologia distribuita, che consente a ogni componente di avere un proprio indirizzo fisico: questo permette la totale configurazione e installazione in accordo alle normative europee. Il monitoraggio dei dispositivi connessi, degli ingressi e delle uscite analogiche, è consentito dall’unità centrale del sistema (MU 1500).
Equipaggiando gli altoparlanti con la scheda SC 5926, il sistema può funzionare in modalità “diffusori attivi”, oppure operare in “modalità 100V” utilizzando l’apposita interfaccia MT 5708. Si tratta dunque di un sistema totalmente configurabile tramite il pannello frontale equipaggiato con 6 tasti e un display LCD o, più agevolmente, attraverso la sua interfaccia grafica che può essere installata su ogni PC (richiede Windows 2000 oppure XP).
Il sistema è esplicitamente pensato per soddisfare tutte le esigenze dei sistemi PA di ogni dimensione grazie ai moduli e alle periferiche implementabili.
Nel caso del Museo del Novecento, sono stati scelti, per le sale maggiori, diffusori acustici della serie Monitor Q, che uniscono un’elevata qualità di riproduzione a un innovativo design, in particolare i modelli MQ 60H e MQ 50C, mentre per tutte le altre zone sono stati impiegati diffusori acustici a due vie per garantire in ogni caso una perfetta riproduzione del messaggio inviato.
Insomma, un elemento fondamentale ma non protagonista, per così dire, il cui primo compito è nascondersi restando utile e fruibile, per accompagnare nel migliore dei modi un percorso appassionante che va da Pellizza da Volpedo al Futurismo, da Boccioni e de Chirico a Fontana, dall’Astrattismo all’Arte povera, in una location che per posizione (Piazza Duomo) e per pregio architettonico non potrebbe essere migliore.
