Hockeycomplex ‘Oosterplas’, Hertogenbosch (Netherlands)- The field hockey club which is also known as HC Den Bosch, recently underwent a complete new sound system installation, turning to RCF for the solution. RCF’s weatherproof IP55-rated P-series is no stranger to stadia and arenas throughout the world and has frequently been the architectural choice both for indoor installations in tough environments as well as outdoor applications such as stadiums and arenas.
With three sides of the field open, all 20 of the P 3115-T, run 100V line, are distributed evenly along the roof of the single tribune, which also includes a central cluster. The full range, wide-dispersion, coaxial two-way loudspeaker system provides substantial power and efficiency. The HF section is a constant directivity CMD horn loaded to a 1” RCF Precision compression driver with a 1.5” diaphragm assembly. The LF transducer is a 15” woofer with 2.5” voice coil and the selectable line transformer makes is suitable for 70-100 volt applications.
Commenting on the installation, Henri van Bergen, of RCF Netherlands, stated: “The most important consideration in stadiums like these is the Speech Transmission Index (STI), as well as fact the that the system must also sound great with music.
“The client realised, during the final stages of decision making, that the RCF P-series gave them the best of both worlds.”

JANDAKOT (PERTH), AUSTRALIA: After operating from hired premises for many years, the board at Good Success Church (formerly Mighty Living Waters Life Fellowship) made the decision to develop a permanent home. A new building in Jandakot, south of Perth was chosen and so the journey began.
The committee at Good Success Church contacted AVL consultant Rob Scott of Trans Media Alliance (TMA). Rob’s business is reasonably unique in that Rob had spent many years in the AVL industry and many as a committed church member. Rob started life as a professional musician and these credentials have given him the background to consult and design audio, lighting,and vision systems for churches, large auditoriums and performing arts centres.
Good Success Church required a sound and lighting system appropriate for dynamic live services which at the same time were suitable for television program recording and live media projection. Five companies were invited to tender on the TMA specifications, which Kosmic Sound and Lighting won due to price, experience and professionalism.
Kosmic worked closely with Group Technologies to present a tender-winning speaker system for the building which is 30 metres wide yet only 20 metres deep. The RCF HDL 20a active line array system was chosen. Each hang consisted of three full-range line array elements coupled with additional LF on the ground. Additionally,two boxes of HDL10a were used as centre fills. A Xilica Uno processor was used to process the system. Xilica’s high audio quality and powerful DSP platform allowed for everything from simple system tuning to pre-set system configurations depending on the size and scope of any event in the space.
TMA consulted with both the architect and acoustic consultants to match the room acoustics to the performance of the RCF system. Roof heights were changed along with a custom design for the walls, ceiling panels and diffusers. The resulting room sound is spectacular.
“It makes such a difference to the outcome when I am consulted before the project is built.” Rob Scott TMA
We found the Kosmic team professional and flexible to work with during the building and fitout process…. Kosmic also provided training and after completion support for transition to the new system. The result achieved with the acoustic treatments and audio system are ideal “ Pastor Rajan, Snr Pastor, Good Success Church.
Recognising that LED technology has reached a stage where it's possible to present a modern professional stage lighting system without dimmers and tungsten fittings, TMA were able to design a lighting system suitable for live performance, television recording and multimedia projections while reducing ongoing power operating costs.
“This is an exceptionally professional AVL integrated system installation, indeed a reference model for the new modern systems using line array and LED technology. Congratulations to Good Success Church for your foresight, and Kosmic for your professionalism” Rob Scott, Consultant

Uno de los edificios más emblemáticos de Newcastle-upon-Tyne, el Palacio de las Artes, ha sido equipado con un sistema HDL20-A de la serie D Line de RCF. Los proveedores técnicos locales de la empresa Nitelites han intermediado directamente con los nuevos inquilinos, la fábrica de cerveza Wylam. La Sala Principal del Palacio de las Artes, que es el último edificio conservado de la feria North East Coast Exhibition de 1929, fue inaugurada por el Príncipe de Gales (que posteriormente se convertiría en Eduardo VIII) en el parque de la exposición, reformado recientemente. La fábrica de cervezas Wylam ha trasladado su cuartel general y ha convertido el monumento en una fábrica de cervezas plenamente operativa y en un espacio para eventos, después de estar prácticamente abandonado durante un período de diez años. En el pasado, se utilizó como museo de la ciencia y museo de vehículos militares. La Sala Principal acoge numerosos eventos para los cuales se requería un sistema de audio de vanguardia: un mercado de cerveceros, música en vivo (entre ellos, el número 1 en la lista de álbumes más vendidos, Michael Kiwanuka), eventos gastronómicos, bodas y eventos empresariales, con una capacidad máxima de 800 personas de pie.
El director de eventos y copropietario de la fábrica de cervezas, Dave Stone, famoso promotor de la escena musical local, implicó en el proyecto a Nitelites. «Les confiamos la creación de una instalación adecuada para la amplia gama de eventos que vamos a celebrar», ha declarado. Stone ya conocía la calidad de los productos de RCF, puesto que había tenido experiencia con el fabricante italiano en otros locales donde había trabajado anteriormente. Sabía también que el stock de Nitelites cuenta con una buena visibilidad entre los ingenieros de sonido y puede completarse con otros productos si fuera necesario.
El director de Nitelites y diseñador de sistemas de audio, Andy Magee, reconoció enseguida el desafío que presenta la estructura dotada con una cúpula de vidrio, por el problema de la fuga de sonido hacia el exterior y una fuerte reverberación interna. «Inicialmente, el estudio preliminar limitaba considerablemente el nivel de presión sonora, pero hemos conseguido demostrar la nitidez del HDL20-A y nuestra capacidad para redirigir la energía hacia la pista, por lo cual nos ha resultado posible elevar el límite a 100 dB». Un empujón posterior lo ha proporcionado el modelo virtual del entorno creado con EASE Focus 3.
Magee ha añadido que la decisión de elegir este sistema tan vendido, con seis elementos colgados en cada lado, ha sido muy fácil, sobre todo gracias al patrón de dispersión de 100° x 15°. «El retorno de la inversión es muy elevado y la puesta en funcionamiento resulta muy fácil y rápida», ha afirmado. Bajo el proscenio se han colocado cinco potentes subwoofer TTS36-A, con dos woofer de neodimio de 18”. Además, se han utilizado seis RCF NX15-SMA como monitores de escenario.
Andy Magee ha destacado también otras características del sistema. «La fábrica de cervezas no dispone de un ingeniero de sonido a tiempo completo, sino que cuenta con ingenieros freelance que, por lo general, ya conocen el sistema. El hecho de que el HDL20-A esté equipado con distintos botones para activar instrumentos de corrección les permite modificar las frecuencias graves y el intervalo de medios como deseen». También ha comentado que el soft touch filter y los controles de ecualización son fáciles de entender. A modo de conclusión, el responsable de Nitelites afirma que «existen muchas dinámicas en el sistema que permiten que el cliente afronte una amplia gama de eventos. Al mismo tiempo, hemos conseguido mantener la reflexión absolutamente al mínimo». Dave Stone coincide en esta apreciación. «No hemos podido tratar la sala para mejorar la acústica, pero Nitelites ha dado en el clavo con el sistema RCF. Hemos recibido una respuesta estupenda y el sistema ha demostrado adaptarse muy bien a distintos escenarios y acontecimientos»

Cuando Nitelites estableció un nuevo hito en refuerzo sonoro instalando de forma permanente un sistema de formación en línea RCF HDL20-A en el auditorio principal del Sage Gateshead, con capacidad para 1700 personas, parecía solo cuestión de tiempo que se decidieran a modernizar el Sage Two, más pequeño.
Casi dos años y medio más tarde eso es lo que ha ocurrido exactamente. Sin embargo, y dado que la segunda sala del complejo es un auditorio flexible de diez lados y tres pisos, con capacidad para 430 personas (con patio de butacas) o 600 en caso de un concierto sin asientos, la instalación no iba a ser en ningún caso simple.
El diseñador de sistemas Andy Magee, Director de Nitelites, optó por un par de TTL6-A de RCF como núcleo central de la primera fase de modernización, sabiendo que la posterior llegada de la formación en línea compuesta HDL6-A permitiría a los dos pisos superiores recibir una cobertura de 360°.
"El sistema de sonido presente en el Sage Two no cubría las necesidades de los múltiples usos de la sala", en opinión de Magee. "El espacio se usa para eventos de muy diferentes naturalezas, desde conciertos clásicos, de jazz o músicas del mundo hasta teatro, algunos de ellos sin amplificar. El TTL6-A no solo es compacto sino considerablemente contundente. La primera vez que lo oí quedé impresionado por el nivel de presión sonora: me pareció una solución compacta ideal."
No en vano el módulo activo de tres vías TTL6-A viene equipado con dos woofers de graves de 2 x 12”, 4 x 6.5” medios y un motor de compresión con bobina móvil de 3.0”. La integración de cuatro canales de amplificación digital y el avanzado procesado digital elevan los estándares de distorsión, ruido y eficiencia térmica.
El entusiasmo del director de Nitelites dio lugar a una demostración para el director técnico de Sage Gateshead, Neil Colebeck, y para el técnico de sonido principal, Graham Orchard. La prueba no era estrictamente necesaria, dada la confianza que inspiraba el impecable rendimiento del sistema RCF de la sala contigua.
Los TTL6-A se complementan con ocho sub-bajos de 18”, dispuestos en un patrón cardioide invertido encastrados bajo el escenario. Tres TT052-A, ultra compactos, actúan como apoyo frontal (front-fill) dirigiendo el haz sonoro a las primeras filas, mientras que un par de TT08-A activos, igualmente discretos, sirven de apoyo exterior (outfill), ofreciendo unos increíbles niveles de presión sonora de 128dB.
Las simulaciones de sala que Andy Magee realizó con el software EASE Focus 3 confirmaron lo acertado del diseño. En palabras suyas: "Además del impresionante ancho de banda, el TTL6-A tiene un patrón de dispersión de 90°/30° (horizontal/vertical) con -25°/+5°, lo cual es perfecto en ese espacio".
Neil Colebeck confirmó que ya venían barajando la introducción de un sistema más moderno y flexible. "El sistema anterior nos dio un buen servicio, pero estaba empezando a fallar, y sus graves y cobertura lateral eran insuficientes. Revisamos la situación en septiembre, dada nuestra apretada agenda de eventos después del verano."
”También nos preocupaba la cuestión económica, pero Nitelites siempre nos ofrecido una asistencia fantástica y nunca hemos tenido problemas con el sistema RCF del Sage One, del que recibimos excelentes valoraciones. En cuanto al TTL6-A, Nitelites ya había realizado una serie de eventos con este módulo, así que estábamos familiarizados con él." Y dado su conocimiento directo de la sala, eran muy conscientes de los retos que presentaba un espacio de diez lados.
Se dieron cuenta asimismo de que la anulación de la presión sonora en la parte anterior que ahora ofrecían los subs cardioides facilitaría mucho las cosas para el ingeniero de monitores, reduciendo además el número de elementos -todo ello bajo el control del DSP BSS Soundweb y una mesa de mezclas Midas Pro 2.
Graham Orchard añade: "habiendo realizado eventos con el TTL6-A, puedo afirmar que la mejora se escucha claramente".
Desde la redacción de este artículo nuestro querido amigo Neil falleció repentinamente. Su recuerdo permanecerá siempre entre sus amigos y compañeros.

OK SONO equips 1200-capacity multipurpose arena
‘Salle Olof Palme’ is a multi-purpose exhibition and event arena, with 1200-capacity, in the northern French city of Béthune.
Dedicated primarily to business exhibitions and conventions, local sound and lighting sales, rental and installation company OK SONO recently installed an RCF HDL10-A compact line array, having won a public administration tender by proposing this highly cost-effective line array solution.
The installation, which features four elements flown left and right of the stage, followed a complete renovation of the Arena, including new lighting and video screen.
For this large venue, the customer had wanted to avoid the traditional multi-diffusion cabinet design. Instead, Francesco Venturi, from RCF’s Engineering Support Group, made a preliminary acoustic simulation with EASE Focus software, and HDL10-A met the criteria in this configuration, producing excellent results, particularly in delivering speech intelligibility.
In order to gain better coverage for the first few rows, since the removable stage did not accept traditional front fills, OK SONO dipped further into the popular D-Line range to specify two compact RCF HDL10-A active two-way monitors for theispurpose.
The entire system is controlled by RCF’s dedicated 2-in/6-out loudspeaker management device.
Emmanuel Obert, director of OK SONO, is delighted with the acoustic results, adding, “By the middle of the year we intend to add some [RCF] 8004-AS subwoofers, in order to improve bass response for live events with local bands. There is already a dedicated output from the DX processor for that purpose.”

New Delhi based Audio Factory used RCF’s composite D-Line components recently to help broadcast a WBO title fight at the city’s Thyagaraj Stadium.
Audio Factory equipped the stadium with a technical infrastructure, including sound, lighting, trussing and LED screen, as Indian boxing star Vijender Singh took less than 10 minutes to defend his Asia-Pacific Super Middleweight against former Tanzanian world champion, Francis Cheka.
Since the event was broadcast by Star Sports channel Audio Factory needed first class equipment to keep not only the 5,000 live audience in the stadium entertained but also the millions receiving the broadcast mix at home.
To achieve this, they fielded a total of 32 HDL20-A enclosures. This included 16 elements, flown in 4 x 4 clusters (one in each corner), with a total of 12 SUB 8006-AS subwoofers stacked on stage. A further 16 HDL20-A provided the delays.
The stadium sound was designed by Audio Factory director (and sound engineer), Vivek Vij Director of Audio Factory. The company recognised that the HDL20-A would be the perfect solution when a fast set-up is required. Powered by a 1400W (peak) 2-way digital amplifier, with integral processing and preset configuration, the HDL20-A features purpose-designed RCF transducers, two powerful 10” bass drivers and large format 3” voice coil compression driver.
“In view of its quality and the fact that it is powered and process controlled, the HDL20-A easily managed to provide good intelligibility and even coverage right across the stadium” confirmed Vivek.
