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.

A Monumental Audio System – San Marco Church in Venice
At Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice, a true treasure of history, art and faith visited every year by at least 1.5-2 million people from all over the world, an extensive new RCF sound reinforcement system was recently installed, with forty loudspeaker enclosures that include no less than ten of the new VSA 2050 digitally steerable vertical line arrays.
Many of the countless tourists visiting this marvellous example of Romanesque and Byzantine architecture also take part in the religious ceremonies held inside, so the audio system had to meet various requirements, as is explained by Marco Mazzon, founder of the company of the same name, based in Meolo (Venice), which installed the system: “The brief I got from the client was above all to ensure a considerable increase in intelligibility and flexible control of the various sectors - there are approximately thirty microphones used by officiates and singers in seven different zones of the church."
As he had detailed knowledge of the Basilica and its logistics, Mazzon designed the signal management system, whereas, for the actual acoustic design, he contacted RCF’s dedicated in-house division, in the person of Francesco Venturi, who presented a detailed report and acoustic simulation documentation along with the definitive design.
The main problem to be solved consisted in the different sound coverage required from the system (ranging from a few metres to thirty), which had to ensure considerable spl as well as extremely even distribution, achieving better intelligibility without increasing the reverberation problems typical of this type of location.
Due to the building’s architectural classification, each array had to have a colour that ensured it was almost invisible.
Mazzon enthuses: “The VSA systems provide the ideal solution to both these aspects, thanks to their remarkable sound pressure and precision and a ‘custom’ finish, which solved the aesthetic problems.”
The ten VSA 2050 arrays cover the “congregation” zone of the Basilica and are mounted on the church’s impressive columns, forming a main sound front made up of six systems covering the front area of the naves and the transept, while the other four are mounted twenty metres further forward and appropriately delayed, to cover the rear portion of the naves. Two compact RCF MR 33WT enclosures installed below the ambos optimize the coverage of the first rows of worshippers.
Thanks to the its powerful DSP circuit, connected directly digitally to the twenty Class D 50W amplifiers, the VSA 2050 processes the audio signal fed to each of its twenty loudspeakers to control their vertical dispersion, driving them with the necessary power for ensuring excellent dynamics and addressing the appropriate area to be covered.
Various other types of RCF enclosures were installed in the Basilica, both indoors and outside: seventeen two-way passive loudspeaker columns (versions CS 6940 and 6520) are installed in other seven zones if the huge church, including the entire area of the presbytery and the Pala d’Oro (the high altar’s splendid retable), the Baptistery, the chapel of St. Isidore and the narthex.
Three MR33T “service” enclosures are positioned at the two organs (as monitors for the organists) and in the vestry. On particularly important occasions, six H6045 fibreglass multi-cell long-throw exponential horn speakers, each fitted with four D5076 drivers, are mounted outside the basilica with special fast-lock hardware and cover the entire square.
When installation work was completed, RCF technicians took a series of measurements to ensure that the system’s performance perfectly achieved the acoustic objectives set by the client.
On Sunday, 8th of May at the Basilica of San Marco in Venice, the Pope will host the third Assembly of the Church of the Patriarchate of Venice arranged for the closure of the Pastoral Visit of the Patriarch and his main collaborators of the different parishes.
