When Tom Chennells merged his previous company Wavelength Entertainments into Yes Events back in 2011, he brought with him a clutch of RCF 905AS and ART 722AS loudspeakers. But he could little have realised that seven years later he would be operating three divisions from a 13,000 sq. ft purpose industrial unit, housing £2m of sound, lighting, staging, rigging, video and power equipment — including more than 200 loudspeakers from RCF (his sole speaker supplier). 

Yes’s recent addition of 24x HDL 6-A composite line array enclosures is the latest stage on a journey that took them from those early ART boxes to TT+ (TT25-A, TTS-28-A, TT 08-A lightweight monitors), and into the new technology of the Bluetooth enabled EVOX JMIX8.

With the company now split into three sections — Yes Events, Yes Production and Yes Hire — Chennells realises the value of having access to a product catalogue that covers all bases, and meets all budget requirements.

With a background in high-end DJ work he also sensed the value of being able to offer a turnkey infrastructure, while his love for RCF had blossomed during those earlier days when he was running pole-mounted ART series speakers with his roadshow.

Once he had merged Wavelength with Nick Ratcliffe’s Yes Events he was soon buying bigger TT+ systems, such as the TTL33-A, and today points to client requirements for more sophisticated production as the reason for his 20-30% growth in turnover during the past three years to a multimillion pound annual operation.

Why such a large RCF inventory? “You start by purchasing a few pieces of a certain product, and when you see such great results it’s an easy decision to keep adding further stock. Every box has a purpose — from the simpler standalone point and shoot boxes such as HD10-A, HD12-A and the very cost effective ART3 and EVOX ranges which make a great choice for wedding and rental customers.

“The rental stock extends through to a large amount of the premium industry leading TT+ and HDL. We should give special mention to the little TT052-A. It is so discreet that it is easy to hide away on corporate events at places such as The Shard and equally at home as lip fill in large shows.”

In the corporate world Yes Events has had the privilege to work with many A-list acts, Elton John, Beverley Knight, Duran Duran, Tony Hadley to name a few, along with corporate giants such as Disney, while they have provided PA for many sporting events right across outdoor venues and arenas the UK.

Aside from budget considerations, and RCF’s legendary matched componentry of their active systems, what other compelling reasons are there? “Simple,” says Tom. “You don’t need to do much to the systems on set up. 99% of the time you just plug in, stand back and it sounds great.

With limited set-up times at some shows this is a massive attribute. There is also a good rental network of RCF users now and great support from RCF UK … it’s a nice relationship.” Anyone who attended the recent RCF Open Day at G-Live in Guildford will have noted how Tom Chennells evangelised the HDL6-A (hence Yes’s recent investment). “The cost and weight are amazing for what it can deliver and it’s a great way to get people into a focused sound system with so much control over directivity. At G-Live we put up eight [elements] with a flybar per side; this system comfortably throws 50 metres and yet it weighs less than 100kg a side, which is amazing.”

RCF will highlight a vast range of new products at this year’s BITAM Show. The new RCF product line features innovative solutions, design upgrades and exciting new advances in audio technology. Following the HDL 30-A philosophy, RCF officially launches the two-way bi-amped line array HDL 28-A, featuring RCF’s proprietary RDNet Networked Management in a lightweight cabinet featuring high accuracy on voice intelligibility and the ubiquitous FiRPHASE.

Widely appreciated, and globally used as the primary portable system for on-the-go musicians and DJs, the EVOX speaker series showcase its new twin brothers, EVOX J8 and EVOX JMIX8. Built on the high-quality analog path found in the RCF professional E series, the new F Series mixing consoles comprises four fully-featured mixers from six to 16 channels, offering multi-FX, Single Control Compressors, and Recording capabilities.

The RCF booth will further exhibit the new range of touring TT+ speakers such as the TT 10-A, TT 08-A II, the double 8” low-profile wedge monitor TT 20-CXA and the innovative TTP/TTL 4-A. Because of the innovative rigging concept and a rotatable/swappable waveguide, the TTP/TTL 4-A is a brand new speaker concept worth a visit.

FiRPHASE processing drives all the new self-powered RCF speakers, allowing 0° phase compatibility between the entire RCF speaker range, delivering transparent sound, absolute clarity, and perfect sonic image to the listener. 

The RDNet Networked Management sees improvements with the 3.2 release, such as real-time air compensation, the inclusion of the Shape Designer, the RCF two-dimensional simulation software and the new Bass Shaper function, to achieve the desired timbre on low frequencies and maintain the desired tonal balance across the entire system.

Después de una total restauración del interior de su autobús de gira italiano, que contó con una importante mejora de sonido para incorporar los pequeños pero potentes RCF HDL 6-A de RCF, Red Bull Music comenzó a rodar por la península italiana con el festival itinerante LIVE IT.

El autobús, un FIAT 309 de los años 60, se convirtió temporalmente en hogar, local de ensayo y escenario para los artistas del certamen. Esta gira ofreció 24 días completos de música a un público que ascendió a las 112.000 personas. Los acompañaban 25 técnicos, 7 ingenieros de sonido, un director de autobús de giras, otros 35 artistas participantes en la gira y un total de 156 artistas convocados a los festivales.

El techo del autobús se transforma rápidamente en un escenario en cuestión de minutos. Sus lados, equipados con la iluminación y los line arrays de RCF, se sitúan en posición rápidamente. Diez módulos de line array HDL 6-A, complementados por cuatro unidades SU 8004-AS, forman un array de más de cinco metros de altura que permite cubrir grandes espacios. 

Daniele Giraldi, ingeniero de sonido y propietario de SPS Audio, usó el sistema durante L’Umbria che Spacca, un festival que «ya usa sistemas similares con SPS Audio», afirma. «No dudamos ni un momento en utilizar el HDL 6-A», continúa Daniele. 

«Es un sistema versátil que combina componentes ligeros con un nivel de presión sonora excelente. Los subwoofers son potentes y compactos. El sistema responde bien al techo dinámico del mezclador, y tiene un sonido claro y potente». Michael Gario, ingeniero de sonido independiente del Red Bull Music Tour Bus, que trabajó como técnico de FOH durante el Reload Sound Festival, comentó: «El sistema de sonido RCF me sorprendió desde el momento en que lo escuché en el Red Bull Tour Bus. A pesar de su pequeño tamaño, demostró inmediatamente tener la potencia de un sistema de sonido mucho más grande. Se podía escuchar una frescura agradable en las altas frecuencias que no molestaba al oído, unos medios perfectamente equilibrados y unos bajos definidos con una pegada extrema. ¡Todo un placer para los oídos!»

Desde siempre, la festividad del 1 de mayo ha sido una gran ocasión para celebrar por todo lo alto, pero este año BRINGS, la banda de Colonia liderada por los hermanos Peter y Stephan Brings, montó algo revolucionario para festejar esa fecha. Y lo llamaron May Polka Party.

En realidad, fue más bien una quedada íntima con 13.000 fans y algunos invitados muy especiales. El objetivo: poner patas arriba el Lanxess Arena de Colonia en un concierto-maratón de más de cuatro horas. Y para los fiesteros empedernidos que no quisieran irse a casa, la fiesta se prolongó otras tres horas después del concierto.

TSL Productions utilizó productos RCF para conseguir un sonido de la máxima calidad. El sistema principal de megafonía contó con 32 módulos activos de line array de tres vías HDL 50-A (2x12", 4x6", 2x1,4") combinadas con 20 sub-bajos dobles (18") SUB 9006-AS. En dicha configuración se combinaron arrays de sub-bajos en configuraciones cardioides con alineación secuencial. El software RD-Net de RCF permitió conectar los subclústeres individuales en un subarco con retardos calculados para ofrecer una cobertura de bajos completa de delante hacia atrás.

El equipo de profesionales colocó 36 de los nuevos módulos activos de line array HDL 30-A (2x10", 1,4") en cuatro clústeres como sistemas auxiliares laterales para cubrir las zonas de las gradas. Esta fue la primera vez que se montaron junto con 16 sub-bajos activos VIO S118 de 18" de dBTechnologies (marca de RCF Group) en una configuración cardioide. Otros 18 módulos de line array dobles HDL 6-A" aportaban cobertura auxiliar en la parte frontal.

When Montana Pro Audio was called on to replace a 15-year-old sound system at the Beaverhead County Fair Rodeo Arena, they faced a scenario that limited their installation options leaving them to search and source the right product to both provide the coverage they needed and endure the outdoor elements of the rodeo arena. “The only placement options for the bleacher seats were light poles which are irregularly spaced with respect to the bleachers,” notes Montana Pro Audio Integration Manager Ryan Johnston. Plus, “the existing speaker wire to the far side of the arena was buried and would have to be reused for the updated system,” leaving them with pre-specified speaker positions. With that in mind, “We needed to select a loudspeaker system that would withstand the weather with fairly high output and low power ratings. We also needed a series that had different horn patterns that we could deploy based on throw distance, as due to the bleacher/pole layout we had to vary between shorter and medium distance throws.” Johnston continues, “We were also looking for a bracket mount option to simplify rigging and supply a stable mount for the speakers. “Plus the far side speakers would have to be powered with a 70-volt amplifier and stepped back down using an autoformer at the speaker end to maximize the amount of power we could send over the long, smaller gauge wire runs from the existing infrastructure.”

Serving an international fellowship of Christian students, the University of the Nations was born out of Youth With A Mission (YWAM), a highly decentralized international movement of Christians from many denominations. Their history dates back to 1978 when Pacific & Asia Christian University in Kona, Hawaii was founded. As their teachings spread to other campuses throughout the world, now with over 600 locations in 160 different nations, they have since adopted the new moniker University of the Nations. The 40-acre Kona campus is home to some 700 students offering Associate Degrees ranging from the arts to counseling and early childhood education to biblical studies. The campus is also home to the Aloha Lanai Cafeteria, Hawaii’s largest dining facility with a capacity of 3500. Nearly a decade ago Orlando, Florida-based Owens Audio Video Design was called on to implement a new system for their Ohana Court, an outdoor Worship area & basketball Court Being an open-air facility, that system was exposed to nature’s elements and getting tired. Over the years, and with advancements in loudspeaker technology, with the long-time relationship the university has with the integrator, they called upon Owens once again to refurbish the facility, this time specifically requesting a line array solution.
