Set up at the bottom of a hillside within the picturesque Briars conservation park, Moon Mother’s HDL PA could be heard right across the event space- where it maintained a level of intelligibility at distances that surprised even their own lead engineer. Flying from a brand-new portable stage, the team’s loadout for the day included 6 x HDL 50-A’s per side, with 4 additional HDL20-As providing front fill. Never one to skimp on ‘wow-factor’, Moon Mother also included 6 x double-stacked 9006-AS subwoofers, providing formidable low-end and breathing life into the Ska, Funk, and Rock featured in the Winefolk lineup.
The RCF HDL 50-A is a large-scale array module that integrates 2 x 12” woofers, 4 x symmetrical 6.5” midrange transducers, and two 2” drivers into a lightweight tour-grade housing. With a digital amplifier capable of bringing each unit’s SPL up to a staggering 140dB, the HDL 50-A has become a very serious contender within the modular array market.
Spruiking the benefits of the HDL line was Moon Mother’s own Business Development Manager, Tim Dalton. “We’re very happy with the way this system sounds- and apparently so are the audience- as we’ve picked up 3 more clients today, just from the sound of the system. Admittedly we were a little bit apprehensive whilst setting this up -as it’s our first time flying them on this new stage- but it turns out they sounded great right off the bat, and with a few tweaks in RDNet, even better.”
