DAVE GIVES MONSTER ENERGY A BOOST WITH RCF
Standing out from the pack amongst Victoria’s growing list of newcomer Audio Video specialists, is Diverse Audio Visual Events (playfully abbreviated as ‘DAVE’). Working with a wide variety of high- end clients, ranging from major music festivals to international touring artists, Diverse AV have made a name for themselves as a dedicated and knowledgeable events production team. To help them achieve the high standard of audio quality expected by their top clients, Diverse AV make use of RCF’s HDL loudspeaker series.
"The HDL series gives us the modularity and sound quality we need in order fulfil client requirements in a changing landscape of event audio.”
The RCF HDL20-A is an Active line array speaker module and DAVE’s go-to unit for flown and ground-stacked array setups. With tour-grade solid mechanics, an extended 55Hz-20kHz frequency response, and a formidable 135 dB max SPL, the HDL20-A has become a mainstay of professional event audio.
Brad Hurle, the company’s Managing Director, says that RCF’s array technology has been an integral part of Diverse AV’s complete cross-hire package. “As our client-base increases, the demand for larger array-style setups has grown substantially. The HDL series gives us the modularity and sound quality we need in order fulfil client requirements in a changing landscape of event audio.”
One such event was the Aus-X Open, a massive dirt bike/supercross sports event sponsored by Monster Energy- a major client of Diverse AV, who take care of their AV requirements right across Australia and the Asia-Pacific, thanks to an extended crew of Audio Visual specialists.
Held at the prominent Marvel Stadium in the heart of Melbourne, the Aus-X Open featured an outdoor area set aside for Monster Energy to provide entertainment and engage in brand promotion. Diverse AV set up a stage and PA featuring 6 x HDL20-As on top of 2 x double-stacked RCF 8806-AS subwoofers- more than enough to provide a wide throw across the stadium terrace and grab the attention of punters.
Brad comments on the setup- “This was a straight-forward build, made even easier by how effortless the HDL units are to transport. We also find them very suitable for outdoor events like this one, where being able to control direction and throw distance is essential”.
Diverse AV continue to deliver quality event solutions across Australia and beyond, from all aspects of Audio Visual technology, with the drive to exceed expectations at every turn.
