40 international Djs on 5 different stages entirely equipped with RCF TT+ Thouring and Theatre systems entertained thousands of people at the MAXIMAL 2010 Italian Electronic Music Festival in Novegro, near Milan.
The new TT+ Large Venues system, composed of TTL55-A line array modules and TTS56-A high power subwoofers, was used for the main stage while the others were provided with TTL33-A line arrays and TTS28-A subs. TT25-SMA coaxial stage monitors were used for the monitoring of the DJ’s consoles.
MAXIMAL 2010 has not just been a music festival but it has been conceived as a sensory journey through electronic music’s different dimensions and the world of digital art.
The concept of the event is to involve young people in a move out of the passive kind of entertainment experienced in most of the clubs. A path through four main environments represented by the different stages: Soul, Matter, Energy and Desire, each identified by a peculiar set design, sound, performances and digital art installations.
In order to realise this concept the choice of the sound amplification systems was a fundamental aspect to consider during the design of the event.
The sound at MAXIMAL 2010 had to be powerful and able to cover a huge area and in very high definition in order to transport the audience to the different worlds created by the Djs on each stage.
Fabio Pecis of Airone, the rental company that handled the event, commented: ”with the new Large Venues system by RCF we were able to obtain a perfect coverage of the vast area. The extreme audio clarity and sound definition that the system delivers even at the very high SPL required by an electronic music festival is astonishing and it has been a real key factor for the success of the show”.

Both models are equipped with a 3.5” woofer and a 1” tweeter and, thanks to the A1331 accessory, they offer a great variety of mounting possibilities.
The DU 31 includes a multi tap line transformer for the connection to 100 V constant voltage lines. A 25 V (8 W) socket make it possible to connect multiple speakers in parallel to a constant impedance line.
The DU 31AT features a power selector to control the wattage (8 W, 4 W, 2 W, 1 W, 0.5 W at 100 V) through a rotary switch on the front panel.
Thanks to the A1331 surface mount accessory kit is possible to quickly and easily install the DU 31 and DU 31AT on any flat surface offering an outstanding flexibility.

The new TV show of the famous Italian comedian and actor Maurizio Crozza is being amplified by an RCF’s TT+ High Definition Touring and Theatre system.
The show is aired live every Sunday night on La7 channel from Milan and features interviews to famous actors, politicians and unique performances of Italian and international artists. The show hosts an 11 piece orchestra conducted by well know Italian musician Silvano Belfiore.
Rental company Laboratorio Musica designed the acoustical project, completed the installation and the set up of the system managing the audio during the shows.
Vanis Dondi of Laboratorio Musica, commented: “ in a television show is fundamental to have a very compact sound system that is not disturbing the set design and the shooting area and that, at the same time, is able to deliver great sound definition and not interfere with the artists microphones. Our choice of set up, composed by two TTL31-A clusters and subwoofers TTS28-A, features all these characteristics coupled with a very easy set up and quick installation process. We were able to obtain a complete control of the acoustical dispersion and a perfect sound definition in the studio’s areas that we had to cover”.
For the orchestra and the main artists on stage, TT25-SMA coaxial stage monitors were chosen. Thanks to their low profile and great sound definition, they deliver high performance with a discrete stage presence.

The Santo Volto Church in Turin is an innovative house of worship composed by seven 35 m high towers, a subterranean multi-purpose room and a very large main room which seats 700.
Turin installer Videotape used the new VSA 2050 digitally steerable column speakers to complete the sound system of the important Church. It was, in fact, only necessary to install two sound columns in the niches at the side of the altar to optimize the listening in the main room.
VSA 2050 represents the ideal solution in critical acoustical environments, such as churches, where architectural constraints force to use a limited number of sound sources and where the distance to cover with a single speaker is quite big. Thanks to the use of modern DSP and to the software developed by RCF it is possible to control the acoustic beam to adapt the speaker to the ambience needs.
With this prestigious installation, the vast amplification system of the Church, entirely made with RCF products, is completed.

The VSA 2050 is a multi-amplified vertical steerable array that represents one of the latest RCF applications in terms of digital audio technology and is the ideal speaker for indoor installations where the critical acoustic environment is an issue and where moderate visual impact is required.
Thanks to the use of the latest DSP technology, the VSA 2050 processes the audio signal sent to each speaker for controlling its vertical acoustic dispersion to address the audio signal exactly to the listening area, avoiding to send the acoustic energy to ceilings and empty floors, thus not introducing bad reflections that would affect speech intelligibility, mainly in critical environments with high reverberation time.
State of the art transducers have been developed for the VSA, in order to offer the highest possible intelligibility and wider frequency response, according to RCF philosophy. The powerful DSP circuit is directly connected in digital domain to the twenty 50 W each Class-D technology power amplifiers, which are able to drive the 20 transducers with the optimal headroom. The amplification circuits include several protections and controls always to operate in safe mode.
Through the VSA RC (remote control) user friendly touch screen interface it is possible to select among three different group of presets that offer a remarkable easiness in the VSA 2050 configuration process. For two out of three groups of presets the only parameters that the operator has to insert, in fact, are the installation height of the column and the area to cover.
A structure in extruded aluminium has been made to offer a product with very limited architectural impact, light weight and simple installing operations.

Sistemi di amplificazione composti da diffusori della Serie P di RCF sono stati scelti per sonorizzare parte del St. Andrew’s Ground e del Britannia Stadium, rispettivamente stadi del Birmingham City FC e dello Stoke City FC.
Il St. Andrew’s Ground di Birmingham è stato inaugurato nel 1906 e le recenti ristrutturazioni hanno incluso un rinnovamento dell’impianto di amplificazione sonora che ad oggi deve coprire in maniera uniforme e con un elevato grado di intelligibilità ben 30.000 posti a sedere.
Grazie all’elevata resistenza alle intemperie (grado di protezione IP55), alla grande copertura, potenza e qualità sonora i diffusori P3115-T sono stati ritenuti i più idonei per l’amplificazione di diverse zone delle tribune. In aggiunta sono stati installati modelli P2110-T per amplificare il suono in alcune delle aree dietro alle porte del campo da gioco.
Inaugurato nel 1997, il Britannia Stadium di Stoke on Trent può ospitare fino a 28.400 spettatori a sedere. Anche per questa importante struttura sportiva sono stati scelti i modelli P3115-T e P2110-T in configurazione cluster per l’amplificazione di parte delle tribune.

RCF ha al suo interno un completo ufficio progettazione di sistemi internazionale composto da ingegneri acustici ed elettronici che lavorano a stretto contatto per fornire quotazioni per progetti per ogni tipologia di sistema in ogni parte del mondo.
Un recente esempio di questa attività è lo stadio realizzato nel governatorato di Abyan nello Yemen dove RCF, in collaborazione con il distributore Oasis Enterprises LLC, ha realizzato il completo impianto di amplificazione.
Per le tribune, il campo da gioco e l’esterno dello stadio sono stati scelti modelli P6215 impermeabili che garantiscono alti livelli di pressione sonora con un ampia e morbida diffusione in spazi medio-grandi.
L’impianto è stato completato dal sistema di gestione RX4000, certificato EN60849, che permette di controllare gli annunci e la diffusione musicale anche per situazioni di emergenza ed evacuazione.
