We opted to give out new LA-Raks their first outing. With L’ACOUSTICS V-DOSC as the main system, SB28’s covering sub duties and KARA providing front and out fills. Delays were covered by Turbosound Flex array cabinets powered by our tried and tested MC2 racks.

After our initial purchase, we are now please to be able to add the following items to our rental stock:
KARA / SB18 / 12XT / LA-Raks / M-Bumps / M-Bars

Best known for his 90’s single ‘I Wonder Why’, Stigers chose to take the popular Pro2 / DL251 system. TFM330’s are on wedge duty and a line system, microphone and stand package complete the line up.
As many venues have installed audio systems, we are providing more and more of our artist with monitor and stage systems to travel with them and their backline. This can ensure consistency whilst reducing load in times.
We regularly provide:
Monitor consoles, FOH consoles, IEM systems, power distribution, line systems, microphone packages, monitor speakers and amps and stage risers.

Twelve sports over eleven venues in four days.

Competition is held in twelve current and future Olympic and Paralympic sports: Fencing, Rugby Sevens, Gymnastics, Hockey, Badminton, Athletics, Cycling, Judo, Swimming, Table Tennis, Volleyball and Wheelchair Basketball.
We were asked to provide audio systems for each venue, with lighting systems installed where necessary.
First in was the gymnastics, which was staged at the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester. We installed seven hangs of Turbosound TFA600 series, with a mixture of H and HW elements, to supplement these, there were two hangs of L’Acoustics SB18’s and a single drop of Kara to cover the performance area.
Over the next two days we installed the systems into the remaining venues. Four venues were covered with Nexo PS Series, four with L’Acoustics HiQ’s and in the last two we used Turbosound TFM systems. All supplemented by Turbosound TSW218’s.
Control packages comprised of either LS9’s or M7CL’s, Mac Mini multi i/o playback systems with touch screens and Sennheiser RF and IEM systems.
