Barcelona, Spain (October 23, 2006)–The Granollers Theatre Auditorium just north of Barcelona, Spain, was completed not too long ago, and now sports a d&b PA, chosen by head of sound David Carrión.
The Granollers Theatre Auditorium outside Barcelona, Spain sports a d&b PA.”The chosen system had to be powerful and neutral enough to do any kind of show, from rock to theatre,” Carrión said. “It was critical that the design included well-placed sound sources to create correct virtual imaging for theatre. Our technical director, Jordi Tarrida, and myself invited an open contest to all brands. We eventually made our decision based on a number of important factors: live audition with an orchestra; acoustic studies and sound design; pricing; safety issues; size, weight, and special color options and new technologies in both hardware and software. We chose a d&b audiotechnik system following all the comparisons, and although pricing was a factor, this was not the primary issue.”
David Rosello of d&b audiotechnik Spain designed the system and local supplier Toni Puig of Sonostudi handled the installation. “The main PA is d&b’s Q-Series in a Left/Center/Right configuration,” commented Rosello. “The reason to chose the Q-Series loudspeakers for the main system instead of d&b’s Ci-Series installation-based loudspeakers was to get as much gain before feedback as possible while working with the electronic acoustic enhancement system. However, Ci80s were used on the sidewalls in a Left/Right/Rear surround configuration with further Ci80s mounted in the ceiling.”
