The Outline loudspeaker system
in the theaterMolfetta (Bari), Italy (April 27, 2010)–Italy’s Miragica, Terra di Giganti, a large theme park covering 24 acres, recently installed Outline sound reinforcement systems.
Miragica boasts 19 attractions, which are a combination of shows and rides–some of which are “firsts,” including a Launch Coaster and a 4D cinema, which are the largest in Italy. For the park’s more courageous visitors, there’s the “Torre di Caduta” drop tower and the Diskò Coaster, a rotating platform that oscillates in all directions. There are also countless opportunities for amusement for families and kiddies, such as the classic trunks or the “Spaccatempo” spinning coaster.
Excitement of another type is guaranteed by the performances of internationally famous Stuntmen, as well as shows in the indoor, 700-seat theater (Gran Teatro) by famous artists from all over the world. There is also a large outdoor theater.
The permanently installed sound reinforcement systems at Miragica are by Outline, whose staff also provided direct consultancy for the audio project’s design. The main loudspeaker system in the theater consists of eight Outline Mini-Compass speakers (four per side) and two Subtech 218 SP subwoofers (all self-powered enclosures). Four compact (self-powered) Micra II SPs cover the front rows of the audience and four (self-powered) H.A.R.D. 115 SPs are used as stage monitors.
For the Launch Coaster, eight enclosures from the DVS series (DVS 8) and two due Outline T4 power amplifiers were installed. Ten more DVS 8s are used to reinforce the sound for attractions such as the Fiume Ride, Torre di Caduta, Diskò Coaster, Spinning Coaster and the 4D Cinema.
At the Dancing Fountains and the Show Area, there are four Outline Kanguro 1215 NET SPs (a patented system consisting of a 15-inch sub able to contain another enclosure fitted with a 12-inch mid-woofer and 1.75-inch compression driver).
For the restaurant, rehearsal rooms, fast food court, bars and shops, there are 26 Outline IS 8 enclosures, eight ultra-compact IS 6T enclosures, eight ceiling-recessed IC 5T loudspeakers and three Outline (4-channel) D4-3K power amplifiers.
The Outline equipment was installed and fine-tuned by Giancarlo Paladini of GP Tecnologie, based in Brescia (as is Outline.
