Norway (July 18, 2013)—On his most recent tour through Germany, reggae artist Sean Paul brought along an Adamson Energia E15 line array PA provided by Hamburg, Germany-based COBRA sound light.
"The tour was very compact—Sean Paul played at 10 venues in 12 days with seating ranging anywhere from 3,000 to 7,000," explained Michael Buchner, partner at COBRA sound light. "It was important that the system be flexible and scalable. Fortunately, we had just added the E15s to our inventory, which were exactly what was required."
The tour traveled with 24 E15 line array modules powered by 8 Lab.gruppen PLM 20000Q amplifiers. The size of the left-right arrays varied depending upon the size of each venue and the amount of audience area to cover.
Use of Adamson's Shooter software facilitated the use of the system in each venue. "The Shooter software really simplifies set-up from venue to venue," adds Buchner. "It is easy to get the system up and running and then optimize it for the room quickly and easily."
COBRA sound light also provided an Avid Venue Profile desk at FOH and a Yamaha PM5D-RH console at monitor for the Germany tour.
