New York (June 18, 2012)—Persian singer Googosh recently performed for a 6,500-strong audience in Hamburg, Germany. Audio provider Soundart GmbH & Co. KG fielded a D.A.S. Aero 50 line array system for the show, which was held at the O2 World arena.
Lars Schnier, a D.A.S. Audio system engineer, opted for a left/right configuration of 10 Aero 50 units on each side of the stage as the main PA system, plus eight Aero 12A systems as PA out fill. The system was supplemented by 15 LX-218A powered subwoofers in cardioid formation. The Aero 50 system was operated using 16 Lab.gruppen FP 10000Q amplifiers and four Lake LM 26 processors, which actively powered Aero 12A systems via two D.A.S. DSP-4080 system controllers.
Schnier remarked that D.A.S measurement tools were “very useful,” adding, “we were able to determine all of the parameters in advance of the concert, which saved us a great deal of time, particularly in terms of construction, in combination with the excellent handling of the system. Speaker performance is very strong. Both systems have excellent output reserves and reproduce music extremely accurately—something that was particularly noticeable during the complex arrangements performed by the artist.”
