Adlib has supplied a Coda TiRAY sound system to Liverpool Philharmonic’s new venue, Music Room, a completely flexible space accommodating between 160 to 250 people depending on its configuration.
The venue, which opened in October 2015, has been built as part of the £14.5 million refurbishment of the 1939 Grade II listed Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.
For Music Room, Liverpool Philharmonic required a system that utilised existing infrastructure provided by capital development investment in the main auditorium, and which included racks, patch bays, facility panels and trussing that could deal immediately with events.
Adlib supplied six ultra-compact Coda TiRAY loudspeakers and two Coda TiLOW bass extension elements. The loudspeakers may be rigged as a single centre hang or split as conventional left and right stereo hangs. Either flown configuration may be augmented with additional Coda G18 subs to suit. However for many of the ‘lighter’ performances, the low frequency capability of the flown system is very good.
Two Coda HOPS8I speakers – also discreet and optimised for smaller spaces and nearfield applications may be used as near-stage fills and can also be wall-mounted at each side of the room.
The amplifiers are Coda LINUS10-C and LINUS5-Cs all controlled via Linus-Live software. These are pre-programmed with a series of parameters for different set ups which can be straightforwardly selected to suit each performance.
Gail Wroth, Liverpool Philharmonic’s head of production comments: “The new system enables the in-house production team to meet the ever changing requirements of the users of Music Room as well as enabling its development for corporate use within our in-house production services, expertise and facilities.”
Adlib’s John Hughes adds: “We are delighted that the installation of the Coda system in Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, both in the main auditorium and Music Room, has been so successful. We’re very proud to supply the venue, which is an iconic part of Liverpool’s rich and colourful musical life.”
