Copenhagen, Denmark (September 28, 2017)—When the new Royal Arena opened in Copenhagen a few months ago, the first act to play it was Metallica, but the ‘hometown’ opening came a few days later when the country’s own metal heroes, DizzyMizzLizzy and D-A-D, headlined the facility.
Ensuring all 16,000 in attendance heard every note was audio provider DPA Soundco of Copenhagen, which fielded a sizable CODA Audio system for the occasion.
DPA Soundco brought in 60 AiRAY, 42 ViRAY and 24 LA12 boxes, bolstered by a half-dozen SCV and 28 SCP subs, plus 16 SC-3 bass extension boxes.
Driven by 56 CODA Linus10 DSP amplifiers, the system brought it all home.
DPA system tech, Ulrik 'Thunder' Rasmussen, recalled the evening, noting, “The engineers for both bands were blown away by the PA and said its output was unbelievable. The CODA gear really is extremely powerful for its size and delivers very high resolution and fantastic projection. The sound is really 'in your face' but the clarity is still exceptional and the low-end is warm, tight and distortion free. The fact that CODA systems are all seamlessly compatible meant that we were able to get exactly what we wanted for optimum coverage in the arena without any problems."
