Duran Audio AXYS for West End production

Production sound designer Gregory Clarke (pictured) has opted for Duran Audio AXYS loudspeakers for Goodnight Mister Tom’s nine-week run at the Phoenix theatre in London’s West End.   Clarke first used AXYS loudspeakers on Misterman at the National Theatre earlier this year, which he said was “a great experience,” prompting his choice for Goodnight Mister Tom.   “The proscenium system is made up of six AXYS Scope T2115s with another two AXYS Scope T2112s as a centre cluster. The transparency and clarity of the boxes is unbelievable. One of the amazing things about them is you put them up in the air and point them at the audience and they sound great out of the box. That said when you do need to apply EQ even the most subtle of changes can be heard,” said Clarke.   Stage Sound Services supplied the AXYS loudspeakers, as well as the rest of the sound equipment for the show. Phil Hurley, the company’s MD and founder explained: “We were the first rental company in the world to invest in the AXYS G2 loudspeakers. At the time I said that I thought these loudspeakers would become a new standard within the theatre market and were now starting to see more and more designers specifying them.”
