Eko deploys Outline for Beethoven Rocks Netherland tour

Last week, rental company Eko Geluid & lichttechniek, based in Silvolde NL, took delivery of an Outline point-source system, which the company is currently using on the Beethoven Rocks tour across the Netherlands.   Eko’s Outline system comprises eight Outline Doppia II 5040, two Outline Doppia II 9075 and 12 Outline DBS 18-2 subwoofers, all are driven by nine Outline T-Series amps (5 & 11). Signal processing is managed by an Outline Genius 24.   The Doppia system has a volume of just 0.25 m3 and weighs 55 kg, in spite of its four large-diameter components and the sturdy fibreglass waveguides loading the mid-high frequencies (LF 2 x 12” – MF 1 x 10” – HF 1 x 3”).   It has a peak SPL of 139 dB at one metre with a frequency response ranging from 61 Hz to 19.7 kHz.   “Nowadays, it seems the market only thinks in terms of line arrays, but I can assure you that on many occasions a well-balanced conventional stack PA system is still a better choice than a poorly positioned line array system,” said Eko’s owner Erik Koster (pictured, left).   Axel Nagtegaal (pictured, right), owner of The Audio Specialists (Outline’s distributor for Benelux and Germany), added: “Outline is one of the few pro audio brands manufacturing powerful conventional stack PA systems as well as high performance line arrays. We realise there’s an on-going demand for these systems and Outline’s Doppia combined with DBS subs form an extremely powerful but easy to work with system that fulfills this demand.”    www.outline.it
