JBL and Soundcraft for Italian venue24 February 2014
An iconic industrial building in the Italian town of Montebelluna has been converted into the Mattorosso Restaurant & Live Bar. The building is also is home to one of Italy’s biggest MI shops, Esse Music Store.
Harman Professional distributor, Leading Technologies, installed the sound system in the venue: this consists of four JBL VRX932LAP powered, compact 12" two-way line-array elements, flown two per side, and four ground-stacked VRX918SP bass reflex subs.
Self-powered 12" PRX612 two-way speakers are used for stage monitoring and two PRX415 15” two-way speakers have been deployed for drum fills.
For the mixing console Leading Technologies recommended the Soundcraft Si Expression 2. It features 24 recallable mic pre amps, and MADI optical card expansion, with I/O capacity extended via a Compact Stagebox (32/16).
Marco Roveri says: “Many companies competed for this contract as they wanted to work in that prestigious building, but the owners chose Leading Technologies for the brands they represent and the back-up they knew they would get. They are extremely happy with the result, as were we, when we heard the system fired up on the opening night.”
