Museum Speelklok installs Renkus-Heinz

Erica Basnicki 20 February 2012

Museum Speelklok – dedicated to Europe’s largest display of street organs – has recently acquired a Renkus-Heinz IC Live system installed by TM Audio. This has allowed the museum to turn its central space – formerly a church nave – into a live performance area. It had rarely been used previously due to its poor acoustics.   "I took a lot of expert advice and several sound systems were tested in the nave. Many people came to listen, including our resident system engineer, GertJan Schoutsen – and the verdict for us all was clearly the Renkus-Heinz IC Live,” said Haspels.   The IC Live system consists of four 8-channel Renkus-Heinz ICL-R digitally steerable columns, mounted in one double stack per side atop matching IC215 2×15" self powered subwoofers. These take their signal via RHAON (Renkus-Heinz Audio Operations Network) from a 16 channel Yamaha 01V96 with an Allen & Heath iDR8 digital mix processor. The stage is covered by four Renkus-Heinz CF121M2 12+2" self powered monitors.   TM Audio project and application engineer Olaf Landzaat commented: "IC Live dealt with the acoustical issues, which are typical for a church. With conventional loudspeakers you’d get a lot of reflections whereas with IC Live you can manipulate the beams to reduce reflections, to get as good speech intelligence and sound as possible."
