UK rental company Delta Sound has added 32 EMS-122w wide dispersion, passive 12” loudspeakers from EM Acoustics to its core rental stock.
The EMS-122w is specifically geared towards applications requiring a compact, powerful, full-range loudspeaker.
The background to the purchase was the need to source 32 12” loudspeakers and flying frames within a short lead time for a specific rental project. Installation had to take place within a month and remain on site for nine months, with the system in operation 12 hours per day, six days per week.
Delta Sound’s operations director, Jon Bell, commented: “EM Acoustics turned out to be a natural choice for us. We have known the guys at EM for many years and have been using their products with great success in several installations. Once the opportunity arose in the form of this project to purchase a complete system, we took it. EM manufactured and delivered all the speakers within two weeks. Building the flightcases alone took longer than that! We’re using Full Fat Audio FFA-6004 four-channel amplifiers to drive the EMS-122ws, which we purchased off the shelf and work faultlessly with the EM enclosures. It’s an excellent combination. Once the boxes have come off the current hire, they’ll make an excellent addition to our day-to-day inventory.”
For EM Acoustics’ operations director, Mike Wheeler, the investment confirms the manufacturer’s ascension to the big league. “Five years ago, it would have been unthinkable that a company like Delta would invest in products from EM Acoustics,” he said. “Today, it’s no longer the case. They know they can rely on the products to do the job and on us as the manufacturer to deliver on time and support them to the hilt. We have achieved a lot of milestones in the last twelve months – and the investment in our products by a major rental company such as Delta Sound is one of them – and we are set to announce further significant company developments in the very near-future. Thanks again to Delta for their confidence in us, and we’re looking forward to 2012.”
