A Dynacord Cobra system was deployed during a day of celebrations in Munich that incorporated this year’s largest St. Patrick’s Day parade on the European mainland.
More than 20,000 spectators and 1,200 participants graced the 2011 St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Parade Party in Munich.
The event concluded with performances from artists including three-time Eurovision Song Contest winner Johnny Logan on a specially-prepared stage in Munich’s Odeonsplatz.
The sound production for the event was the responsibility of M7 Veranstaltungstechnik, which opted for a Dynacord Cobra-4 system to cope with the wide variety of performance types – from live music to comedy to dance.
The Cobra-4 system deployed for this project comprised one Dynacord Cobra-4 Far, two Cobra-4 Top and 12 Dynacord Cobra-PWH enclosures on each side of the stage – the latter to reinforce the low frequency range. The foldback was provided by Dynacord M12 monitors.
“The Cobra-4 is a powerful, compact system, which in comparison to other line arrays is very easy to operate,” said M7 Veranstaltungstechnik MD Stefan Linnerer. “Another immense advantage of the Cobra-4 is the swift and unproblematic setting-up and dismantling of the system. Here, the organisers could only allow us two hours for setting-up – an extremely tight schedule, but one we nonetheless met with ease.”
The feedback from event organisers was extremely positive. “[They] told us that in all the years they’d been staging the event, they had never heard such good sound,” added Linnerer.
