Japanese rental company Super 4 has made a major Martin Audio investment, having ordered 18 x WPC elements and 6 x SX218 subwoofers from Martin Audio Japan.
The WPC PA is a three-way, bi-amped systems, which is a new version of a medium-format optimised line array, and brings an acoustic design, as well as coverage consistency to a variety of applications and budgets.
Based in Takamatsu, Kagawa, Japan, Super 4's VP, Mr Higasa commented on the company's new investment: “It has been 18 years since we established the company, and during that time we have expanded from our first purchase of a microphone, up to the level where we can handle major events by ourselves. All the while we have watched developments with Martin Audio, and having experienced MLA and MLA Compact, and understood the philosophy behind the consistency of sound as well as the capability to control noise spill.”
He continued: “Today’s PA is not only for the satisfaction of sound engineers but also for the clients and the audience,” he notes. “It is important for us to satisfy everyone and meet all considerations.”
Super 4's president, Mr. Seki, said: “Recently, this has been increasingly focused on entertainment and so the sound quality for the show is getting more important. We know that WPC will be able to deliver clear and powerful sound to every seat in the arena — and this is our absolute ideal in terms of quality.”
Higasa concluded: “I am very excited to see how it will contribute to our business in terms of quality and scalability,” he continued. “At the same time we have also introduced [Martin Audio] XE300 to our hire stock. The low profile design is excellent and I was surprised how powerful it is in spite of not requiring any major tuning. This will be extremely useful when set-up time is restricted.”
