In advance of the celebrations to mark its 40th anniversary, Ireland’s University of Limerick has invested in a new Electro-Voice XLVC line array system. Limerick-based Murt Whelan Sound installed the new system in the University Concert Hall, used for lectures by day and serving as a concert hall for a diverse range of music by night. To achieve minimum reverberation, the designers opted for an unusual solution: a mono hang flown above the stage, composed of XLD elements. For this, nine Electro-Voice XLD281 three-way elements were flown in a central array, flanked by Electro-Voice XCS312 cardioid subwoofers. “Our wide range of experience in the rental sector strongly influenced these decisions,” said company owner Murt Whelan, “as it did also when it came to the foldback on stage”. Two ground stacks flank the stage, comprising four XLD elements and an Xsub while FRi-2082 two-way loudspeakers have been used for lip fills. For the hard-to-cover balcony area, Whelan opted for two TS400 vertical array loudspeakers from Dynacord as well as four EVF-1152S systems. Four Electro-Voice ZX1 loudspeakers, five Dynacord CXM 15 monitors and two Electro-Voice ZXA1 boxes in the control room rounded off the installation. The system is driven by 15 Electro-Voice CPS 2.12 amplifiers plus three PA2250T units for the 100-volt lines. It is governed by two NetMax N8000 digital matrix controllers configured using IRIS-Net software. www.electrovoice.com
