Sound Image joins Adamson’s Project Energia

Californian PA company Sound Image partners with Adamson to beta-test new E15 line source system, writes Erica Basnicki.

Sound Image, one of the US’s leading PA hire companies, has become the second American company (behind Eighth Day Sound Systems) to join Adamson’s Project Energia. As previously reported in PSNE, beta-testing of Adamson’s new PA system has been met with much favour by beta partners in US, Europe, and Asia. The investment in Adamson’s E15 system compliments Sound Image’s inventory of Y-Axis and T21s, acquired in 2007. “Adamson kept us closely informed as Energia was developing,” says Sound Image president, David Shadoan, pictured here, right, with director of touring Mike Sprague. “As soon as beta testing began, we confirmed that we would join in Phase One (of the technology roll-out). The Sound Image philosophy is to deliver leading technology and to stay ahead of the curve. Energia was a simple choice. This system is progressive and a very powerful solution. We look forward to getting it on the road,” According to Adamson, Project Energia began “after years of analysing the inefficiencies found in sound reinforcement and performance venue optimization.” Phase One of project Energia involves the evaluation of transducers, sound chambers, and the mechanical elements of the system by beta partners. Adamson systems engineering president, Brock Adamson said: “Dave and his team package and deliver a quality product and service to a wide range of artists. We have worked together with Sound Image for years and their engineers always come back wanting more. They offer a strong presence in international touring and we are happy to see them join the growing team of global Energia users.” Sound Image has provided PA systems for high-profile artists including Lenny Kravitz, Gwen Stefani, and Eric Clapton.
