Belgium’s AED Rent has boosted its L-Acoustics inventory with the purchase of 96 KARA modular WST line source cabinets, 66 of the new ARCSII constant curvature WST line source cabinets, 50 SB28 subwoofers and 36 LA-RAK touring racks to their professional AV rental stock. The purchase follows a massive order for JBL’s VTX loudspeaker system, reported on earlier by PSNEurope, and comes just over a year after a prior large L-Acoustics order. AED Rent account manager Koen Conaerts (pictured left with AED Rent’s Glenn Roggeman and Piet Verstraete) cited a number of different reasons for the investment, including this year’s large-scale sporting events such as the 2012 Olympics and UEFA Euro 2012 football championship and, in general, to support their AV clients through a busy summer. “This year is a special one, and there are a lot of L-Acoustics users that need more equipment,” said Conaerts. “We can now provide them with that extra equipment. We specifically bought the LA-RAKs as we’re updating our stock to the K-Standard; with a huge stock like ours it takes some years to arrive at that point, and now we are almost there.” Adds L-Acoustics sales manager Tim McCall, “Such substantial and ongoing investment in L-Acoustics systems underlines the very close and successful relationship that AED and L-Acoustics enjoy. AED was very quick to pick up on the benefits of the standard LA-RAK infrastructure for its business model, as well as to see the excellent technical and business reasons for investing in our newer systems such as KARA and ARCSII. We know that AED will be very busy this summer supporting their customers across Europe and we wish them all possible success in this unique year and many more to come.” www.l-acoustics.comwww.aedrent.be
