Berlin-based hire company Complete Audio has supplied a Martin Audio MLA system for German electronic musician and actor Paul Kalkbrenner’s pan-European 'Guten Tag' tour. In total, Complete Audio is providing 26 MLA enclosures, two MLD downfills, 16 MLA Compacts and 18 MLX subs (scalable to suit the venue). The main hang normally ranges between nine and 13 MLA plus MLD, in L/R configuration, with MLA Compacts flown as outfills where necessary – and other nearfills and infills deployed. After experimenting with the MLX sub configuration, “we tried broadside – with and without cardioid layout – but after a couple of shows, we found the best set-up to be three MLX stacked on top of each other, outside on each flank, with the other MLX’s arranged in stacks of two facing forward alongside the stage,” explained Complete Audio’s MD André Rauhut. “This broadside approach, accompanied by two ‘in your face’ stacks on the outsides, provides both an even coverage and some real punch,” added Rauhut.
“MLA is the only system I know of that can cover a large arena with almost no difference in sound or level throughout the entire venue. www.martin-audio.com
