An Outline sound reinforcement system has been installed in the Kashubian Philharmonic Hall, located in the city of Wejherowo in northern Poland. Gdańsk-based Outline distributor Ambient System was called in to provide a system which, as well as ensuring high quality sound and even coverage throughout the 400-seat auditorium, had to be able to be easily moved outdoors for larger events.
Ambient System’s electro-acoustic system specialist Pawel Zakrzewski explained, “We therefore had to find a system that was big enough for outdoor events, but not too aggressive, as well as being ideal for smaller indoor performances in the concert hall. Our clients also specified that the equipment installed had to be compatible with visiting acts’ rider requirements.” The main rig’s configuration features a L-R set-up, with each hang comprising six Outline Butterfly CDH. 483 line array elements for mid-high frequency reproduction and a Butterfly CDL 1815 enclosure handling the low end. A pair of Outline DBS 18-2 passive subwoofers for sub-bass extension are positioned at either side of the stage and four Outline Mantas used on front fill. Four Outline iSM 115 powered monitors and six Outline iSM 212 wedge monitors are on hand for stage monitoring and the set-up’s powerhouse comprises four Outline T-Five amplifiers (driving the Butterfly CDL 1815 and front fills enclosures) and eight Outline T-Seven units (for the Butterfly CDH 483 and subs). “This configuration works well for the venue, because it’s designed to be very flexible,” said Zakrzewski. “For opera productions, classical concerts or other events not requiring high-level subwoofer content, the sound team can disconnect the Outline DBS 18-2 subwoofers and remove them if necessary, as the main hangs are able to ensure top-grade sound down to 40Hz.” www.outline.it
