In the last 12 months London-based rental company Podd Sound has supplied sound reinforcement equipment for PAs, live webcasts, launch parties and live performances for the likes of Daft Punk, Little Mix (pictured) and Olly Murs.
For the recent performances by Little Mix and Olly Murs, eight WL3082 elements and six WL212-sw subs were deployed, driven by six QSC PowerLight 380 amps, with DSP system management by twin SC28 processors.
Podd Sound owner Mat Podd, says: “I had the speakers arranged in a ground stack for the Olly Murs gig, and added the extra pair of subs to give me enough height to project the sound right across the audience. You get excellent dispersion from WideLine, as the name suggests, so I’ve found I don’t need side-fills in these smaller venues.”
“All in all, the WideLine-8 has been great for producing a detailed sound that doesn’t overpower the smaller rooms I’ve been working in lately. They’re easy to ship in and out, don’t weigh much, are only 50cm wide, and have got the fastest rigging and flying systems out there. For me it’s one of the best compact line arrays out there.”
