One of London’s longest running independent live music venues, the Half Moon in Putney, has installed a new Flare Audio sound system.
Last month, PSNEuroperevealed that pro-audio supplier Orbital Sound has become the first distribution partner anywhere for Flare Audio Limited.
The installation includes the brand new SM15 stage monitors and V15C 15″-high SPL point source loudspeakers, making the Half Moon the first venue to have these installed. Q218 ultra sub cabinets and the flat panel SB21 deliver the low frequencies.
Chief engineer at the Half Moon, Stevie Wyatt, comments: ”What’s distinctive about Flare is how much power and clarity you get from such physically small boxes, it really is impressive. When you first see our subs, it’s hard to believe they are dual 18s, as the boxes are so incredibly compact, but the ingenious design delivers plenty of stomach kicking power and a smooth, complete response right down to the low end of the spectrum.
“Having seen various PA systems come through the Half Moon in my 15 years here, this is the first rig I can run virtually flat – it just sounds right. This has been reflected in the many positive comments I’ve been getting from punters and bands since the installation. Everyone is really complimentary about the rig. There’s some very clever design going on here, I’m definitely now a Flare convert and I look forward to seeing what else they bring out in the future,” continues Wyatt.
