Electro-Voice Rocks Tasmania

June 21st, 2007

Production Works were tasked with providing a complete turnkey arena production at the Royal Hobart Showgrounds. The package ranged all the way from a complete roofed main stage with loading docks and a second undercover stage, through PA, monitors and lighting, to full backline for multiple bands and production communications.

Both stages were almost entirely kitted out with gear from the Bosch Communications Systems family of brands.

Mixing consoles were an all-Midas affair: Main stage FOH was mixed on a Midas XL200 with an XL250 for monitors; on the smaller indoor stage a Verona 400 mixed FOH and a Sienna 400 took care of monitors.

The Main stage FOH system for the 12,000-strong audience comprised 30x XLC compact line array boxes and 16x Xsubs, with XW15 monitor wedges and X-Array side fills. Everything was powered by EV P3000 amplifiers. FOH for the indoor stage (with an audience of 1,500) was a large Dynacord Cobra system, with EV monitors and a Dynacord Madras system for side fill. All equalization and speaker control on both stages was handled by Klark Teknik equipment.

The XLC system acquitted itself flawlessly, cruising its way through ten bands during the 12 hour gig without even raising a sweat. Although Production Works is already very impressed with the excellent performance of their XLC system, they are looking forward to upgrading their cabinets to the improved DVX specification.

In addition to the Ethernet-over-power local area computer network employed to track channel allocations during the high-speed Main stage band changeovers, all voice communications were via a Telex wired beltpack system interfaced with BTR800 RadioComms.

The systems engineers from Production Works found that, without exception, the engineers who came in to mix the bands were pleased to be working on well-known and well-understood industry standard Midas consoles. Despite the availability of a digital console, in a festival environment that allowed no time for major system setups or sound checks between acts, the reliability and familiarity of the Midas analog desks was the unanimous choice.
