South Africa:

The Audiosure team, together with Robert and Paul McGill from Sound X Perience, has installed a compact Martin Audio Line Array system with an Allen & Heath SQ Digital Mixing system and AKG Microphones at the newly built hall at the Ga-Rankuwa campus of the Tshwane University of Technology. The system is designed to be used for graduation ceremonies and events at the hall and is focused more on public address than music playback. That being said, the Audiosure team made sure that there was plenty of power required for music entertainment if needed.

The installation in the hall consists of six WPM boxes per side and two SX218 Double 18-inch Bassbins flown from anchor points in the wall. The WPM boxes have dual 6.5-inch LF drivers inside with three 1.4-inch aluminium dome HF drivers. Two passive Blackline X12s are positioned on the front of the stage as front fills and a single Blackline X12 Powered is set up as an on-stage monitor. At the rear of the venue, two CDD12s are pole mounted and dropped from the high ceiling to cover the upper balcony seating area and a further three CDD8s are mounted underneath the balcony.

The entire rig is driven by three of Martin Audio’s IK42 Dante enabled amps with a Martin Audio ASF14020 8-port network switch connecting all three amps to the network. Audio power is harnessed, controlled and mixed with an Allen & Heath SQ5 Digital Mixer at the FOH, connected to two AB168 stage boxes via CAT5 cable. The primary AB168 is located upstairs in the control room above the stage where it is near the wireless microphones and IK Digital Amplifiers. The secondary AB168 is positioned at the back of the stage for localised inputs and outputs.

Chauvet Pro and Eve Fixtures are installed on the three lighting bars in the hall. The front bar has 16 EVE P140VW Variable White’s and four EVE P130RGB with Barndoors and the bar on the back of the stage has six P130RGB’s. The lights are routed to the Chauvet Pro Net X II DMX distributor and controlled by a Chamsys QuickQ20. The QuickQ20 also has built in Wi-Fi allowing the lighting operator to control the features from an Android or iOS device remotely.

Four channels of Wireless were needed for the venue. AKG WMS470 wireless systems were selected comprising two Handheld Transmitters featuring a D5 capsule, and two Instrument Sets: one with a CK99L Lapel Microphone and the other with a C555L Headset system.
