outlineJamiroquai’s performance was appreciated by thousands of fans
Italy - Outline GTO PA system was used during the performance of electro-funk superstars Jamiroquai at the Firenze Summer Festival held in Florence's Cascine Park.
A year after its successful deployment at a similarly memorable Florence concert by Sting, Outline’s GTO systems was once more centre stage, but with a totally different music genre.
Outline product specialist Vincent ‘Vinnie’ Perreux explained: “The PA was designed by Outline and Tuscan rental firm Emporio On Stage, based on the predictions of Outline’s Open Array 3D software.”
Angelo Catoni, owner of Emporio On Stage, added, “I’d worked with Jamiroquai FOH engineer Rick Pope in the past, so knew what he’d want for the band as far as the PA was concerned and in fact our design met with all-round satisfaction right from the paperwork stage. The enclosures respond really well as far as directivity is concerned, ensuring coverage exactly where they are pointed, so we were able to limit the majority of the sound to the audience area.”
The set-up comprised a 12-deep GTO hang per side as the main L&R system, each with two underslung GTO-DF down-fill enclosures plus six LIPF-082 front-fill enclosures covered the first rows of the crowd, plus two 12-element Mantas 28 hangs covering the stand seating to the sides.
Jamiroquai’s style of music relies on powerful, extended low-frequency reproduction and Emporio On Stage deployed 20 Outline DBS 18-2 subs plus eight LAB 21 infra-sub units.
FOH Rick Pope has worked with the band for over 20 years but was on his first outing with a GTO rig. In spite of local SPL limits within which Emporio On Stage were obliged to work, Rick was satisfied: “It was the first time I’d used this system and I was really pleased with it - it perfectly met the requests I made.”
