Mach SlingShot in Macau
Monday, 19 March 2001
The Mach SlingShot series was in use for the closing concert of the14th Macau International Music Festival. The Venue was Forum I, Macau - a 2000-capacity, indoor venue for multi-purpose activities including sport events and music concerts. Shalom AV Technology Limited (Hong Kong & Macau’s sole agency) and Master Piece Light & Audio Engineering Co (one of Macau’s largest rental companies) provided all lighting, sound equipment and rigging for the show. Master Piece is the first rental company in Macau to introduce the Mach SlingShot for daily use.

A total of eight Mach SlingShot MS1262 three-way top boxes were used as the main reinforcement system. Flown clusters of two MS1262s per side served the front seats and an MS1262 served the side seats, while four MS118 bass cabinets were placed in front of the stage. An EV Dx38 was used as the system crossover for the front SlingShot top boxes and subwoofers to form the four-way system, Mach MS-3s crossover/controllers looked after the side-fills. The show featured a combination of classical and pop music which included the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra and a host of singers from Hong Kong, Macau, China and Europe including CoCo Lee, Eason Chan and Warron Mok. Chan Wai Man, chief sound engineer of Master Piece, Macau said: “The Mach loudspeaker provided good clarity, dynamic sound and the high sound pressure level needed for both classical and pop music. Also the dispersion angle was precise and easy to aim. Even a small amount of cabinets could provide enough sound level and clarity."
