USA - When the city of Trussville, Alabama unveiled its new downtown entertainment district, the results were nothing short of spectacular. Complete with an amphitheatre-style concert stage and pavilion. The new PA system consists of 15 EAW ADAPTive Anna loudspeakers (arranged six left, three centre, six right), four EAW SB828 Dual Drive Subwoofers (two per side, stacked on stage) and six MW12 MicroWedges.
The central elements of Trussville’s downtown entertainment district are its new stage and pavilion. The stage will host large concert performances and national touring acts for up to 2,500 spectators. A 27ft-wide LED video wall will allow the stage to be used year-round for family movie nights, concert simulcasts and screening sports events, including football games.
ESB Group managed the installation and worked closely with consultants, MediaMerge. “We were called upon to help design an audio solution with a specific set of requirements from the city,” says Drew Breland, solutions architect/design engineer at ESB Group. “Having been a 10-year user of EAW equipment, we knew EAW’s Anna three-way full-range ADAPTive array module PA system was going to be an ideal fit for this project.”
The pavilion and amphitheatre are located within the new outdoor entertainment district, which required the PA system to be both rider-friendly and easy to use by city employees. The system not only needed to provide a high-quality product that met SPL levels but with homes around the venue, the system also needed good pattern control.
“The EAW Anna was chosen ultimately because of its great sound quality along with its ability to change coverage on the fly,” says Breland. “The venue can shift from a small to a large crowd very easily and with the ADAPTive system, it only takes about one second to recall the preset and realise the change. With the ADAPTive system, the city can go from covering only the front area including the pavilion or throw sound all the way to the cross street. This is important because we are able to limit the amount of noise pollution to the surrounding areas.”
