The Netherlands - Podium Victorie in Alkmaar has been a well-known venue for many years, hosting a wide range of classic and contemporary bands from all over the world.
Though very successful at its original location, Victorie recently moved, its operators opting for an exciting relocation into the city of Alkmaar. With an upgrade in venue, owners of the club decided this was a logical opportunity to upgrade their entire sound system. After reviewing numerous competitive demos, it was the Clair Brothers system demonstrated by The Audio Specialists that rose to the top.
The key in the new venue was to find the right balance to deliver a level of acoustic quality concertgoers and performers alike would appreciate as something truly special. The Clair Brothers demo made the decision easy because of the way it achieved acoustic balance in the new room from the start.
The main system install includes a Clair Brothers i212 line array supported with in-fill kiT series and in the smaller venue by several kiTCurve+ loudspeakers and subwoofers, along with their 1AM and 1.5AM floor monitors.
“We managed to get so much more than the proposal stated,” explains Robin van Lingen, the chief engineer at Podium Victorie. “We’re so proud of the result after installing Clair Brothers in our new venue. The acoustics are great, and the sound is surprisingly better than expected.
To complete the install, The Audio Specialists selected Lake D Series amplifiers and a Lake LM44 for additional processing and Midas Pro X Series consoles for FOH and monitor positions.
