The Kulturhaus Dornbirn offers a wide range of cultural events
Austria - Since 1982, the Kulturhaus (culture house) Dornbirn, Austria is a popular event centre for the entire Vorarlberg region. After an extensive planning and implementation phase, which was administered already in 2013 by the company Tonplan from Dornbirn, the final step of the installation of an Alcons sound system in the main hall of the cultural centre took place in 2015.

The sound department of the Kulturhaus Dornbirn, under the direction of Thomas Bischofberger, installed a sound system for the main stalls area consisting of four Alcons QR24 line-source columns (2x 12" pro-ribbon tweeter, 4x 6.5" woofer), which is particularly suitable for installations in difficult acoustic environments.

As centrefill four pieces Alcons LR7 micro line-array (4" pro-ribbon tweeter, 1x 6.5" woofer) and an Alcons VR12 (6" pro-ribbon tweeter, 1x 12" woofer) have been installed. Four Alcons VR8 (4" pro-ribbon tweeter, 1x 8" woofer) act as side-fills, two of which are specifically for the gallery. For stage-lip near-fill four Alcons SR9 (1x 4" pro-ribbon tweeter, 2x 5" woofer) are used.

The systems are driven by one Sentinel S10 and two Sentinel S3 amplified loudspeaker controllers. The signal is distributed via a Xilica Neutrino A1616ND and Xilica Rio R1616N Audio Matrix with Dante connection to the Yamaha CL5 / CL3 consoles.

The Sentinel amplifiers are used with the factory presets for the various speakers. The Alcons Sentinels feature a remote IP connection, which also makes it possible to view and edit the current status of each individual output stage via ALControl.

Thomas Jochum, sound engineer of the cultural centre, explains the decision for Alcons: "Decisive for our choice were the pro-ribbon transducers of the Alcons systems. These have a superior sound characteristic in the high frequencies, which is very beneficial for our house, as many events are very speech-emphasized. "

The installation and calibration was carried out together with Pro Performance Wolfgang Sauter, which is an established distribution partner for Alcons products in Austria.
