Russia - The Palace of Culture “October” is an 850-seat theatre with two levels. Opened in 1966 in Podolsk, Moscow, the venue hosts many types of events from dance to concerts and local shows.
RCF Russian distributor ARIS provided a new HDL 28-A line array with SUB 9004-AS for a new and improved sound. The upgrade has allowed the 240- seat balcony to be opened to the public; it previously remained closed due to acoustical issues.
Installed more than 10 years ago, the previous sound system was unable to cover the rather spacious balcony properly. This meant that tickets to the balcony during box office concerts were not sold, to avoid complaints from disappointed patrons.
When the budget was approved for a new sound reinforcement system, a mandatory requirement from management of the House of Culture was to provide a high-quality sound experience to all sections of the venue including the balcony. ARIS suggested hanging two RCF active line array clusters of six elements each. The two upper elements in the cluster exclusively target the balcony, and the four lower elements cover the remainder of the theatre. Three SUB 9004-A active 18-inch subwoofers were configured in L-R stacks providing sound at lower frequencies. All control and monitoring of the system is carried out from the sound engineer's booth using RDNet protocol.
The new HDL 28-A provided a higher sound pressure level, higher index of intelligibility, perfect coverage, and ease of remote control in realtime through RDNet software.
