Russian academy fits Renkus-Heinz arrays to new performance space13 July 2015
Russia’s Gnessen Academy of Music has recently completed a new performance venue with audio and video systems designed and installed by integrators Avallon.
The systems include state-of-the-art recording facilities and a sound system featuring left and right Renkus-Heinz IC2 digitally steerable line arrays, paired with IC212S-FR subwoofers.
“The Renkus-Heinz IC2 system was the ideal choice for this venue,” explained Avallon’s Sergey Vashchenko. “Because of the hall’s low ceiling, hanging a line array would have been impractical. With the ICONYX steered beam technology, we were able to ground stack the system at the sides of the stage and still aim and focus the sound precisely on the audience, minimising reflections from the walls and other surfaces.”
Avallon reports that the school’s faculty and students have been very pleased with the new system. “The IC2 system delivers excellent, full-range performance with more than enough power,” added Vashchenko.
