Good vibes in Bad Kissingen23 September 2011
L-Acoustics-certified provider Soundhouse has installed a KIVA WST modular line source system at the Max Littmann Saal concert hall in Bad Kissingen, Germany.
Low weight, wide/controlled coverage and low visual impact were chief priorities when Soundhouse came to devise an upgrade of the vintage concert hall’s sound spec. Ultimately, the company opted to install a left/right system of eight L-Acoustics KIVAs and two KILO low-frequency extension units per side, driven by LA8 amplified controllers.
Christoph zur Loye from Soundhouse commented: “This system provides an appropriate sound coverage while remaining almost invisible in this historic environment. It can be configured for floor and/or balcony coverage depending on the seating situation and number of visitors.”
Providing a venue perspective, Ulf Seyring (pictured here, second from right, with (L to R) Max Littmann Saal staff Fabian Hein, Katrin Glaser and Soundhouse’s Johannes Matatko)) added: “The system is just right in size, appearance and its excellent scalability for the sophisticated ambience of the Max Littmann hall. The rigging is very well thought out, user-friendly and visually unobtrusive, while the high sound quality and coverage of the audience area is impressive. This demonstrates the acoustic design of the arrays, the accurate simulation in SOUNDVISION and the great support we received from Soundhouse. The overall package, in conjunction with its competitive price, has totally convinced us as users of the system, while confirming the reputation of L-Acoustics.”
