The installation of an Aspect Wide system continues the site’s long association with the Turbosound brand – the venue’s previous incarnation, the Beach Club, featured a Turbosound Floodlight system. For the Brighton Coalition, Brighton-based freelance engineer Alastair Dixon (aka Big Al) devised a main room system comprising four Aspect Wide TA-500 three-way hi-mid enclosures with six TSW-218 subs, plus two TA-500HM high-mids and two TA-500Hs forming the first delay. The system is completed by four NuQ-12 full-range boxes for second delay and side fill. The second room system, meanwhile, consists of four Nu-Qs and two B15 compact subs.
Providing power for the complete system are T-45 and T-25 power amplifiers, with processing from three LMS-D24 digital system controllers. Onstage sound is provided by four TFM-212 floor monitors and a TXD-252 drumfill. All equipment was supplied by locally-based company MBI.
Explaining the selection of Turbosound, Big Al commented that “it’s very transparent. All Turbosound active systems sound good straight out of the box. They don’t require much setting up.”
