Thorpe Park theme park in Surrey has upgraded its outdoor sound system with a complete EM Acoustics HALO-Compact line array system, supplied and installed by White Light. The system is supplemented with MSE-218 subwoofers, AD and AQ amplifiers and M-C12 monitor speakers.
The system was purchased primarily for Thorpe Park’s outdoor events season, which includes the monthly Ministry of Sound club nights and the Island Beats concerts over the summer.
White Light’s business development manager, Jonathan Haynes, led the project. “After a number of onsite product demonstrations, it quickly became apparent that the EM Acoustics system was ideally suited to their requirements as it provided the flexibility they required in order to handle the wide variety of events and functions held at Thorpe Park.” White Light supplied a full EM Acoustics system comprising 20 HALO-C line array elements, eight MSE-218 subs, three AQ-10 and four AD-9 amplifiers in addition to eight M-C12 monitor speakers.
EM Acoustics provided onsite training for Thorpe Park’s technical team to familiarise them with the new system and to explain how it can be upscaled for larger, one-off events.
Thorpe Park’s Entertainments technical coordinator, Martin Swain, commented: “We had a great experience working with White Light. They were extremely understanding when it came to our needs and not only worked within our budget but provided the necessary solutions to any issues we faced. We’re delighted with both the equipment and the service provided by all concerned.”
