A Wharfedale Pro sound reinforcement solution was deployed for a VIP gathering to mark the opening of TW Steel’s first Hong Kong boutique.
The system consisted of Delta 12 full range loudspeakers, Delta 18B subwoofers, MP-2800 amplifiers, Contact 800 wireless microphones, an SL-824 USB mixer and XO-204X crossover.
Four-time Grammy Award winner Kelly Rowland led the celebrations at the Armani Aqua venue in Central Hong Kong, which played host to a headline performance from Dutch electro DJ Mitchell Niemeyer. Several DJs from the local club circuit were also part of the line-up, including Eve Speciall, who had this to say about Wharfedale Pro’s contribution:
“The sound system rocked, it was really clear and had plenty of bass. Mixing on this system was really good, as I could hear every detail and it really got the crowd going. As a DJ you cant ask for more from a system,” she said.
“The Wharfedale Pro Delta Series has a great sound – really clear and powerful with good coverage,” added sound engineer Jürgen. "I used five Delta 12s and four Delta 18B subs. Five mid/hi enclosures were needed as the venue had quite a tricky shape to cover.
"The system had more than enough headroom. Before his set Mitchell asked if he could have a bit of extra level; the system had a lot left in the tank so I agreed to 20 per cent extra gain and this gave a real good powerful club sound that helped send the crowd wild.”
The Delta 18B subwoofers were set up to provide bass to the capacity crowd on the 8m x 10m dance floor, as well as coverage to the far reaches of the venue.
