Flipside Soundsystem recently supplied a FaitalPRO loudspeaker system to the Houses of Parliament’s Thames Pavilion when Irish company SAM hired the venue for its 25th anniversary celebration.
James Cooper, owner of the London-based loudspeaker designers, installers, sound consultants and PA hirers, said: "The London Houses of Parliament pavilion event was a temporary hire, we supplied engineers and equipment for the pavilion area and a live performance.”
The PA was requested to amplify a group called The Titanic Dancers, an Irish band composed of three musicians, string session, vocalist, and dancers.
The setup included an active system, a Midas desk and basic outboard equipment, some microphones, wedge monitors, and four audio crew members on site including Cooper.
Due to security clearance reasons, Flipside were allowed access just 45 minutes before the start of the event so all equipment used had to be installed very fast.
“We are not a big company, so we really can take care of our customers needs and our main efforts at the moment are concentrated on developing our PA hire business for occasions just like this,” explained Cooper. “Our Hypex amplifier modules and FaitalPRO RS range of bass drivers is particularly appreciated. Among the many FaitalPRO loudspeakers used our cabinets host subwoofers 18FH510, woofers 8PR200, woofers 8RS250, full-ranges 4FE32, and compression drivers HF104.
“We chose FaitalPRO professional loudspeakers because their customer care is fantastic with the power to size ratio we need. We just can’t find another product range out there that can boast the same quality."
