Mexico-based L-Acoustics Certified Provider Distributor VARI Internacional has supplied the Pepsi Centre, a new multipurpose arts venue owned by WTC Mexico City and operated by PRG Mexico and OCESA, with a new KUDO system.
PRG and VARI Internacional collaborated as technical advisors to the Pepsi Center, which is set to host national and international productions, including concerts with Mexican singer Alejandro Fernandez, Bob Dylan, Megadeth, Yes, Meat Loaf and others. The 14,000-square metre, 7,500-capacity venue was built with flexibility in mind, with the option of functioning as both an auditorium and arena. In addition to hosting musical concerts and performing arts, the venue is also suitable for conventions and sporting events.
This flexible approach was also adopted with regards to the venue’s sound system, which comprises two KUDOs and six SB28 subwoofers per side, with three ARCS II cabinets and two SB28s per side as side fill; four ARCS IIs as front fill and a delay system of three KARAs per side. 14 115 XT HiQ coaxials are being used as stage monitors with two SB18 subwoofers for drum fill, while the system is controlled by 26 LA8 amplified controllers.
“We welcome the presence of L-ACOUSTICS KUDO in this new venue,’ said Juan Francisco Alvarez Martinez from VARI Internacional. “As the audio design needed to be reconfigurable, it required a high performance system with the possibility to change the horizontal coverage, and KUDO was definitely the best solution. This also reaffirms the close business relationship that OCESA, PRG Mexico and VARI Internacional have shared over the past six years.”
Paul Freudenberg, Business Development manager, Americas, commented: “We are very proud of the recent accomplishments of VARI, and the significance of the OCESA collaboration in this important new venue.”
