Adamson’s application engineer, Ewan McDonald, travelled to Audio Systems the week before its first tour with the E15s, for a two-day intensive training course covering all aspects of the new system. Topics included 3D simulation in Adamson’s new Blueprint AV software suite, design principles of the E15, preset management, and alignment. McDonald commented: “All the system engineers had hands-on training rigging the system to ensure the array was flown safely and quickly and needless to say, all were extremely impressed with the new Autolock rigging system.”
The system details varied depending on the event, the largest being the Chihuahua show, which featured additional delay PA made up of Adamson Y10s. The mains during all stops were Adamson E15s flown with SpekTrix as front fills, Y10s as side fills, flown and stacked T21s for sub extension, and M15 monitors on the stage. All venue designs were mapped out using the Bluprint AV suite.
“This is our first time out with the E15, and I know already that the Energia System is pretty much superior, and I’m new to the system," said FOH engineer Juan Gonzales. "Sincerely I’m very happy. It’s a very linear PA system and I like it more than the ageing Y18. The truth is, I like Adamson’s project Energia very much, and it’s in my top choices for a PA.” Gonzales mixed the tour on his favourite console – the Didigdesign D-Show.
