Justin Bieber’s recent concert at the Sentul International Convention Centre (SICC) saw D.A.S. Audio provide sound reinforcement services.
Jakarta-based DSS (Don Sistem Suara) Rental Company was contracted to provide sound reinforcement services for the show, which was part of Bieber’s My World Tour. They eventually opted for a system taken from D.A.S. Audio’s Aero and Aero Series 2 catalogues.
With a capacity of 11,000 in the venue’s main hall, the acoustic environment of the SICC is certainly a challenging one. However, such an environment is something that DSS has become accustomed to, having provided sound reinforcement services for both Slash and Kylie Minogue – also with a rig from D.A.S. Audio.
Donny Hardono, owner of DSS, explained: “For this concert we deployed 32 D.A.S. Audio Aero-38, 3-way, medium format line array elements. These enclosures were flown in four clusters—each with 8 line array elements. We had the left and right FOH (front of house) mains, which were augmented by two additional clusters, one cluster each on the extreme sides, or outfills. Due to the specific characteristics of this venue, we used outfield speakers to provide greater horizontal coverage to the width of the venue. This arrangement enabled us to accommodate the right/ left outer wings of the audience.”
