On Event Production Co. has become SSE Audio Group's first sales customer for the L-Acoustics ARCS WIFO constant curvature array system.

Having enjoyed a close relationship with the firm since the late 1970s, SSE Audio Group was On Event Production Co's natural choice of supplier when the time came to invest in an L-Acoustics system. On Event Production Co. offers full production services for both corporate and live events.

"This investment in the L-Acoustics XT and new ARCS WIDE ranges keeps our stock at the leading edge of audio technology and will enable us to create versatile and scalable high quality audio systems for our clients in both the corporate and live music sectors," said Paul White, On's operations director.

SSE's new sales director, Alex Penn, described the sale: "Paul, along with On's production and hire manager Pete Copeland visited our Redditch HQ and we were able to call on our hire inventory to set up a demo of the systems. On hearing the boxes, Paul and Pete were most impressed, concluding they were more than capable of meeting On Event Production Co's needs. All that remained then was to specify the required packaging from Sigma Fabrications to make the system road ready."

Copeland, along with On's production engineer, Jethro Sigley, were key players in the decision making process and described the reasons behind their choice: "They offer us a range of products all with similar voicing allowing us to tailor system design to each event, yet all running from the same amplifiers," Copeland commented. "The 12XT is a great multifunctional cabinet delivering high quality audio in a compact enclosure, ideal for corporate events, flown or pole mounted, whilst also suitable as a stage monitor on live events."

Sigley added: "ARCS WIFO can be used in so many situations, from FOH to fills to delays, whilst the versatile rigging allows us to fly or ground stack dependant on venue."

The full package supplied was as follows:

  • 8 x L-Acoustics ARCS WIDE
  • 8 x SB18M Subs
  • 8 x L-Acoustics LA8 amplified controllers
  • 8 x L-Acoustics 8XT
  • 12 x L-Acoustics 12XT
  • 8 x Yamaha DXR12 powered speakers
  • WIFOLIFT, WIFOBUMP and WIFOSOCK rigging for vertical, horizontal and pole mounting ARCS WIDE
  • K&M stands
  • Sennheiser wireless accessories to compliment existing stock
  • All equipment packaged in Sigma Fabrications custom flightcases
