London’s O2 Kentish Town Forum has chosen VDC products for their new audio system aimed at future-proofing the venue’s technical infrastructure.
The specification put forward for the 2,300-capacity venue included a VDC multicore system, an L-Acoustics K2 loudspeaker system, consoles and MP5 wedges and side fills for the monitor system.
The O2 Forum Kentish Town is a stunning art-deco theatre and a much-loved, major touring venue that attracts high profile, international artists, so they needed to invest in a completely new PA system that really is the best-in-class.
To ensure the new system was fully optimised, it was recommended that the main PA points were upgraded and relocated to a new position. Additional low frequency support was provided by six SB28s per side, ground-stacked in two three-way wheeled dollies. Three L-Acoustics ARCS boxes per side on the inside edges of the sub stacks cover the nearfield and stalls areas immediately in front of the stage.
On the console front, two Digico SD10 consoles have been supplied with D2 stage boxes, deployed at FOH and monitors, while a new VDC multicore system with 48 input lines and 16 stage returns is part of the set-up and AES signal lines to follow.
