RCF TT on the right Wavelength
24 June 2011
UK - Wavelength Entertainments has invested in four TT08-A, four TT25-A and four TTS28-A subs from RCF's Touring and Theatre range.
Based in the village of Eversley near Reading, Wavelength service productions throughout the UK (and into Europe) - and thus transportation becomes a major factor. The weight and economy advantages of an active, matched system, with all the processing onboard, was too good to resist, according to Tom Chennells.
The Wavelength MD has been an RCF customer for nearly two years, having been introduced to the brand through the retail shop in which he has an interest, RSD Music. The company already runs RCF 905ASs and ART 722As - and on smaller corporate jobs know they can use their 905 active 15" bass bins with TT08 tops.
The decision to back the brand followed the recent merger of Wavelength Entertainments with Yes Events Ltd. "This produced a massive inventory of sound and light, which will enable us to reduce outsourcing," he said. "However, we wanted a single audio brand - so we did a like-for-like sound off against our other brand and we unanimously preferred RCF." The company will be moving forward under the name Yes Events, exclusively using RCF solutions.
Presently, Yes Events sub in outdoor roofs for mobile staging and have an eye on RCF's compact line arrays for the future. But for now they are delighted with the flexibility offered by the combination of the tiny TT08-A powerful lightweight active monitor, and high-performance TT25-A and double 18in bass reflex TT25S-A.
"I did my research and set up a system demo, which surpassed our expectations on performance to weight and cost ratio. To put this into context, the TT08, outputting 750W at 11.4kg weighs less than half of one of our old amps," he says.
"We knew the system was deployable, modular and lightweight - but at the same time, from a client perspective we looked at the quality of sound. Since it is active we can cover a lot of student parties or fresher balls with just four bins and four tops. Not having to carry amp rack and outboard processing is a huge boost . . . we just provide a flat EQ and it sounds great every time."
The new TT system made its unlikely debut in a 14m inflatable dome - the Evolution Trident Dome - at a private 18th party in Englefield Green. "The system really sounded great - which was just as well, as our customer was also Italian," Tom Chennells declared.
