Nexo keeps the crowd up all night at Sunset Music Festival

Published: ASIA

AUSTRALIA: Showtime Productions has supplied and installed a Nexo STM sound system for the Sunset Music Festival at the Armidale Showground, NSW. Alongside the main PA, the Showtime crew deployed Geo and PS15 cabinets, A-grade trussing and lighting equipment for the 8,000 capacity event.

The audio setup used for the event is affectionately known by the team as the STM ‘6 Banger’, and included three by six combinations of M46, B112 and S118 cabinets. The bass modules were ground stacked and distributed across the front of stage to create an even coverage across the whole field. The entire STM component of the PA was powered by two NUAR racks per side. Front fill was handled by two PS15's with another four PS15's handling fold back. A heavy-duty monitoring setup comprised of two GeoS12s stacked on top of two LS18 subs per side also featured on stage. These were all powered by two Nexo NX4X4 amplifiers.

DiGiCo also made an appearance, with an SD11 and D-Rack taking care of console duties. To protect against unbalanced inputs the DJ mixers were fed through an Apex dBDI-2 dual active DI before reaching the console. The bDBI-2 contains shielded transformers capable of protecting against common DJ equipment faults, such as ground loops.

Outputs from the main PA and DJ booth were fed through an Apex Intelli-X48, which provided parametric EQ and time alignment for the mid and bass modules. An additional pair of stereo feeds were sent out directly to the main subs and PS15 front fill through the SD11's in-built Matrix, which handled multi-zone time alignment.

An Apex Argos limiter was inserted onto the main outputs in order to ensure sound levels were kept within permitted limits. To monitor the system volume, two Apex Hera units were setup. One was positioned in the console rack with a microphone placed in front of the PA for local monitoring, while the second unit was setup remotely at the furthest perimeter of the site in order to ensure that neighbouring residents were not disrupted. The Hera units also kept a running log every 15 minutes of LEQ which provides an accurate gauge of volume across the entire day.
