Scene Change ushers in Adamson

Published: ASIA

AUSTRALIA: Scene Change has become the latest company in Australia to purchase an Adamson S10 rig as it required a system to cover larger shows. The A/V hire and production company bought 16 of the line array elements and eight S119 subwoofers from distributor CMI following a shootout between the Adamson solutions and systems from three rival brands.

‘Our point source inventory is no longer the right tool for the job,’ said Scene Change director John Dinh. ‘The scope of shows that are coming through our regular venues now require a larger PA in the form of a line array. Our senior audio technician, Nathan Salt, spent a lot of time researching our options. We went through, grading systems on price, rigging, weight and usability. The shootout process was a critical component of our purchasing decision.’

The shootout was staged at one of Scene Change’s regular venues: a function space at Bay 17. CMI was invited to rig and tune the Adamson systems, as were the distributors of the other three manufacturers put to the test. The representatives from each distributor provided hands-on tutelage of how to prep, configure, rig and tune their respective systems.

‘Rigging Adamson systems is a huge part of my job,’ said Eighth Day Sound’s Simon Farrell, who assisted the manufacturer’s APAC sales manager James Ritter and CMI’s pro audio sales manager Garry Farmer at the shootout. ‘One experienced tech can fly a large array of S Series by themselves.’

Mr Dinh described how having all four PA options perform in the same acoustic environment helped Scene Change to make its purchasing decision. ‘I wanted my staff to set up each of the PAs with their representatives so that they could experience the rigging, cabling, tuning and tweaking of each of the systems,’ he added. ‘The Adamson system is simple, clear and easy; plot the system in Adamson’s Blueprint software, take your angles, preset pins on the boxes and then fly the thing out. Dante connectivity straight in to Lake processing on the Lab.gruppen amps is another great thing for us, as we can mount the amps in our Yamaha CL mixing consoles and patch straight from there.’
