TW Audio goes big for special VIXXCHOOL fan concert

Published: ASIA

KOREA: A meeting for fans of Korean boy band VIXXCHOOL took on a new meaning recently, with an audience of 9,000 people descending on Seoul’s Olympic Gymnastics Arena. Supported by a large TW Audio Vera speaker system, the concert was arranged to show support for the band’s core fan club, who nickname themselves 'Starlight'. Instead of a typical concert, the show included individual performances from the band members and fewer group presentations than usual. Star Networks Korea was entrusted to supply the audio for the event.

‘A K-Pop concert has to be loud, much louder than a heavy metal concert, simply because one is up against thousands of screaming fans,’ offered Star Networks’ head technician, Seokwoo Choi, on the challenges of catering to such a performance. ‘We increased the number of Vera36 boxes and subwoofers so we had enough headroom to handle this challenge whilst maintaining the clarity and intelligibility.’

The setup saw left-right hangs of 42 Vera36 enclosures, with 16 Vera S33s and eight BSX subwoofers filling in the lower frequencies. They were powered by 20 Lab.gruppen and four Powersoft amplifiers. Framed by an illuminated arch as part of the set design, the wide stage required the Vera36s to be split into main hangs of 21 cabinets, flown either side of the stage.

‘During the show, when the arch was illuminated, the loudspeakers seemed to disappear into oblivion,’ added Mr Choi. ‘This was important for the director of the show. He needed to have a big system, but also one that wasn’t too obvious or massive in size. But most of all he was impressed with the sound of the system and its power. The show went down really well.’
