Sub-bass Array

The main sub-bass array consisted of 48 L-Acoustics KS28 stacked in front of the stage in an arrangement of 12 wide by 4 high. Sub-arc processing was used to widen the pattern of the subs to provide even coverage throughout the audience area. This system was augmented with additional cardioid sub arrays at each of the 7 delay towers.

Front Fill

With the main four arrays very wide and very high it was important the front fill provided great sound and impact for the fans down the front in the centre. The front fill consisted of 8 stacks of 3 L-Acoustics K2 with a pair of single K2 sitting on top of the sub-bass array. The front fill arrays were elevated 1.5m on decks and installed in their touring chariots.
