The second
installment of the Electric Sea Festival took place at Rostock on Saturday,
Dec. 10, 2016, with the likes of legendary Hamburg house DJ Boris Dlugosch and
Erfurt-based, chart-storming DJ collective Gestört aber Geil topping the bill. Crowd
favorites such as Mike Perry, Danny Avila and many others also featured
prominently, much to the delight of the hopping 4,000+ audience.



Sebastian &
Rolf Eggert's Lübtheen-based company Music Eggert Veranstaltungstechnik staged
the Electric Sea Festivals. The PA hire companies Resonanz
Veranstaltungstechnik and Weiss Veranstaltungstechnik delivered the sound
system to Rostock.



This time out
the biggest challenge was staying power. The audience of electronic dance music
aficionados expected an excellent audio experience with slamming beats pumped
out at a consistently high level of volume from the first strains at 8 p.m. to
the final flourish at 6 a.m. the next morning. This is no mean feat, given this
genre's preponderance of percussion and sounds ranging across the frequency spectrum
and all the way down to 30 Hz.
 



The promoters
rose to the occasion by rolling out thirty dB Technologies VIO L210 active line
array units and twelve VIO S318 active subwoofers driven and controlled by dB
Technologies Network software.



Exceeding truss
towers' load handling capacity is a no-no, so the crew kept well within each of
the twin towers' 450 kg rating by flying twelve VIO L210 enclosures. Four more
VIO L210s were deployed to serve as fills, one pair as the left and right
out-fills, and another as the in-fills. Twelve dB Technologies VIO S318
subwoofers were paired up in an end-fire array to deliver a mule-kick of a low-end
punch.



The outcome was
a powerful, high-definition audio image with a sweet spot encompassing the
entire frequency range. Although the rig ran continuously, its performance
never suffered from the heavy workload. Crisp, shimmering top end. Punchy
midrange. Tight, snappy bass with hair-trigger response ranging down to the
sub-low frequency of 30 Hz—it was all there, all night long.


Promoter Rolf Eggert put it best: "The new dBTechnologies VIO system
delivered impressive performance. Its professional appointments and powerful,
clear sound even at very high volumes are big pluses. I was surprised at how
quickly the whole rig can be set up and torn down. Thanks to the smart rigging
hardware, the entire system was ready to go in a very short time with just two
people on hand. That alone could be reason enough to opt for this system, for
example, when you're out on the road touring. All components are self-powered,
so the two rental companies (Resonanz Veranstaltungstechnik & Weiss
Veranstaltungstechnik) that teamed up to furnish the PA were able to deliver
the entire rig to the venue in a single Sprinter van. That cuts costs and saves
time! What's more, the system's price-performance ratio is extremely good. It
was a successful event in every respect."
