Adamson Systems Engineering has announced that Stagelight, based in The Netherlands, has joined the Energia Partner program.
Stagelight’s Audio Manager Robert de Lorijn first used Adamson’s Y-Axis line arrays in 2005 while a FOH-tech for Eagles of Death Metal at Pukkelpop & Rock Werchter.
Stagelight-owner Jacco van der Heijden was introduced to the brand when Stagelight provided European support for the 2006 Simple Minds tour.
The sound production company purchased their first Y10-system in 2008 and added Spektrix line source arrays in 2010 and 2012. They recently added Energia E15 line arrays to their Adamson arsenal.
“The Energia E15s are incredible,” explains Stagelight owner Jacco van der Heijden. “The sound quality is very clear and direct with many musical characteristics.”
“We are delighted that Stagelight has added the Energia line array to their inventory,” adds James Oliver, Adamson Systems. “It is terrific to have another strong production company become an Energia Partner.”
Stagelight used 24 E15-cabinets – 12 per hang – along with T21-subs and Spektrix fills at the recent ANWB Open Air Festival in Malieveld in The Hague. 20,000 people were in attendance to hear headliners Kane and Direct, and everyone left raving about the sound quality.
“From that point forward we knew that this was the perfect system for us to use for mid- to big-sized venues,” adds van der Heijden. “It covers large areas easily, has tremendous headroom and sounds great even in the last seat in the house. It’s terrific.”
Recently Stagelight deployed more than 150 Adamson line array cabinets – including the E15 boxes – for a multi-stage event honoring royal couple King Willem Alexander and Queen Maxima in the historic city center of ‘s-Hertogenbosch.
Six separate stages utilized multiple line arrays in order to cover the entire square from any stage. The Adamson E15s were flown for the main PA for the closing act, famous Dutch singer Guus Meeuwis.
Stagelight powers the Energia system with Lab.gruppen PLM20000 amplifiers along with Lake LM44 processing. The Spektrix- and Y10-systems are powered by Lab.gruppen FP10000- and FP7000-amplifiers.
