The concert hall at the Inderøy Kulturhus complex in Trøndelag county, Norway recently implemented new sound reinforcement system that utilizes a variety of Alcons Audio loudspeakers and subwoofers.
Opened in 1990, Inderøy Kulturhus was the first major cultural center in the historic Innherred region of Norway. As part of a project to add physical education facilities for the primary school and premises for Inderøy Upper Secondary School, a sports hall and service areas were added, along with a 360-capacity concert hall that stages a wide range of events.
By the mid-2010s, the previous audio system needed to be replaced, so General Manager Arnstein Langåssve and Sound & Light technician Lars Erik Fisknes approached Arnstein Fossvik of production technology company Trondheim Lyd. He introduced them to the Alcons Audio LR7 pro-ribbon line array system at the Prolight + Sound trade show in 2015.
While fundraising for a new system, the Inderøy Kulturhus AS team investigated a range of other options, but every time the Alcons LR7 system remained their preferred choice. “We were convinced that the LR7 was the best system for Inderøy Kulturhus and finally, in early 2021, the dream came true!, says Fisknes.
Trondheim Lyd deployed a system comprising 12 LR7/90 micro line array modules, six LR7/120 wide-dispersion micro line array modules, four single 12-inch LR7B bass modules, four VR8 compact monitors (two placed horizontally) and two floor-mounted double 18-inch BF362mkII subwoofers. A pair of Sentinel10 amplified controllers drive the loudspeakers.
“In addition to delivering superior sound quality, the system had to be visually discreet,” concludes Fisknes. “The hall has very good acoustics and the Alcons system precisely covers the audience, from the first to the last row, with extraordinary sound definition, linearity, clarity and intelligibility, combined with huge headroom and power.”
