Local distributor ACE recently provided a variety of Harman Professional components to deliver sound reinforcement at the welcome banquet of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum in Beijing, including JBL Professional VTX line arrays, Crown Audio I-Tech HD amplifiers, Soundcraft Vi6 mixing consoles, and BSS Audio BLU-800 signal processors.

Ten national music performances were the highlight of the evening at the Beijing National Aquatics Center (Water Cube), where the banquet was held, originally used for the 2008 Summer Olympics swimming competitions.

To support this unique event, ACE supplied eight VTX V20 loudspeakers and four VTX S25 subwoofers for the main PA. In addition, ACE also provided 10 VTX F15 loudspeakers, 12 VTX F12 loudspeakers for stage monitoring and distributed fill, complemented by four VTX F18S subwoofers for out fill.

The system was powered with 16 Crown I-Tech 4x3500HD and six I-Tech 12000HD amplifiers, and processed with eight BSS BLU-800 signal processors. Finally, at the heart of the audio setup were two Soundcraft Vi6 digital mixing consoles to facilitate the live mixing process.

As always, ACE’s outstanding professionalism and seasoned technical team ensured a seamless audio-visual experience throughout the event.
