A TURBOSOUND Flex Array already flying during setup at the Bij St-Jacobs stage at the Gentse Feesten in Belgium.

More than 70 TURBOSOUND loudspeakers recently provided coverage for two stages at the Gentse Feesten, a large cultural festival held annually across the city of Ghent, Belgium.

Splendit, the largest TURBOSOUND rental company in the Benelux, was commissioned to ensure controlled coverage of sound, on and off the site.

Noise control is a critical factor for the 10-day festival, which takes place in and around Ghent’s residential areas. Marijn Broeckaert of Splendit explains: “The TURBOSOUND Flex Array was chosen especially for its 75 degrees dispersion. It is able to deliver such clear, directed sound to festival-goers without impacting areas out with the immediate festival.”

Dirk Brysbaert, sound manager for the Bij St-Jacobs stage, the festival’s largest, adds, “In addition to the controlled dispersion of the flown arrays, both stages employed cardioid bass array set ups. This worked so well that we had nothing but compliments about the sound quality.”

The system serving the Bij St-Jacobs stage incorporated two hangs of nine TFA600H and two TFA600HW cabinets per side, with a dozen TSW218 subwoofers centrally ground-stacked at the front of the stage in a cardioid array. Dual hangs of three TFA600HWs, on delay, furthered main system coverage, and monitors were covered by 16 TMW115s and a TFA600L drum fill sub. A MIDAS XL4 mixing console was the choice at front of house.

For the Baudelopark stage, two hangs of three TFA600H and two TFA600HW were deployed per side, with nine TFA600L subs in a central cardioid array at the front of the stage. Monitors was handled with eight more TMW115s, with two iQ12 for in fill. Here, the FOH console choice was a MIDAS PRO2.
