The stars of the Reggaeton scene performing at the Los Favoritos Festival in Mannheim’s (Germany) SAP Arena included headliners Bad Bunny, Arcangel and Lucenzo, with sound reinforcement provided by loudspeakers from RCF.

At the event, technical service provider Colito was responsible for the complete audio, lighting and video equipment. For the concert in the SAP Arena, filled with over 5,000 visitors, Colito fully relied on active systems from RCF. Several components of the active 3-way line array HDL 50-A and 2-way line array HDL 30-A, as well as active subs from RCF, were used.

As is so often the case, the schedule was extremely tight. We had only eight hours for rigging, installing, calibrating and tuning the PA system,” says Colito managing director Michael Meister. Once again, the simple handling and control of the RCF systems with the RDNet software have proven their value. All components are really from the same mold and work together perfectly.”

To provide the SAP Arena with sufficient sound, 2x 16 HDL 50-A modules were installed hanging as main PA during the event. In addition, there were 2x 12 HDL 30-A as outfill (hanging) and 2x 6 HDL 30-A as stage sidefill (hanging, for monitoring). The low frequencies were provided by a series of 24x RCF Sub 9007-AS, which were placed in two stacks (cardioid) in front of the stage. The nearfill comprised of 4x RCF TT 22-A modules put on the stage.
