The larger concert hall of the multipurpose Spectrum Centre in Belfast, Northern Ireland, offering a capacity of up to 850, has been equipped with QSC ILA line arrays to meet the venue’s need for sound reinforcement flexibility while maintaining exceptional quality.
The ILA line arrays are the lead components in a new AV package supplied by local dealer DJ Kilpatrick and installed by Darren Gardiner of Light & Sound FX (LSFX).
Audio power is supplied by three QSC RMX-5050 amplifiers and an RMX-2450 amplifier driving the subwoofers. All system presets are stored in a dedicated QSC SC28 system controller.
For the line array hangs, LSFX fabricated special steelwork with mounting poles, custom built to take the array frame, and welded to the cast steel ceiling plate. The poles are covered with box trunking to conceal the cabling.
“It was really easy to rig – once the frame was in, it was fitted and tuned within two hours, which was remarkable,” adds Gardiner.
