Amadeus speakers & SSL Live consoles support ‘Jarasum Jazz Festival’
The Jarasum Festival is the largest jazz festival in East Asia and it has selected Amadeus’ newest speaker series including DIVA M², MAESTRO II, as well as bespoke stage monitors. Elan Tech is the South Korea -based production company in charge of both sound equipment and technical production for the festival. Yongwoon Jeong, CEO and Technical Director at Elan Tech describes the FOH speaker system, “The main speakers and subwoofers used for the Jarasum Jazz Festival were all made by Amadeus, for a total of 30 units of DIVA M², 12 units of DIVA M² SUB, and 12 units of MAESTRO II.”
“We have also worked with Amadeus to develop new speakers – stage monitors – which will be officially released in 2020. A total of 50 of these new speakers have been used for the first time at the Jarasum Jazz Festival,” added Yongwoon Jeong. The overall audio setup also featured 11-units of X8 DSP+DANTE amplifiers designed by Powersoft, as well as SSL L500 Live consoles. The new Amadeus speakers, called C12R and C15R, will be a range expansion of the C Series, initially designed for the world-renowned Paris-based Théâtre National de Chaillot, in France. At the Jarasum venue, a few Amadeus C15R units were also set up for front fills, while others were used for wedge monitors. “The new C15R – as well as the original C15 – use the same MHF compression driver unit as the main DIVA M² line array speakers. So it has the same impulse characteristics and was much easier to match the sound for the different uses,” explained Yongwoon Jeong.
