Clair Brothers i218 loudspeaker system rocks Jakarta on Guns N’ Roses Tour
Guns N’ Roses continue to entertain 48,000 screaming people at the GBK Stadium show in Jakarta. Not coincidentally, the crowd was also treated to the booming clarity of the Clair Brothers i218 speaker system, which was the first choice for sound reinforcement and also happens to be the largest format system available in Indonesia. Clair Brothers’ expert audio consultant in the region, Wayne Grosser, explained, “The i218 system has been the first choice for touring artists in the GBK Stadium – it’s been a great success for many of the local promoters and production companies.
I would like to thank Indonesian production company and Clair Brothers rental partner, Total Audio, and its sound director, Sadat Effendy, along with his team for supplying all the gear well ahead of this scheduled show.” Several Clair Brothers products were used exclusively for the main FOH system. In tandem with the four main hangs with 16x i218-M in each, there were 36x iS218-M ground subs, 12x i212-M front fills, plus four delay towers with 8x i212-M in each tower. All amplifiers were Clair Brothers CBPLM20K amps. The touring FOH console used was the Yamaha RIVAGE PM10. Continues Grosser, “FOH Engineer, Caram Costanzo, produced an amazing mix that sounded great throughout the whole stadium. The system engineer for the tour, Josh De Long of Clair Global, and I worked together to ensure we had even sound coverage for every audience area. This was a special show in that the Clair Brothers loudspeaker system used was called on to perform in a pinch at this Guns N’ Roses GBK concert. When all was said and done, Caram, Josh and the rest of their team were very impressed with the Clair Brothers i218-M and i212-M system.”
