German rental company satis&fy Werne has rolled out its L-ACOUSTICS K1/KUDO WST® line source system for several open-air festivals this summer. According to the company, this flagship rig has again demonstrated its festival-approved capabilities.
In early June, satis&fy rocked not only the Ring, but also the Park during the simultaneous German festivals. The company provided 24 K1s, eight K1-SB subs, 12 KUDOs, 16 KIVAs, and 40 SB28 subs for Rock am Ring, with a delay system of 64 V-DOSC cabs serving up a sweet sonic experience for the audience at the back of the festival grounds. At the Rock im Park festival, satis&fy deployed 24 K1s and eight K1-SB subs, as well as 24 KUDOs in side-hang clusters and 12 KIVAs for near-fill, with 40 SB28 subs enhancing the main PA’s low-end performance. Here, the delay towers were equipped with V-DOSC, dV-DOSC and KUDO enclosures.
satis&fy Werne also provided the sound reinforcement system in the Hessentagsarena for the Hessian state fair held at Oberursel. Again featuring K1/ KUDO rig, this system comprised 24 K1s, eight K1-SB subs, 18 KUDOs as side-hang clusters, eight ARCS for near-fill, 32 SB28 and subs, with 24 V-DOSC cabinets for the delay line. The company was also on hand at the Meyer shipyard for the Papenburger Festival hosted by radio broadcaster NDR 2, again providing a K1/KUDO rig to deliver an impressive audio experience.
“The L'ACOUSTICS K1 system makes it so easy to deal with the acoustic challenges of festivals and open-air events such as the sheer size of most festival grounds, the great distance between PA towers and the musical diversity of acts,” says Arnd Wagner, satis&fy Werne’s audio support engineer. “We can cover even very long throw distances and deliver excellent quality with no signal degradation. What’s more, the K1/KUDO system is a real plug and play application that handles so conveniently and fits in with every set. The high-end sound at the festivals was unsurpassed, and audiences were elated."
