L-Acoustics K Series Wows EDM Music Fans in Bangkok L-Acoustics K Series Wows EDM Music Fans in Bangkok...
One Systems Global Production designed and deployed a powerful L-Acoustics K Series system for 10,000 in massive exhibition hall
Bangkok, Thailand – February 2023 – Last September, ten thousand of Thailand’s electronic dance music fans got reacquainted with the boundless energy of a live show as Bangkok’s Together Festival returned after a two-edition hiatus to deliver a program filled with the genre’s A-listers. Headliners like Blasterjaxx, W&W, Will Sparks, and AXMO were featured alongside local talents Roxy June, Riviere, and Ayrton. Staged over two days in a massive 3,267-square-metre exhibition hall at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC), the festival showcased various EDM styles. With a dynamic range of sub-genres from house and hardstyle to euphoric, vocal-led tracks, an equally dynamic PA was needed to support the various musical content.
Festival organizers looked to Bangkok-based L-Acoustics Rental Partner One Systems Global Production to supply a full-range, powerful PA that would fit the musical styles and fill the exhibition hall with powerful, clear sound. A production partner since the first-ever edition of Together Festival in 2016, the technical and system engineering team at One System had a good grasp of the festival’s program and they specified a system based on L-Acoustics K Series to achieve the festival’s goals.
Mr. Anusorn Peetiwattanaphan, Systems and Front-of-House Engineer for the event, has worked on renowned EDM festivals such as the S20 Songkran Music Festival, Waterzonic, and 808 Festival over the past decade. Knowing that an L-Acoustics system is always a first choice for world-class EDM artists, Mr. Anusorn set to work designing his K Series-based system using Soundvision 3D modeling software.
“Soundvision improves my efficiency as it allows me to plot all elements according to the space, no matter the shape and size,” explains Mr. Anusorn. “On the hardware side of things, installation and cabling are accomplished swiftly with detailed reports for my deployment team,” says Mr. Anusorn.
Mr. Anusorn also needed to manage a vast exhibition hall made of concrete. “My team and I minimized reflections using K Series’ Panflex variable directivity,” he reveals. “With careful planning in Soundvision, I was able to focus sound to the audience, avoiding the reflective walls.”
The main system included 10 L-Acoustics K1 with six K2 down per side. Front-fill consisted of six stacks of two Kara II boxes each, while out-fill was accomplished using 10 K2 per side. Thirty-six SB28 subwoofers produced low-end rumble. DJs were served with six L-Acoustics Kara II for monitoring and the entire system was driven by 48 LA8 amplified controllers running through an L-Acoustics P1 processor.
One Systems Global Production and Mr. Anusorn were thrilled with the sound quality. “The system I designed yielded the results I was expecting. The L-Acoustics range of premium hardware allowed for smooth operation with minimal fuss, despite the acoustic challenges,” concludes Mr. Anusorn. “It was wonderful to be back to creating exciting sound for festival-goers in Thailand.”
