Void Acoustics Air Vantage

Void Acoustics Air Vantage Rental

The dual role Air Vantage midtop is equally at home when used with the Sub Vantage for monitoring duties or as a stand alone mid top with LF enclosures in a main club system. The same attributes that make it eminently suitable as a DJ monitor, such as true point source transmission and a smooth frequency response, also shines through when it comes to filling a dance floor with high SPL and accurate sound.

Particular attention was paid when designing its internal crossover to achieve the best possible phase response, which has allowed for prolonged listening periods at very high SPLs with the minimum of fatigue. Venues with low ceilings are also a prime candidate for the Air Vantage midtop, as its diminutive vertical dimensions and tight pattern control allow for close mounting to a ceiling.

Designed for the larger club environment and arena type EDM events, the Air Vantage has been created to deliver wide and very even coverage throughout its stated dispersion. This allows DJs the freedom to move anywhere around the booth whilst continuing to experience even and balanced sound reproduction. The system also provides very high levels of efficiency with the added benefit of point source accuracy, both essential for precision mixing at the highest levels.

The systems vertical dimensions have also been kept low to allow good sight lines between the audience and DJ and any rear LED screens. A matching complimentary subwoofer comprising of four 15″ drivers deliver accurate low frequencies with very quick dynamics and provides adjustable vertical positioning of a mounted Air Vantage midtop.

Void Acoustics Arcline range is one of the industry leading large scale sound reinforcement systems.

The two-way passive full range Arcline 6 is a versatile, portable and easy to use all round box.  Fantastic wide 120 degree horizontal dispersion that dramatically improves the perceived sound quality and definition as well as reducing setup time, and removing the need to deploy multiple enclosures.

Placing the four 6.5″ neodymium low frequency drivers and three 1″ neodymium high frequency drivers on a virtual arc. This enables to give a true 120 degree dispersion results in a highly uniform polar pattern. Allowing all of the audience members to experience a similar sound quality. Traditional high frequency driver spacing and path length compensation among line source enclosures has almost always meant a compromise in high frequency performance; and therefore a new design of waveguide was employed for the Arcline 6, with the common virtual feed point generating flat response up to 21kHz, even when multiple enclosures are coupled. The ability of multiple Arcline 6 enclosures to form a true cylindrical wavefront is key to their exceptionally smooth transition from near-field to far-field coverage.

The new Arcline 8 is a versatile, portable and intuitive to use. This is made possible by a host of new technologies that dramatically improve the perceived sound quality and definition. An all new advanced rigging system also reduces setup time and obviates the need for more than one person to rig multiple enclosures.

The Arcline 8 delivers a true 110 degree dispersion and results in a highly uniform polar pattern that allows all of the audience members to experience uniform sound quality across the entire sound field. Traditional high frequency driver spacing and path length compensation among line source enclosures has almost always meant a compromise in high frequency performance, so a new design of high frequency horn was developed

The Arcline 8. Extensive FEA modelling was used both to evaluate and optimise the waveguide. A new phase shading device has also been implemented to allow multiple Arcline 8 enclosures to form a true cylindrical wavefront by splitting two acoustic sources into four, with the acoustic centre positioned optimally for coupling in both the horizontal and vertical planes.

The Grand Hall

We were approached to provide the sound, lighting and entertainment for an exclusive wedding at The Grand Hall Bedford late 2017. The client had exacting requirements on the lighting and visual impact of the venue. The majority of the event would be taking place in the dull mid winter light and early sunset. We opted for static deep blues on our pixel battens to light the Victorian ceiling with areas highlighted with our HEX LED fixtures to add detail. Tables where spotted with a selection of white and filtered blue Par36. We were then able to keep overall light levels in the room down, whilst still providing adequate levels for the wedding breakfast. JHA Sharpie beams where used to bolster light levels as the evening went on and provided a dynamic light show for the evening entertainment.

Audio for the entire day was taken care of by a full Void Acoustics Air Motion system. Guests commented on the exceptional sound quality in the vast open space. All this whilst fitting in the décor of the venue. Microphones for speeches and announcements were provided as well as background music through the day.

Finally a starlit LED dancefloor was added behind the top table with the wedding cake centre stage as a focal point before the dancing.

Evening DJ duties were provided by the superb VJ Gary Bamford (Facebook VJ Gary)
