ProAudio Technology convinces technicians and visitors for the third time already

On 9 March 2019, the Maimarkthalle in Mannheim once again became the temple of the hardstyle fans. At Germany’s biggest indoor hardstyle event, everything that has rank and name was there again. The highlight was undoubtedly Brennan Heart, who has been shaping the event for years with his unique sound.

After the festival had already been equipped with ProAudio Technology systems in 2017 and 2018, the entire team – under the leadership of the technical service provider DWS – has once again added to this year’s event: A total of 244 loudspeakers on 23 DSP system amplifiers made the event an incomparable experience.

The powerful main PA consisting of 64 VT20 line arrays in combination with nearfill and delay made of VT16 provided an acoustic firework. A sub-array with 120 SW18 subwoofers guaranteed the necessary pressure and body-control. Beside the perfect result it is worth mentioning that there were no material failures. Once again it underlines the consistent quality of ProAudio Technology.

Statement

„Due to the steadily increasing number of visitors at the I Am Hardstyle in Mannheim, we decided to scale the ProAudio Technology sound reinforcement system slightly larger than last year. This allowed us to achieve even more homogeneous and targeted sound – exactly where we needed it. And that without causing us any problems with the immission levels in outdoor areas.“
