A HARMAN Professional tour system comprising of JBL VTX V25-II arrays and Crown 4x3500 iTech HD amplifiers has supported The Accessible Concert, a charity event by Able2 UK, at Glasgow’s O2 Academy.
The event, which took place on 7th January 2016, was headlined by Hozier, together with Kodaline and Prides.
Able2 UK, a disability charity, transformed the venue with viewing platforms and access ramps to ensure accessibility, with sign language interpreters and subtitles also projected onto the big screen.
The system comprised of 4x JBL VTX- V25 II flown per side to cover the balcony, with 4x VTX- V25 II ground stacked per side to cover the standing area. 6x JBL VTX-S28 subs were ground stacked per side, arranged in a cardioid configuration, whilst 2x VTX-F15 acted as frontfill.
The system was powered by 4 x Crown 4x3500 Vracks and 2 x 12000HD Vracks, and controlled via HARMAN’s Hiqnet Performance Manager software.
In addition a HARMAN Soundcraft Vi1 acted as a FOH matricing console and handled presenter mics, VT feed and the induction loop.
Gavin Muddiman, FOH engineer for headliner Hozier was very happy with the rig, commenting he had used VTX before and liked the system.
