Concert Sound in Warsaw’s old town
In 1918, after a century of foreign rule, Poland became independent. Many Polish people had fought for that for a long time. Ever since, the 18th of November has been marked as the National Day of Independence. And because it was the centenary in 2018, the festivities were celebrated with a big open air concert in Warsaw. The event attracted more than 20,000 people to the market square in the historic old town. The concert was also broadcast on TV.
In order to convey emotion from the stage to the audience in the best possible way, the Focus Venue Concert Sound System by Fohhn was used. It won over the hearts of the artists and the audience. Arrays consisting of 20 modules of the scalable high-performance system were used. Not only did this ensure the best sound but also consistently high sound pressure levels at a great distance. Thanks to Fohhn Beam Steering Technology, the sound dispersion was perfectly aimed towards the audience, using Fohhn Audio Soft, and reflections from surrounding buildings were minimised. The arrays that could consequently be flown straight, perfectly matched the stage design.
In the low end, 18 PS-850 subwoofers complemented the system that, in a cardioid arrangement, ensured a powerful bass experience for the audience and quiet on the stage. Four PT-70 fullrange speakers and six XT-10s were used as nearfill. Fohhn DI system amplifiers powered all passive systems.
We would like to congratulate Dystem and all others involved in this successful project!
