Focus Venue – Perfect for Jazz and Classical

At the open-air concerts in Rottenburg am Neckar, Fohhn’s new active line arrays ensure perfect live sound.

At the end of July, jazz fans and classical music lovers eagerly awaited two open-air concerts held in Rottenburg am Neckar’s mediaeval market place. These events were organised by the Zehntscheuer Cultural Association. On the first evening – Open Air Jazz – American jazz saxophonist Kenny Garret appeared with his quintet. The support act was German jazz formation The Jacob Manz Project. The following day, the 18th Summer Night Classics took place including, among others, a performance by the Württemberg Philharmonic, Reutlingen.

On both evenings, Mixtown Veranstaltungstechnik from Schwäbisch Gmünd was responsible for implementing the sound reinforcement. The company opted for the new Fohhn concert sound system: Focus Venue line arrays with integrated Beam Steering technology were flown left and right of the stage to form the main PA – one FV-100 module above two combined FV-200 modules in each case. Positioned underneath each flown system were three PS-850 subwoofers (arranged as a triple stack in a cardioid setup). The 2 x 18” subwoofers were all driven by Fohhn’s new DI-2.2000, Class D, high performance amplifiers. On top of each subwoofer stack was an XT-22 full range system, used as an outfill loudspeaker. Along the front edge of the stage four XT-10 systems served as nearfills, while on the stage, seven XM-4 wedges were used as monitors. In addition, 35 metres away from the main PA, two PT-70 full range systems on tripod stands were used as delay speakers, in order to compensate for any possible headwind.

We congratulate Mixtown on two successful open-air concerts.
