Diary 08/05/07

We set up 2 serious PA rigs, one in the bar area and a larger system for the music room.

In the bar area we provided a 2.7 K rig complete with 2 Technics decks, 2 Pioneer CDJ decks and a 4 way DJ Mixer. We used our brand new “blue” full range cabs with Eminence Magum Pro. 12″ 600 Watt RMS !!! drivers and Fane CD140’s. These were sat on top of two new 18 ” subs fitted with our usual Fane colossus drivers. We were very happy with the performance of this rig it vibrated all the bottles behind the bar!

We also provided 4 par cans with blue & green gels to light the arches in the bar under which podiums were erected for dancers.

In the main “music” room we completly went over the top. We set up a 5.4 k continuos rig with a disco lighting truss hung with scanners, strobes, moonflowers & haze. The DJ was a little overwhelmed and phoned me just before he went on questioning the sheer scale of the sound system – I assured him it was better to have more than you need – I don’t think he turned his mixer main volume up more than a quarter all night.

When we arrived at the end to break down it seemed like a wicked night had been had by all – drunk students do and say the strangest things!!

Bring on more work at Ashton court – we love it.
