ZL Production, located in Pilsen, Czech Republic, provided Adamson Systems Engineering sound reinforcement for the city’s kick-off celebration as the European Capital of Culture for 2015. 

 ZL Production, a long-time user of Adamson products, recently increased their Adamson inventory with 24 E-Series E12 line arrays and 16 E219 subwoofers. Those products join an already substantial amount of Adamson gear including Y10 and SpekTrix line arrays, T21 and SpekTrix subwoofers and M15 and M12 state monitors.

“We have been using Adamson products for events since our technical department started and have always been pleased with that decision,” adds Jan Lippert, ZL Production. “The development of Adamson products and their evolution as a company have closely mirrored our company. We are extremely happy with our mutual success.”

The European Capital of Culture is designated by the European Union and rotates annually to different European cities. ZL Productions provided sound reinforcement for the entire show including top Czech interprets and Swiss tightrope walker David Dimitri during their performances on the city’s Republic Square to kick of the festivities.

“25,000 people attended the celebration,” adds Lippert. “We provided 36 Adamson E12 line array enclosures for the main PA. Low end was supported by 16 E219 and eight E218 subwoofers. Julien Poirot from DV2 along with Ondřej Tureček (ZL production`s) designed a system that would provide consistent coverage throughout the square.”

One of the unique aspects of the event was that there were seven additional Adamson Systems arrays (42 SpekTrix enclosures) deployed at surrounding sites in Pilsen that were tied to the main PA in the town square. The audio systems from all stages were used simultaneously for a song composed especially for the event that combined videomapping, theatrical performance, and acrobats. The rest of the Adamson SpekTrix and Y-10 line arrays provided sound at video screens that were located in contiguous streets. 

“It was really quite spectacular,” concludes Lippert. “What a tremendous event to roll out our new Adamson PA. Everyone was quite pleased with the end result and the teamwork it represented.”
