Star Systems have been finding plenty of use or their new RCF TTL33-A active line array system since fielding it last summer at Thurles Greyhound Stadium in Co. Tipperary, Ireland, for a concert by all-girl group The Saturdays. At the time it was the largest RCF system ever rigged in Ireland.
This was to be repeated at Thurles Semple Stadium in July when 50,000 arrived at the stadium for the Senior Hurling All Ireland Quarter Final 2012.
Declan O’Sullivan runs the audio production company, who are based nearby. He stated, “The sound was unbelievable. We had two stacks of eight TTL33-A’s on 6m high towers, firing down the length of the pitch and six TTS36-A bass bins. The system was used for music playback and major game interviews — and we switched off the house system completely.”
He added, “The event was broadcast on RTE — but you could clearly hear the system 150 metres away. The sound threw brilliantly and was fully intelligible.”
The system is becoming increasingly in-demand and has also been out four or five times reinforcing Jedward’s live shows. Concludes O’Sullivan, “The TTL33-A wipes the floor in terms of speech clarity with every other system I’ve used and the fact that it’s three way is great because it makes it more adaptable.
