The eponymous concert, located in the Baltic coastal resort town of Palanga, has just been outfitted with a state-of-the-art Outline audio system. The system is designed to handle all the diverse demands of a contemporary performance space.

 

The Palangos Concert Hall was completed in 2015 with a capacity of 2,200 seats, its striking near-circular design providing both intimacy and space for a range of productions including concerts, festivals, TV projects, theatrical performances, conferences and other events.

 

Specified and installed by Outline’s Lithuanian distributor NO NOISE LT, UAB under the guidance of their CEOs Kestutis Dulinskas and Linas Kazlauskas, the system draws extensively on Outline’s product portfolio but features their very latest product, the groundbreaking Superfly compact line-source module.

 

The brief from the client was very specific, demanding powerful but unobtrusive sound reinforcement that would provide smooth, even coverage for the entire room.

 

Using a combination of CAD 3D files, Outline’s Open Array 3D prediction / analysis software and the experience gained from many shows in the venue, Dulinskas describes his system design:

 

‘The audio configuration is not simple, because of the size and shape of the room. The main L/R arrays consist of twelve Superfly plus six Mantas 28 per side, with the Superfly cabinets working like far-field boxes for the balcony while the Mantas are effectively downfill speakers, mainly covering the lower parts of the hall. It may seem like a lot of speakers for this size of venue, but we need them to cover the nearly 90-degree vertical audience geometry. At the same time we have a good vertical dispersion control which avoids reflections from the ceiling.’
