Remembrance Day PA System
We were asked to provide an outdoor PA system for a Remembrance Ceremony in London's Green Park. The challenge was to deliver the highest quality, feedback-free sound, ensuring the seated VIPs and several hundred standing spectators could clearly hear the ceremony, against the busy background traffic noise from Buckingham Palace Road and Grosvenor Place.
The PA system had to be visually unobtrusive, whilst remaining loud and clear, therefore we deployed four d&b audiotechnik E3 loudspeakers on twin forks, one pair either side of the site. The 90º horizontal dispertion of the E3s achieved even coverage across the site. Sennheiser 500 series cordless UHF microphones were chosen for their pickup pattern and high gain before feedback properties.
There was no mains electricity available to us in Green Park, so we also supplied a 'silent' generator to power our equipment. Everything worked as carefully planned and our client was delighted with the results, commenting on the "amazing sound from such small speakers".
