Chicago, IL (March 27, 2015)—Chicago-based Mango Audio, an audio provider for Midwest events ranging from the annual Chicago Cuban and Puerto Rican festivals, to national soccer tours, to Quinceanera coming of age parties, recently took on an RCF TT+ Series system, adding it to the sound reinforcement supplier’s audio arsenal.
“We were looking for a rig that could handle the wide variety of events we are involved in,” said Mango owner Oscar Villegas, “from indoor events of 2,000 to outdoor festivals of 20,000-plus.”
The RCF TTL33-A met the criteria. A three-way line array cabinet, the active 2500-watt TTL33-A features two 8-inch low-frequency transducers, an 8-inch midrange and three 1-inch high frequency drivers. This system is small enough to fill banquet hall and ballroom events, yet large enough for festivals.
Mango Audio has been using other aspects, too, such as RDNet management and monitoring software along with the Shape Designer modelling program.
“With Shape Designer, we can model a room before we ever get on site,” says Villegas. The program provides a graph of SPL coverage, and provides all the mechanical positioning of the cabinets to vastly reduce the time of set up on site. RDNet provides the ability to fine-tune the cabinets based on room size, environment and conditions. Parameters of gain, equalization and delay can be properly programmed. Plus, the RDNet allows for monitoring of all individual components in the cabinets at assure the show runs smooth.
