Formerly a “just rock” venue, Milan, Italy–based The Rolling Stone has seen more than just metalheads gracing its stage, hosting private events for Italian royalty such as Armani, Cavalli, Versus and Eros Ramazzotti, and for the likes of The Rolling Stones. Adamson’s Italian distributor, Reference Laboratory’s Angelo Tordini, spec’d and designed the main hall installation, which features three complete systems, one of which is a full-size, flown, concert setup comprising two arrays of a single Y10 sub on top, with four Y10s and four SpekTrix 5-degree boxes flown as in a underhang. Two Y10 subs are placed on the ground and Reference Laboratory monitors are used onstage.
The second system is a surround-style system used for club nights and private events. The independent club system has two arrays of one SpekTrix Sub and a four SpekTrix underhang, placed directly opposite of the concert system, as well as a single T21 sub hung in the center of the room, pointing down from the ceiling, providing 140.5 dB of continuous SPL to keep the masses dancing all night.
The third system is Reference Laboratory’s proprietary speakers hung from the ceiling in the glass-shielded room underneath the balcony, which is directly behind the seated stair area of the main floor. It contains two bars, a lounge and a conversation area. The two monitoring areas are up on a private balcony with a circular staircase straight off the stage. Front of house receives a custom barricade on the floor during concerts, placed directly in front of the seated stairs. Both Adamson sound systems are equipped with the European-standard Adamson turnkey solutions package for power and processing, complete with Lab.gruppen amplifiers and XTA processing.
