The Crazy Reindeer complex in Lapland, Finland, offers full hotel and conference facilities, gourmet dining, saunas, a jacuzzi and a 1,500-capacity venue that is used as a club and live venue. Midas and Klark-Teknik distributors Oy Hedcom have supplied all of the Crazy Reindeer’s A/V equipment, which included a 52-input Midas Legend console in 2002 along with a Nexo sound system. This year, the venue has opted to install a full monitor system comprising a 48-channel Midas XL250, six Klark-Teknik DN360 graphic EQs, and Camco-driven Nexo PS15 wedges and sidefills.
According to Hedcom’s Ari Manninen, “The client had already made the decision to invest in Midas with the Legend 3000, and it’s proved to be an excellent choice. However, the place is packed to the rafters every night during the season, and it just got to the point where their existing monitor system was very obviously the weak link in the audio chain and a complete upgrade became inevitable. The XL250 fitted the bill perfectly. As with the Legend 3000, we’ve supplied the XL250 with a full touring package so that when it’s not working in the arena, it can go to local festivals and other events during the summer months if required.”
