Manchester, England’s, Mardi Gras enjoyed an upgrade to its evening celebrations courtesy of KV2 Audio. At the Uni Challenge, held in six rooms of the Manchester Academy, 5,000 people were present for performances from bands God’s Kitchen, House Works, Federation, Heaven and Homo.
It was a chance to preview the new KV2 Audio VHD (Very High-Definition sub) running alongside the four stacks of ES 1.0s, 1.8s and ES 2.5s. Shaun Wilson of the event’s organizing committee noted, “In reality, [VDV] delivered more than we could have hoped for.” Terry George, A.P.N. director and TV personality, added, “The whole night was a huge success. We received so many brilliant comments about the sound, I felt very proud”
Shaun Collins of installation company 52nd Street supplied the audio/visual requirements for the festival’s evening celebrations, as he does each year. For DJ monitoring duties, EX 10s were used. Collins noted, “You couldn’t normally fit the P.A. for a 5,000-person dance event in the back of a Sprinter van. Even more remarkable was the setup time, lack of additional processing required and despite my continued work with KV2 systems, I was still genuinely impressed at the levels of clarity, volume, coverage and bass we achieved from just four stacks of this system.”
