Newcastle-based production company NiteLites has replaced their front line inventory of sub-woofers with 24 of Martin Audioâ€™s WS218X twin 18in high-output enclosures.
This large-scale system was immediately pressed into service with two high-profile DJ arena shows with crowds of 10,000 people â€” first with David Guetta, who played Edinburghâ€™s popular Royal Highland Centre at Ingliston, followed by DJ Tiestoâ€™s performance at Braehead Arena in Glasgow.
According to NiteLites director, Jamie Moore, both were exceptional shows, which provided a great baptism for the speakers.
â€œWe had needed more subs to do some cardioid stacking â€” and with these shows coming up, coupled with the start of the fireworks season, we knew we were not going to reinvest in the brand we had been using previously.â€?
Instead he opted for the WS218X. â€œThis is one of the best 2 x 18 subs within that price bracket on the
market, and we have been a fan of the brand since the early days â€” in fact since my father started the business.â€?
With the two DJ shows, the subs also demonstrated their versatility. All 24 enclosures were out at both events, stacking in a cardioid array with Guetta and set in four stacks of six for Tiesto.
In addition to the WS218X, NiteLites also run 20 x Martin Audio low profile LE1500â€™s as their main floor monitors.
