Norwegian event production company Lydteamet has added an Alcons Audio LR18 compact mid-size line-array to its hire inventory. Supplied by Norwegian dealer Lydproduksjon, Lydteamet has invested in 36 LR18, 24 BF362 high-output subwoofers and 18 Sentinel10 amplified loudspeaker controllers, which can be deployed as one large system, two mid-sized or three smaller systems.

Established in 1991 and based in the town of Bodø, the company serves a large area of North Norway requiring its systems to be versatile, easy to transport and rig. Located just inside the Arctic Circle, Bodø stages a number of cultural festivals, as well as shows by international, national and local artists. Lydteamet also works on events throughout north Norway.

‘We are a long-time user of other loudspeaker brands and Alcons systems were new to us,’ says Lydteamet Production Manager, Holger Hansen. ‘We took a long time looking into various systems – the compact size of the Alcons LR18, the rigging arrangement and its fantastic output made it an easy choice. It’s very easy to rig and the weight is very low, making it easy to transport and able to be flown in many venues. Its directivity is very controllable and it sounds great.’

The pro-ribbon technology of the LR18 module makes it a versatile solution. As well as delivering exceptional audio quality and power, its accurate directivity and ease of rigging means that an inventory can easily be used as a number of different-sized systems.

The system was recently used on a performance by Sting in the Bodø Nordlandshallen and at the town’s Parkenfestivalen outdoor festival (featuring Franz Ferdinand, First Aid Kit and others), as well as on the Lamholmen festival in Svolvær and the opening ceremony of the Northern Norway Arts Festival.

‘We have had a lot of great comments about the system,’ Hansen reports. ‘One was that it’s the second best line array module available – there is only one better, and that’s the Alcons LR28.’
