German rental company Event & Veranstaltungstechnik Enchelmaier (EVE) has grown its inventory with the acquisition of a complete Martin Audio Wavefront Precision (WPC) system, SX218 and SX118 subwoofers, and new iKon iK42 amplifiers.

EVEA major user of Martin Audio’s line array systems since 2003, EVE owner Michael Enchelmaier explains: ‘I wanted a newer, more modern system to complement my W8LC, W8LM and WS218X, and meet the demand for new systems. With the WPC we can cover audiences of up to 3,500 people, and with a combination of W8LC and W8LM I can extend that to 8,000-10,000 people.’

The system has already been out on a number of shows, including The Hollies, where EVE flew two eight-element hangs of WPC – supported by a pair of SX218 subs, left and right – at both the Gewandhaus, Leipzig and Friedrichstadt Palast, Berlin. They also deployed Martin Audio’s popular Differential Dispersion DD6s for front fill, CDD8 Live for near fill, and their LE12JB stage monitors for foldback.

Enchelmaier confirms that the PA met the approval of the band’s production manager: ‘He was thrilled with the sound, the coverage and the way the system was set up in what were very complicated venues. ‘Once the room had been accurately designed in the software, the setup of the system itself is much easier [than previous systems], and the result is perfect,’ he adds. ‘In fact I’m thrilled with the new WPC; it sounds much more modern without losing its typical Martin Audio sound, which I like.’

Enchelmaier anticipates that his company will now be able to pitch for larger events as the system starts to find its way onto touring riders: ‘We are using the WPC system now for the more, higher quality gigs,’ he says. ‘For instance we are about to supply Bruce Springsteen’s guitarist Steve van Zandt (Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul) in Cologne.

‘We will continue to use the W8LC and W8LM as they still work well, and in all the years we have had them there has never been any problems. But I imagine we will invest further in WPC in due course.
