With an anticipated audience of between 700-800 people for an afternoon of Armenian pop performances in prospect, the Homenetman Centennial Street Festival looked to LA-based Neptune Productions for its sound set-up. Neptune specified Vue Audiotechnik’s compact al-4 line array system to provide coverage for the outdoor stage and found that the audience size had grown four-fold to almost 3,000.

Homenetman Centennial Street Festival Rewaring Neptue’s faith, the system rose to the challenge in both coverage and clarity fort the crowd assembled in Glendale, California’s Central Park.

According to Neptune Productions President, Raffi Ganoumian, the al-4s performed beyond everyone’s already high expectations: ‘We knew the al-4s could more than handle the original audience projections upwards of 800 people, but we had no idea how much further we could push them. With Harut Pambukchyan on stage, we noticed the crowd start to grow rather quickly, so we started cranking the system up and gave it more and more juice and it performed like a champ.’

Situated in a grassy field in the park, the all-day Street Festival featured a variety of traditional and pop Armenian live music performances. Neptune specified a system comprising two stacks of Vue al-4 compact line array modules, hs-221 dual ACM subwoofers, and the hm-112 high definition stage monitors.

As Ganoumian explains, as the crowd swelled to more than 3,000, the al-4s provided more-than-ample coverage for an audience field of more than 200ft deep: ‘Perhaps the most amazing part is that the al-4s performed the way they did without the benefit of rigging,’ he explains. ‘In spite of not being flown 15ft in the air, and given their compact footprint, the al-4s performed so well that we completely impressed the performers that were on the stage, the organisers, and even ourselves. Now that’s something to celebrate.’
