The UK Street Dance Challenge is a Street Dance weekend which took place at The Alton Towers Resort from Friday 27th February – Sunday 1st March 2015.
Cannock Sound Hire were approached by Dance Jam UK director, Mark Johnson and were initially asked to provide a sound system to be installed for the event. A connection was also needed for the DJ to link to the system.
Using the measurements of the room we were able to decide which of our systems would be best suited for this event and chose our Norton LS2 line array. We chose this system as it offers a very low frequency response while retaining the clarity of the higher frequencies.
To allow as much room as possible for the performers and spectators we decided to ground stack the system.
After digitally measuring the height and depth of the room we ran our Norton calibration software to carefully select the correct angles for the top LS2 cabinets to be positioned. This gave us maximum coverage of the room without the need to overpower those located closure to the system.
Working closely with technicians at Alton Towers we were able to specify our power requirements ahead of our arrival.
Norton Audio Line Array:
8x LS2 & 8x SB118
3x Norton CF10 Amplifiers
1x Yamaha LS9 - Digital mixer
Shure UHF SM58 Beta Microphones
1x Apple Mac Book Pro
