Willy-Brandt-Halle, Mühlheim / 2018
The in-house sound reinforcement system in the Willy-Brandt-Halle in Mühlheim, Germany was updated using K 20 systems for the front of house. The two horizontally mounted double-clusters are fitted with different horns in each element to best match the system coverage to the auditorium.
GL 24 systems were installed as delays, and a centrally mounted GL 8 serves as a front-fill. Four double-18" TSE infra sub-woofers cover the low-frequency range from 35 - 80 Hz.
Martin Deiß, general manager and technical director, chose this concept after a comprehensive test phase, to best meet the high demands on sound quality, uniform coverage, and high sound levels when required.

Paulaner on the Nockherberg -
Galeo S, Galeo T
The event location at the famous "Paulaner am Nockherberg" in Munich was completely renovated in 2017. The 3500 seat banquet hall now has a new sound system comprising of SEEBURG Galeo T and Galeo S systems, and the lighting system was changed to all LED technology (moving heads & ambient lighting).
An AMX media controller was installed to enable presets to be recalled from control panels at various points in the room, and for individual changes. The AV networking is realised via a fibre optic network including Dante Audio Network technology. The large stage is completely movable for variable use of the hall.

K Sub 1801 dp,
After completion of a comprehensive renovation, the Konzert Theater Bern was provided with a new sound reinforcement system. Two stacked GL 16 i dp Systems per side precisely and unobtrusively cover each of the three balconies and the stalls. Eight K Sub 1801 dp are invisibly integrated in niches in the walls. Opaque acoustic gauze covers the openings. The loudspeaker are individually controlled via a Nexus Matrix. A Galeo S Line Array is available to be used in addition as a mono cluster for concert situations. The total amplifier power of the system is approximately 36 kW.

G Sub 1501 dp+, and i 5 and A 1 cabinets serve as near-field and delay lines.
St. Nikola Kirche, Passau / 2016
The renovation of the St. Nikola Church in Passau was completed at the end of 2016. As part of the renovation, the sound reinforcement system was completely renewed. Jaggo Media installed L-series line sources driven by Crown Xti amplifiers. The sound system is operated directly in the church via a touch panel which calls up presets in an audio matrix.

Sushi & Grill restaurant UMAMI, Konstanz / 2015
12 x i 4
In December 2015, the Media Technologie supplier a2r:media installed a modern sound system in the Sushi and Grill Restaurant UMAMI in the inner City in Konstanz. The requirement set by the owners and the Architekt team was for a high quality system providing homogenus sound level in the entire Restaurant, which would sound equally good at high and low levels. The choice was made for 12 of the extremly unobtrusive i 4 Loudspeakers, complemented by two compact G Sub 1001 subwoofers. A zone mixer at the bar provides central control for all areas. The system is powered by DSP controlled Crown power amplifiers. The result is most impressive, and well integrated in the Architectural concept, as the Loupspeakers could be installed such as to be practically invisible.

Theater Freiburg / 2015
9 x L 16i integrated in the stage portal.
In conjunction with the renewal of the Audio and Sound Reinforcement systems in the Freiburg Theatre, nine L 16 i line source loudspeakers were installed as a horizontal array over the complete width of the stage portal. The resulting effective length is just short of 12 m.The extreme effective driver length means that the listener is always in the near field range of a line source driver whose horizontal coverage is very narrow, so that very little energy reaches the side wall surfaces, resulting in minimal room reverberation. In the standard vertical orientation,
the L 16 i has an 80° horizontal coverage. In this case, with the cabinet mounted horizontally and appropriately angled downwards, the 80° angle now provides near constant level coverage for the entire auditorium from the first to the last row.

Kongresshalle am Zoo Leipzig / 2015
am Zoo Leipzig restored to former glory.
After 5 years of construction and renovation, the restoration of the historic congress centre Kongreshalle am Zoo Leipzig was completed on the 29th. of May, 2015. The project included, along with the restoration of the Great Hall, the completion of a further 14 rooms. The combination of restoration and new construction opens the way for the future usage of the complex as a top end conference and culture centre. The predominant choice for installation by SEA Leipzig was Line Arrays from the GL Series to meet the high standards of the architecture and the desired acoustic quality. In the Great Hall, a Galeo system consisting of 6 Galeo elements and one Galeo Sub per side provides high level acoustic quality and speech intelligibility. Due to the high power reserves of the system of around 20 kW., the system is, in addition to speech transmission, also optimally suitable for concerts.
