W8L FOR THE WTO
The Hong Kong Special Admin-istrative Region recently hosted the six-day Hong Kong Ministerial Conference World Trade Organisation - the first time an event of this
size has been staged in Hong Kong.
The Electrical & Mechanical Services Department was assigned to organise this convention, and Max Production Ltd were contracted to supply the sound system for the Wanchai Convention Centre.
As Sammy Mok had just brought 16 x Martin W8L line array enclosures for his company, he knew he had the armoury to provide even coverage throughout the large auditorium.
Patrick Lau from Dah Chong Hong Ltd helped the production company to undertake the acoustic modeling using Martin Audio's proprietary DISPLAY™ software as well as ensuring that clean feeds were provided for the radio and television trucks.
Max Production reinforced the W8L hangs with 16 x WSX subs - all powered with Martin Audio MA 4.2s amplifiers - while 20 LE400C floor monitors were used on stage.
The ease of set up and the performance of the W8L was very impressive. As a result Sammy Mok is already planning to increase his inventory of Martin Audio cabinets.
