Danish castle concert chooses L-Acoustics? Kara

L-Acoustics’ Kara WST modular line source system was recently used for Denmark’s annual Ledreborg Slotskoncerter (Ledreborg Castle Concert).

Having supplied equipment for the event for almost 20 years, Danish company Moto Rental provided the Kara WST system along with SB18 subs for the concert, which was hosted by the Danish National Chamber Orchestra with various guest performers. The system was chosen by FOH engineer Henrik Bonné.

"Everyone was very excited about getting this large Kara/SB18 system,” said Bonné, who has mixed the concert since 1995. “Normally we work with V-DOSC in larger venues and Kara in smaller venues. But using Kara on this large outdoor concert, which attracted with 24,000 people over two days, really impressed us. We only received good, positive feedback about the sound."

The main system consisted of 20 Kara cabinets each for left and right hangs, with an extra four for front fill, with eight flown SB18s per side and three 115HiQ coaxials as infill speakers. In addition, Moto also supplied a delay system of eight stacked Kiva ultra compact line source cabinets and two Kilo low frequency extensions (left), six flown Kiva and two Kilos (centre), and four stacked Kiva and two Kilos (right). 16 12XT coaxials were used for delay throughout the park, with the whole system powered by 20 LA8 amplified controllers.
