RCF has expanded its low frequency offerings with the introductions of TTS15-A single 15" and TTS18-A MK2 single 18" loudspeakers. The TTS15-A's 15" woofer is powered by an onboard 1100-watt RMS Class-D amplifier with a frequency response from 40-400 Hz and 134 dB SPL maximum output. The TTS18-A MK2 is an upgrade to the original TTS18-A with new amplifier and transducer technology. This lets RCF increase the power by 40 percent to 1400 watts with frequency response down to 35Hz, and ability to achieve 136 dB max SPL. The transducer is an 18" hypervented woofer with 4" voice coil. RCF's propriety RDNet onboard allows for integration in total system design as well as the ability to remote monitor all components in the cabinet with DSP to incorporate into system audio control functionality. The design of the subwoofer cabinets allow them to be positioned vertically or horizontally, with M20 pole receptacles on both top and side.

In early February 2018, Katy Perry was finishing up the North America segment of her Witness: The Tour trek, which kicked off Sept. 19, 2017 at Montreal’s Bell Centre. This marked the completion of the first portion of this nearly year-long, seven-leg world tour, which is slated to wrap up in New Zealand on August 21, 2018. We caught up with the audio team to talk about the tour before they headed off for another 47 dates, which include Brazil, Japan, Germany, the UK and more, ending with six dates in Oceania. Mixing the tour at FOH is Toby Francis; Paul Jump is the FOH systems tech; and Dave Rupsch is handling monitors. Clair Global is the sound company supporting the production.

There is no doubt that transforming a “typical” house of worship setting into high performance venue is no easy task.

These can range from storefront conversions to elaborate architectural designs, and acoustical characteristics are rarely part of the original plan.
