For the first time this year, the team at the Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show have asked us to provide a full low-impedance main arena PA system, utilising a series of BOSE 802 III weatherised cabinets, JBL VRX subwoofers and JBL AWC series speakers. All powered by circa 20K of QSC amplification.
This upgrade to their international arena brings with it an additional clarity and dynamic range which can only be achieved by using a low-impedance option. The addition of JBL VRX subwoofers, covering the large premium viewing areas, means that the audience can really feel the music as well as hear it.
This is very rare for an outdoor event of this type, and currently the only outdoor show engineered by ourselves which use a similar system is the Royal Welsh Show. Usually, a 100v main arena system is employed, which is easier to install, requires less power and much less cable – usually perfectly fine for these commentary-based events, but Bolesworth wanted to really push the limit of what is possible for outdoor equestrian events.
Supplying 3 double decker commentary boxes for the duration, stabling PA and engineering, B.S.B are happy to be back on site with the team this year.
The event runs from 11th-16th June, at Bolesworth in Cheshire. It is live streamed by ClipMyHorse here.
