A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd. (AC-ET) has supplied Dynamic Audio Device (D.A.D) loudspeakers to the Victoria Theatre, Halifax to provide high fidelity professional stage monitoring for performers during the venue’s diverse programme of shows and other live events.
Built in 1901, the 1,512-seater venue provides a sensational theatre experience and caters for everyone; from no-holds-barred rock ‘n’ roll, chart-topping pop, sumptuous ballet and opera, to cutting-edge comedy, fantastic family shows, musicals and not forgetting the annual pantomime!
The speakers were supplied as part of a full upgrade to the theatre’s audio system, with the sale handled by Steve Eaton, Senior Sales Executive in AC-ET’s dedicated Audio division.
Following a site visit to discuss the client’s technical needs and budget, Steve recommended the D.A.D speakers as a very cost-effective solution for delivering stage monitoring to complement the high performance of their new PA system and control desk, whilst enabling them to stay within their budget for the audio upgrade.
Steve supplied four D.A.D Touring Power series Touring12MA speakers to be used as front wedge monitors, and four D.A.D Fusion series Fusion12A speakers to provide side fills – all flightcased.
He commented: “The D.A.D. brand came to AC-ET’s attention four years ago due to its high performance at a very attractive price point, which we feel represents a new level of value for venues, installers and rental companies alike. For those looking to stretch their budget further without having to compromise on quality and performance, they should definitely catch a demo of the D.A.D. range on our stand at a tradeshow, or contact our specialist audio sales team. We are confident they won’t be disappointed!”
The theatre’s live audio is controlled via an Allen & Heath dLive S5000 digital console and DM48 MixRack system, which was also supplied by AC-ET.
Victoria Theatre’s Technical Manager, Oliver Brown commented: “The feedback we have had from performers about the D.A.D stage monitors is excellent. They are really impressed by the clarity and overall dynamics, which I agree are surprisingly good given the price. I can see why A.C. recommended them for our venue. We love them!”
