Located in Rạch Giá, Vietnam, the Kiên Giang Music Theatre has gained recognition for its commitment to preserving and promoting the revered folk-art form of “cải lương” – a complex artistic genre that blends traditional melodies with various musical instruments. Audiences therefore can expect performances and production values of the utmost artistic quality.
When the time came to modernize the sound system at the large theatre, many considerations came into play. Beyond the seamless coverage and sonic finesse required to convey the powerful emotions of the performances, the system also needed to provide ample output capacity for contemporary program material.
To achieve this goal, integrator Truong Thinh worked closely with experts from Electro-Voice and Dynacord to specify a state-of-the-art solution. This solution included two hangs of nine Electro-Voice X1 line-array loudspeakers supported by 10 X12-128 dual-18” subwoofers, all driven by Dynacord IPX series power amplifiers, along with multiple Electro-Voice ETX and EKX powered speakers serving as fills and stage monitors, and a selection of Electro-Voice wired/wireless microphones to capture every detail on stage.
As well as delivering the coverage and power the theatre required from an acoustic angle, the PA’s compact form factor minimises its visual impact from an aesthetic perspective.
This complete system solution provides an exceptional audio experience for shows and events at the theatre and has invigorated the presentation of cải lương for new generations to enjoy.
