Brunvoll Thrusts Into New Era With Renkus-Heinz

Molde, Norway | July, 2016 - "When we started with the project we saw that the room has big columns, large windows and a balcony with glass in front, so all of those factors made for more of a challenge. But it's not really so much of a challenge for Renkus-Heinz; it's just a matter of identifying where to put the speakers and optimizing the beam-steering to minimize reflections. Even for this space, we installed two IC Live columns and two small loudspeakers on each side as fills – it was no more complex than that." Jo Tore Bæverfjord, Molde Forum AS

Redlands, California | April, 2016 - "One of the biggest reasons I chose the Iconyx Gen5 was the precise coverage. The choir stands with the main loudspeakers just to their right and behind them, which I expected to be an issue. There was no way around placing the speakers there, but with the Iconyx beam steering, we had no feedback issues at all, which is amazing." Patrick Ireland, Ireland Sound Systems
