Chennai, India, June 2014 — AV Express, an audio-visual equipment hire company based in Chennai in India, recently added a QSC WideLine-10 system to their sound reinforcement inventory comprised of 16 three-way WL2102-w modules with six GP218-sw subwoofers.
For a decade, AV Express on India's East coast, has been one of the city's premier audio-visual events hire companies, handling audio, video and lighting for everything from live bands and DJ sets to corporate shows. "When we were looking for a new system to upgrade our existing audio inventory, we would not compromise," comments Mr Murugesh, one of AV Express's principal partners. "We had a lot to choose from, but only the QSC WideLine system matched our parameters of quality and performance. Plus, QSC’s representative, Pro Visual Audio, walked us through the entire operation and workflow of the system during our demo, and gave us a clear idea of the advantages of the WideLine system over all of the other competitors in its class."
AV Express's new WideLine-10 system consists of 16 ten-inch WL2102-w three-way speakers, each offering 140-degree horizontal coverage, along with six dual 18-inch GP218-sw subwoofers. QSC PL380s and PL325s handle the amplification. Following the purchase, AV Express immediately put the new system to the test with two major live events at the Karunya University in Coimbatore and the Jawarharlal Nehru Stadium in Chennai. Pro Visual Audio's Application & Business Development Manager, Deepak Gracias, was present with the AV Express team on site for both events to guide them through the process of aligning the complete system and tutor the team in using EASE Focus to create customised system design with respect to each venue.
The new WideLine-10 system was then used in full force at the annual celebration to commemorate the foundation of Nokia's manufacturing plant in Chennai. "The WideLine's 140-degree coverage makes it absolutely fantastic for shows where the audience is spread across a wide horizon," continues Mr Murugesh. "We’ve used the system quite a few times now, and not once did we ever encounter the problem of ‘dead zones’ or low throw/low impact areas. And the matching pair of subs provides that solid thump and punch which crowds absolutely love. We found our WideLine-10 to be every bit as good on the field as it claims to be on paper, and the team at Pro Visual Audio, especially their South Area Sales Manager Mr. Harry Martin, have been extremely supportive at every step."
"AV Express shares a lot in common with QSC — both brands stand for high standards in performance and delivery," adds Sandeep Braganza, Application & Business Development Manager at Pro Visual Audio. "As QSC’s official representative in India, Pro Visual Audio is pleased to have played its role in helping AV Express find their perfect system."
