Mackie HD Keeps Redhook Outdoor Movies Less Silent

Aug 02, 2010

Redhook Mackie loves summer events especially summer events involving beer and movies. Redhook s Moonlight Cinema is just that, and is yet another of our longstanding Mackie traditions, dating back to the late 90s. Since the Redhook Brewery is a favorite of many Mackoids, and since it s right down the street from our home office, many of us would be attending the brewery s outdoor movie night anyway so why not show up with a mixer, a few speakers and a sound crew, too? Running sound is what keeps us all ticking, so getting out and doing it is a must for many of us.


This year, we are using our new HDA Arrayable Powered Loudspeaker System, ensuring that the crowd hears each and every articulate syllable, even as their vocal articulation declines over the course of the evening. Since the HDA is a scalable array, there are tons of possible configurations depending on the application. For these outdoor movie events, we used a highly portable system that used two HDA per side, each pole-mounted on top of an HD1801. A couple extra subs were used for maximum awe. It s a great example of how HDA can work for various applications a real plus for rental houses and sound companies.

This year s film lineup is a mixed-bag, with something for everyone (see the events ticker on our homepage for upcoming shows):
