American hip-hop artist Future chose an all-RCF system for his concert in Charlotte, North Carolina recently. The show was held in the renovated multi-purpose arena of the Bojangles Coliseum Complex.
Touring extensively in the US, Canada and Europe, the 32-year-old rapper has proved to be a real hitmaker with four studio albums plus several mix tapes and singles released since 2010, and over 1.3 million copies sold in the US.
The RCF system for the Charlotte show comprised:
—24 x TTL33-A active three-way line array for the main L&R
—12 x TTL33-A for the out fills
—4 x TTL33-A for the near fills
—15 x TTS56-A active subwoofer in cardioid arrays
—4 x TTS28-A active subwoofer for the stage side fills
—4 x TTL33-A for the stage side fill tops
—16 x NX12-SMA active coaxial floor monitors
RCF’s partner Raleigh, North Carolina-based Alpha Production Group provided the equipment for the event and worked together with RCF’s product specialists to ensure the best possible sonic performance for the 8000-plus audience that filled the arena.
The system was designed accurately to provide powerful and homogeneous coverage despite the acoustical challenges presented by Bojangles Coliseum, which has a complex seating layout and a large domed roof structure nearly 100 feet high.
The artist’s management reported their satisfaction with the choice of the equipment. Alpha Production Group is working directly with them to update the technical rider to include RCF as their preferred solution for Future’s one-off shows.
States Hayes Twisdale, owner of Alpha Production Group: “We work with RCF on all our major concerts, festivals, and corporate events. RCF provides unrivaled customer support in this industry and we are incredibly satisfied with our investment in their technology; it allows us to provide cost-effective audio solutions and systems to our clients without compromising on quality, durability and sonic performance.
