PA System Hire Park Lane Hilton

20th February 2012

The venue was the infamous Park Lane Hilton nr. Hyde Park London . Blink Productions were running the event .
The Staging, lighting and star clothed drapes (which incidentally cloaked all 4 walls of the 35 x 25 meter room) Cocktail bar with a 2 meter deep black tiled and disco lighted floor were all supplied from other sources.
We at A1 Pro Entertainments were providing  the PA system for the DJ and an acoustic Duo .
Marc from Blink Productions wanted surround sound that was essentially for background effect. In total we used 8 EV SX 300 speakers equally spaced around the main room and the Ante Room, powered by the awesome Crown Macro Tech amps . Shard the DJ supplied the control (Mixer and CD decks ) This was plumbed into  the master Desk we were using that night, namely a Soundcraft EFX 14. Myself and Barney exacted the installation which was made easier by the fact that all the long cable runs could be hidden behind the drapes . The Musicians were unfortunately placed a good 20 metres from the control area. We ran one monitor speaker for them and DI'd their guitar.The singer who was fantastic ( did not get her name) used  a radio microphone. For Shard (the DJ) we gave him a Mackie SRM 450 for a monitor (Spoilt)! and a sub bass just so that he could have a bit of bottom end . The sound was good and everyone seemed happy
The shenanigans involved in the Loading bay area /Security Guys obviously caused a problem or two but for once I managed to complete a London delivery and set up and not get ticketed or pay some OTT parking fee
