DAWG uses KV2 for 2019 Pacific Games


DAWG Professional Audio has worked with KV2 to deploy a sound system for the opening and closing ceremony at this year’s Pacific Games in Samoa.

DAWG is owned by Corey Keil. Keil came across KV2 at Prolight + Sound after hearing two SL412s running with four double 21-inch subs on the demo stage. Since then, Keil’s KV2 inventory has grown and DAWG has had success with its rental inventory.

Taking into the account the requirement to fill the field with a limited inventory, Dave Croxton, sales director of KV2, worked with Keil and his team on a solution. ‘Initially, when Corey sent the stadium plans across to KV2 we looked at a time-aligned distributed system pointing out into the stands,’ said Croxton. ‘When I arrived, however, we realised that there was also a requirement to fill the field where the athletes would sit, and hundreds of school kids would perform. As we had limited inventory, it was decided we would set up a physically time-aligned system in a line on one side of the stadium shooting across the field to the main grand stands.’

Working together, Keil and Croxton decided to install two VHD2.0s from 6m towers to throw across the field, while a pair of SL412 wide-dispersion cabinets were set up on lower towers to cover the main field with two ES systems, each comprising two ES2.26 double 15-inch subwoofers and a three-way ES1.0s, along each end of the stadium.

A sub-bass cannon made up of three VHD4.21s was used to produce an even bass distribution across the entire stadium, with ESR212 three-way cabinets set on the VHD2.16 double 15-inch sub to cover the main stadium.

‘We measured 100dB peaks with amazing full-range clarity at the top of the main grandstand and the whole stadium was covered perfectly,’ recalled Keil. ‘The success of these events will open the doors for other opportunities throughout the Pacific islands. The small amount of speakers required in relation to the coverage and output we can achieve means we can easily ship the system from island to island and quickly set up for world-class performances for audiences large or small.’
