Melodia Sound reinforces Boyz II Men in Jakarta

Indonesia:

Melodia Sound was hired to provide the audio setup for the recent Boyz II Men concert at the Tennis Indoor Senayan stadium in Jakarta. The rental company has a long-standing relationship with the concert’s promotor, Boart Indonesia, which has become familiar with Melodia Sound’s work and use of Outline solutions.

‘We have worked together with Boart Indonesia for a long time and they know the quality and capability of our rental company and the Outline equipment we provide,’ said Rudy Winarto, director of Melodia Sound. ‘We have worked with them since the early days, back when we had an Outline Butterfly and Mantas system in our inventory.’

As the American hip-hop group, Boyz II Men, took to the stage in Jakarta, Melodia Sound provided some of its current Outline inventory. The main PA was formed of nine flown Outline GTO C-12 enclosures per side, accompanied by 10 ground-stacked DBS 18-2 subwoofers. Six Outline Eidos 12 SP speakers provided front-fill, and another four were employed as stage monitors. Side-fill was delivered by four GXR-D15 speakers and four GXR-18S subwoofers from Lynx Pro Audio, while GR-18S sub-bass cabinets served as drum-fills.

Boyz II Men’s FOH engineer Greg Barkulis handled the mix using an Avid Venue Profile. In addition, Melodia Sound supplied a DiGiCo SD10 running on a Waves server for the monitor mix.

The microphone setup included four Shure UHF-R wireless systems using Beta 58A handheld mics for vocals and another pair of UHF-R systems with UR1 bodypacks were issued for the guitarists. Wireless in-ear monitors were also handed out in the form of eight Sennheiser G3 ew 100 IEMs with three spare beltpacks at the ready just in case. The drummer, meanwhile, was provided with a Shure PSM600 IEM system.

Melodia Sound’s remit covered more than providing the sound reinforcement setup, as the rental company also supplied the backline rig, which included Yamaha’s Motif synthesisers and PHX drum kit, a Roland V-Synth GT synthesiser, and guitars from Gibson and Fender.

‘The main challenge during this project was meeting the backline requirement for the Boyz II Men rider,’ revealed Winarto. ‘But we managed to provide them with everything they needed. It was also very challenging to deploy the PA system inside the venue as it is a highly reverberant space. Therefore, we had to ensure we had properly aligned and adjusted the sound system.’

Fans went home happy, as Boyz II Men performed a setlist containing many of their greatest hits. According to Winarto, the band, promotor and FOH engineer were just as pleased with the sound system. ‘Greg Barkulis, the FOH engineer, told us that he thought the Outline system performed very well and that he had enough headroom, as well as the clarity needed, even though the room is lacking in acoustic treatment.’
