L-Acoustics powers Mark Tuan at Thailand’s biggest concert venue


As large-scale live shows begin to return to delight fans across Asia Pacific, one of the region’s biggest stars, California-born Mark Tuan, recently wrapped up two sold-out concerts and fan meets at Bangkok’s Impact Arena. Bangkok-based 4NOLOGUE, an event organiser, talent management agency and television and music producer promoted the event turned to local audio-visual provider PM Center Co Ltd’s trusted team of audio professionals to deploy tour-level sound in the largest concert venue in Thailand, selecting an L-Acoustics loudspeaker system.

The multi-purpose Impact Arena—which includes a convention centre that can be used for sporting events, conferences, and concerts—was chosen as the perfect place for Mark Tuan to perform and meet with more than 10,000 fans over two nights.

“Our first choice for concerts of this size is always an L-Acoustics system,” said Thanakorn Tangsereewongsa, head of business development at PM Center, which boasts an inventory of L-Acoustics products from Certified Provider Distributor Vision One. “Most artists’ concert riders specifically list L-Acoustics above others. In our experience, a comprehensive L-Acoustics system provides our engineers with dedicated tools for system optimisation and calibration.”

The Impact Arena, with more than 7m-high ceilings and smooth, hard walls, is a difficult venue for sound designers. “Our team knew that reflections would be their main challenge,” explained Tangsereewongsa. “The team relied on L-Acoustics K2 with Panflex horizontal directivity to reduce reflections and keep the powerful sound on the audience area only.”

Using Soundvision 3D modelling software, a system consisting of main arrays of 20 L-Acoustics K2 was deployed with two arrays of eight K1-SB subwoofers flown behind. Out-fill arrays consisting of nine K2 over three Kara II down per side were added, as well as two arrays of six K2 per side for delay. To add more power to the low end, the team deployed 24 L-Acoustics SB28 ground-stacked subwoofers across the front of the stage. The entire system was powered by 32 LA8 and six LA12X amplified controllers.

“Soundvision ensured PM Center’s design would be the perfect configuration for the venue space,” commented front of house engineer and system designer Chayut Boonchuayjaroen. “Then, when we were on-site, tuning the system via LA Network Manager was swift and decisive, thanks to our pre-calculations: this assured me that I would be able to mix intuitively on a clear, pristine-sounding system.”

The team from PM Center was confident that the reliability of the L-Acoustics system would ease them back into supporting high-profile live shows, delivering uniform coverage and ideal SPL to each fan. “As our first choice system for the PULL-UP concerts, it did not disappoint. The complete control and optimisation our team applied to the project yielded fantastic results that were felt and heard by all of Mark Tuan's die-hard fans in the arena,” concluded Tangsereewongsa.
