German car manufacturer Audi has turned its HQ and manufacturing base in Ingolstadt into something of a tourist attraction, visited annually by around 500,000 people. At the end of the year, the company turned its customer center in the #Audi Forum Ingolstadt into a festive concert hall.
900 people attended this year’s Christmas concert featuring soloists Chen Reiss and Michael Nagy, under the baton of Evan Christ. The programme combined classical works with international Christmas songs.
Showem, one of the leading suppliers of NEXO systems in Germany, is the regular provider of sound reinforcement for this prestigious event.
For an audience seating area of approximately 45 meters, Showem specified the GEO M6 compact line array, using white cabinets that virtually disappeared from view. In each hang were 3 x M6B bass modules and 9x M620 2-way cabinets. The location also called for bass reinforcement, so 2x CD12 subs were positioned on either side of the stage for this purpose. NEXO PS8s were used for frontfill.
