M28’s first public performance was at the annual party for all employees of Munich Airport, an entertainment for 4000 people which featured high production values. On either side of the 12m-wide stage, Limelight set up left and right STM arrays, each with 3x B112 bass and 9x M28 main cabinets, with 4x S118 subs groundstacked below each array. Additional outfill was provided by a total of 14x GEO S12 cabinets. Completing the NEXO story was a PS15-R2 stage monitor system.
“I heard the system in Paris but this was our first time out with it,” explains Limelight Technical Director and system designer Marcel Petras. “It did a great job, with a lot of headroom and a great sound. In fact, we didn’t want to turn on the S12 outfills! My FOH engineer Oliver Matte told me he got goose bumps when he first fired up the system!”
The M28 is a superbly versatile loudspeaker. It can be teamed with other loudspeaker elements in the STM Series to create a wide variety of systems for different applications. It can deploy as a downfill for the STM M46 main cabinet, or as a primary line array module. It can fly in line with STM B112 bass cabinets when extra headroom and LF response is required. The wide operating frequency range means that many speech or light music events can be run effectively with M28 alone, thereby removing the need for any extra cabinets. If programme material calls for low frequency extension, the 25-120Hz range of the STM S118 sub and the 55-200Hz range of the STM B112 bass offer configuration options to achieve the desired frequency response or power.
