The tenth annual (2009) Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival saw hundreds of performers across five stages, with a wide range of artists including Paul McCartney, Leonard Cohen, The Cure, The Killers and hip hop pioneers Public Enemy, among many others.  
  It was followed by the growing Stagecoach Country Music Festival, held on the same beautiful desert location at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, CA (east of Los Angeles) and featuring top country artists such as Kenny Chesney, Kid Rock, Brad Paisley, plus dozens of others. The two events offered performances by nearly 160 other artists packed into five collective days.
  Attendance reports vary, but the aggregate attendance for both events is estimated to be about 250,000, with the three-day Coachella reporting about 160,000 (its second best ever) and the two-day Stagecoach accounting for the rest, reporting it’s highest attendance figure to date.
  Paul Tollett, president of event promoter Goldenvoice, noted that the figures are good news for the concert industry. “Anyone that has a business in 2009 is just trying to make sure that you dodge a bullet,” he told The New York Times in the aftermath. “But this went beyond that. We’re super happy.”
  Production Manager Kevan Wilkins is directly responsible for the operation and success of the production of Coachella and Stagecoach, as well as the safety of the 200,000-plus ticket holders. Part of the team since the second Coachella, he’s know for his vision, expertise and, most importantly, calmness under pressure.
  At it has for nine of the past 10 years (and all three Stagecoach Festivals), Rat Sound Systems provided sound reinforcement and support, this year serving all five stages (three for Stagecoach). This year, more than 30 members made up the sound team, headed up company President Dave Rat.
  For the main stage, the company assembled a huge main stage system with twin line arrays comprised of 15 L-ACOUSTICS K1 enclosures topped by eight K1-SUB boxes and tailed by three dV-DOSC downfills. Additional arrays of eight K1 plus three dV-DOSC provided far left and right side coverage.
  Low-end was delivered 32 SB28 subs arranged in cardioid stacks across the front of the stage. L-ACOUSTICS ARCS cabinets delivered nearfill, while stage monitoring was accomplished via 115XT HiQ wedges.
  Two arrays of nine V-DOSC boxes each were flown out in the audience area as delays, and power for all systems was provided by numerous LA-RAK touring racks loaded with LA8 amplified controllers located under the stage.
  More than 50 EAW MicroWedge Series MW12 stage monitors were employed over four Coachella stages, the largest outlay of MW units ever for a single event. “The MicroWedge is a great monitor under any circumstances, and I’m proud to have been intimately involved in its design,” stated Dave Rat. “It especially offers an advantage for festival sound because it’s plug-and-play. And the sound is great - it’s full range.”
  Jon Monson, who heads up systems and tours for Rat Sound, appreciated the ease with which the large-scale K1 system could be flown, crediting its captive rigging facilities.   
  In addition to the K1 system used on the Coachella Stage (Mane Stage), Rat Sound specified L-ACOUSTICS systems for the two desert festivals’ other stages, including a V-DOSC/SB28 system at the Outdoor Theatre (Palomino), V-DOSC at the Sahara Tent (Mustang), and KUDO at the Mojave Tent.
  “I cannot begin to say how excited I am about the response to our new PA. We knew the K1 system was great but this level of enthusiasm from all angles, was unexpected. It’s clean, it’s clear and it’s loud and the coverage is phenomenal,” Rat said. “There is just nothing else out there that can do what this system can do.”
  “The response from Goldenvoice, the promoter of both festivals, has been pure positive as well,” he continued. “Not only did they notice the sonic difference, but I am told they are surprised at getting calls about how amazing the show sounded.”
  Goldenvoice Production Manager Kevan Wilkins confirms this fact: “I was blown away when I heard that McCartney thought it was a great live sound,” he says. “As for me, personally, it was amazing.”
Be sure to take our Photo Gallery tour of a wide range of photos of the systems, gear and audio crew at the festival.

这个帖子在哪里见过?用的是LA的东西,还有四周有很多低音,最下面的是背对着观众面对着舞台打的。当时很多人感到迷惑老外这样的用意。呵呵

Coachella音乐节,在美国加州。现在也算是美国最有名的音乐节之一了。主舞台两侧各用了15只 L-ACOUSTICS K1,8只K1-SUB ,3只dV-DOSC downfills,辅助阵列用了8只k1,3只dV-DOSC downfills
下面超低用了32只SB28,加上其他四处舞台,返送用了超过50只的EAW MW12。恩,场面是不小。
这点鸟语俺还能看个差不多。

低音最底下一只反向摆放,并且还会加一个小的延时量,使多只超低音音箱阵列后形成类似心形的指向性,减小对舞台方向的干扰,尤其在舞台对某个低音频率共振很强时,调整延时量,可以最大程度削弱那个频点的反向能量。现在有很多超低音音箱,会在背面设置单元,使音箱自身就具有指向性。我记得meyersound的m3d线阵列的低频就是有指向性的。
