Adamson Systems Engineering formally introduced its ultra-compact S7 line array enclosures among other additions to the tour-proven S-Series to wide acclaim at Prolight + Sound 2019. Knowing that would be the case, Italian live event and production firm Pianozero joined the Adamson Network with an investment in a versatile new S7 system ahead of its public launch.
“The Adamson S7 is the product dedicated to those looking for a high-quality, versatile, and ultra-compact audio solution from a proven brand,” says Stefano Rocchi, Owner of Audiosales, Adamson’s exclusive Italian distributor. “Thanks to its growing profile in the Italian market, Adamson continues to be in high demand not only for major tours and festivals, but also luxury events, conventions, and other applications where the S7 is now an optimal solution due to its compact size and world-renowned performance.”
Pianozero’s new Adamson package is comprised of 16 S7 two-way, full-range line array enclosures and 12 complementary S118 subwoofers.
The S7 contains two ND7-LM16 Kevlar® Neodymium drivers (2x 16 Ω) and an NH3-8 1.4” exit compression driver (8 Ω). The critically optimized sound chamber produces a slightly curved wavefront with a nominal dispersion pattern of 100° x 12.5° (H x V). The chamber’s efficiency allows for increased vertical dispersion without sacrificing high frequency presence in the far field, and Adamson’s patented Controlled Summation Technology further eliminates low-mid lobing normally associated with two-way line source systems.
The S118 is the companion subwoofer to the S7, loaded with a lightweight, long excursion 18” ND18-S Kevlar® Neodymium driver utilizing Adamson’s Advanced Cone Architecture and a 4” voice coil for exceptional power handling. It is mounted in an ultra-efficient front-loaded enclosure, designed to reproduce clean, musical low frequency information.
“As a multi-service company, Pianozero is constantly seeking the best possible solutions for our customers’ needs, from lighting to audio to video and beyond,” begins Pianozero Owner Michele Rebesco. “Our customers always ask for state-of-the-art audio solutions, and we required a compact, high-performance PA system with simple rigging that would properly serve everything from big live shows to theatre applications to conferences. The only solution we found that met every one of our needs came from Adamson. We’re very happy to be one of the first companies in Italy that can offer our clients the brand-new Adamson S7 line array system.”
From its origins as a management company representing some of Italy’s best-known artists, Pianozero now boasts an events division that offers turnkey solutions for a wide array of applications, from live music and entertainment to corporate and luxury events and more. The company is based in the city of Marostica in Northern Italy.
