Last February 16th Amate Audio in collaboration with Institut del Teatre ESTAE held a technical workshop focused on Line Array solutions. The workshop was held at Teatre Alegria in Terrassa – Barcelona, a multipurpose theatre that serves as a base center for the practice of the different disciplines taught by the Institut del Teatre.
The workshop was directed by Joan Amate, Vice President and Chief Technical Officer and Daniel Bartolomé, Product Application Engineer and was divided in two main parts: theory and practice.

Second part started with an overview of the products used for practice & demonstration: X210 line array, 6 systems. Lately, simulation and a practical exercise of temporal line array alignment was performed with 3 X218W3K subwoofers and a demonstration of remote control thanks to our DSPStudio® software, available for iPad and PC.
The day ended with a discussion of the most common problems in a line array setup and their possible solutions.
