Axente Open Day
The well-publicized event proved to be popular drawing in nearly 1,000 attendees
Le Parc d L'evenement recently held its second annual open house in Longjumeau, south of Paris. Equal parts of business and pleasure, the well-publicized event proved to be popular, drawing in nearly 1,000 attendees.
Axente, exclusive distributor of D.A.S. Audio products for the French market, played an important role in this event, which was directed towards the company´s clients and open to professionals from the audio sector. Throughout the course of the afternoon session the most relevant aspects of the current world of professional audio were discussed, with special focus on live music systems.
To showcase their products, Axente provided sound and light for the large stage where different demonstrations were carried out with the help of the ultra-compact D.A.S. Aero 8A powered line array systems.
Two linear formations of 6 Aero 8A systems were set up at each wing of the stage. The large spectator area in front of the stage provided the perfect backdrop to display the outstanding qualities of this newest addition to the Aero Series 2 family of professional sound reinforcement systems.
As evening fell, and after the participating companies from diverse sectors related to events (from art communication to live performance) had concluded their demonstrations, The Eight Killers performed their "Blues Brothers Show" to the delight of the attendees.
To provide the sound for this performance, the Axente technicians distributed 12 D.A.S. Aero 12A self-powered line array systems in two linear formations of six units each at both ends of the huge stage. Powered high-performance D.A.S. LX-218A subwoofer systems were ground-stacked in front of the stage for low frequency support during the concert.
A DJ session drew the event to a close, keeping attendees up 'til dawn with a non-stop set. This festive atmosphere marked the end of an intriguing professional gathering in which D.A.S. systems, with the help of Axente, undoubtedly stole the show.
