Thorpe Park Resort theme park in Surrey has recently been supplied with a
complete EM Acoustics audio system based on the HALO-Compact line array system
supplemented with MSE-218 subs, AD and AQ amplifiers and a number of just-
launched M-C12 monitor speakers. The complete system as well as lighting
equipment was supplied and installed by production solution specialists, White Light.
The system was purchased largely to cater for Thorpe Park’s busy outdoor events
season which includes the monthly Ministry of Sound club nights and the Island
Beats concerts over the summer.
White Light’s business development manager, Jonathan Haynes, led the project.
“After a number of onsite product demonstrations, it quickly became apparent that
the EM Acoustics system was ideally suited to their requirements as it provided the
flexibility they required in order to handle the wide variety of events and functions
held at Thorpe Park.’ White Light supplied a full EM Acoustics system comprising 20
HALO-C line array elements, eight MSE-218 subs, three AQ-10 and 4 AD-9
amplifiers in addition to eight M-C12 monitor speakers.
EM Acoustics provided comprehensive onsite training for Thorpe Park’s technical
team in order to familiarise them with their new system and to explain how it can
quickly be upscaled for larger, one-off events. Indeed, the system can easily be
supplemented by the hire of additional boxes from White Light’s rapidly growing
rental inventory of EM Acoustics equipment.
According to Thorpe Park’s Entertainments technical coordinator, Martin Swain, the
installation has been a complete success. “We had a great experience working with
White Light,’ he commented. “They were extremely understanding when it came to
our needs and not only worked within our budget but provided the necessary
solutions to any issues we faced. We’re delighted with both the equipment and the
service provided by all concerned.’
