The company responsible for this event, Audiomatrix, was in charge of the Vento Bonsai installation, which was acquired directly by the Gavisom company in Brazil.
The system was prescribed by Bruno Ramos, who is our new technical sales representative for Brazil and Angola.
The company Gavisom is one of the largest sound rental companies in the world, in charge of the famous Rock in Rio festival.
The Vento Bonsai performed the sound of the tent in the Vip area of Rock in Rio, Joaquín Núnez was the sound engineer who installed the Vento Bonsai in this tent, seeing the size of the place and the size of Vento Bonsai it would seem crazy to sound for fifteen days live groups, presentations and conferences with such a small system, Joaquín Núnez could not believe it, the performance and sound quality turned out to be amazing.
The Vento Bonsai is a “Line Array” in miniature with all the elements like one of a real size, it incorporates system of adjustable fittings, real mini-pins, flying bumper as one of normal size, the performance is supernatural for something so small , but the sound quality is not far behind, it sounds really good.
The system installed in this tent is composed of the following elements:
16 units Tops of the Vento Bonsai (Eight per side)
2 units Vento bonsai subwoofer 18.1 Auto amplified
2 units Vento bonsai subwoofer 18.1 passives
The system flew to 8 meters high, the subwoofer was placed in a central position, (The four subs) the module included in the auto-amplified subwoofer feeds up to eight units of the Vento Bonsai , as well as another twin passive subwoofer. The system used in this tent offers a total power of 8200 W RMS.
We need to comment that the system mainly performed the sound of live bands, at a really high sound pressure level, the system is supplied closed with two types of subwoofers, 15 “and 18” (a single transducer) each sub incorporates a power module with DSP, referring to the system we are talking about, each subwoofer incorporates a three-channel power module, one of 2500 W at 4 Ω and two of 800 W at 4 Ω, incorporating a DSP with screen and encoder for various basic functions, two inputs were incorporated to give the possibility of entering the tops and subwoofers differently, for example to adjust delays from the mixer without having to connect to the control software.
With regard to the DSP, this system incorporates the higest electronics made in Europe, the DSP incorporates Fir filters, for example, these modules are manufactured in Spain and Germany.
The tent in Rock in Rio where the Vento bonsai was installed was the size of a conventional circus, you can see in these images that the system, at first glance, seems so small that it does not even distinguish itself, we have bordered in red to place it.
The system played a live band full battery included at a large equipment pressure levels.
Carlos Kalunga, a brazilian sound systems engineer who works in AVID and distributes it in Brazil, traveled to Portugal from Brazil to give AVID technical assistance in this festival. He made a video praising the quality of the system, his comments were completely amazement about the quality and performance of the Vento Bonsai system, he said, I had never heard and seen anything like this, I am really impressed. These words on the part of a person of the reputation of this sound engineer attest to the high level of quality of this new system.
We would like to give great thanks to Joaquín Nunez for his work for all the photos and videos he made, also to Jorge Manuel da Cunha, manager of Audiomatrix. for giving us this opportunity.
