On November 11, 2009 the “Salto Natale“ circus premièred their new show in Zurich-Kloten. This year’s motto is called “Nostalgia“. The initiators Rolf and Gregory Knie present a programme at the highest artistic and technical stage. During the pre-Christmas season, the annual winter circus with that special edge attracts ca. 60,000 visitors. Like in the seven previous years the audience gets much to laugh about, but is also showcased breathtaking circus arts, colourful costumes and, for the first time this year, a 10-piece live band.

 

Salto Natale Main Tent with Stoll FT 3210 Fullrange Tops

For bringing sound to the main tent with a seating capacity of 1200 people a Stoll system is used. There are six Stoll FT 3210 fullrange tops in use altogether. This 5-way top which is driven on two active ways yields a continuous sound pressure level of 132 dB and has a conical sound dispersion of 100 degrees. The system which is equipped with many small and powerful 5“ drivers has a radiation surface equivalent to that of three 12“ chassis. For the mid/high frequency range this is complemented by a 3“ driver without a pressure chamber and a 1“ driver. Owing to the characteristics of this system the demands of a regular sound irradiation of +/-3 dB and an SPL of 93 dBA with a 10 dB headroom have been met. The system is driven by a Dolby Lake controller and powered by Lab.gruppen power amplifiers.

Prior to the event Stoll Audio evolved an expert strategy for the main tent to analyse the room situation and coverage and also to work out the material and positioning concept. Before the start-up the systems were calibrated and optimised on-site to achieve an optimum result.
