Oxford-based W E Audio has recently extended its inventory of MLA Compact and MLA Mini to meet the rising demand for this multiple awarding winning series across open air/festival applications, whilst increasing their system capabilities for large touring purposes.


W E Audio was the first rental partner in the UK to invest in MLA Compact back in 2013, and their most recent investment has included another 24 MLA Compact, bringing their stock to a total of 48 elements. In addition, the recent purchase also included four more DSX-F Flying double 18” subs and four MLX Hybrid double 18” subs that will be used as ultra-sub extension and support dry hire market demands.


Furthermore, the order extended to an additional six MLA Mini enclosures, taking their stock to eight complete systems. This comprises a total of 32 MLA Mini elements and eight MLX single 15”subs. Finally, 12 DD6s, that are gaining a strong reputation for their excellent coverage and powerful punchy sound from such a small box, were also added to W E Audio’s inventory, to support their corporate sector business.


W E Audio’s experienced MD, Wayne Barker, has long favoured new technology adoption, and this comprehensive additional inventory continues to keep that reputation intact. “We specialise in providing site public address and noise abatement so we knew that having such a leading system would open up a lot of doors for us, and this has proven to be the case.”


After debuting their MLA Compact system as part of a dry hire solution for Hyde Park in 2013 it has gone on to reinforce many shows and events in its own right, including Summer Pops at Buxton Opera House, Bristol International Balloon Fiesta, Bournemouth Air Festival, The London Marathon and most recently a UK and European tour with Rumer that featured both MLA Compact and MLA Mini. For that tour, Mike Timms FOH engineer said: "We received first class service from W E Audio for the Rumer UK tour, with some tricky venues handled very nicely by their Martin Audio MLA systems.”


As W E Audio co-director, Rylan Machin, commented:, “This investment is vital to round out our offering for larger venues, events and tours to include outfill, infill and, on stage as side fills. Equally, our ability now to meet second stage requirements, alongside the demand of an ever increasing number of conference and corporate events that we supply, gives us added flexibility and revenue opportunity.”


Luke Ireland, managing director for Martin Audio summarised: “Our partners are seeing increased demand for MLA technology and WE Audio has recognised the opportunity that this represents by expanding their rental stock significantly.”

On Monitors the festival saw our new Midas Pro2 digital mixing console make its debut appearance, Wayne Barker Managing Director said this; “it was hard to tell any difference between the two consoles and I was amazed at how well the Pro2 worked on monitors over the event”. We also supplied TFM-450’s as a wedge monitor.

W E Audio were commissioned by Bournemouth Council to provide the public address and entertainment systems for their 2011 Air Festival held on the beach and cliff tops around the town itself – the largest air festival in Europe attracting 1.4 million spectators over the four day period.


Installing over 500 horn loudspeakers on the beach front and cliff top spectator areas was a challenge for the W E Audio team as the weather on build up days became wetter and wetter culminating on Friday with a fortnight's worth of rain falling in just 30 minutes. However the team completed rigging the system on time and the show went ahead with no hitches.


Alongside the public address system were two stage systems supplied with Turbosound TQ systems that ran a variety of acts during the festival. Once again W E Audio provided an event with comprehensive audio solutions for their entire festival with a successful outcome for the organisers and public alike.
