As the first company in the German market, Lichtwerk Veranstaltungstechnik GmbH
from Berlin invested in the new LR18 pro-ribbon line array system from the Dutch
premium manufacturer Alcons Audio in early January 2017.
The full-service company founded in 1986 with a focus on trade fairs and industrial
events has long trusted Alcons products and considered the investment in the larger
line array system LR18 as the logical next step. A total of 18 LR18 pro-ribbon
systems are now available at Lichtwerk.
"I already knew the LR18-concept from the Prolight + Sound 2016 and was
immediately convinced," says Götz Berge, one of the two managing directors of
Lichtwerk. "With the new line array system, we have a fantastic tool for our work
and are looking forward to providing the best sound for our customers." The LR18
system from Lichtwerk recently experienced its "maiden trip" at the Special
Olympics In Willingen at an open air event in the snow in front of 3,500 guests.
The LR18 features Alcons' multiple-patented pro-ribbon driver technology for mid-
range and high-frequency frequencies, delivering an ultra-fast response with up to
90% less distortion. The LR18 offers a completely intuitive linear reproduction with
excellent speech intelligibility and uncompressed, identical sound balance at every
sound pressure level. It is the latest proof of Alcons' typical quality, which
convinced Lichtwerk already 14 years ago.
The current investment in the LR18 system is therefore also an expression of the
long and exciting history of the companies Lichtwerk Veranstaltungstechnik and
Simon Schmitt, second managing director of Lichtwerk, adds: "The Alcons
technology is simply convincing. Alcons offers the only true line array systems
because they are real line source systems and no point source systems - and
everyone can hear that! Alcons line arrays - be it LR16 or LR18 - are superior in
sound to most systems. With Alcons, you can also experience unexpected successes
in environments which are generally considered not to be suitable for amplification.
That is why Alcons is the right choice for us because our customers often provide us
with difficult tasks. "
Lichtwerk has won numerous tenders because it was possible to achieve a speech-
intelligibility that was previously not considered possible. "It clearly speaks for the
system, if one can create a good sound even in difficult rooms," concludes Schmitt.
"For Alcons products, brilliance and speech intelligibility are guaranteed - even
without EQ-ing. In simple rooms, you can work with a less good system, but Alcons
plays out his superiority precisely in situations where nothing seems to work. We
are looking forward to many new challenges and look forward to this thanks to
