he Bose Professional DeltaQ ShowMatch line array loudspeaker system

Ensuring each performer’s music would be clearly heard by attendees, Delta Sound Spain the rental partner for Bose Professional, provided the festival with a ShowMatch system that consisted of 22 ShowMatch line array modules (11 per stage side.
6 x SMS118 subwoofers per side paired with 4 x ShowMatch SM5 loudspeaker modules across the stage lip; and two ground stacks made up of an SMS118 subwoofer and 2 x ShowMatch loudspeaker modules (an SM10 and SM20) as side fills.
Additionally, a Bose F1 Model 812 Flexible Array loudspeaker was employed for DJ monitors and a Bose S1 Pro Multi-Position PA system was positioned at front of house (FOH) as a talkback monitor.
After five days of interacting with and experiencing the ShowMatch system, FOH engineer Javi Vadillo stated, “The clarity and punch from the ShowMatch line array was unbelievable for a system of that size!”
