CPUT Sound System

Client: Cape Peninsula University of Technology (2007)

Camco Vortex - Towers of PowerWhen the Cape Peninsula University of Technology needed a PA system, Blue Cow had the solution. The Univeristy has a massive range of needs from small class room presentations to full blooded concerts in the university piazza. Using Nexo PS speaker systems as building blocks it was possible to build a system that can do it all.

For a small presentation two Nexo PS10 speakers can be used, for a concert the 8 PS10's serve as stage monitoring and the 8 Nexo PS15 speakers and 4 Nexo LS1200 Subwoofers provide enough boom to fill the campus. The system is driven by Camco and Lab Gruppen amplification built into Blue Cow custom amplifier racks.

Front of House mixing and outboard equipment included a Soundcraft GB4 mixer, dbx and TC Electronics processing and Shure wireless microphone systems. A DJ rig, intercom system and a comprehensive set of racks, stands, power distribution and cabling rounded off the package.

CPUT were delighted with the results at the system's first big outing on 3 September 2007. PA system commissioning was an exciting new challenge for the Blue Cow team that was met with characteristic precision and professionalism exceeding all client expectations.
