G3 Events Join The Ever-Expanding UK Outline Family
Based in Chester, in England’s north-west, G3 Events specialise in corporate events, ranging from team building to AV and production. Far from being ‘…just the AV guys…’, G3 focus on helping and supporting their clients in any way possible, right through the event, with the company motto: ‘Ease, Value, Trust’. They stock a wide range of equipment from desktop projectors up to a giant LED wall and have recently added a suite of Outline products to their audio inventory.
Joe Cross is Operations Manager for G3 Events and he takes up the story:
“We noticed we were hiring a lot to do the larger conferences, so it made sense to look at adding suitable equipment to our own stock. Outline were recommended and a colleague put me in touch with James (Lawford of CUK Audio) and he has been great. Really helpful with all of our questions, arranged the demos for us and happily came in to train the team on the setup. He’s a genuine guy that obviously loves what he’s doing!”
G3’s initial purchase comprises eight Outline Vegas 12 CX full-range, co-axial passive loudspeakers and two Outline SUB 118 subwoofers, powered by two Powersoft T604 DSP+Dante amplifiers. Everything can be run as a single system or split into two as needs dictate, the key for the company being the ease with which the iterations of the equipment can be deployed by using snapshots or preset recall from the amplifier’s front panel. Further, the amplifiers having Outline presets on board means that the speakers are safe and will prove extremely reliable, a vital asset in corporate work. Having access to Outline’s Open Array 3D simulation software to verify and design speaker systems for specific rooms is also a major bonus.
James Lawford added, “G3 is a well-established company, but their AV equipment requirements have only recently increased, hence their investment with us. I think they were a little shocked when they realised what good value Outline products represent, as their performance matches and even exceeds other top-name loudspeakers they have rented in the past.”
Joe concludes, “As soon as the team heard the speakers they loved them, they seem really well built with handles in very convenient places to carry and lift up onto a speaker stand. Being used in a corporate environment they also need to look good as well as sound good and they tick all the boxes.”
