Adamson Systems Engineering and Seesound, the company’s exclusive Spanish distributor, has welcomed SBA Radical Sound to the Adamson Network as the latest E-Series rental partner in Spain.

“We decided to invest in Adamson’s E-Series ahead of a very busy festival season,” said SBA CEO Ramón Fernández: “We needed a system that sounds great, rigs easily, and will satisfy the rider requirements of the biggest touring acts, no questions asked. The E-Series checked every box, and having Adamson and Seesound behind us for support means we can confidently service even the most demanding applications.”

SBA’s new E-Series system is comprised of 24 Adamson E15 three-way, true line source enclosures along with a complement of 16 Adamson E219 subwoofers, and the company didn’t waste any time getting it out for some major events.

SBA was supported by COBRA sound light and ZL Production and supplied the main stage system for the first-ever O Son do Camino festival in Santiago de Compostela on the west coast of Spain. The festival presented headliners like The Killers, Martin Garrix, Lenny Kravitz, and Jamiroquai for a daily crowd of approximately 30,000 fans this summer. That system was comprised of 18 Adamson E15s per side for the main arrays and eight Adamson E15s per side for the side arrays. The sub-configuration featured 12 Adamson E219s per side arranged in two end-fire cardioid stacks of three, plus six Adamson E219s as centre subs in FBF cardioid mode. Six clusters of 3 compact S10 two-way, full range cabinets lined the lip of the stage for front fills.

Since then, SBA’s E-Series system has also featured at high-profile events like Resurrection Fest in Viveiro, where it supported major rock acts like KISS, Megadeth, and Scorpions on the main stage for a daily crowd of 30,000 fans. SBA is a subsidiary of Grupo Area 51, a Madrid-based multimedia firm that, in addition, to live event production, specialises in: AV installations; recording, mixing, and post-production; music composition; and sound design for a wide range of applications in Spain and throughout the European Union.

“SBA Radical Sound has a great reputation as a production technologies supplier for live events, and we’re very happy to be working closely with them as the latest Adamson E-Series partner in Spain,” commented SeeSound Founder and President Nacho Alberdi. “We look forward to supporting SBA as they continue their impressive growth by providing major tours and festivals with state-of-the-art technologies and an experienced team of professionals for a one-of-a-kind live experience.”
