Sound Image, Wigwam Support Pharrell Williams Tour with Adamson Energia Arrays
|MANCHESTER, U.K. – Sound Image and Wigwam Acoustics supported Pharrell Williams’ Dear GIRL Tour with a full sound reinforcement system from Adamson Systems Engineering. Kyle Hamilton, FOH engineer, opted for Adamson Energia line arrays to support performances at major arenas during the tour, with 24 concerts in the U.K. and Europe last fall.

“They asked me what PA I preferred when we were preparing for the tour and I immediately chose Adamson — it’s the system I always wanted to tour with,” explains Hamilton. “I couldn’t let that type of opportunity go by, it was definitely Adamson.”
The main PA consists of left-right line arrays each made up of fifteen E15 and three E12 enclosures. Outfill is provided by two more line arrays, this time consisting of twelve E12s followed by four SpekTrix enclosures.
Low end is handled by twenty T21 subwoofers — eight subwoofers stacked under each array with four located in the center of the stage. Two more SpekTrix enclosures on top of the left-right sub stacks handle front fill duties.
“The E15 sounds exceptional — all of the nuances in the mid-range are extremely clear,” adds Hamilton. “I hear actual notation, not just a lot of rumbling. The clarity is incredible — it’s like being able to see everything in a picture. The Energia system has incredible depth.”
“And the T21 subs have a LOT of horsepower,” Hamilton continues. “I was amazed. Once I got them dialed in they were terrific and provided a very musical sounding low end.”
