Colisée de Roubaix, France

The stunning Colisée de Roubaix in Roubaix, France, has undergone many interior transformations in its near-century of operations, most recently, the installation of an Adamson S-Series loudspeaker system in its 1,700-seat main theatre.

The system’s scalable design can transform from a left-right array configuration with six Adamson S10 two-way, full range cabinets to left-center-right arrays of four S10s each. Four ground-stacked S119 subwoofers per side handle low end for the main level. Arrays of four S10s cover the balcony, with two flown S119s in a cardioid configuration under the catwalk. Under the balcony are three clusters of four Adamson PC 5 two-way, coaxial loudspeakers, plus two Point 12s and two Point 115 subs per side in cardioid configuration. Rounding out the system are Point 8s as lip fills.

“We’ve been very impressed with Adamson products, including the compact-yet-powerful S-Series, which checked all the boxes for the Colisée de Roubaix,” says Bruno Brizulier, technical director at integrator VS Scene, which designed the system. “We love the system and results, and were very pleased with our experience with DV2, Adamson’s French distributor, whose expertise and support has been outstanding from the start.”
