KV2 for "GHOST: The Musical" Berlin


Based on the hugely successful 1990 film of the same name, "GHOST: The Musical" thrilled audiences nightly from December 2017 until October 2018 at the Theater des Westens in Berlin (Germany).

The musical tells a dramatic and exciting story about the power of true love. Molly and Sam are the perfect couple and immortally in love. But one evening the unbelievable happens: Sam is shot dead during a robbery. While Molly grieves for him, Sam wanders around as a good ghost and finds out that Molly too is in danger of her life. But as a ghost he is neither seen by the living, nor can he intervene in the events. Through the medium of Oda Mae he tries to stand in the way of fate...

International musical productions place the highest demands on crew and technology. Sound Designer Andreas Hammerich from Stage Entertainment GmbH in Hamburg chose KV2 Audio for this production. Achieving the clearest possible live vocal sound reproduction over prominent pop music was the primary challenge. "The results in terms of vocal presence and the richness of detail that can be achieved with KV2 loudspeakers for musical productions like these are absolutely unequalled in my opinion", states Andreas.

The main sound system consists of just two SL412s per side with two SL2.15 subwoofers. Two EX12 and four VHD2.18J double-18" centre subwoofers were installed as centres and down-fills.

Two EX26s served as in-fills - extending the horizontal coverage of the main PA system - and six EX6s served as outfills for the side rank areas. Six ESD5 front fills were used for the first rows of seats. These were invisibly integrated into the edge of the stage. Another six ESD5s were also used as delay lines under the balcony. The stage monitoring was done with eight ESD6 and three ESM26.

System setup:

The delay lines for the upper three tiers as well as the surround system are part of the permanent installation of the house.
