Emily Event Hall in Lviv, which is the first venue in Ukraine with an L-Acoustics K3 audio system, is hosting charity concerts and helping to collect funds to support the war effort.

Pioneering Ukrainian concert hall stays open amid war

A concert hall in Ukraine, which is home to the country’s first L-Acoustics K3 audio system, is continuing to host events despite the war.

Emily Resort, in Lviv, has remained open since the Russian invasion started, hosting and providing support to refugees. The resort’s flagship space, Emily Event Hall, has hosted charity concerts and helped to collect funds to support the Ukrainian war effort.

When K3, L-Acoustics’ smallest full-range line-source system became available, the 1,500sq m venue was the first in Ukraine to purchase it. L-Acoustics distributor RealMusic, which installed the system, recommended the K3 because of its compact size and versatility.

The design comprises left and right hangs of six K3 per side. Using L-Acoustics’ Soundvision software, RealMusic’s integration team set the horizontal angle of the three upper K3 cabinets to 70° with Panflex, helping to reduce unnecessary reflections from the side walls and increasing the long-throw ability of the arrays.

The three lower K3 cabinets are set at 110°, ensuring wider coverage of the centre of the venue. Two A15 Wide, also set at 110°, are deployed as a centre hang, with six KS28 subs ensuring solid coverage in the low-frequency range. Two left/right hangs of two A10 Focus and one A10 Wide provide delay coverage. The entire system is powered by four LA12X and one LA4X amplified controller. A P1 Processor is responsible for speaker management, while an LS10 is used as an AVB switch.

Pavlo Mineiev, an L-Acoustics certified system designer at RealMusic, said: “The system is incredibly versatile and can accommodate anything from art exhibitions to conferences, presentations, and live music events. The matrix processor and M1 measurement platform allow for up to three guest mixing consoles simultaneously, and connections via AVB with full analogue redundancy ensure smooth and uninterrupted operation.”

Volodymyr Golovan, head of RealMusic’s pro-audio and system integrations department, said: “This is truly a landmark project for Ukraine – one that will be difficult to match in terms of its level of technical equipment.”
