The Diamond Jubilee River Pageant

Thames Audio supply Custom Audio Systems for the Diamond Jubilee River Pagent.

Thames Audio have supplied a pioneering Funktion One long throw speaker system as part of their Audio system for the Diamond Jubilee River Pageant.

The New MST10’s were deployed as part of a full control and speaker package on three of the Music Herald Barges. They formed part of the enormous flotilla, on Sunday 3rd June 2012, attended by Her Majesty The Queen, several other members of The Royal Family and over 1 million spectators on the river banks.

Full system tests and rehearsals took place on The River Thames earlier in the year. They were attended by Funktion One’s Tony Andrews and John Newsham, who were on hand to fine tune the system settings and see how their latest speaker design performed in use. Tony & Andrew also provided their support on the day of the event.

Despite heavy rain and strong winds, the Funktion One PA provided excellent quality and coverage of the river banks. The crew, however, got quite wet and cold.
