Mowzz Entertainment purchases Hyderabad’s first d&b Audiotechnik V-Series rig


Mowzz Entertainment has recently reinforced its existing inventory with a comprehensive audio rig- V series from d&b Audiotechnik. The purchase encompassed a total of twelve units of the V8 and four units of the V12 line array elements, along with four units of the V-Subs cardioid arrayable subwoofers and six units of the B22 subwoofers, all powered by the D80 amplifiers.

Zakir Alladin director of Mowzz Entertainment spoke about the factors that prompted him to purchase the d&b Audiotechnik V-Series rig and shares, “I knew from the onset that we needed a brand whose products are genuinely European, and one that is a globally accepted standard (on-tech riders) by artists, musicians and performers across the board. With just a few good options available, the one that intrigued me the most was the d&b Audiotechnik.

After quite a bit of research I decided to fly down to the d&b company’s manufacturing site in Germany to have a better understanding of the brand, and what I witnessed really impressed me. The visit really put me at ease as I knew for sure that my investment was in good hands and what remained then was simply choosing the right series of products that would perfectly fit our company’s necessities. Once back in India, we took things further with Ansata, who are the official distribution partners for d&b Audiotechnik in India. Leslie, Neil and the entire team at Ansata left no stone unturned in helping us finalize on the V-Series rig. So basically we had the perfect product in the form of the d&b Audiotechnik V-Series and the perfect support and service partner in the form of Ansata. That in itself is an unbeatable combination – All of us at Mowzz Entertainment are extremely pleased with our new purchase!” exclaimed Zakir.


Mowzz Entertainment purchased their new d&b Audiotechnik V-Series rig from Ansata preceded by a training in the workflow of the system, Arraycalc system design software and R1 remote control software, which was conducted by Neil Lean and Jacob Payyapilli from team Ansata. Team Ansata also conducted a 1 day revision on the system and software nuances soon after the purchase took place, and Zak shares that this extensive exercise of training sessions is what helped prepare the sound engineers of Mowzz Entertainment to explore deeper working potential of the V-Series and improve the team’s efficiency and productivity.

As Zak comments, “Everyone in the team is challenging the limits of great sound and that’s such a fantastic thing because every show we do now with the system just keeps getting better and better with time. A word of thanks to Neil in particular for this – he is genuinely one of the best trainers in this vocation that I’ve come across and it is because of his great training and excellent approach that our team members at Mowzz Entertainment have transitioned so smoothly into the system.”

Prakash Savio, partner at Mowzz Entertainment shared his experiential feedback about the new system and commented, “The system being efficient, reliable, easy to use and most importantly, high on performance value in terms of sound quality and power made it an obvious choice for us. The speakers are exemplary when you consider its output to size ratio – stupendous power, coupled with great voicing and unbelievably wide dispersion and coverage in a wonderfully compact frame. The proof of this lies in the awesome performance of the system at the Above & Beyond Concert in Hyderabad that we recently commissioned on 11th March 2017. The manager of the world renowned trio was genuinely impressed with the quality of sound and with the fact that the impact of the subs could be felt till the very end of the 130 feet long arena. Now speaking about the D80’s, it allows unrestricted control over the system be it power or processing which leads me to believe that it is more of a comprehensive management tool than just an amplifier. Plus, the arraycalc software makes tuning the system to absolute perfection an everyday possibility. Also, the manufacturers have ensured that rigging the system is not just super easy, but also absolutely flawless since the software prompts you the moment you’re going wrong with the rigging process.”

Leslie Lean, of Ansata shared, “We’re proud to welcome Mowzz Entertainment into the ever growing family of d&b Audiotechnik users in India. Rental companies like Mowzz Entertainment who have over 20 years of rich industry experience, truly understand the value of great technology and that’s what prompts visionary industry professionals like Zak to associate with d&b Audiotechnik. With the purchase of their new V-series system, Mowzz Entertainment have introduced the market in Hyderabad to a new breed of superior quality sound and have placed themselves as an undisputed leader in delivering niche live audio solutions.”

Culminating his thoughts, Zak shared his plans for adding more units of the loudspeakers and said, “The idea was to build on this system; go bigger and finally have a 36 box rig and we achieved it! This gives us a crucial competitive edge in having a truly encyclopedic system that can be deployed for a vast range of shows sans quantum. And that’s priceless!”
