Camarillo, CA-based Delicate Productions, one of North America’s leading production companies, recently added 12 VUE Audiotechnik boxes to its lineup, including eight VUE model a-8 full-range loudspeakers as well as four VUE model as-115 subwoofers.
All 12 cabinets were custom painted in satin white, as requested.
Delicate provides audio, lighting, and multimedia services for some of the world’s most recognizable clients, including names like The Killers, Silver Sun Pickups and Foo Fighters.
“I’d been hearing a lot of buzz about this new loudspeaker company that was a joint venture between the founders of EAW and Apogee Sound,” explains Jason Alt, president of Delicate president. “After a quick phone discussion, VUE invited us to a demo they were conducting near our headquarters here in Camarillo.
“We were immediately impressed with the build quality, as well as the forward, warm voicing that was exceptionally consistent throughout the range.”
Alt and the team recognized that the VUE loudspeakers would be ideal for a series of private VIP events taking place throughout October as part of L.A.‘s Fashion Week. The one catch was that the loudspeakers needed to be white.
“As a new company, I wasn’t sure they’d be willing to take on a custom job so soon,” says Alt. “Not only did they agree without hesitating, but I had the speakers in my warehouse within two weeks.”
Since taking delivery in late September, Delicate has successfully deployed the VUE systems in a variety of environments at more than a dozen events for customers ranging from Chanel (Chanel Cruse-produced by Bounce Event Marketing) to the Hammer Museum (a Mitie Tucker Event Production).
“The VUE speakers simply sounded fantastic,” states engineer Noel Edwards, who was among the first to use the new speakers for the Hammer Museum Gala. “They provided exactly the presence I needed, and best of all, they required almost no EQ. They just sounded so nice and warm right out of the box.”
For Delicate account manager Meegan Holmes, the addition of the VUE speakers couldn’t be more welcome. “Over the years, many of our clients have requested white speakers. It’s so wonderful to be able to deliver a white speaker that also meets our high standards for audio reproduction.”
