Lake Forest, Illinois-based T.C. Furlong recently added a self-powered Meyer Sound MICA line array loudspeaker system to sharpen its competitive edge in the event rental market.
The MICA integrates smoothly with T.C. Furlong’s other Meyer Sound systems, including the M’elodie line array loudspeakers, and has equipped the 36-year-old audio provider with a new range of tools for the steady flow of projects that require high-quality sound reinforcement.
The company’s success story can be traced back to owner T.C. Furlong’s vision to grow the business by establishing long-term customer relationships with high-quality tools and comprehensive support services, and less on marketing and sales to convert new customers.
“We take a full system approach with our projects and make sure that we’re supplying customers with the right tool for the job,” says Furlong. “Meyer Sound systems are reliable, easy to work with, and above all, they sound great.”
As observed by Furlong, A/V projects have persisted despite the economic slowdown, and so has the need for top-rate audio support. Combining superior sound with the self-powered advantages of reliability and ease of reconfiguration, the new MICA system has been kept busy since delivery.
“The MICA has now been deployed at the commencement ceremony at Northwestern University and a major U.S. summer festival,” says Furlong. “And like other Meyer Sound products, the MICA is consistent from box to box, and has excellent vocal intelligibility.”
With the recent purchase of 20 MICA line array loudspeakers, eight 700-HP subwoofers, as well as additional processors for the Galileo loudspeaker management system and MG-MICA QuickFly rigging tools, T.C. Furlong now has an expansive Meyer Sound inventory, which also includes UPJunior and UPJ-1P VariO loudspeakers, UPA-1P, UPM-1P, MSL-4, CQ-1, CQ-2, DS-4P, and MM-4 loudspeakers, USW-1P and 650-P subwoofers, and UM-1P and MJF-212A stage monitors.
“Meyer Sound has been right there for us every step of the way, with great products and fantastic customer service as well as superb education and optimization tools like MAPP Online Pro (acoustical prediction program) and SIM 3 (audio analyzer),” adds Furlong. “We attribute a large part of our success to these very things.”
