    Paul McCartney’s Out There tour recently landed in the Arena di Verona, the historic amphitheatre in Verona, Italy that has provided entertainment spectacles for thousands of years. Touring logistics meant that McCartney’s regular PA system could not make the Verona date, so local supplier Amandla Productions stepped in to provide a Martin Audio MLA system, supported by All Access, the owners of Italy’s largest MLA rig. McCartney’s long-standing FOH engineer Paul “Pab” Boothroyd was at the helm for the show,… View this story

    Located just west of Crandon, Wisconsin, the Crandon International Off-Road Raceway hosts a variety of motor races, R/C races, concerts, and other entertainment throughout the summer season. The venue’s audio system, which consisted of traditional public address paging horns, had difficulty overcoming the track’s noise levels and it had deteriorated over the years from exposure to Wisconsin weather. In 2012, the raceway contacted Kevin Mullins of Arrow AV Group in Appleton, Wisconsin for a quote on a new system. Mullins… View this story

    Next-proaudio of Portugal has introduced the LA212X, a 3-way, horn-loaded, axially symmetric line array element providing 90-degree horizontal constant dispersion control.

The bass section makes use of two 12-inch neodymium woofers with 3-inch voice coils that are strategically placed on either side of the speaker in a dipolar horn arrangement. The horn mouths are horizontally separated by a “tuned” distance that… View this story
