    Romance wasn’t the only thing in the air this past Valentine’s Day weekend; so was an L-Acoustics K2 loudspeaker system flown at Hollywood, Florida’s Hard Rock Live for three sold-out concerts by Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli. Andrea Taglia, who has served as Bocelli’s FOH engineer for nearly nine years, specified the system, which was deployed by PRG. A longtime fan of L-Acoustics’ K1, Taglia also recently used a similar K2 system design for a series of sold-out US arena shows… View this post

    Paradiso, arguably Netherland’s most famous live venue, recently upgraded their sound reinforcement system with an Adamson Energia PA. Located in a converted former church building, the city opened its doors in 1968 as a publicly subsidized entertainment center. As time passed the venue has evolved into what it is today – a pop podium, club and cultural center in one. The main hall has retained much of its church look with an abundance of wood, pillars, and a high 60-foot… View this post

    Two nearly identical venues have become the first theatres in Canada to be equipped with the Meyer Sound LYON linear sound reinforcement systems: Edmonton’s Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium (NAJA) and Calgary’s Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium (SAJA). Both long-time Meyer Sound users since 1983, the 2,538-seat auditoriums selected LYON as they looked to upgrade from their trusty M2D line array loudspeakers, a decision made jointly by Mark Belkie and Paul Schmitz, technical coordinators for audio at SAJA and NAJA, respectively. “In… View this post

    D.A.S. Audio launches the new Event M210A, a three-way stage monitor in a double 10-inch, dual-band configuration. The dual-band configuration permits the twin 10-inch loudspeakers to work in tandem for maximum power at low frequencies. Above the low frequency range, the advanced digital signal processing allows the 10-inch speakers to operate independently in specific frequency ranges, eliminating off-axis interference between the drivers to maintain optimal polar and frequency response characteristics throughout the low and low-mid operating ranges. The D.A.S. loudspeaker… View this post

    Ike Zimbel 02/17/15 04:32 PM,
    One of the main causes of RF (radio frequency) interference is intermodulation products created by our own wireless equipment. In this piece, I will outline some of the common setup and handling errors that contribute to this problem. First up is increased noise floor and intermodulation (intermod or IM) products due to transmitters being in very close proximity. If you work with a single band and just put mics up on stands every day, you might not encounter this. But… View this post

    Shure wireless microphone systems, wired mics, and in-ear monitoring systems were a near-constant presence at last Sunday’s 57th Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles, which features 23 live musical performances. As usual, musicians were permitted to use their preferred microphones for their performances. Although artists brought their own custom earphones, all in-ear monitoring systems were Shure PSM1000, with 24 channels split between two stages, marking the fourth consecutive year that the Grammy production team chose Shure… View this post

    Century Baptist Church, located in Bismarck, North Dakota, recently installed an Eastern Acoustic Works (EAW) sound reinforcement system to enhance the music portions of their worship services. The church, seeking to provide both traditional and contemporary services, added a 600-seat room to the main sanctuary in 2007. At the time, a single mono loudspeaker cluster was installed. Unfortunately, the original system underperformed for their needs, making an upgrade necessary. The church leadership called upon the Bismarck-based offices of Tricorne Audio,… View this post
