Audio Visions, with offices located in Omaha, Nebraska and Minneapolis, Minnesota, recently joined the Adamson E-Series network with the purchase of Adamson’s core E15 line array rig. The new PA consists of 24 E15 and eight E12 line array enclosures.
“Audio quality, versatility, high output and dynamic range was at the top of the list of qualities a new line array system had to possess,” explains Elliot Nielsen, operations manager for Audio Visions. “Other considerations were rigging weight size and the ability to put more boxes into the same footprint – the way that it transports and rigs was a real bonus.”
Audio Visions works primarily providing sound reinforcement for fairs and festivals and corporate events held mainly in the Midwest. The company has been around for 30 years and received the Parnelli Hometown Hero Sound Company of the Year award in 2014.
“Throw distance is a key element when deploying sound systems at our events,” adds Nielsen. “The E15 shows superior throw distance and accuracy in the far field with pattern control and consistency across the frequency spectrum. The phase response and coherency in the horizontal and vertical planes is very good, potentially unrivaled.”
Nielsen also notes that the box design was another point in Adamson’s favor. “An E15 gets the job done with 6 components and is housed in a well-designed light-weight enclosure that’s attractive but not ‘gimmicky’.”
“We value the ‘family’ feel of the Adamson partnership and how supportive their team has already been from a technical aspect and a sales/business standpoint,” Nielsen concludes. “This is the next step for our company that will allow us to expand our inventory and horizons. It’s going to be a great season.”
