For a tour stop on the current Gary Allan concert tour at the American Music Venue in Lancaster, PA, Bauder Audio of Horsham, PA supplied NEXO GEO S12 line arrays. The tour is also carrying a Yamaha PM5000 console, supplied by Sound Image of Nashville.

Specifically, the system included 24 NEXO GEO S12s over eight RS18 Ray Subs were all powered and processed with NXAMP4X4 amplifiers.

“Besides the fact that the GEO S12 sounds great, it is easy to set up which makes for a quick load in,” states Bauder Audio systems engineer Tom Hogle. “NEXO continues to manufacturer studio monitors for large venues,” adds Chris “Sully” Sullivan, front of house engineer for the tour.

Monitor engineer Jason Spence specified the PM5000 console for the tour. “We had options and, in fact, listened to other consoles,” Spence notes. “However, after listening to the 5K, Gary and the band chose to go analog. The production requirements did not necessitate a digital mixer so we went with the PM5000.”
