Firehouse Productions, which has a reputation of excellence in providing sound for some of the music’s biggest acts including Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, as well as major television and live events such as Live Earth and the MTV VMAs, has announced that it will purchase 100 Crown Audio I-Tech 12000HD amplifiers for its tour sound projects.
“Firehouse is a clear leader in the live sound industry. They have been a long time user of Crown and we have confidence I-Tech HD will be a major asset to their business for years to come. We value long-term relationships with industry leaders such as Firehouse and seeing them choose I-Tech HD is a validation of the efforts of our team to produce the best amplifier in the world,” stated Brian Divine, marketing director for tour sound at Crown.
“We are proud to be a long time user of Crown because of the consistent support we have received from them over the years. Knowing they are 100 percent behind us was a key reason for us to make the move to I-Tech HD,” stated Mark Dittmar, lead sound and integration engineer for Firehouse Productions. “So far, working with this amplifier for just a short period of time, I must say the sound is stunning. The sound quality and power have really shocked us.”
I-Tech HD features a new user-inspired DSP engine co-developed with BSS called OMNIDRIVEHD which features Linear Phase FIR filters that offer unrivaled crossover performance for sonically pure tunings.
The OMNIDRIVEHD processing engine also features an innovative new suite of limiters called LevelMAX. Harman HiQnet System Architect mirrors the typical browser navigation interface to provide tour sound and contracting professionals with a familiar interface to access a host of power configuration and control functions.
