For the fifth year in a row, Peavey Versarray line arrays and Crest Audio power amplifiers are being utilized for sound reinforcement on the Rockstar Mayhem Festival.
“We have used the Peavey Versarray line array since we debuted the Jägermeister Mobile Stage in 2007, and we couldn’t be happier with the performance and sound quality,” says Jack Carson, director of event marketing at Jägermeister. “The Rockstar Mayhem Festival has grown even bigger this year, so we’re bringing an even bigger and louder Versarray sound system to the fans.”
For the 2012 Rockstar Mayhem Festival, the Jägermeister Mobile Stage is using twin arrays of 10 Versarray 212 enclosures per side instead of eight per side, plus 16 Versarray 218 subwoofers.
Each Versarray 212 enclosure is outfitted with two 12-inch Black Widow woofers, four planar ribbon drivers and 10 midrange drivers. The proprietary ribbon drivers are mounted to a manifold line source that works with the specially designed midrange drivers to create a high-energy field that enables critically damped operation with immediate transient response.
The Versarray line-array system is managed by Peavey Architectural Acoustics Digitool processors and powered by 24 Crest Audio Pro 9200 amplifiers and six Pro 8200 amps. A combination of six Crest Audio Pro 9200, four Pro 8200 and four Pro 7200 amps provide power for the stage’s Peavey QW monitor rig.
“The Peavey Versarray 212 is a big leap forward for sound reinforcement technology,” states Dave Summers, road and production manager for the Jägermeister Mobile Stage. “It’s the ideal system for modern touring situations, where performance and efficiency are matters of necessity.”
Peavey 6505 Series guitar amplifier endorsers The Devil Wears Prada, Asking Alexandria, Whitechapel and Upon a Burning Body are performing on the 2012 Rockstar Mayhem Festival tour.
