By PSW Staff • October 23, 2009 On-Stage Rentals staffers Matt Pavey, Shawn Huartson, Jeremy Marquez, and Marlo Gonzalez (from left to right) with one of their new D.A.S. Audio Aero 38A line arrays. Azusa, CA-based On-Stage Rentals, which provides audio and backline services for national and regional touring acts as well as tour support and production, recently took delivery of 24 D.A.S. Audio Aero 38A line array elements and eight Compact 218 Sub 2K subwoofers. The transaction dramatically expands On Stage Rentals’ D.A.S. equipment inventory and enables the company to better address a variety of projects. The D.A.S. Audio Aero 38A is a self-powered, three-way, medium format line array module incorporating twin 12-inch woofers for LF (low frequency) production, dual 10-inch transducers for the midrange, and a single large format compression driver for HF (high frequency) reproduction. The loudspeaker is driven by a three-channel Class D power amplifier providing 1,000 watts to the LF section, 500 watts to the midrange, and 500 watts for the HF section. The D.A.S. Audio Compact 218 Sub 2K subwoofer is a high-performance, self-powered, vented subwoofer system employing one 1,000-watt Class D power amplifier for each of the system’s two 18-inch transducers, for a total of 2000 watts power. “Much of our success has a lot to do with the D.A.S. name,” states George Acuna, president of On-Stage Rentals. “We started with the Aero CA-28As and are now moving to a larger format to accommodate the requirements of our larger clients and artists. “As a medium format line array system, the Aero 38A is the perfect complement to our arsenal of CA-28A’s. Likewise, the purchase of the new Compact 218 Sub 2K subwoofers dramatically increases our subwoofer inventory.” “Like our Aero line array loudspeakers,” Phil Mata, operations manager, added, “our new Compact 218 Sub 2K subwoofers are self-powered. “The self-powered design of this equipment enables us to save on space in the truck as well as at the event. By not having to carry separate power amps, we transport less weight and don’t have to contend with amp racks at the job site. “The self-powered design of the equipment also streamlines cabling and makes for faster setup and tear down. We’ve successfully used our D.A.S. equipment with an impressive roster of artists, including Ice Cube, Ludacris, Kenny G, Brian McKnight, and Herbie Hancock.” On-Stage Rentals DAS Audio Comments Have something to say about this PSW content?
