A virtual press conference from Sound & Video Contractor


A combination of compact Electro-Voice line arrays kept sound focused and sightlines open at the recent Oregon Jamboree country music festival.

Taking place over the first weekend in August, this year‘s Oregon Jamboree featured headliners Dierks Bentley, Trisha Yearwood and Jo Dee Messina. For the past five years, Horne Audio, Inc., (Portland, Oregon) have used EV line array systems to great effect at the festival, and, in the spirit of continuous improvement, this year they tried something different with their sub deployment.

“Our client asked that we try an alternative to ground-stacked subs, to keep the low-end from overwhelming the seating areas directly in front of the stage,” says J. Peter Horne, “so we decided to fly two side-by-side arrays of six XLC215 subs per side, keeping the low-end off the ground alongside our main hangs of twelve XLC-DVX per side and side fill arrays of eight XLD281 per side.” In addition, HAI flew down-fill hangs of two XLD281 boxes under each main XLC array, and eight more XLC-DVX boxes on the delay tower.

“The coupling effect with the sub arrays worked very well,” adds Horne, “as it gave us the low end output we needed for this deep venue without blocking the view–six-deep sub arrays meant we were well clear of the deck–or focusing too much energy on the front rows. Using this combination of compact XLC and XLD arrays allows us to provide full coverage and plenty of power handling without the clumsy footprint or crowded sightlines. We upgraded our XLC127 boxes to the new DVX woofers for this season, so now the whole EV rig is loaded with DVX woofers and delivering incredible punch and clarity for the pound. The clients–and the audience in the front rows–were extremely happy with the results!”
