Taher Sound & Lights Bring Power To The People With JBL VERTEC® Line Arrays For Sonia Gandhi Event In India

jbl_soniagandhi.jpgNORTHRIDGE, California – In a historic application of JBL VERTEC® line arrays, Taher Sound & Lights recently provided the live sound reinforcement system for an appearance by Sonia Gandhi, President of India’s Congress political party, in the Anantapur district of the state of Andhra Pradesh. The event, which drew a crowd estimated at more than 750,000 people, was designed to generate support for the ruling Congress party in the upcoming state legislative assembly elections.

Taher Sound & Lights deployed a total of 24 loudspeaker arrays to cover a total area of 190 acres. The main scaffolding towers to support the arrays of VERTEC VT4889 large-format line array loudspeakers were set at a height of 12 meters (40 feet). JBL VRX and SRX loudspeaker systems were also in use along with Taher’s custom horn-loaded, 3-way systems. Numerous VRX932 arrays were used for supplemental fill speakers, with VRX and SRX systems in use as signal-delayed array locations. JBL 4890A Array Series loudspeakers and VRX915M stage monitors were also used for the event.

Zakir Hussain, Chief Engineer for Taher Sound & Lights, was responsible for the overall event sound design and mix engineering, assisted by colleagues Mr. Ayub, Mr. Mukaram, Mr. Kuddus, and Mr. Paresh. Mr. Anwar handled stage monitor duties, while Mr. Hyder was responsible for backstage duties. Mr. Wahed Ali served as production manager. “Having the contract to provide sound for such a big audience over a large area is a serious responsibility, and our company has a long history of successfully managing projects of this nature for our country’s government functions and political-party events,? noted Zakir Hussain. “Taher Sound & Lights acquired its first JBL VERTEC system in 2004 and we have been very proud to have it to help ensure our success on projects of this magnitude. Now, with JBL’s new V4 DSP presets, the system sounds fantastic.?

Syed Layaq Ali, Director of Taher Sound & Lights, recently increased his company’s stock holdings of VERTEC enclosures, adding another 12 VT4889 full-size line array elements and eight VT4880A Ultra Long Excursion arrayable subwoofers to the existing rental inventory.
