NEXO LINE ARRAY SYMPOSIUM HELD AT CERRITOS CENTER

nexo-dealers-and-end-users-at-ycas-hq.jpgBUENA PARK, Calif.─Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. (YCAS) pulled out all stops when it brought key dealers, contractors and end users to the Cerritos Performing Arts Center for two-day demonstrations of NEXO line arrays including GEO T, GEO D, GEO S8 and the new GEO S12 Series. The demonstrations were held in mid-November at the performing arts venue located in Cerritos, California. “Speakers were powered by the new Yamaha and NEXO NXAmp as well as Yamaha Tn amplifiers and also included a preview of the new Yamaha SB168-ES Stage Box.

The first day, attendees were given a formal presentation with hands-on demonstrations at the YCAS training facility in Buena Park on the complete NEXO product line and GEO Soft line array calculator. The second day consisted of listening evaluations at the Cerritos Performing Arts Center where dealers, contractors and end users could hear the various models in a real-world software to hardware application and get a feel for ease of set up in various scenarios.

“All of the boxes were put together by YCAS staff and performed well,? states Jack Hayback, technical audio director for the Cerritos Center. The performing arts center recently installed a NEXO GEO D system. “Certain boxes work better for different applications, and every person I spoke with was impressed.? The Cerritos house NEXO GEO D system was displayed in the most offstage position. On stage, Yamaha ground stacked an Alpha E system and flew GEO Ts, S12s and S8s, which YCAS brought in for demonstration purposes. “There are some really great things that NEXO and Yamaha are doing together like the new GEO S12 speaker which is a passive box and sounds incredible,? says Hayback.

“When we began to distribute the NEXO line years ago, we knew that the only way people could decide what NEXO system would be best for their application was if we could demonstrate in a real world environment how they sound which is why we took them on regional road shows,? states Albert Cardenas, acoustic systems manager. “Now with the recent acquisition of NEXO France by Yamaha Corporation Japan, we are able to accelerate the demo process by adding more regional demonstrations as well as visits to our speaker demo room in Buena Park and to theaters, like Cerritos, that have systems installed.?
