Visual Formula Adds Up L-ACOUSTICS

visual_formula_b-live_rig.jpgMIAMI – April 2009 — Visual Formula, LLC of Miami reports that it has now expanded its inventory of L-ACOUSTICS loudspeakers to 24 KUDO elements, 18 SB28 subs and 18 LA8 amplified controllers, augmented by eight 112P powered enclosures and ten 115XT HiQ wedges.

The company purchased its initial quantity of KUDO, SB28 and LA8 for its live production division nearly a year ago, at which point the rig was immediately deployed on a number of large-scale events, including a BBC Radio One live broadcast from South Beach for the Winter Music Conference and the kickoff of the global BACARDI B-LIVE tour at Bayfront Park Amphitheater.

“We flew nine KUDO per side as the main PA for B-LIVE, then actually supplemented the rig with eight V-DOSC plus three dV-DOSC per side that we rented to cover the big esplanade and gardens to the far sides,” notes Visual Formula CEO Nick Assunto. “As expected, the KUDO had terrific headroom and sounded extremely clean, but the thing that impressed me the most was the SB28. The SPL that those subs can produce is amazing! When we were setting up for this event, we put a cluster of eight SB28 in the center and then positioned ten SB218 subs on each side — so 20 in total. And we could simply not believe how much more pressure the SB28 subs were able to deliver over their predecessors.”

img_7442n.jpgAssunto also points out that the SB28 wasn’t the only L-ACOUSTICS product turning heads at WMC and B-LIVE. “It never used to be very common for DJs to request a particular rig, but now some of the world’s top DJs are specifically asking for L-ACOUSTICS on their riders. For example, Tiesto, who consistently ranks as the world’s number one DJ, wants L-ACOUSTICS monitors for all his gigs. So our powered 112P coaxial monitors make guys like that very happy.”

Highly versatile, the 112P can just as easily serve as a monitor, fill or delay speaker, or small FOH system that can be mated with a self-powered SB15P subwoofer. “Aside from using the 112P as a monitor for all of the DJs at B-LIVE, we also used a number of them as fill speakers for the 700 guests in the VIP and VVIP areas, and they were a perfect complement to the KUDO and V-DOSC rig addressing the main crowd of 8,000.”

visual_formula_b-live_stage.jpgA common thread between the tiny 112P and much larger KUDO enclosure is that they are both well suited for a variety of different environments and tasks. “We used KUDO as delay speakers for a big concert with Marc Anthony and Alejandro Fernandez at Miami Arena a few months ago, and they were great. The adjustable louvers make them so useful for so many applications, not to mention that their higher low-end output means that we have to use fewer subs,” Assunto adds.

Having spent more than 20 years in the live production business working with the likes of Shakira, Guns N’ Roses, Iron Maiden and Foreigner, as well as on productions like the annual Ultramusic Festival, Assunto knows a good thing when he hears it. “I’ve trusted L-ACOUSTICS for many years now, and am happy to be increasing my inventory. Now we’re anxiously looking forward to the opportunity to use our KUDO with some of L-ACOUSTICS’ new K1 systems in a stadium setting. That will be the ultimate level of production!”

Now onboard with L-ACOUSTICS’ new Rental Network, Visual Formula provides live production services throughout North, Central and South America, as well as design and installation services. For more information, log on to: www.visualformula.com
