Meeting Services Inc. Elects JBL VERTEC® Line Arrays For Appearance By Vice President Joe Biden At Super Carrier USS Ronald Reagan

jbl_biden.jpgVice President Joe Biden visited the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier at the ship’s berth on Coronado Island, California and addressed 1,500 of its crew members to thank them for their service as they prepared for re-deployment. Meeting Services Inc. of San Diego supplied the live audio system, which featured JBL VERTEC line arrays, VRX compact constant-curvature loudspeakers and SRX stage monitors.

The USS Ronald Reagan is a Nimitz-class nuclear powered super carrier, nearly as long as the Empire State Building is tall. The warship recently completed a successful deployment, which included humanitarian assistance in the Philippines and combat operations in Afghanistan. In his address at the ship, Vice President Biden commended the sailors on the USS Ronal Reagan for their recent efforts, and also announced the temporary expansion of a military homeowners assistance program using $555 million in federal stimulus money. The program will help military families who are forced to sell their homes at a loss as a result of being relocated.

The main system supporting the outdoor event featured two line array stacks, each containing five JBL VERTEC VT4888 midsize line array elements mounted on 6-foot high scaffold towers flanking the audience. Behind the stage, Meeting Services supplied four JBL SRX712M monitors, while four JBL VRX932LA 12-inch, compact constant-curvature loudspeakers and four smaller VRX928LA with 8-inch loudspeakers served as front fill.

“The versatility of JBL’s entire line of loudspeakers enabled us to utilize models from multiple JBL product lines to assemble the ideal sound reinforcement system for Vice President Biden’s speech,? said Ken Freeman, Technical Director, Meeting Services Inc. “In high-profile events with a strong media focus such as this, reliability is every bit as important as quality, and JBL continues to consistently perform at a high level for a variety of live events and permanent installations.?
