OMNISON BUILDS UP NEXO ARTILLERY TO OVER 90 CABINETS

omnison-2009-034.jpgMontreal, Canada⎯In just two years as a NEXO dealer, Omnison (Montreal) has increased their inventory of NEXO speaker cabinets to over 90 including GEO S, GEO D, GEO Subs, CD12s, RS15s, LS1200s and LS400s, PS8s and 15s along with NEXO 4×4 and 4×1 amplifiers. The company also has a stock of Yamaha digital audio consoles. Omnison offers a wide range of services, from equipment rentals to full production, and in years past, have provided full production for events such as Formula One, the Montreal White Party held in April at the Montreal Palais des Congres, where the company supplied a NEXO GEO D line array, and for the second year, provided support to Canada Day (July 1) at the Old Port in Montreal.

“We had been using custom speaker boxes for many years,? states Francis Giguere, technical director for Omnison. “The boxes were quite heavy (3,000 lbs.) with a very old rigging system, so we decided it was time to update our speaker offerings. We held a shoot out with all major PA companies and held listening tests under the worst conditions possible. We decided if the system could sound good under extreme circumstances, it would sound good anywhere. Our first purchase was a NEXO GEO S8 system consisting of 16 cabinets, 2 CD12s and four GEO subs, for its size and quality of sound and that the system only requires a two-man rigging setup.?

Claude Lague, owner of Omnison noted that another reason they continue to purchase more NEXO products is the dealer-networking component and the Yamaha support they receive. “We (the dealers) work together assisting each other when additional boxes may be needed for a particular situation, and with Yamaha’s support, we feel secure if technical assistance is required,? Lague says.

A stage was built out over water, ground supported, with experienced divers running fiber optic cable under water out to the performance area.omnison-canada-day-2009-nexo-geo-d.jpg

Situated along the St-Lawrence River in Old Montreal, the Old Port of Montreal has been the social, economic and cultural soul of Montreal ever since the French fur traders used it as a trading post in 1611. Over 100,000 people attended Canada Day this year.
