JBL VRX Line Arrays Go To The Mat For Ricky’s Audio Corporation At WWE Events In Puerto Rico

Showcasing the power and light weight of JBL VRX Constant Curvature line array speakers, Ricky’s Audio Corporation provided the sound equipment and services for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) professional wrestling events in Arecibo and Ponce, Puerto Rico on September 5 and 6, 2009, respectively. The audio system for the events included powered VRX line arrays and dbx signal processing for system control.

Both WWE events featured matches with such WWE stars as the Undertaker, current WWE World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk, and WWE Unified Tag Team Champions Chris Jericho and Big Show. The September 5 event in Arecibo took place at the Manuel Petaca Iguina Coliseum, while the September 6 event in Ponce was held in the Juan Pachin Vicens Auditorium. Both venues have seating capacities of more than 12,000 people.

The sound reinforcement system included a total of 24 JBL VRX932LAP Crown-powered Constant Curvature line array speakers, each equipped with a DCP-2 power module featuring JBL’s exclusive Dual Bridged Technology™, with each amplifier channel linked to one voice coil of the Differential Drive loudspeaker. The system was arranged in a 360-degree format, with four arrays of six rigged on each side of the ring. An additional 12 JBL VRX918SP powered portable subwoofers were located under the ring and used to extend the system’s low frequency performance. A dbx 4800 Loudspeaker Management System was used to handle array zoning and equalization functions.

Full system setup, from the moment Ricky’s Audio unloaded its truck, was completed in a 2-hour period with a 4-person crew. “Thanks to the light weight of the VRX loudspeakers, we were able to hang them on the same structural trusses for the lighting system without any complaint from the lighting contractor, and their low power consumption enabled us to use only one power cable consisting of six 20-amp circuits, but using only four of these lines,? said Ricardo Heredia of Ricky’s Audio Corporation. “Spectacular clarity, coherence and even coverage could be noticed everywhere in the venue, and it was possible due to the great quality and performance of the Harman products.?
