Chicago, Ill.⎯ EDGE ShowTek of Northbrook, Illinois was recently tapped for audio support of the Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup Celebration Rally. An estimated 2 million fans lined Michigan Avenue to join the Blackhawks in celebrating their hard-earned win.

Eight NEXO PS15s, eight PS10s, six CD18s, and a Yamaha LS9-16 were also part of the audio production system. more
