NORTHRIDGE, California – Boston’s House of Blues is committed to great sound for great music, and its HARMAN JBL loudspeaker system is designed to let concertgoers hear their favorite bands and artists at their best. Operated by concert producer Live Nation, the Boston House of Blues can hold more than 2,000 people and needed a sound system to meet the demands of its expansive layout.

The main audio system includes 20 JBL VERTEC® VT4888DP powered midsize line array enclosures with DrivePack® technology, six ASB6128 subwoofers, and JBL AC26 loudspeakers for under-balcony fill. The stage monitor system is comprised of 12 JBL SRX712M stage monitors and four VRX915M stage monitors.

The system was designed and installed by Sound Image of Escondido, California. The installation also includes two Soundcraft Vi6 digital mixing consoles, Crown IT4000 amplifiers and a dbx DriveRack® 4800 loudspeaker management system for front-end processing. All the system’s components are networked via HARMAN’s HiQnet System Architect™ communications protocol.

“The powered VERTEC line arrays were easy to install and provide a combination of power and clarity that made them ideal for the Boston House of Blues,? said Jason Schmidlapp of Sound Image. “After tuning the room, the system sounds remarkable and is rider-friendly—an important quality for a venue that brings in some of the biggest names in music.?
