Australian Rock Legend Cold Chisel Benefits From HARMAN’s new JBL VERTEC(r) V5 Presets

NORTHRIDGE, California – After legendary Australian rock band Cold Chisel rapturously received industry accolades for best-of arena shows of last year, the band recently played at the Festival Hall in Melbourne where sound engineer Greg Rosman utilized the venue’s in-house HARMAN JBL VERTEC(r) line array system, installed by JPJ Audio. For these shows, Rosman had a powerful new weapon in his arsenal: JBL V5 VERTEC presets courtesy of the new Crown VRack, a complete power amplifier and digital signal processing management rack system solution. The VRack features three built-in Crown I-Tech IT 12000HD amplifiers, immediately providing an easy-to-configure, plug-and-play solution that eliminates the need to build amplifier racks.

“The VRacks have made a big difference to the sound of VERTEC,” commented Rosman. “They allow us access to the new JBL VERTEC V5 presets and with V5 it’s like having a new VERTEC system all over again!”

The VERTEC V5 DSP presets offer significant improvements in horizontal coverage due to the use of higher order, asymmetric filters, and improved sound quality via phase linearization. The presets also offer improved system response to equalization, far-field summation and throw, and inter-array interaction/summation and stereo imaging.

“The VERTEC V5 DSP is the next step forward in delivering the best sound possible,” Rosman added. “We found that the high end was much smoother and the low-end response was great. Paul Bauman, Senior Manager, Tour Sound for JBL Professional, has done a great job of tidying up their presets to make the VERTEC sound significantly better. There’s no denying that JBL has really got it right with the V5.”

The PA system in the Festival Hall consists of two strips of six VT4889 full size line array cabinets and side hangs of two strips of three VT4889, plus sub bass and front fill.

“Really they’ve had a noticeable performance upgrade without buying new equipment!” Rosman concluded. “The software upgrade was done really quickly-V5 is great value for anyone who uses VERTEC.”
