Crown I-Tech and XTi amplifiers power concert series at historic outdoor venue

LOS ANGELES – September 2007 – Nothing provides a better focus for an urban population than a free summer concert series, a fact that is being beautifully illustrated by MacArthur Park’s historic Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts.

To properly accommodate sound reinforcement duties for a highly diverse roster of acts, LA Sound Company, in conjunction with Brian Riordan of Levels Audio, has elected to use Crown I-Tech and XTi Series power amplifiers driving a fully JBL loudspeaker setup. more

World’s largest music festival features numerous L-ACOUSTICS loudspeaker systems, including the unofficial world debut of the new SB28 subwoofer!

MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin – August 2007 – Given the fact that Milwaukee’s baseball team is known as the Brewers–a name honoring Miller, Pabst, Schlitz and Blatz, all of which have called the city their home–it should be no surprise that native Milwaukeeans know how to throw a party. However, few events evidence this fact as well as Summerfest, quite literally the world’s largest music festival, which this year celebrated its 40th anniversary at Henry Maier Festival Park on the picturesque shores of Lake Michigan. more
