Crown Powers The Underground

Crown XTi 2000 and CTs 2000 amplifiers installed at the Basilica of St. Pius X

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

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.
