HOUSTON, Texas — Billed as the world’s largest live entertainment and exhibition event, the annual Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ — with rodeo and concert events known as RodeoHouston® — is also one of Texas’ largest charities having contributed over $330 million to the state’s youth since 1932.

Loud & Clear installs KARA system at Millett Hall

OXFORD, Ohio – March 2013 — John D. Millett Hall on the campus of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio is best recognized as home to the school’s popular RedHawks basketball and volleyball teams. But the 9,200-capacity venue is also well known as the site for the school’s commencement exercises, as well as concerts and other events from a list of guests as varied as Yo-Yo Ma, Beck, Bill Cosby, The Fray, O.A.R., Bela Fleck, Jay Leno and the Dalai Lama.

With the facility’s aging distributed PA system struggling to even accommodate announcements at sporting events, the school hired Cincinnati-based L-ACOUSTICS Certified Provider Loud & Clear, Inc. to supply a sound reinforcement system each time it hosted a concert. Now, Loud & Clear has turned a satisfied rental client into an even happier fixed install client with the recent installation of an L-ACOUSTICS KARA system. more
