HOUSTON, Texas — Lending further proof to the saying “everything is bigger in Texas,” L-ACOUSTICS US reports that Houston-based LD Systems has now purchased a mega-stadium-sized K1/KUDO system. Hailed as one of the largest sales in the manufacturer’s 28-year history, the order comprises 386 enclosures — including variable curvature, constant curvature and coaxial systems — all powered by LA-RAK.

According to Rob McKinley, co-founder, president and owner of LD Systems, the quantity of product was largely driven by the sound reinforcement needs of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, which has been an annual client since 1985. In February and March of each year, as part of RodeoHouston, up to 75,000 people pack Reliant Stadium on any given night for three straight weeks of rodeo action and concerts from some of the biggest stars in pop, rock and country music. more

Micworks Masterminds “Genius” Sound with KARA

L-ACOUSTICS system deployed on 80th annual Pageant of the Masters

LAGUNA BEACH, California – September 2012 — Celebrating its milestone 80th season this year, Pageant of the Masters is an annual summer festival where life truly does imitate art. Staged at the 2,700-seat Irvine Bowl in Laguna Beach, the Festival of Arts event is best known for its “tableaux vivants” in which classical and contemporary works of art are recreated onstage through an elaborate mix of costumed models, props, backdrops and lighting.

This year’s production, known as “Genius”, focused on the works of numerous visionaries like Michelangelo, Vincent van Gogh, and Leonardo da Vinci. But the visual aspect of the event was only half of the story. Accompanying the 90-minute show of “living pictures” each night throughout July and August were a professional narrator, vocalists singing period pieces, and a 30-member live orchestra, all sonically reinforced via a new L-ACOUSTICS KARA system. more
