Las Vegas, NV – July 2013 … Located inside the Miracle Mile Shops of the Planet Hollywood Resort on the world famous Las Vegas Strip, the Saxe Theater is home to several of this town’s most popular shows. In addition to hosting BeatleShow! – the award winning tribute to the Beatles, patrons can also see national TV headliner and America’s Got Talent star, Nathan Burton; as well as the winner of BroadwayWorld.com’s 2012 Resident Show of The Year: VEGAS! the Show. Entertainment is king here, so all aspects of a show must be top notch. That’s precisely why the Saxe Theater recently upgraded their sound reinforcement capabilities by installing a new loudspeaker system drawn from the Aero Series 2 and Convert catalogs of Valencia, Spain-based D.A.S. Audio.

GC Pro, the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the requirements of professional users, was contracted to design and install the Saxe Theater’s new sound system. GC Pro Account Manager Don Hartley, working in conjunction with Jeff Pressler, Head of Audio for David Saxe Productions, penned a system that consisted of eight Aero 12A powered two-way, mid-high line array modules with additional support from a pair of Convert 12A powered two-way full range loudspeakers. GC Pro’s Hartley, who was closely involved in the project from early system demonstrations to the actual design and installation, discussed the project. more
