Firehouse Productions and HARMAN’s JBL VTX Line Arrays Help Global Citizen Festival Raise Poverty Awareness

NORTHRIDGE, California – The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Neil Young and Crazy Horse and many others rocked out recently in New York City’s Central Park for the Global Citizen Festival, a free concert highlighting the effort to combat poverty around the world. New York-based Firehouse Productions provided the live sound reinforcement system for the event, which featured HARMAN’s JBL VTX line arrays.

While the Global Citizen Festival was free, the estimated 60,000 concertgoers were only allowed to attend after accumulating points by watching videos on globalcitizen.org about various issues dealing with poverty. In addition to the musical performances, celebrities including K’Naan, John Legend, Katie Couric and economist Jeffrey D. Sachs delivered speeches during equipment changes.

For the main PA system, Firehouse provided 36 (18 per side) JBL VTX V25 fullsize arrayable line array loudspeakers, 32 (16 per side) VERTEC® VT4880A fullsize arrayable subwoofers, with two VT4888 midsize line array loudspeakers for front fills. In addition, 48 (four clusters of 12) VT4889 fullsize line array loudspeakers provided delay fill along with 24 (12 per side) VT4880A subwoofers. Crown I-Tech HD 12000 amplifiers powered the entire system.

“This event was straightforward from a sound design standpoint, as with outdoor concerts many of the obstacles of filtering sound are eliminated, since there are no columns or walls that we have to worry about,” explained Mark Dittmar, Lead Design & Integration Engineer at Firehouse Productions. “The VTX line arrays continue to give us the sound quality and smooth coverage that we rely on and we’ve never had a problem.”

“The light weight of the VTX made the load-in and setup process a breeze,” Dittmar added. “The combination of VTX with the Crown I-Tech HD amplifiers is the best solution out there for live sound applications of all sizes and scopes.”

New Sound System is Music to Sisters’ Ears

Renowned Domed Chapel Gets Major Upgrade

Sinsinawa, WI – November 2012…  Sinsinawa is said to be a Native American term for “rattlesnake,” or “home of the young eagle.” But Sinsinawa Mound, Wisconsin is better known as the home of the Congregation of Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters. Since 1847, more than 3,200 women have ascended the “Hill of Grace” to take their vows as Sinsinawa Dominicans. Today the village is still home to their worldwide headquarters, including more than 600 current and retired sisters of the Order.

In 1964 the campus, with its 1850s-vintage fort, was expanded with the construction of an 800-seat crown chapel, replete with massive 45-foot dome and transept wings. The building’s marble and plaster interior creates an acoustical environment that works magnificently to enhance the Order’s celebrated pipe organ. But as their needs have changed over time, those same acoustics have created a whole new set of challenges.

“It’s a beautiful facility that has always been renowned for its musical acoustics,” explains Scott Wright, President of Platteville, WI-based Lifeline Audio Video Technologies. “But in today’s world they’re using it more and more often for spoken word and piano-vocal recitals, and it simply wasn’t designed for that.”

“It’s a very large room, with a reverb time of more than four seconds,” adds Lifeline VP Mike Mair, “and as they’ve been doing more spoken word and piano-oriented services, vocal intelligibility has become more of an issue.”

To be fair, the room was not completely without sound reinforcement. But the original decades-old speaker system had never been adequate for the space. “The reverb time was markedly longer in the middle of the room, where the dome is higher,” Mair explains, “and as a result many of the sisters were seating themselves around the edges near the transepts, where they could hear a bit better, and leaving the center of the room pretty much empty.”

sinsinawa“They had talked to many contractors over the years in an attempt to find a solution, and everyone wanted to convince them to hang large speaker clusters and treat the room acoustically,” says Wright. “That just wasn’t going to happen. This is not your typical 1000-seat church – it’s a very special, very unique environment. Altering the aesthetics of the place was not open to discussion. It’s a beautiful, majestic space, and there’s simply no way you could hang a cluster of loudspeakers from this ceiling. From a structural perspective, it would have been problematic, to say the least. But beyond that, there’s simply no way they would have allowed it.”

One of the biggest challenges in designing an audio system for the space was the need to retain the room’s reverberant character. Acoustical treatment was simply not an option. “People from all over the world come to play organ recitals in this hall, and they were not willing to compromise the room’s acoustics as an organ recital facility,” says Wright. “But the majority of daily use for the space is really spoken word, and some choral singing with piano and organ. So we needed a very controllable, highly intelligible system that would address the room’s reverb issues without altering its character. The bottom line was, if we were going to achieve any intelligibility in that space at all, we had to control where the sound went.”

Lifeline’s solution was a simple and elegant one – a pair of Renkus-Heinz Iconyx IC24-R digitally steerable array loudspeaker systems. The Iconyx arrays, mounted on either side of the altar, addressed virtually all of the chapel’s long-standing issues.

“We’ve used Iconyx in a number of previous projects, and have always been successful with them,” Wright says. “They are without a doubt our choice for a steerable array, and we feel they are the best one on the market.”

A demo was arranged via Carl Schwartz of rep firm Frequency Sales. “We arranged a demo for about 70 people,” says Wright. “They were definitely skeptical, since they’ve tried so many systems over the years. But we’ve done a few projects with them in the past, and the results have always been successful, so they trusted us.”

“We just plugged a mic directly into the Iconyx, with flat EQ,” says Mair. “The results were remarkable. You could see eyes popping open all over the room. They were just astounded.”

“I got up at the lectern and read a few things, and they still couldn’t believe what they were hearing,” says Wright. “At first, several of the sisters were saying, ‘oh, it’s just because he’s got a very booming, male voice.’ So we had Sister Priscilla Wood get up and do a reading, and they all said, ‘yes! That’s what she sounds like.’ After that, the next question was whether we could we get it installed by Thursday.”

A Biamp Nexia presentation mixer provides microphone inputs for their wireless, pulpit and choir mics. “They’re very happy with the simplicity of the system,” says Mair. “It’s very easy for them to run.”

“They had waited many, many years to find the right solution,” says Wright. “Essentially, they waited until technology caught up with their needs. Finally, with Iconyx, we found a solution that really worked for them. They weren’t looking for a minor improvement; they were looking for a night-and-day difference. And that’s exactly what they got.”

Sound Image Outfits House of Blues Las Vegas With HARMAN’S JBL VTX Line Arrays

NORTHRIDGE, California – The House of Blues Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay hotel is one of Las Vegas’ premier concert venues—and it just upped the ante with the installation of HARMAN’s JBL VTX Series line array. The House of Blues hosts major touring acts and will be home to a 2-year residency by Carlos Santana, performing his “Greatest Hits Live: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” through 2014. Sound Image of Escondido, California, designed and installed the JBL VTX system under the direction of Jason Schmidlapp, with support from Dave Kaiser of Sound Marketing West, HARMAN Professional’s regional sales rep firm.

The system includes two 13-box hangs of 10 VTX 25 line arrays and three VERTEC® VT4880A fullsize arrayable subwoofers on each side of the stage, complemented by six ASB7128 subwoofers under the stage and six VERTEC VT4886 subcompact line array elements for upper balcony fill. In addition, a JBL AC18 compact 2-way loudspeaker and ASB6112 compact 12-inch subwoofer are installed in each of the VIP suites.

“The House of Blues Las Vegas had gotten to the point where it really needed to upgrade its sound system,” said Dan Schartoff, VP of Production for House of Blues Entertainment. “The VTX boxes were a bit larger than the previous system so the suspension points had to change, and we also had to work around the room’s upper balcony. We had to move the array stacks slightly upstage and offstage to keep the sight lines to the stage clear. As it turned out, this enabled us to give patrons a better view of the stage since previously some of the speakers were stacked on the stage underneath the flown speakers. The better, more focused coverage of the VTX line arrays enabled us to eliminate the on-stage speakers while delivering much better sound.”

The upper balcony was a large hurdle to overcome, Schartoff noted. “The two array hangs are fairly close to the balcony, so we decided to install the subwoofers in the middle of both arrays. Six VTX V25 provide balcony coverage with three VT4880A flown in the middle of the array and four V25 for floor coverage,” he said. “The 13-box arrays were carefully designed to fit the available space and the bottom V25 enclosure of the balcony section is at the same elevation as the first row of the balcony, providing excellent off-axis coverage. The subwoofers are in the middle and close to the balcony surfaces, which helps to reduce reflections while at the same time allowing for improved under-balcony penetration since the lower V25 enclosures have line of sight coverage to the back of the room.”

The loudspeakers are powered by Crown IT 12000HD and XTi Series amplifiers. Loudspeaker management is performed via dbx DriveRack® 4800 speaker management systems. A Soundcraft Vi1 digital live sound console handles some front-of-house mixing duties. “We used HARMAN HiQnet System Architect™ software to do the setup and installation,” said Schmidlapp, “which really streamlined the whole process.”

“We were eager to do an installation with the new VTX line arrays as soon as we’d heard about them, and we bid on the House of Blues job, which would give us a great setting as a showcase room,” Schmidlapp noted. “If you’re going to go big, what better place to go big than Las Vegas? At the same time we were contracted to do the install, Carlos Santana was looking for someplace with a younger, hip clientele for his upcoming residency and chose the House of Blues. The timing wound up being perfect for us.”

The installation makes Sound Image the first company to install a JBL VTX system. “What a perfect deal—now, Santana is being showcased with the newest pro rig on the market,” Schmidlapp said. “I think Santana’s pretty impressed with it. Wait until you hear it!”

“Carlos Santana performing through a VTX line array system at the House of Blues Las Vegas is a match made in heaven,” said Paul Bauman, Senior Manager, Tour Sound for JBL Professional, who was instrumental in providing onsite support during the installation. “This project was truly a team effort under the guidance of Dan Schartoff and his team at Live Nation, coupled with Sound Image’s expert design and implementation and outstanding support from Sound Marketing West.”

“I can honestly say JBL hit the nail on the head with VTX—I can’t say enough about how good this box sounds,” said Rob Mailman, Touring Operations Manager for Sound Image and FOH engineer for Santana. “It is very transparent, solid throughout all bands and does really well not leaving me fatigued at the end of a long and loud show.”

ENTASYS Brings Clarity to Historic Philadelphia Sanctuary

Sharon Hill, PA, October 2012… Since its founding in 1891, Holy Spirit Catholic Church has held a special place in the hearts of Philadelphia-area residents. In the early years of the twentieth century, the church forged a reputation as one of the few non-segregated churches and parochial schools in the region.

Dedicated in 1961, Holy Spirit’s current sanctuary is a unique and welcoming space, resplendent with ornate woodcarvings, wrought iron, and magnificent stained glass, including perhaps one of the only works commemorating John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s inauguration as the country’s first Catholic president.

But the same elements that make the sanctuary so beautiful to behold also make it a rather acoustically challenging space. As Tony Albano of Avondale, PA-based Naamans Creek Audio Video explains, the room’s configuration is anything but ordinary.

“It’s a very different type of room,” says Albano. “The chapel itself is surrounded by smaller sub-chapels. The walls are largely brick, and the ceiling is about 30 feet high at its peak. It’s a complex space, and very reflective, and they’ve always had problems with intelligibility.”

To address the room’s sonic issues, Albano designed an audio system comprising four Community ENTASYS column line array loudspeakers. Two more ENTASYS columns provide delay toward the back of the room. A Crown CTS-4200 four-channel amplifier drives the system, with Rane RPM-88 providing system DSP.

“Their previous system had been pretty problematic,” says Albano. “Parishioners complained about loud volume but low intelligibility, particularly along the center seating areas. The ENTASYS columns were the ideal solution for focusing the sound away from the walls and windows and into the seating area where it belongs. Several of the church’s long-time parishioners have said that it’s the first time they could actually understand the priest’s sermon.”

Busy Day for Premier Production & Sound Services and HARMAN’s JBL Loudspeakers Includes Sound Reinforcement for Voodoo Experience Festival and Other Regional Events

NORTHRIDGE, California – Premier Production & Sound Services, LLC (PSS) of Baton Rouge, Louisiana is one of the region’s biggest sound companies, and on October 25 the company proved it, providing HARMAN’s JBL, Crown, dbx and BSS audio gear for no less than 14 locations throughout the area. The day gave PSS the chance to put its newly purchased JBL VTX Series line arrays into play at the “Le Plur/Red Bulletin” stage at the Voodoo Experience festival, which featured Skrillex, Die Antwoord, Dave Stewart, Thomas Dolby and other top artists performing for more than 100,000 fans at City Park in New Orleans.

“We recently purchased a number of the new JBL VTX Series V25 fullsize line array elements and S28 arrayable subwoofers, and the Voodoo Experience was the perfect proving ground because the Le Plur/Red Bulletin stage was inside a tent, which limited the height that was available to fly the main left and right clusters,” noted Brian W. Gordon, Co-Owner of PSS.

For the main PA system at the Le Plur/Red Bulletin stage, PSS hung six V25 elements per side and placed six S28 subs per side on the ground in a cardioid configuration. PSS also used four JBL VERTEC® VT4886 subcompact line array elements for front fill, 16 JBL SRX712M monitor wedges and three stacks each of two VERTEC VT4883 subcompact arrayable subwoofers plus four VT4886 loudspeakers for side fill. The speakers were powered by two racks that each housed 18 Crown IT 12000HD amplifiers, plus six IT 8000 amps for the monitors and three IT 4×3500 HD amps for the side fills. A Soundcraft Vi6 digital console was used for front of house mixing.

“This was the second year we provided sound for the Le Plur/Red Bulletin stage and even though we were more limited in the available space where we could deploy the speakers, the system had more horsepower and sounded fantastic, thanks to the VTX line arrays,” Gordon said.

For the Voodoo Le Carnival stage, PSS flew left-right arrays of four JBL VERTEC VT4888 midsize line array elements, four VT4886 line array elements and three SRX728S subwoofers on each side. Additional near-field left and right stacks included four VT4887A compact line array elements and three SRX728S subwoofers. Four VT4887A speakers also provided front fill, while PSS also provided 12 SRX712M stage monitors, one STX835 with two VRX918S subwoofers as side fill, and one STX835 with two VT4883 subwoofers as drum fill.

While the Voodoo Experience would qualify as a full weekend of work for any sound company, it was merely the tip of the iceberg for PSS. “We’re a big company and we’re used to doing things on a big scale, but the weekend of the Voodoo Experience was just crazy,” said Russ Bryant, Director of Operations and Co-Owner of PSS. “In addition to the Voodoo Experience, Harry Connick, Jr. at L’Auberge Casino and Hotel in Baton Rouge, the Live After Five concert series in Baton Rouge and the Belle of Baton Rouge Casino concert series, we also provided sound for events at Tulane University, the Sheraton Galleria, Sullivan’s Steakhouse, the Roux House, Los Diablos, a private show and inside and outside the Station Sports Bar and Grill. Altogether we took out more than 700 loudspeakers, amplifiers and other pieces of gear—not counting cables!”

“We also brought in the VTX line arrays for a very different situation—Harry Connick, Jr. at the L’Auberge Casino in Baton Rouge,” Bryant noted. “For this show we used six V25 mains and three S28 subs per side, along with four VT4886’s per side and four more for front fills, all driven by Crown I-Tech HD Series amps. This was a very different situation than the Voodoo festival, a quieter and more intimate indoor setting where clarity and nuance were paramount as opposed to rocking out 100,000 people. Again, the system sounded superb.”

How was PSS able to handle 14 stages and rooms in three days? “We have 20 engineers on staff,” said Russ Bryant, Co-Owner and Director of Operations for PSS. “We pride ourselves in providing systems for any application from a huge festival to an intimate club.”

“Using HARMAN’S HiQnet System Architect™, JBL HiQnet Performance Manager™, JBL’s Line Array II Calculator system setup software and the VERTEC V5 preset tunings makes it a lot easier and faster to set up our systems and make them sound great in any venue,” Gordon added. “In fact, we had an unusual situation at the Voodoo Le Carnival stage. The stage had both an inside and an outside area, with 1,000 people between the stage and the set of left and right stacks that were 25 feet from the stage. Because of the unconventional tent construction and location, those stacks were sort of like a hybrid between a front fill, a really powerful main system and a set of delay towers that were only 25 feet from the stage. The fact that all the HARMAN loudspeakers, amps and software all talked to each other really helped us sort out and optimize this unusual acoustic situation.”

SACPS & Martin Audio Rock Wine Country At Charity Fall Music Festival

Glen Ellen, CA––For the last 26 years, the B.R. Cohn Winery and Olive Oil Company has held a Charity Fall Music Festival in the heart of the Sonoma Valley wine country.

Owner Bruce Cohn, who also manages the Doobie Brothers, is the guiding force behind this star-studded musical event that benefits a host of local charities. This year the bill featured the Doobie Brothers with Michael McDonald and Friends, Kenny Loggins, Buddy Guy, The Turtles, Dave Mason, War, Lara Johnston and others over a two-day period.

Sacramento Production Services provided audio and staging for the first time this year, largely on the recommendation of John Procaccini, Production Manager for the Festival and Doobie Brothers FOH Engineer Gary Hartung. Gary had worked with Martin Audio in the past and was familiar with the W8LC line array system and knew it would work well for the festival to provide better coverage and SPLs throughout the venue.

“The event was a real success,” explains SACPS’ Keith Wackford. “It’s the first time in 26 years that every act was on stage, on time. Kenny Loggins actually got onstage three minutes early! The crews and staff on both sides were great and we did a lot of hard work to make sure we had what we needed to pull this event off.”

According the Wackford, the main stage speaker system consisted of 9 Martin Audio W8LCs per side for the main hangs; 6 W8LCs a side for out fill; 14 ground-stacked W8LS subwoofers; two W2s for front fill; two WT3s for drum fill, 14 LE12J stage monitors and a pair of W8Cs with S218X subs per side for side fill.

Separate consoles were brought in for the festival; a pair of Yamaha PM5Ds at FOH and a pair of PM5Ds for Monitors. Three racks of Lab Gruppen PLM20Ks powered the system.

Crew for SACPS included Keith Wackford (FOH), Dwayne Wise (System Engineer), Rick Stansby (Monitor Engineer), and Evan Drath (Asst. Monitor Engineer). Rick Santell (Huey Lewis) was Stage Manager.

Asked about reaction to the Martin Audio system, Wackford enthuses “Everyone loved it. Fans at the Festival thought this was the best sounding year ever. The Doobie Brothers’ FOH and Production Manager said it was one their best years yet. At the end of the night when the trucks were loaded, John Procaccini said ‘you hit the ball out of the park’.”
