Fort Worth, TX – August 2011… The recently opened Cendera Center is a multipurpose facility designed to accommodate a wide range of functions, including fine arts performances, meetings, training sessions / presentations, boxing events, parties, and more. With such a varied agenda, selecting a sound reinforcement system capable of providing pristine music reproduction characteristics as well as a high level of speech intelligibility was a paramount issue during the venue’s planning stages. After evaluating a variety of systems, the consultants and client agreed that a self-powered setup drawn from the Aero Series 2 catalog of Valencia, Spain-based D.A.S. Audio was, without question, the right way to go. more

But the biggest draw, by far, is the festival’s third day when the city closes off the four blocks between Doheny Drive and San Vicente Boulevard and a number of top-name acts converge to rock two main outdoor stages on Sunset Boulevard itself. more

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Boulevard Professional (Oradell, N.J.) recently installed a NEXO GEO S12 line array system along with Yamaha LS9-32 and SB168-ES Stage Box at the Goodwill Church in Montgomery, New York. Several years ago, the company was called in to design and install a state-of-the-art sound system for a new worship space. Unexpectedly, funding was cut and it appeared the installation would be placed on the back burner. In a successful fund raising mission by members of church, the goal required to purchase and install a new system had been met, and by the fall of last year, work had begun.

The 700-seat contemporary church has a diverse, active congregation with 1,000 in attendance each week. A full band and six vocalists accompany the sermons. “It was very apparent early on that a new system for Goodwill Church would not just be for spoken word,? states James Cioffi, more
