EV X-Line: Loud & Proud with Lynyrd Skynyrd and 3 Doors Down

July 21, 2006

LD Systems’ Electro-Voice X-Line System, comprised of 40 Xvls, 8 Xvlt, and 28 Xsub boxes, is delivering the Skynyrd classics and 3DD hits with unmatched musicality and punchiness night after night. The system is powered by 74 EV P3000RL remote control DSP amplifiers; additional EV equipment includes 8 EV X-Array Xn fills.

“As always, the X-Line rig sounds awesome”
“As always, the X-Line rig sounds awesome,“ reported Robert Ausmus of LD Systems, “it’s really unmatched as a rock rig - ask anyone who’s heard one! Crew Chief Tony Luna and his crew also love how quickly they can load in and tear down the system. X-Line deployment is headache-free. When you often have the main system up and ready to go by 10:30 in the morning, you can spend the day fine-tuning the other details - it all adds finesse to the tour production.

“This tour is playing all kinds of venues, and the X-Line is proving equally impressive in all of them; be it a shed, a stadium or an arena, it simply sounds good. Playing all these shapes and sizes of venues has really proved the X-Line’s flexibility. For example, we’ve had great results using the Xsubs in one particular configuration: in all the sheds and some stadiums, we landed the flown 14-box sub arrays on the stage deck, creating two stable, super-tall sub stacks with small footprints. This coupling gives us the best of both worlds, allowing us to deliver the serious punch of ground-stacked Xsubs all the way off in the far field of a large venue. You need that consistent punch to make a rock show really satisfying, and this means every seat in the house gets the full sonic experience.“
