Electro-Voice sound for Monsters of Rock Festival

September 1, 2008

The system’s X-Line component featured left and right arrays of 12 Xvls and two Xvlt, each flanked by 12 flown Xsubs. 12 XLC-DVX127 per side were deployed as out-fill arrays, with additional low-end support via 12 ground-stacked Xsubs. Four Xf, four Xn, and eight Xb (per side) from EV’s X-Array line served as front fills. 56 P3000RL amps powered the X-Line and Xsubs, with 12 TG-7 for the XLC. IRIS-Net control and supervision software was used for the X-Line and XLC systems.Sound Art Calgary Operations Manager Ronan McGurk was Systems Tech for the show, and described why X-Line is hard to beat when it comes to delivering massive sonic horsepower for heavy rock:
“The system’s X-Line component featured left and right arrays of 12 Xvls and two Xvlt, each flanked by 12 flown Xsubs.”

This was the first large concert at McMahon Stadium in years, and it was an amazing-sounding one. We had more than enough PA to cover the whole stadium. It was typical EV: simple to fly, simple to use, sounding great. All the engineers at the show were very pleased with the sound quality. The X-Line and Xsubs always impress; the newer equipment, particularly the TG amps and XLC-DVX, are great too. The DVX speakers provide so much body and definition, though it’s not just the woofers that have impressed me with the DVX upgrade from the XLC-127+, it’s the whole box. It was a big, loud rock show, and this PA was perfect.“
