Cast Of 4400 Performs at Arrowhead Pond Arena, Anaheim

September 30th, 2005

Poll Sound used EV XLC line arrays and remote-control DSP P-RL series amplifiers to ensure complete coverage and complete system supervision. Poll Sound’s Jesse Edgel reported:

“To call this a big production would be something of an understatement! The whole north section of the arena was cordoned off so the cast could sit there and wait for their cues, coming down in groups according to the number they were doing. During the finale, the show floor was at capacity, with about 2200 kids out there performing. Obviously we didn’t want to take any chances with the PA, so it was great that the system we used had the built-in assurance that every driver was working. A large part of the rig - 30 P3000RL and 38 XLC boxes - is owned by the LDS Church. We spec’d and sold them the equipment, which is primarily used at four of their larger venues as a “mobile’ installed PA. The configuration changes depending on the venue and the size of the event - they typically range from 6000 to 20,000 people. We trained their staff of operators, and, with the assistance of EV tech support guru Ethan Wetzell, we also built in all the IRIS control software presets they need for any of their venues, which range from “in the round’ to LCR applications. So, even though this is a seriously robust and reliable sound system, it offers portable, plug in and play convenience.“

Edgel continued: “For larger events like this, Poll Sound is on hand to add on to this core system as necessary. For this pageant, we used 30 P3000RL amps running IRIS software to control the main left and right arrays of 15 XLCs and a rear fill array of 9 XLCs. Two 12-box side fill arrays were controlled by two Klark Teknik DN9848s. 8 X-Subs took care of the low end. Additional power was provided by 4 P1200, 4 P2000, and 8 P3000 amps. The venue has an extremely steep upper balcony, and I wasn’t able to trim as high as I wanted, plus there were a couple of huge video screens to negotiate. The inclination angle at the top the array was six degrees - they were arced on both ends like gigantic bananas! However tricky things may have appeared, we had the ability to monitor the performance of every single driver in the main arrays, all via laptop. Simple. Less concerns about system performance equals more time focused on mixing the show, which is essential with this much activity going on.“
