Atlanta Sound and Lighting EV Line Array Event Diary

November 3rd, 2006



“ASL has an extensive selection of Electro-Voice and Dynacord equipment on hand,“ Stapleton says, “from the ultra-compact Dynacord Cobra-2, XA2 and EV XLE systems to the EV XLD and XLC. Together these are a resource that allows us to produce high-impact, small-footprint shows on a daily basis. Individually, these systems are all incredible. However, combining two or more of these product lines doesn’t cause us problems, as can be the case with other manufacturer’s equipment. All the above elements compliment each other, giving us the right balance of high SPL with ultimate clarity and precision. There really isn’t any application an EV product in our arsenal cannot handle. Back that up with the relationship we have with Telex/EV as a company and as individuals, and we’re over the moon with what we’ve been able to achieve.“

Hank Williams Jr.

Brunswick, GA. Oct 27, 2006.



“This was a cool event to be involved in. This event was for Single Point Productions, down on the Golden Isles Speedway just outside Brunswick GA. This was a Hank show, so ample SPL is a big concern. For this one ASL provided arrays of 12x XLC 127+ per side, with six flown XLC 118’s per side and four ground-stacked EV MT2’s per side. We also had plenty of power on stage, with two flown EV X-Array Xn boxes over 2 EV MT2s, along with 10x Xw12 and 10x Xw15 monitors, controlled by EV Dx38 processors and powered by EV CP 3000S amplifiers. FOH console for Hank was a Midas Heritage 3000; everyone else fitted festival-style on a Midas Verona 480.“

Aids Walk Atlanta

Piedmont Park, Atlanta, GA. Oct 6, 2006.



“This show is a very high profile event for our company. Its is not a high SPL event, but it requires the ultimate in sonic clarity. To achieve this for this year’s event we deployed arrays of eight EV XLD per side with four EV XLC 118 subs per side. A Midas Verona 480 handled FOH; a Midas Verona 480 took care of the monitor mix, which was fed to EV Xw12 wedges. On the podium we opted for a single EV PolarChoice microphone, which performed brilliantly under the windy conditions. We needed the PA to throw 120 degrees and a distance of 600 feet, with the highest level of intelligibility, and it performed wonderfully.“

“Southern Exposure“

Greenville, SC. Sep 26, 2006.



Line-up: Edwin McCain, Keller Williams, Drivin ’n’ Cryin’, Angie Aparo (and many more).

“This show was a benefit for Edwin McCain’s charities in the Greenville area. Held on the West Side Ballground, this venue posed an interesting challenge for us. The stage faced the stands with FOH on home plate, giving us a reversed gating effect at FOH. EV’s LAPS (line array prediction software) was critical in this application to restrict the amount of energy hitting flat surfaces and, thanks to the ease of use of LAPS, we managed to overcome the gating effect. FOH was handled by arrays of eight XLD boxes per side, with six ground-stacked EV XLC 118’s per side. Philip Ducker (FOH, Edwin McCain) was very impressed with the size, SPL, and coverage distance of the XLD-so much so that we are negotiating some system installs with him in Greenville. Midas Verona 480 (FOH) and Midas Siena consoles were used for the event.“

Washington D.C. CareerBuilder Corporate Show (featuring Blues Traveler)

June 6, 2006.



“This was an interesting show. The event was held at the National Building Museum in Washington. The room was 90 feet to the steel, with three pairs of giant columns dividing the room into three zones. The main stage area was taken care of with arrays of six EV XLD per side, with four EV MT2’s per side under the stage deck. Monitor duties for this event were handled by Xw12 and Xw15 boxes, powered and processed by our amp racks loaded with EV CP 3000S amplifiers and EV Dx38 system controllers. The other two zones in the room were given Dynacord Cobra-2 stackable line arrays, all time-aligned to the main system.“
