Electro-Voice Xld Hits the Catwalk for “Fashion Week Live“

April 2nd, 2007

Houston’s LD Systems deployed their favorite new equipment line-the Electro-Voice XLD very compact line array-for FashionWeekLive, which showcased the most acclaimed creations from two-dozen of the industry’s top designers. Designed to bring the exclusive world of high fashion to a mainstream audience, the event was delivered with a decidedly rock n roll & hip hop vibe, largely thanks to the concert-quality sound system.

LD Systems lead systems tech Matt Sterling and freelance A1 Engineer Garth Hemphill spec’d four overhead hangs of four deep XLD boxes, along with 8 Xsubs placed under the stadium style seating in the enormous tent erected to house the show. “Obviously in a large temporary tent like this, weight is a critical issue,“ says Robert Ausmus, Director of Production Services, LD Systems, “and you have the various contractors vying for their share of weight-requirements and fly space. The XLD fell comfortably into the required weight and space category, while delivering more than enough SPL horsepower for 1,800 people.“

“It’s really amazing to hear something as small as the XLD do what it does,“ Ausmus adds. “We had great results with the XLD on a few gigs with both Los

Lonely Boys & Martina McBride-so much so that we doubled our XLD inventory this year-and it’s proven equally impressive for spoken word, corporate and higher SPL country and rock gigs. And, of course, XLD has the vocal warmth and musicality we like so much in its big brothers the XLC and X-Line. We’re equally impressed with them all.“
