Electro-Voice sound rocks 80,000 in Bogota, Colombia
Dozens of rock acts performed over the course of the day, putting the mighty X-Line through its paces in the 300-meter deep venue. Whereas main arrays of 20 boxes per side are the norm for concert events in Simon Bolivar Park, X-Line impressed by providing more output-115dBA at front-of-house-with considerably less boxes: People Sound flew main arrays of just 12 X-Line (10x Xvls & 2x Xvlt) per side. The FOH system was managed via a NetMax N8000 matrix controller and powered via Dynacord PowerH 2500 remote-control amplifiers, all running IRIS-Net software.
Though suitably loud, the sound was exceptionally clean, thanks to the FIR-Drive presets in the RCM-26 modules loaded into the PowerH amps powering the FOH system. Three delay towers with XLC-127DVX arrays covered the crowd deep into the park; 20 Xsubs per side at FOH were ample to provide low-end punch all the way to the back of the venue.
