Sydney’s EventSound had a busy summer with their sound equipment seen all over the city at such events as Sydney Running Festival, Jazz in the Gardens and even Prince William at the Block.
The versatile and reliable JBL VRX Compact Line Array system owned by EventSound made life easier for the crew on all of these events. The RedBull Junior Surf Pro held on Cronulla beach featured a line up of bands such as Urthboy, Children Collide and DJ’s, and culminated in an award ceremony hosted by surf legend Mick Fanning.
EventSound were contracted through production manager Peter Pollard to supply the audio and lighting for the temporary beach stage as well as links into the VIP Marquee.
Keith Clarkson, managing director of EventSound explained that they required a sound system with a good throw distance as they needed to get even coverage down the beach. The JBL VRX system was perfect for this. Since purchasing the JBL VRX sound equipment they have found its’ versatility to be great and this was one of the occasions where it was put to task as a large scale concert box.
Six of the VRX 932LAP boxes were flown along with a couple of VRX918 subs and two more 932 boxes were used as ground fill on top of four a side VRX 918 subwoofers.
Ten JBL SRX 712M monitors were used for stage foldback with Sidefills and Drumfills all powered by Crown XTI 4000 amplifiers
Soundcraft GB Series mixing consoles were used at both FOH and Monitor positions whilst all Radio microphones were Shure UHF-R series.
JBL sound equipment is available from Jands .
