Live Sound Engineering

26/04/08

We were booked to provide live sound equipment, engineering and lighting.

We supplied half of our brand new EAW rig. The half rig is powered by one Lab Gruppen fp6400 and 2 x Crown XTi4000 amps.

The monitoring rig consists of 4 x Martin Audio monitor wedges and an EAW drum fill – all powered by Crown. 

Most EAW stacks I have seen consist of two cabinets – the SB850 subs (like ours) and the KF850 tops. The KF850’s have a single 15″ driver with a 10″ and 1 & 1/4″ CD.

Our 3 box stack has a 10″ / 1 & 1/4 ” top box (AS490) and a dual 12″ bass/mid box (AS422e) which really delivers between 70 – 400 hZ.  The bass/mid is crisp & punchy and the overall detail is spectacular.

On this gig we supplied an Allen & Heath GL2400 desk, Drawmer / BSS outboard and Shure/AKG mics.

For lighting we supplied 8 x 500 par 64 cans, 2 x V~R-8 scans and 2 x VRX Gladiatots, Martin Jem smoke and Atomic 3000 strobe.

The EAW rig absolutely blew our socks off – no wonder the biggest and best toruring companies in the world rely on EAW every time. 

We would say this…. but honestly this is the best sounding rig we have heard – definitely the best live sound rig available for hire in Bristol.
