Front-of-house engineer Brent Rawlings is relying on a Britannia Row-supplied Turbosound Aspect system during Kings of Leon's European tour.

This is a five-way system and some of the bass speakers are being flown as part of that five-wide, five-deep to get some bottom end in the air. We're doing this because if you are sitting off to the side of the stage and you have a cluster of speakers pointing at you, which are treble, high-mid and low-mid, it might just be a little harsh. Adding in some bass means you can feel a little pressure on your chest from the other instruments. We are experimenting as much as possible to get rid of what we call ‘power alley’ — to make the bass nice for everybody, not just a select few. A big part of it is trying to keep everything going forward, as opposed to wrapping around itself and coming up on the stage and messing with the band. I am trying to shake the body of the person that is in the back of the arena without affecting the band.
