Juanes is particularly big in South America, where he plays at big outdoor soccer stadiums pretty much all the time. The challenge at those locations is to have a powerful yet crystal-clear P.A. response even when many times we have to supplement what we carry with us with local P.A. add-ons. We would have mains and side arrays, maybe a 270-degree hang, flown subs, four to five main ground sub stacks, and two to six delay towers with distributed sub stacks, depending on the venue. [Front-of-house engineer Robert “Cubby” Colby] runs subs through an aux send and sometimes we have three different aux sends for the different subs zones. Phase is very important to us as we carry a heavy-loaded sub-bass P.A., but one of our goals is to have the right balance all throughout the bass guitar range. At certain points, we spend a lot of time playing a bass guitar track through the P.A., making sure all the notes had the right presence at different places in the stadium. Cubby is very focused not only in having a powerful P.A., but also an accurate one in the low and sub-low range. He looks forward to a system with enough dynamics to get the impact he likes but also very clean all throughout the spectrum. The d&b J Series is really up to the task, and we have been using it with great results at many different locations.
