Escondido, Calif.-based rental sound company Sound Image deployed a JBL VerTec line array system for Jimmy Buffett’s recent concerts, which took place at Boston’s Fenway Park. The system, providing smooth and even coverage for 35,000 audience members, demonstrated JBL’s reliability in outdoor stadium events.
A Sound Image crew headed by FOH mixer Rich Davis set up 80 2x15-inch full-size VT4889 line array elements and 40 VT4880 full-size arrayable subwoofers. For the system setup, Sound Image relied on supplemental VerTec equipment from regional owner Scorpio Sound (West Bridgewater, Mass.).
“There are only a few companies able to not just survive in the global concert industry, but grow and prosper over the decades,” observed David Scheirman, director of tour sound for JBL Professional. “Sound Image is one of those companies. With a staff of competent sound mixers who really know how to get it right for international artists, they also maintain a state-of-the-art rental system inventory to meet any concert or special event challenge. All of us at JBL Professional are honored that Sound Image relies on JBL VerTec line array systems for their most discriminating and valued clients.”
