Kingston Sound recently supplied stage production, lighting and sound for the Women's Day Event held at Kingsmead Cricket Stadium in Durban, South Africa. The company used JBL VerTec VT4888 line array enclosures to provide high-fidelity audio to thousands of women who showed their support for women's rights.

"It was our integral understanding of loudspeaker system and cabinet design that led us to the JBL VerTec system," says Kingston owner/manager Brett Kingsland. "VerTec is a new way of looking at P.A. systems. Lighter weight arrays, with fewer boxes, can provide more output power with one of the smoothest, flattest frequency response curves in the industry."

The system at the Women's Day Event comprised 16 VerTec VT4888 line array elements and eight VT4880 line array subwoofers (eight VT4888s and four VT4880s per side). Additionally, 12 VRX932 portable line array elements were used as side fills. The system was powered by Crown I-Tech amplifiers.
