Clair Bros. Systems has just completed the installation of a new JBL Professional VerTec system at the Mississippi Ballroom of the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City. The new system, used onsite for the casino’s major shows, conventions and concerts, comprises 12 VT4888 mid-size line array enclosures and 12 VT4881 subwoofers, powered by Crown MA5002 Macrotech amplifiers.
“The proven acoustical performance of VerTec has allowed Clair Bros. and the Showboat Casino to construct arrays that are ideal for this application,” said Ted Leamy, director of engineered sound marketing at JBL Professional. “When the performance of your business enterprise is contingent on the performance of loudspeakers as working tools, there’s no safer bet than the power and versatility of JBL’s VerTec line. We are very pleased to partner with Clair Bros. to provide them with the components that help maintain the incredibly high standards they’ve set for themselves.”
“In the bid process we went through,” stated Jim Devenney, installation manager at Clair Bros., “The client stipulated VerTec in their equipment list. They had tried them as a rental before and liked the coverage and vocal articulation that the VerTec line has become known for.”
Clair Bros.’ proprietary wedges and drum monitors and sidefills featuring JBL component transducers round out the loudspeaker contingent.
