JBL VERTECÂ® line arrays are heading up the PA system on Conan Oâ€™Brienâ€™s current â€œLegally Prohibited From Being Funny On Television Tour,â€? with Audio Analysts providing live sound reinforcement for the production. The 30-city tour kicked off on April 12 in Eugene, Oregon and will culminate June 14 in Atlanta, Georgia.
The live stage production is similar to a television variety show, with many elements from â€œLate Night With Conan Oâ€™Brien,â€? including sidekick Andy Richter and members of the showâ€™s band. The tour also includes video bits, musical and comic performances and cameo appearances by celebrities, while Oâ€™Brien himself performs music throughout the production.
Before shipping out the VERTEC line arrays to Los Angeles for initial rehearsals, Audio Analysts fine-tuned the entire system at its headquarters in Colorado Springs, Colorado. â€œThe reliable performance of the VERTEC line arrays enabled us to pre-design Conanâ€™s touring system with
confidence,â€? said Mario Leccese, VP of Operations for Audio Analysts. â€œAs a longtime VERTEC owner, we are confident that we can achieve even coverage and controllable sound in any environment.â€?
The main PA system consists of 24 JBL VT4889 fullsize line array loudspeakers flown in left and right columns, 12 ground-stacked JBL VT4880 fullsize, arrayable subwoofers and four JBL VT4887 compact line array elements placed as front fills. Seventeen Crown I-Tech 4000 and 11 I-Tech 8000 amplifiers power the system, which is configured via Harman HiQnetâ„¢ System Architectâ„¢ software for remote control and monitoring.
The tour is playing mostly in soft-seat, proscenium environments, with capacity crowd levels ranging from 1,500 to 6,500 seats. â€œThe VERTEC system is easy to set up and configure in different types of venues, which also makes traveling across the nation and setting up each show a much easier task,â€? Leccese said. â€œTo date, we have received only positive feedback on the system and the tour has been a tremendous success.â€?
