Audio Visual Live Increases Commitment to VUE by Adding an Al-12 Line Array System

LANCASTER, CA, SEPTEMBER 16, 2016 – With more than 30 years of experience providing full-service audio visual services for live event production in Southern California and throughout the United States, Dennis Layton is best known for his role handling HBO Boxing. As President of Audio Visual Live (AVL), Layton prides himself on delivering state-of-the-art, custom solutions for his clients. As AVL’s VUE inventory increases, Layton’s need for sub-rentals for larger events has been reduced with the addition of VUE’s al-12 Large Format Line Array System. Layton’s VUE inventory now numbers more than 60 elements.

Layton took delivery of his al-12 system in time for The Second Annual Johnson Smooth Jazz Festival held this past June in Lancaster, California. The festival featured live performances by Mindi Abair, Vincent Ingala and Javier Colon, and was an ideal opportunity for Layton to introduce his new VUE System to his many clients.

“VUE Audiotechnik manufactures some of the best speakers on the market and any new VUE product release has my attention,” says Layton. “Adding the al-12 to my existing al-Class inventory was a no brainer. The full sized beryllium infused line array system scales well to the needs of my clients whether a 1,500-person casino show or a 10,000 person live and broadcast sports event.”

At The Second Annual Johnson Smooth Jazz Festival, Layton accompanied his al-12s with hs-28 Dual 18-inch ACM Subwoofers. “Due to expected high winds in the area, we decided to ground stack the system, and it performed flawlessly,” adds Layton. “The model in EASE Focus translated perfectly to the real world, and the al-12’s provided superior coverage and SPL throughout venue.” To complete the system, Layton deployed a-Class Advanced Passive Systems as stage monitors.

“The VUE system is one of the best I have ever mixed on,” says Spenser Bishop, FOH Engineer for Vincent Ingala. “This system sounds better than other rigs that I have used in the past.” John Schimpf, FOH engineer for Mindi Abair concurred, stating, “The VUE system does exactly what it’s supposed to do, sound great!”

Before the end of the year, Audio Visual Live, Inc. is committed to adding even more al-Class products to better serve their growing customer base and larger venues.
