Hundreds of south Florida philanthropists returned to Miami on Nov. 1 for the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Centerâ€™s bi-annual â€œIn the Garden of Dreamsâ€? gala, to help raise money for cancer research. This yearâ€™s elegant event, â€œIn the Garden of Dreams 2â€?, was held at the Miami Beach Convention Center. R&B star Ruby Baker was the main attraction.
Also returning for the gala was Miami-based Drummer Boy Sound (DBS) and their Dynacord Cobra sound system. Harold Cummings, founder and CEO of DBS, was happy to provide his services to Tropics Entertainment and the U of M for the event.
To address the challenges of the larger space, DBS used a Dynacord Cobra-2 system, providing wide, deep coverage and superb full bandwidth intelligibility in a very compact package. DBS often deploys their Cobra system as a ground stacked line array; in this application, individual boxes were flown from the overhead trussing above the centrally positioned stage, proving the Cobraâ€™s versatility once again. Six Cobra Subs were ground-stacked around the stage on all four sides. The system also featured Electro-Voice QRx,Xi, and ZX1 loudspeakers as fills and monitors, powered by EV P3000RL and CP2200 power amplifiers.
â€œOur Cobra-2 was a perfect fit for the hall,â€? says Cummings. â€œIt provided warm, clean sound for every seat in the house. The dedicated amp and processing in the Cobra drive rack ensured optimal performance, while keeping a nice tidy footprint.â€?
To monitor the systemâ€™s numerous video feeds, DBS placed a Midas Siena at Front of House. â€œEvery component in the signal chain was of the highest quality,â€? Cummings adds, â€œadding finesse to this very classy event.â€?
