Eclipse Lighting & Sound Adds To EV InventoryLeading Canberra, Australia production company Eclipse Lighting and Sound recently added to their already impressive Electro Voice inventory with the purchase of an XLC 127DVX line array system.
The XLC‘s were supplemented with the purchase of EV X-Subs powered by Dynacord PowerH H5000 amplifiers. The system is controlled by existing Klark Teknik processing. The XLC system complements an existing inventory of X-Array cabinets and EV P & CP series amplifiers.
The system‘s debut deployment was as the mainstage PA for the Narooma Blues festival on the South Coast of NSW, featuring some of Australia‘s biggest acts. Systems engineer and live sound guru Chris ‘Doc‘ Shackleton was very impressed with the performance of the system, in particular the way it transports with purpose-designed dollies and covers.
Eclipse has since handled a number of high profile gigs with the new EV system, including the Canberra leg of Tropfest, an acclaimed short film festival featuring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, with a Heath Ledger tribute from Naomi Watts.
Eclipse director Chris Neal has been very happy with the performance of his Electro-Voice equipment over the years: “the support and service I get on the EV gear is just great, they‘re a great bunch of guys to deal with,” he says.

12x XLC 127 DVX (with fly brackets, AGCD adapters, on dollies with XLC covers)
