Electro-Voice sound rocks 80,000 in Bogota, Colombia

People Sound of Bogota, Colombia recently deployed their new Electro-Voice X-Line sound system for the huge “Nuestra Tierra de La Mega� concert in Bogota, hosted by radio station La Mega in the city’s Simon Bolivar Park and attended by over 80,000 people.

Dozens of rock acts performed over the course of the day, putting the mighty X-Line through its paces in the 300-meter deep venue. Whereas main arrays of 20 boxes per side are the norm for concert events in Simon Bolivar Park, X-Line impressed by providing more output—115dBA at front-of-house—with considerably less boxes: People Sound flew main arrays of just 12 X-Line (10x Xvls & 2x Xvlt) per side. The FOH system was managed via a NetMax N8000 matrix controller and powered via Dynacord PowerH 2500 remote-control amplifiers, all running IRIS-Net software.

Though suitably loud, the sound was exceptionally clean, thanks to the FIR-Drive presets in the RCM-26 modules loaded into the PowerH amps powering the FOH system. Three delay towers with XLC-127DVX arrays covered the crowd deep into the park; 20 Xsubs per side at FOH were ample to provide low-end punch all the way to the back of the venue.
