Event Enterprises Adds the NEXO STM Sound to Kentucky Music Festival

BUENA PARK, Calif. (October 11, 2016)—The 13th Annual Merchants & Music Festival in Fort Thomas, Kentucky is an outdoor event that celebrates local area merchants featuring nationally acclaimed recording artists as well as other family activities. This year’s festival took place at the historic Tower Park Amphitheater on September 24th with entertainment by the Kentucky Headhunters, Brothers Osborne, Humming House, Sundy Best, Wildwood, and Tana Matz.

Event Enterprises of Cincinnati, OH provided NEXO speaker systems for the festival’s two stages. “The main stage consisted of nine boxes of NEXO STM Omni-purpose M28 loudspeakers per side with Vario Bumper rigging, a great speaker with a small footprint, states Event managing director, Grant Cambridge. It also provided the necessary throw and punch for the Top 40 Country and Southern Rock programming,” Cambridge said the amphitheater sits in a bowl with about a 30′ grade from the stage to the back with coverage of about 175′ of depth and 130′ of width necessary. The Vario Bumper had a +4 degree up-tilt on it to throw to the top of the bowl. The M28s were supplemented with 12 RS18 Ray Subs and four PS10s for immediate front and outfill coverage.  

The second stage PA was outfitted with a NEXO Alpha E system. “It was an efficient, great supplement for the amphitheater that needed a ground stacked system for festival bands “throw and go” schedule,” Cambridge says.

“The sound was exceptionally clear on both stages,” said Debbie Buckley, Renaissance Manager & Economic Director, City of Fort Thomas.
