Called upon to ensure that rock legends Aerosmithâ€™s first concert in Venezuela was a resounding success, regional concert sound rental provider, Grupo Zonico deployed JBL VERTECÂ® line arrays to support the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers in Caracas. Based in Edo Miranda, Venezuela, Grupo Zonico has supplied the nationâ€™s top venues and highest-attended concerts with JBL loudspeaker systems since 2006.
To deliver the powerful, widely-known music of Aerosmith to a massive outdoor audience, Grupo Zonico supplied 30 VERTEC VT4889-1 full-size line array elements for the main left/right system, supported by 24 VT4880A Ultra Long Excursion 2×18-inch arrayable subwoofers. Twelve VT4888DP powered mid-size elements with DrivePackÂ® technology, developed in cooperation with Crown, were used for out fill arrays. In addition, four auxiliary towers each contained three VT4887ADP powered compact line array elements, in coordination with a fifth array of four VT4888DP powered midsize line array elements. Twenty-four VT4888DPâ€™s provided
the primary delay system in two towers of 12 each. The system was configured with Harman HiQnetâ„¢ System Architectâ„¢ software for remote control and monitoring.
â€œFor such a momentous concert, it was important for even the farthest, deepest rows of fans to be completely dialed in with the band,â€? said Hugo Morillo, Director, Grupo Zonico. â€œThe JBL VERTEC system has proven time after time, that it is 100 percent reliable and provides a great sound quality that is appreciated by the fans and, most importantly, the band. Aerosmithâ€™s top-quality performance through the VERTEC line arrays gives us another successful credit to provide our customers with this outstanding technology.â€?
â€œI was impressed with the service and standard of equipment from Grupo Zonico,â€? said Jim Ebdon, FOH mix engineer for Aerosmith. â€œThe JBL VERTEC system sounded very smooth and accurate, the coverage was excellent and the thump from the subs was phenomenal.â€?
