Powering a sound system for a concert with screaming fans is never an easy task. Powering a sound system with screaming fans and dozens of motorcycle engines revving at the Red Bull X-Fighters Motocross in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil is even more difficult. Showcasing the power and sound quality of Crownâ€™s I-Tech amplifiers, Brazilian sound reinforcement company, Loudness SonorizaÃ§Ã£o selected 60 Crown I-Tech amps to power a JBL line array loudspeaker system for the motocross event in Rio.
This one day event highlights riders from around the world, while they perform dare-devil stunts for cheering fans, all the while, their motorcycle engines revving and quickly throttling up to build up the speed necessary to launch themselves 30, 40 or even 50 feet in the air.
â€œWhen we selected Crownâ€™s I-Tech line, we knew that these amps would not only be able to deliver the power necessary to overcome the incredible sound of the motorcycles, but the clarity to allow the fans to hear the announcements,â€? said MÃ¡rcio Pilot, Director of Loudness SonorizaÃ§Ã£o.
For the event Loudness SonorizaÃ§Ã£o provided 48 Crown IT-8000 and 12 Crown IT-4000 amplifiers. They powered JBL VERTEC VT4889 loudspeakers. Pilot chose the Crown Amplifiers for sound quality, internal DSP, reliability, and ease of installation. â€œCrown is recognized worldwide as the best amplifiers you can buy for sound reinforcement, tour sound and fixed installations,â€? stated Pilot.
Available in I-T4000, I-T6000 and I-T8000 iterations, the Harman HiQnetâ„¢-compatible I-Tech family has become the tour sound professionalâ€™s de-facto standard amplifier by matching unsurpassed Class-I power, light weight and ease of use. Onboard DSP provides a wide array of signal processing functionality, significantly reducing the need for rack components and rack wiring. Onboard DSP features 24- bit, 96 kHz A/D and D/A converters that reduce DSP noise for studio-quality processing and quieter overall performance. I-Tech features peak voltage and RMS power limiting for speaker protection and global power supply to deliver maximum power worldwide! The model boasts a front panel LCD for diagnostics and preset selection, ensuring fast and easy system setup but also front panel lockout for enhanced safety.
