The five-day Country USA music festival in Oshkosh, Wisconsin benefitted from PCS’ new KUDO, SB28 and LA-RAK systems
PCS adds KUDO, SB28 and LA-RAK for new Entertainment Division
TEMPE, Arizona — Precise Corporate Staging (PCS) of Tempe, Arizona upped its L-ACOUSTICS product count in late-May with the addition of 24 KUDO enclosures, 24 SB28 subs and six LA-RAK touring amplifier racks. The systems were purchased, in part, to accommodate the busy summer festival schedule of PCS’ new Entertainment Division, which this year deploys systems and staging for Country USA and Rock USA in Oshkosh, Wisconsin and the legendary week-long Buffalo Chip in Sturgis, South Dakota.

“With 30 V-DOSC already in our inventory, we had enough boxes to do main PA hangs for most outdoor shows but previously had to cross-rent additional V-DOSC for outfill,” says PCS President David Stern. “This year we’ve switched over to KUDO for outfill, beefed up our subs to SB28, and gotten into LA8 amplified controllers for digital distribution as well as improved processing and control.”
In addition to being ideal for outdoor festivals and large arenas, KUDO also enables PCS, an L-ACOUSTICS US Certified Provider, to offer a system that is well suited to serve as a main PA for smaller venues. “We’re doing a lot of shows for casinos like Talking Stick here in Tempe and V-DOSC was simply too large and heavy for the room,” Stern notes. “We’ve flown six KUDO per side there for Los Lonely Boys, Sylvia Browne and Dwight Yoakam in the past few weeks and they worked great — plenty of horsepower and a nice flat EQ right from the start.”
