Las Vegas, NV––Specializing in audio production, rentals and sales, The Wave recently added a dozen of Martin Audio’s popular WS218X subwoofers to its growing inventory.

Asked about the purchase, owner Scott Fisher responds, “We wanted additional low end reinforcement for live shows and DJ events and chose the Martin Audio WS218X because it’s a good sounding, high output subwoofer from a brand known and respected by engineers and audio people around the world. Getting these was a win-win all the way around.”

Scott also has a full Martin Audio monitor rig consisting of 14 x LE1200s, which he likes because “they’re rider friendly, work well and are very reliable.”

The first outing for the new subwoofers was a country concert at Drai’s Nightclub at the Cromwell Las Vegas and Casino featuring Texas artist Pat Green as headliner and opening act The Dirty River Boys.

As Scott explains, “the concert took place during National Finals Rodeo, a 10-day event when Las Vegas gets very country because the event sells out the Thomas and Mack Center which seats over 18,000 people.

“In terms of the show, everything went really well with the subs even though it was the first time out. The FOH engineers for both bands, Luke Wilbanks for the Dirty River Boys and Braxton Henry for Pat Green, were super happy. They thought everything sounded great.

“The guy in charge of sound at Drai’s, who usually prefers another brand of speakers, thought the WS218X’s sounded really good and tight. He we was so impressed that we already have other shows booked in the room.”

“After the show,” Scott concludes, “my systems tech, who was also very impressed, told me that we’d made a really good purchase. I knew the WS218X’s were going to perform well, but the overall reaction has been way more positive than I expected.”
