NZ Sound Reinforcement calls on VTX A Series

New Zealand:

NZ Sound Reinforcement recently boosted its rental inventory with an investment of JBL VTX A Series loudspeakers, made through distributor JPro. The solutions, including VTX A12 and VTX A8 line array elements, were deployed throughout the New Zealand summer for several high profile gigs, such as the Bay Dreams festival held on the North Island’s Mount Maunganui and Nelson on the South Island.

‘We are blown away; Bay Dreams was pretty epic,’ said NZ Sound co-owner Brenda Ward. ‘The JBL VTX A12 and A8 systems have performed beyond our expectations – they sound amazing. JBL certainly helped the artists to put on some of their best performances and the crowd loved it.’

For Bay Dreams, NZ Sound deployed 24 VTX A12 line array loudspeakers on the main hang and 18 A8 cabinets on side hangs, while 24 VTX G28 subwoofers provided low end coverage. In-fills comprised eight VTX F12 12-inch biamplified enclosures. On the stage were 16 VTX M20 and four VTX M22 tour monitors for DJ and drum wedges. A pair of VT4883 subwoofers were used for drum subs with side-fill from two VTX F35 enclosures and a pair of G28 subs. Crown V-Racks with iTech 3500 amplifiers provided the power needed for the setup and JBL HiQnet Performance Manager software offered management and control. JBL’s Line Array Calculator was used during set up.

Set up was quick, as it needed to be with such tight deadlines between venues. ‘This is thanks to the VTX A Series new packaging, travel carts and world-leading rigging system, which is far more efficient for transport and set up,’ explained JPro’s Tim Robertson, who was on hand to provide technical support for the event.

‘The new JBL systems have provided an amazing experience for all involved, from the artists and organisers, to the spectators,’ added Ray Ward, NZ Sound co-owner. ‘The systems have shown impressive coverage outdoors, providing a very smooth and natural top end.’
