Bay Dreams festival calls in NZ Sound Reinforcement

New Zealand:

NZ Sound Reinforcement has deployed JBL VTX A12 and A8 line array systems at the annual Bay Dreams music festival at Mount Maunganui. The event saw live performances from Cardi B and Tash Sultana to Rich the Kid.

‘The new JBL VTX A-Series systems have provided an amazing experience for all involved, from the artists to the spectators,’ said Ray Ward, owner of NZ Sound Reinforcement. ‘The systems have shown impressive coverage outdoors, providing a very smooth and natural top-end. We look forward to providing incredible sound for upcoming summer festivals and international artists making their way to New Zealand in the coming months. We thank organisers Pato Alvarez and Mitch Lowe for putting on another sold-out masterpiece.’

‘We are blown away, Bay Dreams was pretty epic,’ added Brenda Ward, co-owner at NZ Sound Reinforcement. ‘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.’

NZ Sound deployed a complete JBL Professional audio system for the second stage, featuring 24 VTX A12 line array loudspeakers as mains. A total of 18 compact VTX A8 line array loudspeakers provided wide, even coverage as side-fills for the crowd. NZ Sound selected eight VTX F12 12-inch bi-amplified loudspeakers as in-fills and 24 VTX G28 subwoofers. 

On stage, NZ Sound deployed 16 JBL VTX M20 and four VTX M22 professional stage monitors. Two VT4883 subwoofers provided an extended bass response as drum subs. NZ Sound used VTX F35 3-way enclosures and G28 subwoofers as side-fill monitors for more even, balanced coverage onstage.

The system was powered by Crown V-Rack amplifier racks, equipped with four Crown iTech 3500 amplifiers for setup simplicity. JBL’s Line Array Calculator allowed NZ Sound quickly and easily to configure the system, while JBL’s HiQnet Performance Manager software offered simple system management and control.

‘Performance Manager and Line Array Calculator helped save time and energy as we were able to pre-configure settings and system alignment before the event,’ said Tim Robertson, tour sound manager, JPRO, who provided technical support and system design for the event. ‘System predictions have been very accurate and only minor tweaks were needed once the system was loaded in and set up.’

‘We are extremely pleased with our association with NZ Sound Reinforcement, which has helped A12 loudspeakers become one of the most requested systems on tour riders worldwide,’ said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP and general manager at Harman Professional Solutions, APAC. ‘The new JBL VTX A12 is a complete tour sound solution that offered the perfect combination of sound quality and power for Bay Dreams.’
