Electro-Voice's classy new replacement for the classic Entertainer System, the silky smooth sounds of the new EV Entertainer® can be heard emanating from Hemingway's Downtown, a sophisticated Greensboro drinking establishment, this weekend and every weekend. Smaller and more powerful than the original, the Entertainer is destined to remain the preferred choice of systems where simply nothing but the best will do.
Earth Day brought yet another first for CareySound. The music for the UNC-G celebration was completely powered by the sun. CareySound provided the audio and Kirby Wilkins, owner of Dun By The Sun, provided the power for the event with solar power. If your next event calls for a little help from the sun you can contact Kirby by calling (336) 349-5948.
The event was held in five different venues throughout the Chapel Hill community. John Carey (he comes by his 'pedal to the metal' mixing technique honestly) engineered the performances at the Nightlight venue with a modified version of our Club 300 rental system. The system featured the EV Zx5 fullrange loudspeakers with EV Qrx 118 subs on mains and EV Zx1's for monitors all powered with EV CP3000S amplifiers. As for the performance of the system for the two day torture-fest, let's just say, well be back again next year - by popular demand!
One of our dear customers, Cloverdale Church of the Living God on Elm street in High-Point, met with tragedy a little over a week ago when an electrical short caused a fire that destroyed their church building along with nearly everything inside. The congregation will continue to meet in their youth and daycare center next door. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Pastor Perry and his congregation as they struggle with this loss.
If you would like to make a donation to the church it can be sent to Cloverdale Church of the Living God, care of High Point Bank and Trust. The banks address is address is 2758 South Main Street in High Point.
The two, 888 pound, eight-box XLc127+ hangs were powered with 10-EV CP3000S amplifiers and controlled with 2-EV Dx38 system processors. An incredibly even ± 1.5 db sound field was achieved throughout the sanctuary with a 110 peak SPL.
Their quest was to build a system that would have up-time that is as good as their analogue gear. Who can count all of the times they have had to recover their crashed computer much less their fancy new digital console toy. MIDAS decided that if their system was to be used for live audio, IT HAS TO WORK. There are no do-overs in live audio. Thats one tall order.
So they rolled up their collective sleeves and built a monster. Now they had to put it to the test. They gathered up 10 eager volunteers to gang up on the system all at once. Let's see, that's ten engineers times two hands each for a total of twenty hands all groping and grabbing everything they could put their hands on - live - real time - and guess what happened - the system didn't hiccup even once. As The Rock says, "Just Bring It!" Or as his defeated opponent says,"Submission!"
The XL8 not only has enough horsepower to take everything to the max, but room to spare at an amazing super-computer 48 GigaFlops (Gflop). For those of you that never were good at math thats 48,000 BILLION mathematical calculations per second. And as if that wasn't enough, the system is scalable.
Ok, I have to go take a break and catch my breath. More very soon. Stay tuned! DON'T TOUCH THAT DIAL!
