The principals of Big House Sound with their Adamson rig.Austin, TX (August 26, 2008)–SR provider Big House Sound Inc. (BHS) recently added 16 Adamson M15 monitors, a dozen Adamson T21 subs, 24 Y10s and 24 Y18s to its already extensive inventory of Adamson products.
BHS has been providing sound services in Austin, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, and communities along Interstate 35 since it was founded in 1991 by Roy Kircher and Rod Nielsen. The very first sound system the company purchased was an 8-box Adamson MH225 and S218 system, which today consists of 48 MH225, B2 and S218s which are still in use today.
Having never owned another manufacturer’s box, Kircher is quick to comment on BHS’ allegiance to Adamson speakers: “When Rod and I first got together, I was out on the road and heard an Adamson MH225 rig–a small system of maybe three stacks a side. It sounded great! The midrange blended so well with the hi’s that even when you stood 8 feet in front of the system, it was like smooth wall of sound. I think the mid driver was the selling point for me. I mixed on a lot of systems, but the Adamson mids jumps out at you and that bandwidth never runs out of headroom. To date, we haven’t come across a system that can keep up with the Adamson mid-range.”
BHS’s Adamson inventory has grown significantly over the years; adding SXs and a RA system in 1998, and then upgrading to the Y-Axis Line in 2000. Now with the added T-21 subs and M15 monitors, the inventory includes practically every Adamson box ever made, and the BHS shop could almost be considered an Adamson museum.
