El Cajon, CA (March 3, 2006)–The Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation El Cajon must like to rock, if its Sycuan Showcase Theatre in the Sycuan Resort and Casino is any indication. Known throughout the San Diego area for bringing in popular talent like Cheap Trick, B.B. King, Michael McDonald, Smokey Robinson and others, the venue is a hit despite its intimate 500-seat capacity.

The centerpoint to the system is a 48-channel, 32-bus Soundcraft Series FIVE Monitor desk, which is now located on the right side of the theatre’s stage. J&E’s Jaire Lopez explained, “They had previously been renting a 24-bus FIVE Monitor, which they really liked; however, they wanted to increase their number of stereo personal monitor mixes up to 16, so the 32-bus version was perfect for them.
Aside from the Soundcraft monitor board, J&E also installed several other sister Harman International company products, including a BSS Audio Soundweb 9088iis, which is routinely applied across four of the monitor mixes, and 13 Crown I-Tech 4000 power amplifiers with onboard DSP to drive and process the venue’s stage wedges.
