Sunrise, FL (October 20, 2006)–Thousands of music fans and partiers turn out every year for the annual Broward Caribbean Carnival is a vibrant feast for the eyes and ears that attracts tens of thousands of revelers from around the globe. Held last week in Markham Park, Sunrise, FL, this year’s festival celebrated Caribbean music and culture, and one float added to the revelry with a huge mobile Dynacord Cobra system supplied by Drummer Boy Sound (DBS) of Miami.
Dynacord boxes, ready to help this carnival float sting like a bee.”This was our debut at a South Florida Carnival event,” Harold Cummings of DBS reported, “and we wanted to make a really strong first impression in front of the 80,000-strong party.” To do this, DBS pooled its Cobra-2 and Cobra-4 systems, creating an all-Dynacord rig comprised of 24 Cobra PWH subs, a dozen Cobra-2 TOP, four Cobra-4 TOP and a pair of Cobra-4 FAR boxes.
All the boxes were stacked neatly on the back of a 48-foot trailer, saving space for the the 300 dancers on and around the float moving to the sounds of the onboard Trinidadian drum band and pro DJs.
“Though there was some serious competition,” said Cummings, “with 14 other trailers pumping out some serious sound, the Cobra really stood out–we had an edge that was tangible in terms of the crowd response when we rolled by. We were thumping!” The system was powered and processed by dedicated Dynacord Cobra drive racks (a total of eight Dynacord L2400 amplifiers and four Dynacord DSP244 processors) and mixed on a Dynacord CMS1000 console, making this the only complete, single brand system heard at the event.
