New York (March 26, 2009)–Firehouse Productions will purchase 100 Crown I-Tech 12000HD amplifiers for its tour sound projects.
Firehouse has provided sound for some of the music’s biggest acts, including Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, and Hannah Montana. It has also handled major television and live events, including Live Earth, the MTV VMAs, and VH-1 Storytellers.
“Firehouse is a clear leader in the live sound industry,” stated Brian Divine, marketing director for tour sound at Crown. “They have been a long time user of Crown and we have confidence I-Tech HD will be a major asset to their business for years to come. We value long-term relationships with industry leaders such as Firehouse and seeing them choose I-Tech HD is a validation of the efforts of our team to produce the best amplifier in the world.”
“We are proud to be a long time user of Crown because of the consistent support we have received from them over the years,” stated Mark Dittmar, lead sound and integration engineer for Firehouse Productions. “Knowing they are 100 percent behind us was a key reason for us to make the move to I-Tech HD. So far, working with this amplifier for just a short period of time, I must say the sound is stunning. The sound quality and power have really shocked us.”
I-Tech HD features a new user-inspired DSP engine co-developed with BSS called OMNIDRIVEHD. The new processing engine features Linear Phase FIR filters and a new suite of limiters called LevelMAX. Harman HiQnet System Architect mirrors the typical browser navigation interface to provide tour sound and contracting professionals with a familiar interface to access a host of power configuration and control functions.
