New York (January 2, 2007)–Women’s rights are an issue the world over, as demonstrated recently with a Women’s Day Event held at Kingsmead Cricket Stadium in Durban, located on the eastern coast of South Africa. Kingston Sound supplied stage production, lighting and sound, using its new JBL VerTec VT4888 line array enclosures to provide audio to thousands of women in attendance.
The system at the Women’s Day Event was comprised of 16 VerTec VT4888 line array elements and eight VT4880 line array subwoofers (eight VT4888s and four VT4880s per side). Additionally, 12 VRX932 portable line array elements were used as side fills. The system was powered by Crown I-Tech amplifiers.
After a decade servicing live bands and cultural music festivals in KwaZulu Natal (KZN), Brett Kingsland, owner/manager of Kingston Sound, decided to invest in new sound reinforcement gear. “It was our integral understanding of loudspeaker system and cabinet design that led us to the JBL VerTec system,” Kingsland said. ” VerTec is a new way of looking at PA systems. Lighter weight arrays, with fewer boxes, can provide more output power with one of the smoothest, flattest frequency response curves in the industry.”
