Kiss performed through JBL
VerTec line arrays at a recent
Show in Venezuela.
Venezuela (May 13, 2009)–Grupo Zonico supplied JBL VerTec line arrays as part of the audio system for a recent concert featuring legendary rock band Kiss in Venezuela.
A stop on the “Kiss 35 Alive World Tour,” the show was staged at the 10,000-seat Estacionamiento de la Rinconada outdoor venue in Caracas. Grupo Zonico of Edo Miranda, Venezuela supplied audio equipment as specified by US-based Clair Global, which is currently handling worldwide sound requirements for KISS including the Latin American tour leg.
Grupo Zonico first added VerTec to its rental inventory in 2006 with a purchase of 16 VT4888 midsize line array elements. Hugo Morillo, Grupo Zonico’s director, remarked, “The performance of our new VT4889-1 system for the Kiss concert was excellent, and both the system engineer and FOH mix engineer for the band were satisfied. We were very pleased, as VerTec proved once again that it has the characteristics we require for use on such demanding entertainment events.”
For Kiss, Grupo Zonico provided a total of 32 JBL VT4889-1 full size line array elements for the main system. Eight VT4888DP powered midsize line array elements were used as supplemental front fill speakers, while VT4887ADP powered compact line arrays were in use for onstage side fill monitors.
Grupo Zonico’s JBL VerTec system is powered by Crown I-Tech power amplifiers, and signal processing is achieved through the dbx 4800 Loudspeaker Management System loaded with JBL’s new V4 DSP presets. Harman Professional’s HiQnet System Architect software is used for remote control and monitoring. The company is supported and serviced by MEDIA CA, distributor for Harman Professional products in Venezuela.
