New York (February 20, 2007)–Hispanic gospel artist Alex Campos recently recorded a live DVD and CD at the Iglesia Filadelfia Puente Largo in Bogota, Colombia; for the show, FOH engineer Alvaro Llano, who also runs an audio consulting/contracting company in Bogota that specializes in the HOW market, used Adamson SpekTrix line arrays to cover the 1,000-seat audience. The final set-up consisted of four SpekTrix 5 degree tops and three SpekTrix subs all powered by Lab.gruppen and processed with XTA 428 Drive DSPs.
Hispanic gospel artist Alex Campos recently recorded a live DVD and CD; Adamson SpekTrix loudspeakers were used for the show.”Using SpekTrix allows Latin music, which is rich in percussions and ethnic instruments that need a lot of headroom, to pass the peaks and transients generated by such instruments,” said Llano, “but it’s also important to mention the warm mids in it that enhance vocals and the richness of the highs without them adding any harsh colorations. It’s basically a very powerful and natural sounding system for any church. It’s incredibly intelligible, yet very musical, and you can count on it if you need it to rock!”
The mix position was centered around a Yamaha M7CL digital console used for FOH and monitors, supplemented by a Yamaha DM1000 to provide additional inputs. On stage, performers hear themselves via 16 Shure PSM600 personal monitor systems with E3, E5 and Westone ES3 ear buds. Mics on hand included Shure, Newman, AKG, Audio-Technica, M-Audio and Countryman, and Shure UR4 wireless systems were in use.
Average SPL for the show at mix position, which stood at about 75 feet from stage, was at 104dB (C Weighted) with controlled peaks going up to 110 dB. Assisting Llano at FOH was Mauricio Vilar, son of Cesar Vilar of C. Vilar Ltda, a long-time Adamson Yaxis partner who provided the system for the recording.
