New York (August 5, 2005)–Together this summer for the first time in 29 years, pop/rock artists Loggins and Messina are on the road with On Stage Audio, which is supporting the concert audio with a JBL VerTec line array system.
OSA’s president, Mario Educate, is handling front-of-house engineering duties. “Loggins and Messina demand a very clear sound, like a large stereo system,” he said. “Volume is not as important as articulation of vocals, and musical clarity.”
OSA’s setup on the road consists of 36 VerTec VT4889s and 20 VT4880 subwoofers. The system is fully powered by Crown I-Tech 6000 amplifiers. Supplementing the VerTec system are JBL VRX932LA portable line array speakers. The VRX932LAs are arranged two on each side for side fills, with another six in the center for individual front fills.
“We wanted to keep the total sound consistent with the VerTec arrays, and the VRX speakers are so lightweight and keep a low profile, in addition to having a great sound,” Educate said, adding, “We’re one of the largest owners of JBL VerTec line array boxes anywhere–we have over 500 assorted VerTec pieces. They sound terrific, and the support we get from the manufacturer has been a huge help.”
