New York (May 10, 2007)–Jägermeister has chosen a Peavey Versarray line array sound system and 207,000 watts of Crest Audio power for its traveling stage on this year’s upcoming Ozzfest tour. Housed in a 44-foot trailer that opens into a fully self-contained stage measuring 34 feet wide, 16 feet deep and 20 feet high, the Jägermeister Mobile Stage–the official second stage at Ozzfest 2007–will sport 24 flown Versarray 112 enclosures and a dozen Versarray 218 subwoofers. Performers on the stage will include Peavey endorsers The Showdown, Ankla and Daath.
“The Versarray line array system is truly amazing,” said Rick Zeiler, director of marketing and brand development at Jägermeister. “Producing a heavy rock concert can be difficult because there is so much going on in the music, but the Versarray solves that through incredible sonic articulation, consistency and a fully dynamic listening experience. We haven’t even begun the tour and already the sound engineers on Ozzfest are bragging about how good it sounds.”
The Jägermeister Mobile Stage is managed by eight Peavey VSX* 26 loudspeaker management systems and powered by 48 Crest Audio power amplifiers; among them are 18 CD3000 amps to power the 12″ speakers in the Versarray 112 enclosures and QW Series monitors, a dozen CD 2000 amps for the Versarray’s dual-ribbon drivers, and 18 Pro 9200 amps for the Versarray 218 subs. Also along for the ride will be Crest Audio mixing consoles for monitors and FOH. Peavey has also contributed backline in the form of Triple XXX guitar-amp stacks and Tour Series bass systems.
“Jagermeister has been kicking around this mobile-stage idea for a long time,” said Zeiler, “but without Peavey we couldn’t have done it. Peavey has supported the Jägermeister Music Tour since day one with amplifier backline, sound gear and sponsorships, and with this program, they’ve turned a huge dream of mine into reality.”
After the mobile stage’s Ozzfest run ends August 30 in West Palm Beach, Fla., the Jägermeister Mobile Stage will continue rocking at events with the National Hot Rod Association and others.
