Brooklyn, NY (January 27, 2010)—Buzz about your venue? Good. Buzz in your venue's PA? Bad. Avoiding the latter is Live @ Shea Stadium, an “interactive recording studio/DIY venue/all ages show space” whose gear includes QSC Audio HPR Loudspeakers.
Featuring acts that typically play makeshift venues, the buzzed-about Live @ Shea Stadium provides touring bands and local artists who cannot normally afford proper recording a chance to document their live set free of charge. The venue uses little to no outboard gear, and the 16 x 8-channel snake is plugged directly into the Mackie Onyx (whose FireWire output enables Live @ Shea Stadium to record all of its shows), which is then rerouted to a Yamaha EMX board.
Without fancy microphones and digital signal processing, the QSC HPR Series PA, consisting of two HPR153i three-way full range cabinets, augmented with a single QSC Audio HPR181i powered sub, delivers audio throughout the fledgling performance space. As a plus, the speakers have proven durable against the gamut of small venue perils: crowd surfers, beer spills, power outages, and so forth.
