Toronto, Canada (May 11, 2007)–Jeff Healey may be best known for his blues-flavored hits during the 1980s like “Angel Eyes,” but these days, the famed blind guitarist is the owner of Jeff Healey’s Roadhouse in Toronto.
The hot spot, which just opened in December, has a 700 capacity, and all of those visitors hear every note every night through an Adamson SpekTrix PA, part of a house system designed by Steve Towers.
The Roadhouse house sound engineer, as well as Healey’s FOH Engineer, Debbie Murphy, mixes on a 48 channel Yamaha PM4000, and for monitor console an ATI Paragon PII does the trick. The Roadhouse’s new sound system is comprised of a pair of Adamson SpekTrix 5 degree boxes, flown with a single 15 degree SpekTrix Wave as a downfill on each side.
Two LX10s are used as outfills and two SX Subs per side, provide all the necessary bass. On the stage, six Clair Bros 12AM and a single ML18 drum sub provide monitoring. Lab.gruppen fP3400 and fP6400 power the system and XTA handles the processing.
