New York (June 1, 2010)–Backline rental and entertainment services specialists Studio Instrument Rentals (SIR) recently added an Electro-Voice XLD line array loudspeaker system to the pro audio inventory at its New York office.
Comprising 16 XLD281s and four Xsubs, all powered by six Tour Grade TG7 amplifiers equipped with RCM-26 DSP modules for IRIS-Net remote control and supervision, the system debuted at a party held in SIR’s own event space.
“This is similar to the kind of ballroom-sized venues in which the system will often be used,” said Baker Lee, Audio Production Manager at SIR New York. “We flew the arrays from two columns on either side of the stage along one side of the room; when we walked the room, we didn’t lose any coverage at all. The 120° horn helps us cover these kinds of venues while keeping hardware to a minimum.
