Kelowna, B.C., Canada (November 23, 2005)–Event support company SW Audio Visual of B.C., Canada, has recently upgraded its touring sound inventory by purchasing a JBL VT4888DP full-range line array system with supporting VT4882DP subwoofers.
According to Cal McCarthy, owner of SW Audio Visual, the reasoning behind choosing the VerTec DP Series system was twofold. “We discovered a great product that was light, powerful, sophisticated and rentable, which makes us more competitive in every aspect of our business,” McCarthy said. “Beyond the product’s features, however, we also chose VerTec because of the commitment JBL made to our company in supporting our growing needs and partnering with us to align our long-term business objectives with theirs.”
SW Audio Visual first put its new VerTec DP Series system to the test at Wakefest Kelowna 2005 on July 8-10, 2005. The event, Canada’s largest wakeboard music festival, featured live performances from De La Soul, Sweatshop Union and Comeback Kid. Held at Waterfront Park, SW Audio Visual required a high-output audio system to overcome the challenges posed by an outdoor venue
“Wakefest required a high-output but compact system, set up at the water’s edge, that covered the entire amphitheatre at a rather wide angle,” McCarthy noted. “The light weight of the VerTec DP system allowed us to gain the benefits of flying a high-output system whereas in the past, ground stacking was the only option.”
