Middletown, OH (October 5, 2005)–Tritech Light and Sound, a Middletown, Ohio sound contractor recently added to its complement of SPL-td1 loudspeakers from Sound Physics Labs, upping the count by six to bring the total inventory to 18.
“We’ve been using the 12 original td1s for four years, and we realized that we needed more,” said owner John Hutton. “When you need to do events that have large crowds, like the King Biscuit Jazz Festival I attended, where that was the setup for a crowd of about 7,000, you simply need that many loudspeakers to do the job.”
“The td1 has been a very reliable speaker for us. It does what they say it will do,” Hutton said. “They really throw the sound. Line arrays are made for long-throw applications, but you have to apply many rules to achieve the correct configuration and optimum performance,” Hutton says. “From a practical standpoint, if you’re not schooled in that and you’re in a hurry those things don’t get done. It’s all about how you set up a line array. If you don’t do it right they don’t work right. With the td1, you ground stack or fly them, get some basic visual alignment and you achieve great results.”
With six more in hand, Hutton is gearing up to handle more and larger live sound work, and said upping the td1 count will give him more flexibility and access to more work. He’s even toying with the idea of adding more down the line.
