New York (January 8, 2007)–They say that some things, like death and taxes, are inevitable. On a more positive note, so is the annual trek by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, which fields two tours that simultaneously play arenas around the country, bringing their unique mix of ’80s pop metal and Clement Clarke Moore-style holiday sentiment to millions of people. Another given is that db Sound provides the TSO’s audio, always doing so with 64-box EV X-Array systems.
EV X-Array PAs help bring holiday cheer to the TSO’s fans.Todd Johnson of db Sound explained why X-Array keeps working for the TSO: “The tour is now no different from a world-class rock tour–in fact, they do far more dates than most big tours, travel with a fleet of semi trucks, and sold out Madison Square Garden. The TSO gets bigger every year, and EV sound has certainly helped make that happen. For both tours, we use X-Array boxes in conjunction with X-Line Xsubs, all powered by P3000 amplifiers.
“The show is big in every way, and with a rotating cast of multiple singers and instrumental soloists, has a broad dynamic range–from 80 dB to 105 dB, all across a wide range of musical styles. X-Array has been with the TSO since it was playing in small theatres, and it sounds just as good in the arenas. We simply added more boxes as the show grew, allowing us consistent sound quality from year to year without compromise. X-Array is also versatile in that it can be literally wrapped around a corner if necessary, which also helps when playing to 240-degree seating; no matter what size and shape the venue, every seat gets the full sonic experience.”
