Cape Town, South Africa (February 18 2015)—Cape Audio College has long taught students how to approach audio engineering, as it sports 52 multitrack recording studios, mixdown and editing suites and live sound work areas. Helping to ensure the school will teach students how to handle small- to mid-sized venue live audio events, the school recently purchased a JBL VRX loudspeaker system and Crown I-Tech HD Series amplifiers.
The school purchased six JBL VRX932LA 12-inch two-way line array systems, six VRX918S 18-inch high-power suspendable subwoofers and two VRXAF array frames, as well as four PRX715 15-inch 2-way full range speakers that are used for stage monitoring. The speakers are driven by four Crown I-Tech HD Series I-T9000 power amps running the V5 preset tunings for JBL line arrays.
“We are excited that the students will receive hands-on audio training with a professional product of the caliber of the JBL VRX900 Series,” said Dean Coull of South Africa HARMAN Professional distributors Wild & Marr. “The VRX Series is an extremely versatile line array lineup that offers high power handling and stunning audio quality with exceptional clarity, all in an affordable package.”
In addition to its use at Cape Town, the rig will be offered as an additional system for smaller stages at festival shows that take place around the Western Cape region of South Africa. The college’s students will run the sound system and manage its use during these events.
