Gand's Nexo Geo S 12 rental system at the Paramount Theater added to the existing Geo S 12 system owned by the venue. Glenview, IL (February 27, 2012)—Gand Concert Sound (GCS) of Glenview, Illinois has added an 18-box Geo S12 system to its rental inventory.
“Yamaha brought in a road rig for a demo at the Viper Alley rock club in Lincolnshire, and not only did they like the system, our own crew was knocked out,” states Gary Gand, President, Gand Concert Sound. The new Gand Nexo system includes (16) Geo S1210 cabinets, two Geo S1230s, six Nexo NX4x4 amplifiers and four RS18 subwoofers.
“Beyond our extensive inventory of world-class Geo Ts and our micro sized Geo S8 systems, we can now offer a mid-size rig for weight restricted spaces such as small theaters and lighter duty outdoor roof structures,” says Tim Swan, Vice President and General Manager at Gand. “No sooner did the rig come back to the warehouse, it was sent out for a Poi Dog Pondering show followed by an extended theatrical run of A Chorus Line at the Paramount Theater in Aurora.”
The Paramount also upgraded its outdated 1960s cluster system to a Geo S12 system installed by Gand Installation Division in September of 2010. The 12-box LCR system is hidden behind a permanent soffit over the proscenium. “It made perfect sense to add additional matching left and right flown Geo S12 columns utilizing the Paramount's existing points,” states sound designer Adam Rosenthal. “It gave me the ability to widen the stereo image for the musical, and take care of the hard-driving, sold-out Poi Dog Pondering show with matching Nexo cabinets and amps.”
