Washington, D.C. (December 11, 2015)—While the Washington Nationals MLB team are always looking to knock one out of the park, one of its sound vendors, Tuxedo Moon, was looking to use audio to welcome fans into the park. Requiring speakers for the stadium’s main entrance that would present everything from announcements to pre-game entertainment, Tuxedo Moon turned to RMC Audio, regional vendor and installer, which in turn suggested using eight FBT Mitus 206Ls to cover the space.
“I have to say that as an audio tech who’s been doing this for 30 years, I was really impressed with the speakers,” said Les Slaybaugh, production manager for Tuxedo Moon. “They didn’t really take a lot of exterior tuning to get flat. The only tuning I really had to deal with was the overlap between the compression drivers and the mid range drivers. The speakers were basically designed correctly, to run smooth.”
Because Tuxedo Moon is based in Washington D.C., it often provides sound for political and corporate events, and uses FBT for many of those projects, too, said Slaybaugh: “Our work requires us to support the various corporate and political events that happen in Washington. At private functions and dinners, in hotel ballrooms and meeting halls where you’re dealing with straight voice, with speeches, you’re trying to make what comes out of your speakers sound as natural as a person talking to you. You can do that with FBT boxes.”
