Frankfurt, Germany (April 9, 2012)—Peavey sponsored the Musikmesse Agora Stage, providing its audio system during the entire four-day exhibition.
The Agora Stage is Musikmesse’s main performance area, with live entertainment productions throughout the show from artists such as the Alex Skolnick Trio. The Peavey Commercial Audio division outfitted the Agora Stage with a Peavey Versarray line array loudspeaker system, Impulse 12D front fills, Crest Audio mixing consoles at front-of-house and monitors, and a MediaMatrix NION n6 digital networked audio system that allowed the sound engineers to configure and control the Agora Stage complex.
“Providing sound reinforcement for the Agora Stage allows us to show the extensive capabilities of the Peavey Commercial Audio suite of professional audio products to a global audience,” said Hartley Peavey, founder and CEO of Peavey Electronics.
A team of Crest Pro 9200 and Pro 7200 amplifiers powered the ribbon driver-loaded Versarray 212 line array and Versarray 218 subwoofers, with loudspeaker management from the MediaMatrix NION n6. Two Crest Audio CV-20 consoles with 56 channels controlled audio from the front-of-house position.
Peavey also provided the full monitor sound reinforcement system for the Agora stage. The monitor setup included two 48-channel Crest CV-20 mixing consoles with Peavey CS Series and Crest Pro 200 amplifiers, which powered the Peavey QW ML and MR monitor wedges and QW 1, QW 2 and Versarray 218 side fills and drum fills—all controlled by a Peavey Architectural Acoustics Digitool MX processor.
