Jackson, MO (August 14, 2012)—The Jackson Municipal Band presents free weekly concerts at the Jackson Municipal Bandshell, using a system from Unity Pro Audio and Video, centered around a QSC Audio WL3082-ww Weatherized WideLine-8 line array system.
The loudspeaker system consists of two QSC PL380 amplifiers and a single PL340 to power the array, along with a SC28 System Controller. A trio of PowerLight 3 Series amplifiers power the system. Unity Pro AV additionally supplied eight QSC K10 two-way, 10-inch active speakers for use as floor monitors.
“As there are surrounding houses and residential areas near the bandshell, putting a line array on either side of the stage would have given way, way too much horizontal coverage,” said Unity Pro AV’s Matt Schwartz. “The QSC WideLine-8 was the ideal solution as a center array because of its 140-degree dispersion. It allows us to keep the coverage off the local residences as much as possible and stay within the amphitheater.”
Because the center array weighs over 500 pounds, Unity Pro AV had to fabricate additional structural metalwork for the bandshell.
The Jackson Municipal Band has performed annually since 1976, at the outdoor bandshell and continues to perform every Thursday evening throughout the summer. The band’s current summer season kicked off on June 7 with opening act, the Southeast Missouri State Steel Drum Band.
