Ft. Meyers, FL (August 5, 2015)—Bringing the likes of Josh Turner, Joe Nichols and Tanya Tucker to Fort Meyers is a new concert venue, The Ranch Concert Hall and Saloon, and bringing the artists’ sound to the audience is a D.A.S. Audio Aero Series 2-based PA.
Ft. Meyers, FL-based Tech-Tronics Sound, Lighting, and Staging was contracted to provide sound for The Ranch. Owner Arthur ‘Rusty’ Roepke recalled, “We wanted to ensure that not only the performers, but their technical staff as well, had a system that offered the music reproduction and speech intelligibility characteristics they expected. After evaluating the room, we elected to deploy a system consisting of Aero 12A powered two-way, mid-high line array modules and LX-218A powered high performance subwoofers.”
The main stage setup at The Ranch includes eight D.A.S. Aero 12A line array elements—four enclosures each for the left and right hangs. The eight LX-218A subwoofers that are deployed were positioned underneath the stage. In addition to the house mains, Roepke and his crew also positioned another two Aero 12A enclosures—one each for left and right— roughly 60 feet out from the main stage to serve as a delay system.
The installation at The Ranch occurred in late 2014 and since that time, Roepke reports the system has performed above and beyond everyone’s expectations, “It’s been terrific,” he said. “In the 10 months that the system has been operational, there hasn’t been a single problem. The artists and their engineers have been very complimentary and our client has been equally pleased.”
