Knoxville, TN (May 17, 2016)—Knoxville’s M&L Sound recently joined L-Acoustics’ Rental Network as the manufacturer’s latest Certified Provider (CPr).
The company’s initial L-Acoustics purchase comprised 24 K2 and 12 ARCS WiFo enclosures, 16 SB28 subs and 15 LA8 amplified controllers housed in five LA-RAKs, all of which play into the SR provider’s business model of providing stacks and racks to festivals and venues across the Appalachians.
Since the purchase, the system has been put to steady use on a variety of productions, including an Umphrey’s McGee concert for 6,000 at US Cellular Center in Asheville; Knoxville’s Big Ears Festival at Tennessee Theatre; and on the pool-deck-turned-nightclub of an Atlantis cruise through the Caribbean. Tapping into the inventories of fellow Rental Network companies, M&L also flew 52 K2 enclosures for Tony Robbins’ “Unleash the Power Within” event featuring Pitbull at a local convention center filled with 10,000 people.
M&L production manager Justin Slazas noted, “So far, we’ve cross-rented product with ESI in Tampa, Beach Sound in Miami and Loud and Clear in Cincinnati, all of which have been a joy to work with. After having experience with all of the major speaker manufacturer networks—or lack thereof—L-Acoustics’ Rental Network is by far the best experience all around. Anytime I have a need for more enclosures or amps, there are a lot more companies to ‘play ball’ with than any other network.”
