Minneapolis, MN (July 6, 2018)—The massive U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis recently became a house of worship for a day when it hosted Pulse – Twin Cities, a CCM festival headlined by LeCrae, Hillsong, and Jaberwockies, among others. Reach Communications provided audio for the 50,000 in attendance.
Handling audio in the new stadium is no simple task; the $1.1 billion venue quickly earned a reputation for questionable acoustics when it opened last year.
With that in mind, Reach Communications providing a 360-degree Nexo system based around Nexo STM boxes, with STM as Main, Out, Side and Delays; S12 as Rear; and M10 for front fills. Subs were a combination of flown and stacked STM S118, as well as cardioid-stacked Nexo RS18s.
Four hangs of 15 STM M46/B112 main and bass boxes were hung—two for the left-right and two for side hangs. Each hang additionally sported a pair of STM M28 downfills. Supplementing that, eight STM S118 subs were flown per side, and a dozen RS18s and eight STM S118s were on the ground on each side. Behind the stage were a pair of hangs consisting of a dozen GEO S12 cabinets.
The system was powered by 62 NX4x4 amplifiers over Dante, with an analog backup. System control, EQ, and delays were matrixed from a Lake LM26 and three LM44s.
