GEELONG, Australia – Total Events supplied a HARMAN audio system for background music, MC and umpires at the Geelong Lawn Tennis Club stands for the recent Davis Cup tennis tournament in Australia.
The main challenge for Total Events was keeping a minimal layout without obscuring sightlines and the company’s stock of JBL VRX Constant Curvature loudspeakers was ideal for this as they are renowned for their low visual impact.
Six JBL VRX918S powered subwoofers and 12 JBL VRX932LA loudspeakers were used, powered by six Crown IT8000 amplifiers all networked along with a Soundcraft Si Compact 32 digital console.
“The VRX cabinets are discreet so you can point and shoot without obscuring the view of the tennis action,” commented Bill Busbridge, managing director of Total Events. “They have a nice high power output and it’s good to be able to network the amplifiers so I can control remotely and time align.”
“I absolutely love the Soundcraft Si Compact console,” Busbridge noted. “I have two of them in hire and I have also sold a couple. I really enjoy using them and we’re using them a lot on our shows & events.
“I really like that you can move channels to any layer is great,” Busbridge added. “The small footprint is a bonus and it’s just so easy to grab it and use. We find a lot of walk-in engineers who are familiar with the console.”
The system was sold through Jands, JBL and Soundcraft’s Australian distributor.
