EventSound was one of the first Australian production companies to take delivery of a JBL VRX932 powered compact line array system. The JBL VRX932 powered compact line array system is available from Jands .
According to Keith Clarkson, Managing Director, EventSound, JBL VRX powered system is easy to use. EventSound bought four VRX932LAP 12-inch powered loudspeakers and one pair of VRX918SP 18-inch powered subwoofers and teamed the subwoofers with the four existing JBL SRX718 subwoofers to make a total of six. The instruments have the same components but are un-powered.
EventSound already own ten JBL SRX712 speakers and four SRX718 subwoofers, before purchasing the VRX system. JBL has a distinctive sound in that range and choosing the VRX meant they could complement it with the SRX as in-fills or delays when required. The VRX system has more power than the SRX and is better for medium to large events. The VRX offers minimum spill from the rear of the speaker and is suitable for lecterns. Once the person is out of the line of the speaker, it drops off as they are precise in their directivity.
One recent event which benefited from JBL VRX system at EventSound was a fortieth birthday private party held at the Trackdown recording rooms in Fox Studios. The venue was kitted out as a 70’s Club with Bjorn Again as the main entertainment.
The JBL VRX array system was used as the main PA with a Soundcraft GB4 for mix front of house and also a Soundcraft monitor console. Added to that were JBL SRX 712M wedges, Crown XTI 4000 amplifiers and Shure UHF-R Radio systems. EventSound used VRX system with SRX712M boxes monitors and the result was found to be good.
The VRX system at EventSound was recently used at an event held in Sydney’s stunning Ivy Ballroom for audio coverage and also to enhance the event aesthetics offering clean sightlines to the stage.
