JBL sound systems were installed for the Nitro Circus Live show to create the right impact in an outdoor environment.
The Nitro Circus Live show that recently toured Australia is based on the popular MTV Extreme Sports show led by the legendary Travis Pastrana. The show features sport stunts from freestyle motor cross and skateboards to a wheelchair-bound guy flinging himself off the 50-feet high Gigantor Ramp.
Global Action Sports, who have the worldwide rights to create the Nitro Circus show, had earlier worked with George Gorga when he was Sound Designer for Crusty Demons.
George Gorga was commissioned by Global Action Sports to create a soundtrack as well as design and operate the audio system.
According to George, they were able to build the show from scratch, trying to retain elements from the television show whilst creating an exciting live show that was partly scripted but also very unpredictable.
For the outdoor Nitro Circus Live shows, George opted for a JBL VerTec PA system ground stacked and pointing up into the grandstands.
There were ten ground stacks consisting of three JBL 4889 VerTec PA systems and two JPS single 18" subs each in addition to two ground stacks of four JBL 4888 VerTec systems and two JPS single 18" subs.
Apart from the great level and coverage one can get out of these clusters in the outdoors, George says that the audio systems are very hardy for the environment, providing superior performance at a show where motor bikes and commentary run on top of the soundtrack.
George will travel with Nitro Circus Live to their next performance at the MGM in Las Vegas followed by a US tour.
JBL VerTec PA systems are available from Jands , a leading Australian distributor of professional sound equipment, lighting systems and staging equipment.
