Acoutech deployed a pair of Soundcraft Vi3000 digital mixing consoles, one for the FOH music mixing and one for monitor mixing. The FOH board featured 96 inputs, while the monitor console drove 16 stage mixes, plus another eight stereo hardwired in-ear mixes over MADI. In addition, Soundcraft Stageboxes fed 16 stereo wireless in-ear monitors.

“The two Soundcraft consoles shared the same I/O so we were able to distribute and manage all the signals between the consoles and the production and music trucks,” said AJ Perez, President of Acoutech.

The main PA system for the awards featured JBL VERTEC VT4889 and VT4888 line array loudspeakers, along with VT4880 arrayable subwoofers. JBL VRX932LA Constant Curvature loudspeakers were used for front fill and side fill monitoring, while SRX712M stage monitors rounded out the loudspeaker system.

Crown I-Tech 4x3500HD amplifiers powered the loudspeakers. The amplifiers feature a variety of DSP capabilities including V5 preset tuning support for the VERTEC line arrays.
