Artists who have performed with DBLUX’s LEO system include Paul McCartney, Metallica, Soundgarden, One Direction, Jack Johnson, Marc Anthony, Rubén Blades, and Daddy Yankee and Prince Royce.

“The concert promoters have been extremely pleased by the great coverage, power, and overall musical quality of the LEO system,” says Cuadros. “Obviously LEO’s reputation has spread among FOH engineers; many who haven’t used it yet are eager to try it. And when they are finished mixing, they are impressed—and sometimes even surprised—by what the system can do.”

Other notable events covered by LEO include “Together in Concert,” where Latin American superstars Carlos Vives, Olga Tañón, Gilberto Santa Rosa, and Tito el Bambino performed together to an audience of 25,000. Many of the shows took place in Lima’s National Stadium (Estadio Nacional) and Exposition Park (Parque de la Exposición).

DBLUX S.A.C.’s core LEO system comprises 30 LEO-M line array loudspeakers, with six MICA line array loudspeakers for down fills. Up to 36 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements provide low end, while system drive and optimization are supplied by a Galileo Callisto loudspeaker management system with one Galileo 616 AES and four Galileo Callisto 616 array processors. Exact numbers and configurations vary according to requirements, with MILO and MICA line array loudspeakers sometimes deployed for out fills or delays in large venues.

“The new LEO system has quickly proven to be a wise investment,” says Cuadros. “The solid bookings for LEO are keeping us very, very busy this summer, and the demand keeps growing.”
