ANAHEIM, CA--The world premiere of Primal Twang, a theatrical music production that highlights the legacy of the guitar, debuted at San Diego's North Park Theatre September 7-10. Leading rental sound company Meeting Services provided a HiQnet sound reinforcement system for the performance, which included the first US theatrical-industry deployment of JBL Professional's new VP (Venue Performance) Series loudspeakers, as well as the first American use of the Soundcraft Vi6' digital console.

Meeting Services provided JBL Venue Performance VP7212 DPAN and VP7315 DPAN model loudspeakers as well as the VP7118 DPAN subwoofers to augment the venue's existing, installed JBL AM Series loudspeakers. To accommodate the unusual nature of the multifaceted, multimedia production, Meeting Services' technical sales manager Ken Freeman specified a Lexicon 960 digital multichannel processor with 7.1 surround capability. The surround speakers were the VP Series featuring DPAN input modules, which include analog inputs and sophisticated onboard digital signal processing technology. Precision band-pass limiting, pre-equalization filters and automatic self-test functions ensure optimized performance. The DPAN input module features 100 Mb Ethernet networking functionality and HiQnet compatibility. In addition to the Lexicon 960, Soundcraft Vi6, and JBL VP Series, Meeting Services used other Harman Pro Group audio technologies including HiQnet-compatible dbx DriveRack 4800 digital system controllers for optimizing the various zones of the sound reinforcement system, and Crown MA Series power amplifiers for the JBL-loaded stage monitors.
