L-ACOUSTICS was on hand for the Red Bull Air Race World Series in San Diego, CA.SAN DIEGO, CA--High-end aerobatic planes weren't the only things that took to the skies at downtown San Diego's Big Bay for the second-to-last stop of the 2007 Red Bull Air Race World Series. Numerous L-ACOUSTICS line source array elements were also flying in precise formation at five different locations along the north and south peninsulas of Embarcadero Marina Park delivering highly intelligible audio reinforcement throughout the event.

Hayward, California-based Sound On Stage was contracted as the exclusive sound reinforcement provider for the race. According to general manager George Edwards, "The benefit of using L-ACOUSTICS line arrays and various boxes in this particular application is two-fold. First is its proven ability to cover wide and long distances, and second is the absolute clarity of the spoken word. This is a unique event. There is no stage; it's not about entertainment. The whole thing is about taking the announcer's voice from one microphone and distributing it cleanly to a hundred thousand people or more."

Getting that single microphone's message out loud and clear was a combined total of 16 L-ACOUSTICS ARCS, 28 dV-DOSC and six V-DOSC line source array elements, plus four high-power dV-SUB and 14 SB218 subwoofers, all spread out between five SR positions. When asked if he was pleased with the results, Edwards commented simply, "At the end of the day, we wouldn't use anything else."
