EV Scores At Orange Bowl

Publish date:

Miami, FL - The 72nd Annual FedEx Orange Bowl game kicked off at Dolphins Stadium, where the Penn State Nittany Lions played a winning game against the Florida State Seminoles. Another decisive victory was the EV-powered sound, which delivered American Idol alum Ruben Studdard's performance of the national anthem and the halftime show, featuring R&B artist Ciara.

Orange Bowl contract holders Everlast Productions of Hallandale, FL, sub-contracted LD Systems of Houston, TX, to provide technical expertise and 48 EV X-Line XVLS cabinets for the twenty-minute halftime production. The 48 boxes were split up into mini arrays of four, mounted on 12 custom-made carts. The XVLS boxes were selected for their extended low-end response, as subs were not practical for deployment in this application. To help with the low-end, each XVLS box was powered by its own P3000RL remote control amplifier. The amp sets were pre-wired and bunkered in four separate locations along the sidelines. LD Systems also supplied X-Subs for Ciara's stage mix, providing low-end to augment their proprietary monitors.

"We were contacted by Gus Fuentes at Everlast Productions, who felt that X-Line would be the best bet for this event, especially in terms of delivering enough low-end for an R&B concert without running subs," said Robert Ausmus of LD Systems. "This low-end capacity gives X-Line a unique advantage over the other line-array boxes on the market."
