Greenville, SC -- When Furman University sought a sound reinforcement system fitting the idyllic surroundings of its open-air amphitheater, Audio Solutions, Inc., a Greenville neighbor, saw a solution in a combination of ZX5-60PI and Sx600PI loudspeakers from Electro-Voice.
Audio Solutions, Inc. president Alan Simonton said, "Furman University puts on a summer concert series in its outdoor amphitheater, which is by a large lake. It needed better coverage for the audience area, which extends beyond the main seating area to around the banks of the lake. It's a very picturesque spot. Two clusters of two ZX5s are flown from the stage roof as mains at left and right, and, in combination with the six Sx600PI dual-element line arrays mounted in the bell tower in front of the amphitheater, the audience can hear things clearly wherever they are sitting."
The Sx600PIs were designed for outdoor applications such as this, where adequate coverage, throw and intelligibility are an issue. "We brought along a demo set for the college," said Simonton. "It was clear that the Sx600 was the speaker to help enhance the whole concert experience. We custom-designed some hinged brackets in order to swing the Sx600s out into the window spaces in the tower, allowing precise aiming from a tricky spot."
