Peavey® Versarray™ & Crest Audio® Rock Mayhem Tour -

Peavey® Versarray™ & Crest Audio® Rock Mayhem Tour

Publish date:

Go big or stay at home. For the fifth year in a row, the Peavey®Versarray™ line-array sound system and Crest Audio® power amplifiers are featured on the Rockstar® Mayhem Festival, with a bigger system than ever to bring the music to the masses at North America’s premier traveling rock music event.

As the exclusive sound system of the Jägermeister® Mobile Stage, the Peavey Versarray 212 provides articulate sound reinforcement for metal and hard rock’s heaviest artists—including Peavey artists Asking Alexandria and The Devil Wears Prada—a challenge that the Versarray has more than handled on all four previous Rockstar Mayhem Festival tours.

“We have used the Peavey Versarray line array since we debuted the Jägermeister® Mobile Stage in 2007, and we couldn’t be happier with the performance and sound quality,” said Jack Carson, Director of Event Marketing at Jägermeister. “The Rockstar Mayhem Festival has grown even bigger this year, so we’re bringing an even bigger and louder Versarray sound system to the fans.”

For the 2012 Rockstar Mayhem Festival, the Jägermeister® Mobile Stage is using twin arrays of ten Versarray 212 enclosures per side instead of eight per side, plus sixteen thundering Versarray 218subwoofers. Each Versarray 212 enclosure is outfitted with two 12” Black Widow® woofers, four planar ribbon drivers and ten midrange drivers. The proprietary ribbon drivers are mounted to a manifold line source that works with the specially designed midrange drivers to create a high-energy field that enables critically damped operation with immediate transient response.

The Versarray line-array system is managed by Peavey Architectural Acoustics® Digitool® processors and powered by twenty-four Crest Audio Pro 9200™ amplifiers and six Pro 8200™ amps. A combination of six Crest Audio Pro 9200, four Pro 8200 and four Pro 7200™ amps provide power for the stage’s Peavey QW® monitor rig.

“The Peavey Versarray 212 is a big leap forward for sound reinforcement technology,” said Dave Summers, Road and Production Manager for the Jägermeister® Mobile Stage. “It’s the ideal system for modern touring situations, where performance and efficiency are matters of necessity.”

Peavey 6505® Series guitar amplifier endorsers The Devil Wears Prada, Asking Alexandria, Whitechapel and Upon a Burning Body are performing on the 2012 Rockstar Mayhem Festival tour.
