VUE NAMM Demo and Party

For the 2019 Holiday Season, The Magic Of Christmas is taking place at the Merrill Auditorium in Portland, Maine and the 82 piece orchestra will be performing over a 3 week period. In the past, Daniel Willis of AV Technik reports having used Dynacord Cobra and Meyer fill speakers mounted in the auditorium. When asked why he switched to VUE Audio al-4 he stated “We have always used Dynacord Cobra for this event – we felt that for how detailed the VUE al-4 is, it would be perfect for a large orchestra and vocalists.” 

AV Technik’s system engineer, Nick Pires, utilized Ease Focus to spec out 12 al-4s per side and ensure the rig was deployed properly. After the first performance, Willis explained “The system has exceeded our expectations for this application…Sound Killer…Our client (PSO) is thrilled. The coverage in the 2200 seat auditorium including the balcony, was crystal clear to the last row.”
