Joseph Walsh – FOH Boz Scaggs

Boz Scaggs generally tours in performing arts venues and theatres and generally only carry a mixing console and a monitor rig. The FOH system is typically a house PA or a local rental.

CX-TV Gearbox & CX Mag reviews of the VUE h-15N loudspeaker

Looking at the external finish of the VUE h15 gives you a pretty good idea of the build quality within, and lifting the speaker up should pretty rapidly confirm your theory. Or if you wanted to do things the easy way, you could always just plug it in and have a listen.

h-Class is the flagship range of point source speaker systems by VUE Audiotechnik, and the h15s are about the biggest full range boxes in the series (the subwoofers are bigger). The h15 is available in two variations – the h15N (narrow) and the h15W (wide). Physically and electronically the two are very similar, the key point of difference being the nominal coverage angles – the wide is 100×50 degrees while the narrow model is 60×40 degrees (HxV). We reviewed the narrow model.

TEC Award nomination for “Best Studio Design Project” by SIA Acoustics features VUE’s h-Class

Airshow’s studios in Takoma Park were excited to find out that SIA Acoustics have been nominated for a NAMM TEC Award in Outstanding Creative Achievement for “Best Studio Design Project” for their design of Airshow’s brand new Allyworld space. Presented annually during The NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA the TEC Awards are one of the most prestigious honors given to the innovative people, companies, and gear of the music, film, TV, and video game industries.

This is a well-deserved recognition. Sam Berkow and his team at SIA approached the project with enthusiasm and ingenuity. Their hard work helped realize chief engineer Charlie Pilzer’s vision for expanding the size and capabilities of the Takoma Park recording and mastering facility. The creation of Allyworld triples the amount of available recording space and provides an amazing venue in which to record and perform in front of an audience.

al-8 & al-4 COMBINATION ARRAYS FOR BOJANGLES COLOSSEUM

Sound & Communications November 2015

If you like to root for the underdog, then Bojangles’ Coliseum warrants your attention. The 9600-seat venue sits in a crowded milieu, surrounded by larger venues, including the 20,000-seat Time Warner Cable Arena and Bank of America Stadium, home of the NFL Carolina Panthers franchise, collateral to the considerable growth that the Charlotte area has experienced in the last several years. And it’s a youthful cohort, too: While the Time Warner Cable Arena just finished its first decade and UNC’s Halton Arena is nearly twice that, Bojangles’ Coliseum celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2015.

But Bojangles’ Coliseum’s endurance (its naming history, from the Charlotte Coliseum to Independence Arena to Cricket Arena, a kind of cultural timeline) is an accomplishment in and of itself, offering a Carnegie Hall level of allure; no other arena in the state or possibly anywhere else can lay claim to having hosted shows by both the Beatles and Elvis Presley.
