Electro-Voice Phoenix™ Loudspeaker System Excels at Midwest Music Summit in Indianapolis

August 17, 2006

From August 10th to August 14th, 2006, indie rock bands from around the U.S. descended on Indianapolis to take part in the city’s Midwest Music Summit, comprised of 15 venues playing host to over one hundred bands. The festival’s main stage, located in the city’s Broad Ripple neighborhood, featured nearly 30 bands, all performing through the newest loudspeaker system offering from EV, manifest in Phoenix™, the rebirth of patented Electro-Voice Manifold Technology™.

“There is a ton of headroom and it never felt like the system was straining or being pushed hard. It was effortless.”

Featuring the likes of Creepin Charley & The Boneyard Orchestra, AutoVaughn, Emerson Rose, Revera, AbsentStar, Lunar Event, Kate Voegele, NEEDTOBREATHE, The Brakes, amongst numerous others, the main stage was the epicenter of cool during the entire event.

Josh Bartunek, EV product manager, MI loudspeakers, commented: “Phoenix represents the latest in technological advancements for systems of this size - systems that would invariably be used in events of this type - festivals, regional sound reinforcement, etc. Three days of bands playing from noon to midnight with no problems says a lot about what the system is designed to do. The first time you hear a kick drum through Phoenix you get the distinct impression that you are mixing through a concert level rig that is capable of extremely high SPL. There is a ton of headroom and it never felt like the system was straining or being pushed hard. It was effortless. Not only that, it’s easy to set-up and tear down - packs easily and doesn’t require an inordinate amount of space. “
