Electro-Voice Xi sound system raises the bar for club sound at Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas
The Hard Rock Café on the Las Vegas Strip now has one of the best-sounding showrooms in the entertainment capital of the world, thanks to a brand new Electro-Voice sound system.
Installed in time for the Hard Rock Battle of the Bands 2011 final, which took place on March 11 in their 1200-capacity showroom, the new system features EV Xi-series loudspeakers – the choice of many other leading venues around the world and a benchmark for high performance audio.
In addition to the Xi boxes, the EV spec also includes amplifiers, signal processing, and microphones.
The Hard Rock Battle of the Bands has become one of the biggest competitions of its kind in the world, with Hard Rock Cafes around the world participating. For 2011, four bands will win spots performing at this summer’s Hard Rock Calling festival in Hyde Park, London – the city’s biggest concert event series, with past headliners including Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen.
