Kenny Chesney Tours with EV’

April 8th, 2005

The rig - from Morris Leasing - features EV X-Line arrays and P3000RL remote control DSP amplification. Arrays of 16 X-Subs and 16 full-range XVLS boxes per side will ensure plenty of low end and midrange musicality throughout any sized arena the tour will visit, with additional fill hangs and ground stacks drawn from a pool of 80 XLC 127+ and 118 Sub compact line array boxes. X-Array wedges provide extra fills and monitors. The P3000RL amps provide all the power. In the racks at FOH can be found a Midas XL88 8x8 matrix mixer, KT DN9340 Helix digital EQ & DN9344 slaves, along with tons of DN9848 processing.

Systems Tech Ryan Nelson is pleased with way things are sounding. “The shows have all sounded fantastic from day one - running IRIS with the remote control amps really helps save time when it comes to tweaking the system for optimal performance. The X-Line boxes sound superb - really musical and warm across every bandwidth. Everything about this tour is big - the stage set, the lighting and the sound system - the audiences are getting a lot of show for their money, and the EV rig has never sounded better.“

Opening acts on the tour are are Uncle Kracker and Gretchen Wilson, whose “Redneck Woman“ was one of last year’s biggest hits. The tour runs all the way to the end of August, making it one of the biggest tours of the Summer.
