EV Rides the Rodeo in Amarillo

February 21st, 2007



“Rather than opting for central clusters, we designed a system that would aim high-output speakers, properly augmented with subs, closer to the audience around the perimeter of the venue,“ says Dennis Grigsby, who co-owns Little Orchard Sound with John Ford. “This takes a considerable load off the full range boxes, making for a more energy efficient system that enables the subs to do what they’re supposed to do.“ These boxes are interspersed with ten additional ZX5s covering the main floor.

“The ZX5s precisely deliver smooth, intelligible sound with tons of headroom to spare,“ Grigsby adds. “DVX woofers are in a class of their own-there’s some serious power handling and high SPL stability in these relatively small and lightweight enclosures. In addition, the tried and true QRx subs seamlessly support the low end. This adds up to a PA that is as perfect for speech as it is for high volume playback-plenty of punch!

According to John Ford, “This is a large reverberant arena, but the audio inside is cohesive, consistent and clean throughout with no delays. On any given evening, there’s a combination of horse event music routines, event commentary, National Anthem singers and live performances, and the audience high up in the bleachers hears exactly the same thing as the folks on the floor. The rodeo world has very specific audio needs, and we spec’d the right equipment to address those needs exactly-our clients are extremely happy.“
