XLD Means More for Less for Moore Audio!

October 22nd, 2007



Proprietor Richard Moore, who started the company four years ago, says that, because EV’s XLD technology is so quick to put in place, “we no longer need the hours, even days, of set-up time in expensive function rooms. We can get the PA up and running faster than ever before, and that works out more cost-effectively for my clients.“

Moore Audio has purchased from Shuttlesound, Electro-Voice’s UK distributor, a system which initially comprises 12x XLD281 three-way, ultra-compact cabinets, but, after just a few shows with the new boxes, they are already planning on supplementing the inventory with subwoofers and additional 281s.

Moore adds: “We looked at all the prestige-branded options on the market in this category and nothing else even came close in terms of usability for my application; every other box is simply too heavy.“

Moore Audio has come to specialize in rentals to production companies serving large blue-chip organizations, such as banks and building societies. Typically, their venues are the large function rooms of prestige hotels all over the UK. “We built our reputation using EV’s Sx systems, but the next step required us to invest in line array,“ Moore explains. “It was taking too much of our time-and therefore our clients’ money-to cable numerous two-way boxes in these environments, and we were still not getting the results that I knew we could get with line array.

“Of course there are constraints when it comes to using this technology in hotel function rooms, so we were searching for a system with very, very compact cabinets. Only EV’s XLD loudspeakers could fly so easily and simply and give us 120-degree horizontal dispersion: the sound quality and the output from such small boxes is unbelievable.“

Amongst the first assignments for the new XLD system was a recent awards banquet for 800 people, hosted by a well-known Hilton Hotel in London. “In the past, I’d have used more than a dozen two-way boxes in a distributed system with all the miles of cabling that go with it. With XLD, we were able to put up two drops each with 6x XLD281 cabinets; two of us did it in less than an hour.“ Powered by Moore Audio’s new EV CP3000S amplifiers, with some additional Klark-Teknik processing, the new system received praise for its audio quality as well as ease of rigging. “I’ve never heard results like I’m getting now,“ says Moore.
