EV’ goes to the movies with Sonimax Light & Sound

January 7th, 2005



Sonimax owner John Sanders explained why his QRx boxes are kept busy: “The introduction of the QRx really upped the ante for what is considered entry level high-end pro audio. Rather than cut corners to cut cost, EV has packed everything I need into these cabinets, and nothing I don’t. QRx simply makes sense in terms of sound, in terms of rigging flexibility, and in terms of rock-solid componentry. You can’t argue with DH7 drivers and EVX woofers. These boxes have been used for everything - from small DJ gigs to a Jimmy Cliff concert. We have plenty of QRx boxes on hand to handle any production scenario that might arise, and have found they perform well in numerous configurations and applications at this level of event production. I love their pleasant, concise and detailed sound, as well as their ability to withstand the rigors of the road - which is a pretty good assessment of EV in general.“

Sanders’ QRx boxes are put to work moving some pretty rarefied air: “The majority of our work takes place out in the Hamptons, though we do have the occasional call form New York City. Greenwich, Conn., also keeps us busy in the summertime, providing sound for polo matches. The Hampton Classic Horse Show takes place in Bridgehampton, NY, and is a “rain or shine’ application for the QRx boxes, which I used to provide sound for a 27-foot jumbotron screen. I mounted two QRx 115/75 full-range boxes on 16-foot crank-up lifts, along with two QRx 218 S double 18“ subs. The video screen was used for event-sponsor advertisements, and clear, articulate sound throughout the entire arena was priority number one. Although distributed sound was an option, the management preferred a “point source’ in order to focus the audiences’ attention directly to the screen. The QRx boxes produce wonderfully warm sound that carries really well. That makes them supremely versatile - as a highly portable, affordable concert box, you can’t go wrong with the QRx.“
