Germany - To cater for post-pandemic live events, Alex-SOUND has added JBL Professional VTX Series loudspeakers and Crown power amplifiers to their inventory.
Based in Berlin, Alex-SOUND is a one-stop shop for casual and professional events, providing audio-visual system rental, photography, DJ services, catering and more. With COVID restrictions lifting and live events making a comback, Alex-SOUND decided to invest in a cutting-edge audio system.
The company turned to Audio Pro, the Harman Professional Solutions distributor in Germany, to upgrade their inventory with JBL VTX A8 line array loudspeakers, VTX B18 subwoofers and Crown I-Tech 4x3500HD power amplifiers.
“Despite the pandemic, it made sense for us to invest in the JBL VTX A8,” said Stefan Mendelsohn, owner, Alex-SOUND. “The VTX A8 is an incredibly versatile, high-quality speaker. Not only does it sound great, but its weight and handling are perfect for our needs.”
Additionally, the JBL VTX B18 subwoofers are compatible with the VTX A8 for easy suspension. Equipped with the new JBL 2288H 18-inch woofer and Slip Stream ports, the B18 offers deep bass response as low as 28 Hz with efficient airflow and minimal audible turbulence. The Crown IT43500HD amplifier completes the system with Omnidrive HD Processing, reliable power output and the user-friendly LevelMAX Limiter Suite.
Alex-SOUND trialed its new system at a large outdoor event organised by the German trade union ver.di and received positive reactions from the socially distanced audience.
“The pandemic has proved traumatic for the event industry in general, but there are still opportunities to be found,” said Carsten Peter, product manager, Audio Pro. “Social distancing means you need a system that can cover spaces five to ten times bigger than they normally would be. The VTX-A8 is perfect for these situations.”
“We’ve already started using the system in live events, and it’s made a positive impression not just with our clients, but also among our professional sound engineers,” added Mendelsohn. “We’re grateful for the support we’ve received from the team at Audio Pro, who has been at our side from the very beginning, and we are proud to be part of the JBL family.”
