MassAV Debuts EAW KF760 in Boston
On May 3rd, Mass Audio Visual of Burlington, Massachusetts, unveiled the new EAW KF760 Line Array sound system. The first in the world to own this product, massAV entertained 125 industry guests at the renowned concert facility on Boston's Waterfront, The Fleet Boston Pavilion. Jason Geshelin, senior audio engineer for massAV, designed the new system for even coverage in the 5,000-seat tented-facility. The system comprised 12 KF 760 cabinets, four KF 761 downfill modules and eight SB 1000 bass units. 100,000 watts of power was provided from Crest 9001 and 8002 amplifiers, with processing from DBX 480 and 480R units. Front-of-house mixing duties were carroed out on a Crest GTX console, with a Ramsa 840 used for monitors.

The afternoon featured entertainment from the Berklee "Tower of Power" Ensemble and singer/songwriter Brian Alex. Brad Berger, FOH engineer for the ensemble commented: "The imaging and coverage was fantastic," he continued: "The coverage was smooth throughout the facility. I was really impressed by the quick drop-off and lack of sound coming off the back of the box. Working with massAV was a complete pleasure."

Jason Geshelin explained: "The Pavilion is an acoustically challenging facility to cover and mix in. The KF760 solved many problems inherent to the venue, including eliminating delay speakers."

Brian Alex, whose credits include Entrain & Missing Person's commented after performing: "This product is superior to anything out there. The clarity and throw is incredible."
