“We bought the quantities so that we would be able to create two equal rigs or have one large system,” states Brian Naab, Production Manager. “The sound, price, weight and reliability were big factors. Having a well-known name like Yamaha behind these products made a big difference over the other European speaker manufacturers that we were considering. When we demoed the RS18, we were very impressed with the quality of the bass, SPL output, and flexibility. Being able to run them in Cardioid or Omni mode depending on the venue was a plus.”
“As a production manager, one of the biggest benefits to me with NEXO is the software,” says Naab. “I can model a room after a site survey and know what the PA will do for my client before sending it out with the crew. I find GeoSoft2 to be amazingly accurate and reliable in the vertical plane. The NS1 has made it better by adding bass and vastly improving the horizontal prediction. Our guys love the PA and can walk into any venue and fly or stack it without guessing or wasting time with trial and error.”
For a sold out show in late November held at the College of New Jersey’s Kendall Hall and featuring Mute Math, Plain White T’s, and All Time Low, the PA consisted of 6x GEO S1210s ground stacked per side, 2x RS18s per side, 2x GEO S830s used for front fill, all powered by 3x NX4x4 amplifiers.
