January 2014 - Ford Park - Beaumont Texas
A new VTC system consisting of EL210T array cabinets, EL212T subwoofers (flown using ELB-8 bumpers), and DLMS4080 processors powered with Yorkville AP4K power amplifiers has been installed by SMG in the Ford Park Arena in Beaumont Texas.
The replacement design was based on a modular concept, instead of a permanent install. This concept gives the venue the ability to reconfigure the system as needed. After the completion of phase one, the venue now operates with sixteen EL210's and four EL212's. The VTC enclosures are powered with ten AP4K amplifiers and controlled by the DLMS4080 system processor.
"We were honored to work with Ford Arena and the great staff at Yorkville\VTC," says Danny Broussard, Director of Operations for the venue. "Yorkville representatives Laurence Bell, Rick Fischio, and Darren Butt have been a huge part in a very successful installation of a new VTC speaker system for Ford Arena."
"All together the Yorkville\VTC gear has made an amazing improvement to the venue's sound," explains Sweet Southern Sound owner Clint Hill – responsible for the Ford Arena installation. "We were excited about the sound quality that the VTC boxes provided. They were easy to install, the rigging hardware was straightforward, and the performance is outstanding. We are looking forward to the second phase of this project and to other locations that we can expose to the performance of VTC."
