BPG GETS 'HALF A TON' OF HEADROOM FOR KORN CONCERT
The Briere Production Group provided audio for Korn at the Queen Elizabeth Theater in Vancouver during the band's Canadian Jagermeister Music Tour 2010.
With opening acts 2 Cents and Five Finger Death Punch, the ultra-metal gathering promised to be a high output affair so BPG put up 28 Martin Audio W8LC compact line array enclosures with 20 powerful WSX subs stacked on stage, all powered by Martin MA4.2 and MA12K amps. The setup also included Yamaha PM5Ds, Dolby Lake processing and Martin Viewpoint software to design the array layout.
Asked about the challenges, Domirti said, 'We were going into a theater and needed great coverage, and the subs were going to be stacked on the deck so we had to go with a cardioid sub stack array.
'With the new MA12K amps driving our subs in a cardioid stack, we had tons of head room for a very high output show with very little bottom end on deck.'
Currently touring South America, Korn will soon be releasing a new album, 'Korn III: Remember Who Your Are.'
