Bose L1 System and PowerKompany

Portable PA systems have evolved tremendously over the years. With speaker system technology advancing so rapidly, we are able to have more powerful systems with much smaller designs. This is a welcomed improvement for artists like Marie Davon and her band PowerKompany. Hailing from Athens, GA and with an affinity for orchestral atmosphere, PowerKompany describe their sound as being cinematic with a pop sensibility.

While PowerKompany currently play theaters and clubs, Marie often times will play smaller and more intimate venues that might not always have a PA. For this reason, she will need to bring her own PA which will usually consist of the typical PA equipment of speakers, an amplifier, and a mixing console. In addition to being mired with cables and a tedious setup process, Marie has to get her PA equipment in and out of various venues by herself. Traditional PA equipment is heavy and awkward …

Peavey PVXp 12 Review

Peavey have been making quality and affordable loudspeakers for decades. Some of the first live sound PA speakers I ever bought were a set of Peavey loudspeakers. They held up for years and while they haven’t seen much use lately, I could set them up right now and they will still sound great. Peavey have continued to improve their lines of both passive and active loudspeakers which has culminated in their latest line the Peavey PVXp series. As the lowercase “p” implies, these are powered loudspeakers which house the same waveguide technology and RX14™ – Titanium Compression Driver as the PVX passive loudspeakers. The only major differences between the “p” and the “p”-less line are the weight (obviously) and the ability to include Peavey’s expansion module technology which we will cover below. Ideally you want your loudspeakers to be rugged but also lightweight, loud but sonically pleasing, and reliable but not …

Bose L1 Portable Speaker Systems Overview

Bose is known for having some of the best sounding audio devices from headphones, to media players, to surround sound systems. To add to their existing line of quality professional audio equipment, Bose put out a collection of portable PA systems. Initially released in 2003 the L1 Speaker Systems looked to change the way we look at live sound setups. These systems have been used in multiple applications from PA for the acoustic performer to monitor systems for full bands.

The New JBL EON515XT at Winter NAMM 2011

We LOVE good music.  Who doesn’t, yeah?  It’s important to have good reliable instruments, DJ gear, and microphones in order to give a good solid performance. Probably just as important is what type of amplifier and speaker you use to play your music through. We have thoroughly enjoyed JBL’s EON series for many years and now they have continued their awesome legacy with the introduction of the sweet new EON515XT. They’ve given us more power (625W), and a higher input gain (132db) than the previous 515 and added separate bass and treble controls to fine tune your sound. We have already received them and they are ready to ship today. Enjoy!
