Singesen Technical Production and Chan Lee Sound & Light selected a combination of Powersoft’s X8 and X4L amplifier platforms for American singer-songwriter, Jason Mraz, as he stopped off in Kuala Lumpur for the third Asian date of his Good Vibes World Tour.
As an artist that favours the fidelity of the songs, the quality of the sound at the Axiata Arena was the technical crew’s main concern.
The main hangs at the arena were made up of 12 JBL VT-4889-1 per side, with eight JBL VT4888 flown per side as side fill and six JBL VT4888 in the centre. The 20 JBL VT 4880 subwoofers were ground-stacked at the side of the stage, while a series of Nexo PS15 wedge monitors were placed along the downstage edge. A total of six JBL VTX A8 were used as front-fill.
The main system was driven by 11 of Powersoft’s road-proven X8 amplifier platforms, while a pair of the company’s latest touring product - the X4L - were also used to power eight of the VT4880’s, with each channel driving just two of the subs. As Jackie Ng, owner of Singesen, explained: “The gig was used as something of a field test for the X4L amps, before loading it with VT4880A long excursion subwoofers in the future.”
The Powersoft gear was made available thanks to Singesen Technical Production’s recent investment in the Italian manufacturer’s industry leading technology – a testament to their growing confidence in the brand.
