LONDON’S 3,100-capacity Troxy has become the first UK theatre to install the new JBL VTX A12 line array system, by US-based manufacturer Harman Professional Solutions.
The move follows a thorough investigation of rival systems according to Tom Sutton-Roberts general manager at the venue, which has concerts with Oh Sees, Taking Back Sunday and SEL.
The system was chosen following collaboration between sounds specialist SSE Audio Group, Harman and its UK distributor Sound Technology. Among other items installed were two Soundcraft Vi3000 mixing consoles with Vi Stageboxes.
“Troxy needs a system which is versatile for both live music and corporate events and the JBL VTX A12 certainly fits the bill,” says Sutton-Roberts. “We have worked closely with all parties to specify and install a truly state-of-the-art system to offer promoters.”
Sound Technology application engineer Stuart Strachan, adds, “Troxy is a very versatile venue, which changes its layout on an event-by-event basis, and this system design is flexible to match any layout of the room.
“With JBL’s Performance Manager software, the venue staff can recall various presets, created in the commissioning stage, in order to facilitate the most commonly used configurations. Fine adjustments can then be made in the software for any deviations from these configurations,” he explains.
