Pentatonix On Tour With L-Acoustics K2 Array
Sound Image carries L-Acoustics rig on Grammy-winner’s sold-out North American tour.
|ESCONDIDO, CA – Ever since the group’s 2011 victory on NBC’s The Sing-Off, Pentatonix has steadily been making a name for itself. Now, with a 2015 Grammy Award and nearly a billion cumulative YouTube channel video views, the five-piece a cappella troupe recently wrapped up a completely sold-out 21-date tour of North America with an L-Acoustics K2 line array.
Escondido, California-based Sound Image served as the sound reinforcement provider for the trek and supplied the K2 system at the request of Chris Aman, who did double-duty as both the group’s front of house engineer and production manager.
Aman had his first opportunity to mix on K2 last year when Dispatch, the band he was touring with at the time, headlined the final night of Bridgeport, Connecticut’s Gathering of the Vibes music festival. “I had heard good things about K2, but when I actually got the chance to turn it on for myself, my reaction was, ‘wow… yes.’” he recalls. “With every other rig there have always been ‘normal’ adjustments that needed to be made, like compensating for waveguide turbulence or turning the horns down several dB. But I immediately noticed that K2 was much closer to what I was looking for, especially in the high frequency. I made one tiny little cut around 2.5k that day and, boom, it was there.”
