Bunbury at New York's Stage 48 with D.A.S. Audio professional sound systems
|Enrique Bunbury’s worldwide tour to promote Licenciado Cantinas, the artist’s newest album and a tribute to Latin American songs, has spanned 13 countries with an impressive 80 concerts and a mix of 54 new and classic hits. The Spanish rock singer recently stopped off at New York’s Stage 48, where the unique sound of Bunbury and his band “Los Santos Inocentes” was brought to life by the unparalleled D.A.S. Audio professional sound systems.
To satisfy the massive demand from Bunbury fans event producer and Stage 48 founder Pedro Zamora organized a two night/two concert that proved a huge success for all involved. Zamora called on the trusted D.A.S. systems for the double concert, collaborating closely with Durán Entertainment for the organization and set-up of Bunbury’s visit to the Stage 48 venue in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen.
The sound team designed and deployed a main P.A. boasting ten large-format D.A.S. Aero 50 line arrays. These 3-way, powerful systems were flown in a classic left/right configuration, five elements each side of the stage. Given Stage 48’s particular characteristics—the club has a 34-foot stage, elevated VIP areas and 3,500 square foot mezzanine balcony overlooking the stage and dance floor—the technicians decided to use two additional groups six D.A.S. Audio powered 12A line array systems to reinforce the venue’s lateral areas.
Four additional Aero 12As handled down fill while six powerful, high-performance D.A.S. LX-218 subwoofers, groundstacked in front of the stage for extra punch, were used for low end support. Powerful Lab.gruppen PLM10000Q amplifiers drove both the Aero 50 line arrays and LX-218 subwoofer systems.
Bunbury’s sound engineer Javier Estrada was delighted with the quantity and quality of the sound pressure and the system’s performance as a whole. Equally pleased with the system was club founder and event producer Pedro Zamora, who had once again trusted in the Aero Series 2, knowing that the benefits of the D.A.S. systems would give him the perfect sound needed for the Bunbury show.
