The first Electro-Voice mid-sized line array loudspeaker system in East Africa has been delivered by Audio Visual Engineering (AVE) to Kenya-based Live Gigs Co-Operative AV.

The system was first demonstrated – by AVE – in Kenya during last December’s Kenya Music Week.

The EV rig acquired by Live Gigs Co-Operative includes 12 XLC 127 DVX, two Dx46 processors and six CP4000S amps. The EV Dx46 IP-based DSP enables the user to control the entire system from FOH using wireless network protocols. Complete system control and supervision are achieved via IRIS-Net software.

“Electro-Voice systems have a great reputation worldwide,” said Tom Awando from Live Gigs Co-Operative AV Ltd. “We were in the market looking for a high quality mid-sized line array, and found the EV XLC’s size-to-power ratio tough to beat.”

The support offered by AVE was also “key to our decision, both in terms of technical and after-sales support,” said Live Gigs’ Mohammed Shafiq.

Live Gigs, said EV MEA technical support manager Tony Sawyer, is “extremely satisfied with the sound system’s performance thus far”.
