Former Guns N’ Roses guitarist, Slash (featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators) recently played a sold-out show in Poland at the Spodek in Katowice using JBL VTX line arrays. Providing sound reinforcement was Krakow-based hire company Prosound, with Music Cook supporting the event and making up the inventory required. The sound design saw hangs of eight VTX V25 fullsize line array elements front-facing on each side of the stage, with 12 VTX G28 subs (stacked vertically in L/C/R blocks of four). These were powered by Crown Audio VRack 12000HD amplification systems. Two hangs of six JBL Vertec VT4888DP midsize line array elements were deployed as outfills, with a further eight filling the front rows in the arena to deliver a 180-degree dispersion pattern. Providing technical assistance and crewing duties for the two rental companies were Daniel Dybała, Dominik Piasecki, Piotr Gilewski, Andrzej Jach, Sebastian Dudek, Tomasz Bochenek and Marcin Kowalski.
