Jeff Dunham, LIVE! Technologies choose Electro-Voice for "Spark of Insanity" Tour
Jeff Dunham is a genuine cultural phenomenon who has amassed legions of loyal fans with his thousands of sold-out arena, theater, and comedy club performances, countless television guest spots, and three top-rated specials on Comedy Central. Building on this success, Jeff Dunham is taking North America by storm in 2009. Dunham’s newest tour, “ Spark of Insanity,” is playing to sold-out arena crowds. An Electro-Voice sound system from LIVE! Technologies is ensuring Dunham’s show sounds its best.
The tour‘s extensive run includes stops at American Airlines Arena in Dallas and the HP Pavilion in San Jose. To meet the challenges posed by such imposing venues, Dunham and his crew needed a state-of-the-art touring rig with a reputation for outstanding audio quality and reliability. LIVE! Technologies prescribed world-tour-proven Electro-Voice X-Array and X-Line loudspeakers for the job.
The “Spark of Insanity” touring rig comprises twelve X-Line boxes on mains, six X-Array enclosures for side hangs, and a pair of Xw12A speakers for the monitor mix, all powered by EV P3000 amplifiers. The system’s low-frequency control and uniform power response help Dunham’s voice reach the very back rows of every arena every night with warm, intelligible sound, enhancing his unique delivery and wide range of characters.
