Jennifer Lopez’s ‘Dancing Again’ world tour recently saw the US pop star make her live debut in Poland, with a performance powered by Powersoft K Series amplifiers.
Lopez’s first ever live show in Poland so the US star perform to almost 25,000 fans at the PGE Arena Stadium in Gda?sk.
With 80 Powersoft K Series amplifiers powering a set of JBL Vertec loudspeakers, both FOH engineer Rick Camp and Yurek Taborowski, owner of Gigantsound Letus, the Polish rental company that provided the equipment, were equally impressed with the system’s performance. “We faced a great acoustic challenge because of the clamshell shaped stadium,” said Taborowski. “We decided to use 60 Powersoft K10 amps for 110 VT4888 cabites (lo, mid, hi) and 20 Powersoft K20 amps for 80 SB1000 subs. About one million Watts of Powersoft green audio power, fed from two 500 kW generators, including one spare, dramatically affected the sound quality and intelligibility in the huge Gda?sk arena.”
Camp, whose client list includes the likes of Madonna, Beyoncé, Anita Baker, Chris Brown, Earth, Wind & Fire, Kelly Clarkson, Mary J. Blige and Natalie Cole, also added: "Powersoft amps loaded with Mario Di Cola’s presets make an okay sounding Vertec PA sound amazing! From the fast and punchy response of the K20 amps on the subs to the K10’s warm and very midrange and hi end, these amps make Vertec sound like a million dollars! It was the world’s best sounding Vertec PA system I’ve ever mixed! Gigantsound crew recruits only first class technicians. With Yurek Taborowski’s leadership they put together a great sound system for me to mix."
Luca Giorgi, Powersoft Pro Audio manager, concluded: “This is the perfect example of what we mean with our ‘Refresh Your System’ advertising message. The project we started for developing high quality presets to be loaded in our K Series amps, in cooperation with Audio Lab Systems Mario Di Cola had exactly the purpose of demonstrating that with our platform we could achieve unexpected sonic performance. We had good reason to believe that we could achieve these results relying on the K Series, high fidelity sound reproduction and the unique features of the K-DSP platform. A special thank you to our historical partner in Poland Yurek Taborowski, whom together with a number of other important companies supported this project. I would also like to thank Rick Camp for having given us the opportunity to prove our Refresh Your System concept; it has been a real pleasure to surprise him in such a positive way.”
