Big Sound for Lady Antebellum and Jacob Davis

Posted by: Tyler Robinson - Systems Technician on March 6, 2016


Providing professional audio solutions for all types of entertainers is what we do and this past weekend we had the privilege of providing a sound system for Jacob Davis and Lady Antebellum.

Jacob Davis is an up and coming country music star the got the show started for us, he and his band were traveling light so it was up to us to provide them with all their audio needs. We provided microphones, stands, cabling, in-ear monitors, mixing consoles and engineers for both house and monitors. While I spend most of my summer playing system tech, once in a while there comes a time when I get to mix, this being one of those times I chose to bring an SSL Live L500+ to handle things out at FOH. Jacob and his band did a fantastic job playing which allowed for me to have a very creative fun time mixing them.

To satisfy the main sound system requirements for both bands we choose to deploy a d&b audiotechnik J series sound system. We flew 12 J's per side which was the perfect amount of boxes based on available trim height and venue size. We then deployed 20 J-Subs stacked on the ground and time aligned them to get the least amount of lobing / comb filtering using d&b's arrayCalc and SysTune. The low frequency coverage was exceptional and was just the right amount.

Working with Lady Antebellum's crew was a very positive experience, and their trusted sound engineer "Scoop" did a fantastic job translating their performance into a memorable exciting aural experience for all who attended the show. He worked off of a DigiCo SD5 that when paired with the d&b sound system and tuned with a Lake processor made things sound like they were straight out of the studio!
