Elton John - Qualtrics - Vivint Smart Home Arena

Posted by: - on March 6, 2017


Poll Sound recently provided audio support for Elton John at the Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City for the Qualtrics Summit Event Party. Mountain View Staging produced the show and brought us in to guarantee a hassle free audio experience for Elton John and the event participants.

The show covered the entire lower bowl of the arena which is around 6000 seats. We chose to deploy an L-Acoustics rig as we knew that it would provide the most even coverage, consistency and clarity in this particular venue. The left and right main arrays each consisted of 4 K1SB's flown in an array of 12 K2's while the out fill arrays each consisted of 2 SB18's flown above 12 Kara's. Fourteen KS28's in a cardioid configuration took care of the low end requirements on the ground. An additional 6 Kara's took care of front fill needs. The rig was powered by a combination of LA8 and LA12X racks.

Due to a Utah Jazz basketball game the night before we had to load in everybody on the day of the show, with that tight of a load in some pre preparation was needed. Chris Dye headed up the physical pre-preparation at the shop by pre-programing amplifiers, building the L-Acoustics Network Manager File and labeling speaker and drive cables. Tyler Robinson and Bennett Jensen took care of getting the Soundvision Model dialed in along with determining some pre tuning FIR filters for the rig as there would not be much time to tune the rig. This pre preparation proved to be invaluable and come the day of the show we met all deadlines and had the rig operational right on schedule.

Please enjoy the time lapse video below of the load in and setup of the show.
