(Edison, New Jersey) Michigan’s Thunder Audio Inc. has a relationship with tour management company Peachez Entertainment Services that stretches back over 20 years – before Tyler Perry began his incredibly prolific theater, TV and film career. Since 1999, Mr. Perry has produced a new stage production almost every year, and the 300 live shows that he presents each year in association with Peachez Entertainment Services are attended by an average of 35,000 people per week. His latest stage play, “Hell Hath No Fury Like a Woman Scorned”, owes its clarity of sound to Thunder Audio and RCF.
“Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scorned” is a production of nine actors, including Patrice Lovely from the hit TV sitcom "Love Thy Neighbor" and R&B Artist Cheryl "Pepsii" Riley. The show, which also includes a five-piece band and three backing vocalists, segues from spoken dialogue right into songs and back again, and requires a system to meet these unique sonic demands. Thunder Audio Inc. has provided an RCF system, including 28 TTL55-A Line Array Modules and 4 TTL36-AS subwoofers, that perfectly fills the bill. “The actors use lavalier mics, which aren’t really designed for loud-volume singing – the challenge is making that sound not too harsh and loud, while preserving the clarity of the spoken parts,” says Ron Hurd, Thunder Audio Engineer and FOH Engineer for the tour. Hurd has engineered sound on Tyler Perry’s shows since 2000, and he’s seen a dramatic turnaround in theatergoers’ post-show comments as they exit past the soundboard since incorporating RCF into the production. “With RCF, the transition from voice to song has been so seamless,” says Hurd. “We used to get some comments from patrons as they were leaving about how the vocals were hard to understand, or that the musical numbers were too loud… Now we get compliments on the music and the clarity of the actors’ voices.” Production Director Norman Williams of Peachez Entertainment Services has presided over every theater date of the tour, primarily venues with an average of 3,000 seats, and has similar praise for Thunder Audio and RCF.
“Sometimes we have very tight load-in schedules, and the RCF system is incredibly easy to load in and get positioned,” says Williams. “Thunder Audio’s customer service is outstanding,” Williams continues. He recalls a situation at a show in Chicago, where additional sound equipment was needed “Within six hours, Thunder Audio had a truck down here from Detroit with the necessary gear.”

Italian loudspeaker manufacturer RCF has entered into a strategic alliance with Henderson, Tennessee-based tour audio provided 242 Concepts to showcase the RCF HDL20-A line arrays and SUB-8006AS subwoofers on the 2014 George Thorogood and The Destroyers 40th Anniversary Tour. “We excited to have a lightweight, fantastic sounding box that is self-powered, and can fit into the vast array of venues we encounter,” notes Production Manager/FOH Engineer Jeff Pitt. The band first got the opportunity to use the system at the Tennessee Theatre in Knoxville, Tennessee. “We had awesome coverage, and a great evening mixing on the boxes,” said Pitt.
For George Thorogood and his longtime band The Destroyers – Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) – their 40th anniversary is indestructible proof that staying true to yourself and the music can still mean something. Over the course of sixteen studio albums (including six Gold and two Platinum), they would storm the charts over their illustrious career with a catalog of iconic hits that includes “Who Do You Love”, “I Drink Alone”, “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer”, “Move It On Over”, “Bad To The Bone” and more, being able to share it with audiences is what will always matter to Thorogood. The tour coincides with the release of the George Thorogood & The Destroyers ICON album and the Eagle Rock Entertainment live DVD Live At Montreux. For the tour, 242 Concepts is taking 24 HDL20-A along with 12 SUB-8006AS subwoofers for use dependent on size of venue. The RCF HDL20-A is a 1,400-watt two-way line array cabinet with two 10” low frequency/mid frequency transducers coupled with a 3” high frequency compression driver capable of achieving 135 dB max SPL. The SUB-8006AS is a 5,000-watt dual 18” subwoofer able to achieve 141 dB max SPL.
Ultimately, the 40 Years Strong Tour is 50% celebration, 50% declaration and 100% Thorogood throwdown. But after four decades as one of the most consistent – and consistently unique – careers in rock, can a guitar-slinger still at the top of his game choose a moment that sums it all up? “Stan Musial was once asked, ‘What was the greatest day of your career?’ And Stan said ‘Every day when I walk onto the field is the greatest day.’ I feel the same way,” George says. “Every night when I walk out on that stage is the highlight of my career. I hit that first chord, the band kicks in, and we hear the audience respond. That’s the rush. 40 years into this, and every night, that's still the only moment that matters.”
For George Thorogood & The Destroyers – and for rock & roll – it doesn’t get stronger than that. And their choice to make it happen – RCF. Tour dates and information are available at www.georgethorogood.com

Here’s the image of a true mobile DJ – the Mix on Wheels self-contained mobile DJ entertainment experience. After touring with a major soft drink company and working with Central Florida theme parks, DJ Charles Miles became inspired to create a self-contained mobile entertainment experience by building a complete system on wheels.
The success has been overwhelming, and Orlando, Florida-based Mix on Wheels now offers three system packages – one built into a Hummer H3, one in a Honda Element and one in a Mini Cooper Clubman. By designing the vehicles with a blank canvas exterior, clients can use for their own brand marketing with magnet signage or wraps rather than a billboard for a DJ company. The DJ system is self-contained, there’s onboard LCD screens for custom media playback, LED light effects and Lamborghini doors trick out the vehicles. The gear of choice – RCF loudspeakers for the PA and Pioneer gear for the DJ gear onboard. Why? “The stuff just doesn’t fail,” says company owner Charles Miles.
Once parked, the speakers are placed on a custom designed flat all-steel roof rack. Mix on Wheels choice of speakers include active RCF ART-725 15” 2-way cabinets or HD32-A 12” 2-way cabinets, depending on the vehicle. They simply plug into an input box on the roof panel, with the vehicle capable of generating its own power for outdoor events (and are certified for indoor events as well). With a high dispersion output, Miles sums up the sound of RCF – “they scream!” He notes he seldom has to add a subwoofer, even when playing EDM or Hip Hop music. “We find we don’t have to adjust EQ because of how the cabinets are tuned, getting the most out of the boxes without needing to add a subwoofer in the system. And we always get compliments on our sound,” Miles adds.
“We like the RCF boxes because they are so efficient they don’t pull a lot of power,” going on to note, “they are the only speakers that never shut down when it gets hot. We do a lot of outdoor events on the beaches and in the parks, and it gets hot in Florida. We’ve never had one ever go into thermal load.” A unique approach to the mobile DJ market, Mix on Wheels (www.mixonwheels.com) was named Best Industry Innovation Esprit Award from the International Special Events Society, as well as a Gala Award nomination as Best New Innovative Event Technology by Special Events magazine.

The Cannstatter Wasen may well be one of the fairest of fairs and it is certainly among the world's biggest. Every year more than three million people come to enjoy a wealth of offerings extended by 320 exhibitors and caterers in and around the large beer tents.
The Göckelesmaier tent, a historic venue with a rich heritage, holds over 3,800 people in its main seating area and VIP boxes. Measuring 70 by 42 meters, it treats audience to culinary delights and varied entertainment. All kinds of events and live acts figure prominently on the stage, including performances by famous bands and artists.
A program as varied as this poses some daunting acoustical challenges. Stringent noise pollution regulations certainly do not make things easier. Soundline, a company from Untermeitingen, stepped up to develop and implement a very special solution for the tent.
The greatest challenge was satisfying the demands of the venue's operator while covering different zones within the tent. Although this does not sound like much of a feat, the situation was tricky. For one, the PA would have to provide uniform SPL and coverage all across the main seating area at very different volumes dictated by the level of crowd noise. The volume for the VIP boxes would have to be individually adjustable by the head waiters to cater to the wishes of the guests in the boxes. Finally, it all had to be incorporated into a noise management plan required by the operator to ensure that the volume outside the tent would not exceed a mean level of 80db (A). So a great deal of planning effort was required to keep from jeopardizing the tent's operating permit.
Once again, Soundline owner-operator Robert Reichle relied entirely on RCF to get the job done. Ease data are available for these systems. They were loaded to Ease and Ease Focus II to generate an accurate 3D simulation and compute the levels for the tent. The outcome provided the basis for the overall sound reinforcement plan, which was then submitted for approval.
"The fact that we had Ease data available for all TT + speakers (RCF Touring & Theatre Series) made it so much easier to prepare the sound reinforcement plan and put it into action. We have been thoroughly satisfied RCF users for years now, and I knew straightaway that we would be able to work out a suitable concept with RCF products," says Robert (Robby) Reichle.
Eight TTL33-A MKII enclosures were deployed for the front-of-house PA. Two TT1-A units served as a front-fill. Six each TTL31-A MKIIs covered the sides, and six TTS-56As and six TTS 36-As were configured in a cardioid set-up. The VIP boxes were equipped with TT08-As and TT052-As.
"It all worked wonderfully. I was very much looking forward to how the Stihl Timber Sports Event would work out with 70HP chainsaws roaring away while speakers the presenters spoke and music was piped in. My expectations, which were very high, were exceeded by a considerable margin," adds Robert with a smile.
