Last year, country artist Levi Riggs started touring with an HDL20-A rig. An up-and-comer at the time, Riggs had a hit single last year “There’s Still A Place For That,” and is currently riding at #37 on the Nashville Music Row charts. If you like country music the Levi Riggs show is high energy, leave-it-all-on-the-stage, authentic, and as-real-as-it-gets country music.
When he got the HDL20-A rig last year, he told us at RCF, “I had been touring with a different system for the last year or two but as my fan base has grown so has the size of the venues I perform in,” Riggs explains. “It was important that I have a system that could produce the volume I need without any distortion. When I heard the D Line series array I knew it was exactly what I was looking for.” As Riggs prepares for this summer’s tour, including a stop at the CMA Fest this weekend (June 6-8), he tells us, “I couldn't be more proud of my RCF rig. It has been a difference maker when it comes to playing large events. Artists at my level that are touring with their own P.A. just can't compete with the RCF rig I am running and RandyWise (FOH engineer) really makes it shine. It sets me apart.” The system, which consists of eight HDL20-A line array modules and four SUB 8006-AS subwoofers, more than accommodates the current and future needs of the upcoming talent. “Because it’s scalable we can use four HDL20-As and two of the SUB 8006-AS subs to great effect in smaller venues or add more tops and bottoms seamlessly for more coverage at larger shows,” says Riggs. “It has also been extremely useful to be able to adjust the arrays so that they are covering audience areas directly in front of the stage or up in a mezzanine – it makes the system exceptionally flexible.”

2014 is the year of the Mondovisione Tour. The Italian rocker Luciano Ligabue will perform around all the main soccer stadiums in Italy throughout the entire summer. It is a journey full of expectation and emotion, as Ligabue has decided to tour with sound reinforcement from RCF, the legendary company from Reggio Emilia which sets the benchmark for excellence in the international professional amplification industry. In 2013 Ligabue and his band tested the RCF audio system, with great satisfaction, at both the Royal Albert Hall in London and at the Arena di Verona. RCF engineers along with the artist’s audio technicians were able to study the best system structure for this tour, conceived for the major Italian stadiums. 48 x TTL55-A speakers will be used as front fill (24 each side) and 40 x TTL55-A as side fill (20 each side). Two central clusters of 12 TTL36-AS subwoofers each, will be hung on the rear of the stage, in an unusual position over the band but technically optimised to avoid interference — thanks to the steering technology of RCF RDnet.
12 TTL 33-A modules, set on the stage, will help direct the sound toward the audience; the TT25-SMA and TT45-SMA stage monitors will be specifically dedicated for the musicians’ monitoring.
Providing low-end extension will be TTS56-A subwoofers, set in cardioid configuration on the floor, with a curved design to allow a uniform distribution of low frequencies throughout the listening area.
The main system will be controlled by RDNet, RCF’s proprietary network, which will allow the technicians to set and control the system parameters in an optimal way for every situation.

(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.

From 2014 forward, we'll be taking customer service and after-sales support for our brands to a whole new level, and bringing the service department back home and having total control over is it a big part of that. For one, we're making this move to respond to a market where things like service, trust and good business relationships are becoming increasingly important alongside the actual product. For the other, we're optimizing our position in the professional rental and install business, which now accounts for a significant share of our activities."
