The spring Live Sound International (LSI) Loudspeaker Demo 2017 — a.k.a., “The Ultimate Loudspeaker Experience” — will take place this March during the USITT show in St. Louis, Missouri. The demo will be held in the Ferrara Theater, a 1,400-seat, multi-level, fan-shaped, state-of-the-art live performance proscenium venue, which will allow attendees to evaluate loudspeakers in an actual relevant environment.
Loudspeakers will reside on the main stage. Smaller-format systems will also be featured at the demo and will reside directly below their respective larger-format systems. Subwoofers will be flown on flaced on the floor.
Top theater architects, sound designers and production personnel will be on site to explore new products and technologies.
Held in conjunction with USITT, the loudspeaker demo is a must-have experience for live sound professionals. The loudspeaker demo provides attendees with the rare opportunity to listen to a variety of systems (line arrays and portable systems) in a controlled environment.
During each compact and portable session, systems are fed identical music tracks. Listeners can evaluate what they hear and also observe each system’s scale, components and other important details, in addition to getting further technical details and pricing information from qualified representatives of each company participating in the demo.
Six manufacturers provide compact and portable loudspeaker systems for evaluation. Click on the logos (right) to see specific information about which systems the company will bring to the demo.
The technology sponsors are also listed — their continued support takes the demonstration to higher levels each year.
Manufacturers have donated valuable audio tools for attendees to win after each product demonstration.
Registration for the Live Sound Loudspeaker Demo is FREE. The actual registration process takes place on the USITT website.
