The sound system for the new Dallas House of Blues features Electro-Voice XLC DVX line arrays, Electro-Voice P and CP Series amplifiers, Midas mixing consoles and Klark Teknik Square One signal processing.

The Dallas House of Blues features two main hangs of eight XLC DVX per side, each split in the middle with two XLC118 subs. System designer Harry Witz (former db Sound president and now general manager at Clair Showco, Chicago) says splitting the top four and bottom four XLC DVX enclosures with two subs effectively makes each hang operate as two individual arrays. Individual processing for upstairs and downstairs coverage eliminates the need for upstairs delays, and the sub-split configuration helps minimize main system slapback from the front of the balcony back onto the stage. Three custom-designed Quad 18 subwoofers located under the stage feature new Electro-Voice DVX 18-inch drivers.
