Any touring act and their engineers will find a new, larger performance area at The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson, which recently completed a renovation of its set at CBS Television City in L.A., featuring an improved monitor system comprising a dozen new L-Acoustics 112XT and two 115XT stage wedges, all powered by L-Acoustics LA Series amps.

The show's P.A./monitor mixer, Chris Maddalone, says, “I've used V-DOSC and dV-DOSC a bunch of times and loved them.” When the new monitors are used in front of a lead singer, “There's a nice coupling boost that takes place, and it's completely free of the phasing issues that can commonly plague a monitor setup,” Maddalone continues. “The dispersion of the horn on the high-frequency driver is perfect.

“Even though this is a television studio, we still have bands that really crank the volume when they play in here and not one of them has complained about not being able to hear themselves, which was a problem with our old wedges. Now, even the hardest rock and punk acts that come through here are all smiles.”
