Rental company Sound Image is providing the live audio system for the current Gwen Stefani world tour, “The Sweet Escape.” Rehearsals began i mid-March at Sound Image’s worldwide headquarters in San Diego, Calif. Front-of-house soundmixer Michelle Sabolchik-Pettinat challenged Sound Image to provide a touring system that was adaptable to both medium- and large-scale venues, and that would deliver consistent sound in the wide variety of indoor and outdoor buildings where the show would play. Tour industry veteran Gary Sanguinet is the project’s system engineer, and longtime Sound Image employee John Schimke is onboard as monitor engineer. Sound Image’s technicians on the road include Nathan Klaeser and Andrew Cawley.

The tour features a multi-array JBL VerTec system, including 60 VT4889 full-size line array elements and 24 VT4880 full-size arrayable subwoofers. Additionally, the system features 56 Crown I-Tech 8000 amplifiers, dbx 4800 DriveRack loudspeaker-management units for signal processing and an AKG HUB 4000 Q Wireless network with AKG in-ear monitors. The entire system is networked through Harman’s HiQnet™ System Architect, enabling all Harman components to integrate into a single remote-control and monitoring software platform.

“We have been using JBL component transducers for over 30 years,” says Dave Shadoan, president of Sound Image. “We own hundreds of VerTec loudspeakers. The majority of our tours are using VerTec systems. And we like working with Harman products because we can network them and they have a sonic purity that we like.”
