Webster Hall, which has seen its share of live acts — Prohibition-era balls, a recording space for RCA Records' artists and numerous rock acts — has brought in a new sound reinforcement system with the assistance of promoter The Bowery Presents' system designer, Matthew Kasha. “It's a very good-looking club,” Kasha says, “so there wasn't a lot of acoustic treatment that we would be able to do. We had to make sure that the footprint of the speaker system did not dominate the stage proscenium.”

The venue's twin dV-DOSC/dV-SUB line source arrays — each comprises one dV-SUB with 12 dv-DOSC cabinets flown below and three additional dV-SUBs hung inches above show trim — were set up on a motorized rig. “We're able to pull it back in-between shows,” Kasha says. “That's how we ended up with this extended line array situation, which sounds just fantastic and gets out of the way really nicely.” Key to the space's flexibility is the temporary rolling control room with outboard gear and a Midas Heritage 3000 attached. A permanent FOH position is currently being installed.
