El Cajon, Calif.’s Sycuan Showcase Theatre, owned and operated by the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation, has hosted such musical acts as Cheap Trick, B.B. King, Michael McDonald, Smokey Robinson and many others despite the room’s rather intimate 500-seat capacity. After renting monitor systems for larger shows during the past few years, the Sycuan Resort and Casino venue made the decision to invest in its own rig and asked San Diego’s J&E Pro Audio Supply to submit a proposal for a new stage reinforcement setup.

One of the primary pieces of gear that J&E specified was a 48-channel, 32-bus Soundcraft Series FIVE Monitor desk, which is now located on the right side of the theater’s stage. “Even though Sycuan is a relatively small room, they certainly don’t skimp on their production quality,” says J&E’s Jaire Lopez. “They had previously been renting a 24-bus FIVE Monitor, which they really liked; however, they wanted to increase their number of stereo in-ear monitor mixes up to 16, so the 32-bus version was perfect for them.

J&E also installed a BSS Audio Soundweb 9088iis, which is routinely applied across four of the monitor mixes, and 13 Crown I-Tech 4000 power amplifiers with onboard DSP to drive and process the venue’s stage wedges.
