Audio Analysts is supplying sound for Bruce Springsteen and The E-Street Band’s 13-month tour and has recently expanded its JBL VerTec sound system for the stadium leg of the tour, making it the largest VerTec system assembled to date—120 VT4889 speakers and 56 VT4880 subs configured in alternating rows.

All of the speakers and subs are arrayed from the main stage position. No signal-delay towers have typically been required, as Audio Analysts' VerTec sound system design for the Springsteen world tour relies on line array performance characteristics to provide consistent coverage, even for remote seating areas. Crown MA Series power amplifiers and BSS digital system controllers provide sound mixer John Cooper (pictured) with maximum headroom capabilities and signal control flexibility for the massive sound reinforcement rig.
