Music reality show “Sing My Song” is aired by CCTV3 and recently became a ratings winner in China. With a live audience of 300 people, the popularity of the show is largely attributed to its emphasis on original songs created by independent artists. To complement the ambitious direction of the show, HARMAN’s JBL VTX V25 line array loudspeakers were installed at the show’s live studio to enable the singers to showcase their original pieces of music.
Amidst many musical talent shows that focus on the contestants’ ability to sing cover songs, “Sing My Song” appeals to the artists’ creativity, rekindling the life and spirit of original compositions. The powerful, yet pure-sounding JBL VTX Series loudspeakers are the perfect choice for this program, as they deliver even coverage throughout the studio.
The main PA system features two groups of 10 JBL VTX V25 fullsize line array loudspeakers each that are suspended and cover three sides of the stage. Beneath the stage are three groups of four JBL VTX S28 subwoofers each. Thanks to the JBL VTX LAC (Line Array Calculator) Software, each projected area of the loudspeakers is taken into consideration to calculate the energy output of each loudspeaker.
“The JBL VTX loudspeakers perform and sound amazing,” said Jin Shaogang, music and pitch instructor for the show. “The mids and highs of the V25 loudspeakers sound smooth and transparent, while the JBL S28 subwoofers pack a lot of power and add plenty of depth to the sound.” The performance of the VTX loudspeakers also sound impressive on a variety of instruments, and their world-class sound quality is able to bring entire audiences to their feet.
Thirty-two Crown I-Tech 12000 HD amplifiers power the loudspeakers, and the entire system is connected using JBL HiQnet Performance Manager™ software, for the convenience of uploading the configurations for all the equipment during installation and sound debugging during live shows.
Four instructors Liu Huan, Yang Kun, Zhou Huajian, Cai Jianya were truly impressed by the “good songs and good sounds,” in reference to the excellent live audio quality that the JBL VTX line array loudspeakers bring to any stage.
