ELKHART, Indiana – In a unique and challenging live sound application, Audio Analysts of Colorado Springs, CO utilized Crown I-Tech amplifiers for the monitor system at the Super Bowl XLIII Halftime Show featuring Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band held at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL on February 1, 2009. This year’s Super Bowl was broadcast to 230 countries worldwide and was viewed by a total of 94.5 million people in the United States alone.
“All wedge amplifiers were Crown I-Tech, we utilized about 32 for the various mixes and they performed great during the show, stated Albert Leccese, Vice President of Engineering and Owner of Audio Analysts. “We’ve come to rely on Crown amplifiers in many of our major live sound applications, they are excellent because of the high level of control and power they offer.”
Crown I-Tech amplifiers feature advanced DSP processing and a built-in LCD screen on the front panel allowing for basic features and amplifier status to be accessed from the amplifier’s location. Additionally, the reduced size and weight of the I-Tech series and low power needs make it a versatile amplifier that can be used in any live sound application.
“We’ve always utilized Crown and I-Tech is a great amplifier because it’s light weight and it gives you a lot of power. Having worked with Bruce Springsteen for the last 17 years we know how hard he works to deliver the best show possible to his audience. Our goal is always to ensure that everyone from the band to the audience is getting the best sound possible,” added Leccese.
