Over the course of her five-decade career, Gladys Knight has performed at venue’s large and small all around the world. Recently, she took the stage at the Starr of the Desert Arena in Primm, Nevada, accompanied by a Vue al-Class line array system supplied by HAS Productions.

Starr of the Desert ArenaThe company had recently provided a Vue PA system for Chicago and REO Speedwagon at the same venue.

For the Gladys Knight set-up HAS took advantage of the Vue’s Continuous Source Topology (CST), which allowed al-12 and al-8 acoustic elements to be combined into left and right hybrid arrays for improved coverage, sightlines and reduced weight. Thanks to the CST architecture, the combo arrays delivered perfectly linear coverage without the disruptions typically associated with more conventional mixed element arrays.

The HAS team supplied left and right CST clusters that each included eight, large-format al-12 elements above four medium format al-8 elements for down fill. The side-fill system was also all-Vue, with dual al-4 arrays comprised of eight subcompact al-4 elements each. A total of ten VueDrive V6 series and two V4 series Systems Engines provided all power and processing for the arrays, while fully-optimized DSP ensured easy setup and deployment of the CST combo arrays via SystemVue software.

For low-frequency support, HAS supplied 12 hs-221 ACM subwoofers in left and right rows of six – directly in front of the stage. Onboard VueDrive electronics provided power and processing for the subwoofers while facilitating easy integration with the SystemVue network. Avid Profile and Yamaha PM5DRh consoles handled FOH and monitor mixes respectively.

HAS Productions follows the Gladys Knight concert with al-Class line array events at the Soboba Casino in San Jacinto, California, for comedian Gabriel Iglesias, and American funk band, War.
