Race for the CurePuerto Rico’s annual Susan G Komen Race for the Cure was held recently in San Juan, with leading audio supply company Ricky’s Audio Corporation using JBL VerTec and VRX line array systems for sound support.

Designed to benefit and raise awareness for breast cancer research, the event took place at the Coliseum of Puerto Rico and featured a line-up of musical artists for more than 15,000 participants who walked and ran to celebrate and remember those affected by the illness.

The main stage used 22 JBL VerTec VT4888DP mid-sized line array boxes fitted with JBL DrivePack technology, situated four separate array locations to cover 270° around the stage. These were supplemented by four VRX932LAP Constant Curvature powered loudspeakers and five VRX918SP Constant Curvature powered subwoofers. The stage monitoring system included 14 JBL VP7212MDP powered monitors. Eight Crown MA3600vz amplifiers provided additional power for fill speakers. The entire loudspeaker system was managed with two dbx 4800 Driverack units, used to configure and equalise 12 discrete coverage zones.

Ricardo Heredia, owner of Ricky’s Audio Corporation, and engineer Nestor J Heredia, designed and deployed the set-up to handle the variety of performances and to serve as the general public address: ‘The system performed very nicely and the entire event went according to plan,’ owner Ricardo Heredia says. ‘We continue to rely on VerTec line arrays for our biggest events and they continue to impress everyone, from the engineers to the artists to the crowds. We have very high expectations for JBL, and the VerTec line arrays met those expectations at the Race for the Cure.’
