Dorsett Productions Unlimited has received a sizeable SR system from D.A.S. Audio. Serving the southeastern United States, Dorsett Productions Unlimited provides sound, lighting, staging and video services for the live touring and corporate industrial markets. The company’s recent purchase includes 16 D.A.S. Audio Aero CA-38A and 8 Aero CA-28A self-powered line array elements.
According to owner Mike Dorsett, “During our evaluations, we were very impressed with both the build quality and sound quality of the D.A.S. system. The fully captive rigging hardware is excellent — it stays with the cabinets all the time, so you don’t have to worry about pieces getting lost, and this greatly simplifies setup and teardown. Equally important is the fact that this is a self-powered system. Since we don’t have to concern ourselves with separate power amps, setup is faster, easier, and the amount of cabling involved is reduced.”
Dorsett first used the new D.A.S. Audio system in Pensacola, FL, with the Pensacola Children’s Chorus. The group’s annual Christmas on the Coast performance routinely attracts more than 4000 spectators. The new gear was also used for a performance of comedian Katt Williams on New Year’s Eve at the Arie Crown Theater in Chicago and for a Fellowship of Christian Athletes dinner banquet in Mobile, AL.
The D.A.S. Audio CA-28A is a self-powered, biamplified, two-way compact line array module designed for use in multibox arrays. The Aero CA-38A is a self-powered, medium format, three-way line array module that integrates low-, mid- and high-frequency transducers into a single unit. With both models, the enclosure’s trapezoidal shape and rear splay-angle adjusters maintain consistent front spacing, providing a seamless front baffle for improved array performance.
