Winston-Salem, NC, September 28, 2010 – Special Event Services, the powerhouse touring company that provides turnkey audio, video, lighting and staging services for major evangelical and music events, recently started changing over its Powersoft K8 amplifiers to K10 models through Powersoft's unique Model Step-Up card system. As part of Powersoft's green-design philosophy where all K6, K8 and K10 models share the identical hardware platform (the same relationship is in place for K2 to K3 models), the Model Step-Up cards allow companies like Special Event Services to unlock extra power capabilities on demand without the need to purchase new units. This step up system gives users the flexibility to grow into new sound system capabilities on demand without the need to sell existing inventory and re-tool racks with entirely new amplifiers.
“We are very excited about the step-up capabilities of Powersoft amplifiers,” says Jason Farah, co-owner of Special Event Services. “We own 64 K8 Powersoft amplifiers that were powering dual 18-inch sub woofer cabinets. We recently made the decision to upgrade some of our systems to Outline Lab 21 subwoofers, but felt those cabinets needed the greater output power of a Powersoft K10. Powersoft's unique design lets me purchase a Model Step-Up card that is essentially equivalent to the price difference between the different models. As I receive each Lab 21 shipment, I will upgrade my power amplifiers to match. The Model Step-Up cards help preserve my investment in the Powersoft K8s, while allowing me to keep all my existing racks and associated wiring.”
Special Event Services has provided its full range of services over the years for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Joyce Meyer Ministries, Joel Osteen Ministries and Dr. David Jeremiah, among others for the evangelical clients and for Hootie and the Blowfish, the Darius Rucker Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bret Michaels, .38 Special, and Joe Bonamassa representing some of the music clients. With this level of clientele, reliability is job one and Powersoft has set a very high benchmark for Special Event Services.
“We have used our K8s for over a year and they have turned in a 100-percent perfect performance for us,” continues Farah. “We work very hard to provide complete, high-level service for all our clients and that is why they stay with us. Perfect reliability is a bar that you cannot beat and that is exactly what we need for the live mega-events we are involved with.”
The K10s offer excellent damping, delivering an exceptionally tight, controlled bass signal that makes the Lab 21 speakers sing. The advantages of this combination are multifaceted for Special Event Services.
“By using the stepped up K10s, I'm now getting all of this sub energy in a room, in an arena or wherever in a tiny amount of rack space – it's crazy,” explains Farah. “I now get a better sound moving fewer cabinets and amplifiers and that is a benefit for both transport and set up. Powersoft is also very efficient so it draws less current and the amps run significantly cooler than traditional amplifiers. All this and I don't lose my original investment in the K8 amplifiers. We see the big touring and live event companies moving into Powersoft and we feel that Powersoft is the wave of the future.”
