Eighth Day Sound, headquartered in Highland Heights, OH with offices in the U.K. and Australia, has announced that more than 200 Adamson E-Series loudspeakers will be joining its inventory to ensure system availability worldwide.
In 2013, Eighth Day Sound acquired one of the first E15 line array systems, which was immediately put into use by a number of national and regional tours. When the Eighth Day technical team determined that the company’s consistent growth required expanding their live sound inventory, they again turned to Adamson.
“When we first bought the Adamson system it was new and still a work in progress,” says Sean Sturge, Eighth Day Sound’s global sales manager. “Since then, we’ve worked closely with their engineering and marketing teams to refine a package that ensures the highest performance, service, and efficiencies for our clients. We’re excited to now be able to field Adamson products everywhere we do business.”
“Every engineer that has been in front of this system agrees that it’s one of the best they’ve ever heard,” adds Owen Orzak, Eighth Day Sound’s director of touring services. “The Adamson package is extremely flexible – able to handle any configuration necessary. It’s also nice that their headquarters are nearby. It makes it even easier to communicate and collaborate with their team.”
In total, Eighth Day Sound is adding 108 E15 and 30 E12 line array enclosures along with 80 units of a new subwoofer that will be launched later in 2015. The boxes will be shared between the U.S., U.K., and Australian offices. The company will first deploy the new PA for the Hot 97 Summer Jam at Metlife Stadium in New Jersey in early June.
“Eighth Day Sound has developed a corporate culture that businesses in and outside of our industry would envy,” says James Oliver, Adamson’s director of marketing and sales. “They have a staff that is passionate for their craft and fully immersed in the selection process for new equipment. Working with their technicians and engineers to find a way to integrate Adamson products into their inventory offering was a challenging and hugely rewarding process.”
Oliver concludes, “To have our product now available wherever Eighth Day does business is something we’re excited to be a part of and we’re looking forward to a long and successful partnership.”
