Soundbridge???……..YEAH……SOUNDBRIDGE….!!!!!

After decades of live shows, tours, and using various speaker manufacturers various speaker designs from JBL Vertec to Turbosound….VDOSC to D&B, and just about everything in between and on either side, I of course have my favorites, and obviously systems that I am not a big fan of…….but recently back here in Texas, I have found some new speaker boxes that have really impressed me as of late…….they are from a Texas company called Soundbridge……..I first ran into them while freelancing for Tom Bohacek, Scott Powers, and Jade Fontenot at Bayou City Sound here in Houston, TX……

They are the Soundbridge Xyon-7208XY Compact Line Array boxes and the Soundbridge Quad-7218SWX sub boxes.

The top Compact Line Array boxes (Xyon-7208XY) are similar in size and weight to the Adamson
YT10 boxes…….I first used them in Port Arthur, TX at the city’s pre Mardi GRAS Gala about 4 weeks ago…….the 6 boxes per side were flown inside the city’s convention center…..a big room that holds about 5000……they were smooth and crisp sounding and filled the room nicely……very impressive…….

But, it was the bottom end that completely blew me away……the Soundbridge Quad-7218SWX sub boxes were unbelievable…….there were only two boxes per side (four 18’s per side) and not since the old Turbosound Flashlight 21″ subs have so few boxes pushed so much air……simply incredible……tight, punchy, and whammo……a big bottom end that makes that kick drum hit you hard right in the breast plate……bottom end you can feel as well as hear…….just what I like……..

Then, last week in Austin, TX at SXSW 2011 (the South by Southwest Music Festival), I ran into more of the same Soundbridge system boxes on a big outdoor parking lot stage and they sounded great…….(pics below)…….

Hopefully I will have some more chances to use this Soundbridge system and learn more about it……I urge you to got to the Soundbridge website and check them out……
