FBT Muse turns up for ‘Art of Legends’ showcase

The Emnotweni Arena in Mbombela was the venue for the “Art of Legends” event March 2024, honouring the luminaries of music, arts, and literature from the Mpumalanga province. The Department of Arts and Culture hosted the celebration, with JVR Events providing essential technical support for sound, stage, lighting, and design. The JVR Events team was spearheaded by System Engineers Sakkie Coetzer and Anthony Jenkinson, alongside Audio Engineer Steven Capuli.

The event featured a main PA system of six FBT Muse 210 Line Array Speakers and four 18-inch FBT Muse 218SA Subwoofers, ground-stacked with 3 speakers on each side for optimal sound delivery. Rubber mats were used to secure the speakers atop the subs, “The results were amazing,” stated Coetzer.

For onstage monitoring, FBT Vertus 12-inch monitors were chosen for the main band, allowing performers to hear themselves clearly.

The choice of FBT equipment was strategic, with Coetzer commented: “After listening to several brands, I heard FBT, and I just knew that that’s my PA,” he remarked. “Both bands and customers who use our gear always praise the PA’s sound quality.”
