Live Sound Company Upgrades to MONARC MLA3 System

"With every show, I continue to be impressed with the overall MLA3 package, the efficiency is incredible from the reduced number of amplifiers it takes to power the system, to how light and easy it is to set up and take down, there is less cabling lying around and plenty of room for any additional applications, I can easily meet and exceed the needs of my clients, I am very happy"

Alex Moran started his audio career in 1975, and when he opened Spider Ranch Productions in 2003, he envisioned building a live sound and audio/visual, empire in the northern California and the Bay areas. After thirteen years of continual growth and intensive labor, Alex has taken one step closer to making his dream a reality. In April of 2006 Spider Ranch Productions purchased a large MLA3 line array system from McCauley Sound. When asked why he chose the MLA3 system he simply said, “More bang less truck”.

Alex has been using McCauley products and components since 1989 and appreciates how McCauley Sound offers field serviceable replacement diaphragms and baskets. But above all, Alex said that the sound quality coming out of the McCauley boxes far surpassed that of its’ competitors. “The MLA3 was more musical sounding then the other systems I tested. Many of the systems I listened to didn’t envelope me the way the McCauley System did, when listening to the MLA3, I felt like I was swimming in pure sound! And when sonically matched, the MLA3 exceeded any other system.”

The line array system is a departure from the conventionally-loaded ground stack product that Spider Ranch had been using. Alex was in need of a system that left a small footprint, yet offered even coverage over distance. “I do a lot of large shows, many of which are coupled with video applications, and because we take

great pride in the customer service aspect of our company I felt that it was important to take into consideration the needs of our customers. I wanted to make sure that our new system was heard and not seen, so to speak.” The unique integrated rigging system that the MONARC array line offers was the answer he was looking for. Alex goes on to explain, “With every show, I continue to be impressed with the overall MLA3 package, the efficiency is incredible from the reduced number of amplifiers it takes to power the system, to how light and easy it is to set up and take down, there is less cabling lying around and plenty of room for any additional applications, I can easily meet and exceed the needs of my clients, I am very happy.”

Spider Ranch Productions specializes in local events such as installations, live performances, background music and paging systems, corporate A/V as well personal gatherings. Spider Ranch is looking forward to providing continued excellent customer service to an expanding customer base.
