“I’ve always been a connoisseur of audio gear, and at this point in my career I require absolutes,” Jackson says. “Since my purchase of an UltraSeries system several years ago, self-powered speakers from Meyer have been a revelation to me. Now that I’ve gone to the CQ-1 system, I think it’s made me an even better artist. From the first time I tried the CQ-1 and put it through its paces, I realized that the amazingly clean and accurate signal of these loudspeakers is what I’ve been looking for. It sounds equally good at low, mid, and high volume levels.”more
Mentioned in this July 1, 2009 *Mix Online* article. > Tending to all of this activity is front-of-house engineer Blake Suib, who is taking the FOH reins, having spent countless hours behind a monitor board for Spears, as well as for such artists as Seal, Destiny's Child, Janet Jackson, Annie Lennox and many more. One would think that making the transition from the side of the stage to FOH would be a bit difficult, but Suib has seamlessly made the change, pointing out that the tour's Meyer Sound P.A. has been instrumental in switching positions. As the tour is in the round, Suib and company employ 64 MILOs, split up into four hangs (16 per hang) and 32 MICAs split up into two hangs (16 per hang). In addition, there are 12 M'elodies in the center rig (four hangs) and HP-700 subs with some M'elodies on top “to kind of fill in the floor,” Suib says. Rounding out the substantial and clear-sounding system are hanging MSL4s and C1s [*sic*] for Spears' stage monitors.more
