M&K Loudspeakers to mix 2016 iHeartRadio Awards audio broadcast
The M&K 2510P monitor, a self-powered version of the M&K Sound S-150, will be used for the three front channels (L, C, R). Two M&K 1611P powered monitors will be used for the rear surround channels and two X-10 push/pull configuration powered subwoofers will reproduce the bass on the stage.
M3 used the same M&K-equipped facility for this year’s Grammy awards broadcast in February.
After the Grammy Awards broadcast, Music Mix Mobile’s Chief Engineer, Joel Singer, commented, “We want to acknowledge the hard work and outstanding effort by all crews and vendors on the (Grammys) show, but have to single out M&K Sound. The imaging, tonality, and sonic presence of the M&K Sound speakers are a welcome addition to Music Mix Mobile. We couldn't have been more thrilled with the control room sound and how it translated to the broadcast world.”
M3’s mobile mixing facilities were designed to accommodate the demands of high channel input, multi-performance television and audio productions. M3 provides broadcast mixing services for some of the biggest musical events in the US, including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies, the GRAMMY Awards and the CMA Awards. Three of M3’s trucks, Eclipse, Voyager and Horizon have been upgraded to M&K Sound speakers.
The 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards will be broadcast live on TBS, TNT and truTV at 8PM EDT, 5PM PDT April 3rd, from the Forum in Los Angeles. The program will also simulcast on iHeartMedia stations nationwide and on the iHeartRadio digital music platform.
