FOH Online gives details from Fontes Pro Sound & Light install at The Mirage, in Medesto, California.
Celebrations in the Indian community are serious business. Festivals are typically an unrestrained blend of color, flavor and sound. And weddings, according to George Fontes, managing director of Fontes Pro Sound & Light, are nothing short of high-decibel exhilaration. So, when Mirage, an Indian wedding and banquet hall in Sacramento, CA, contacted him to install a new sound system last month, Fontes turned to FBT. He knew anything he installed would be pushed to concert-level limits and he wanted to ensure crisp, clean sound at every event – wherever guests were standing in 22,000 square feet of space.
“There are several reasons I chose FBT for this job,” said Fontes. “One thing I love about the brand is that they don’t outsource; everything down to their amp modules is done in house. You just don’t find that anymore. All of that quality control proves that they really care about their products, and you not only see it – you hear it.
We’ve literally taken FBT products within their respective price categories, and compared them to all the other major manufacturers that everyone knows and loves. FBT has always come out on top in build and sound quality. In some cases, I’d even say they’re underpriced, because performance-wise, they compare to products that cost twice as much.”
