The 90s were a great era for rock music, and the key albums from this era continue to be influential on music today. Live’s “Throwing Copper” is a shining example of this. Having sold over 20 million records worldwide since the mid-90s, Live has established itself as one of rock-music’s modern day strongholds. In 2014, Live reemerged with their newest offering, “The Turn”, which features pop-sensibility with a guitar-driven push reminiscent to their early days.

Live approached us about building a new backline, just to see if it could be done. Know for their towering backdrop of amplifiers, the band wanted to emulate the stage presence of full-stacks with a line of our 6x12s. When all was said and done, we built six 6x12s, three for guitar and three for bass, as well as a couple of 2x12s. This eight cab backbone was our biggest build to date and quite challenging. The guitar cabs feature a unique split within the enclosure, which separates the one cab into a 4×12 and 2×12 stack. The top 4×12 is used for a dry signal, while the bottom 2×12 is utilized during the wet, effects driven playing. The cabs are loaded with Eminence Wizards and Deltas.
