"Carvin offers a high-power, flexible vertical column array solution in a modular, expandable form.
Speaking of sound, I was actually pleasantly surprised by the performance of the VELAs. With the eight 3.5-inch cone drivers, I was expecting a midrange-heavy sound, but this was not the case. Instead, the TRx3810A provided a balanced blend; the 400 Hz crossover point was not audible at all and the upper HF response was clear and smooth, sounding more like a 3-way system. "
“The new Vela speaker system was probably the easiest and fastest system to fly out of the box that we have ever seen. The SPL levels were very impressive. We are looking forward to the new season with the Vela system in our inventory”

“The first band starts up and after the first song asked if we could turn down the monitors! I have only heard that only once in my 65 years of life. We had them set to what I thought was about 80 percent volume before feedback. We had so many complements about the quality of the sound can only remember some of them. The most surprising of them was the couple that told us they really enjoyed the show from a mile away on their front deck. They said it was quite buy they could understand every word in the vocals. I grew up working for an Altec contractor and used very large horns........3 feet across and 2 feet high to be able to come close to doing that. I can't tell you how impressed I am with the new Vela system. I was out in the sun and it was 90 degrees and it just didn't care. They are easy to move and set up and even more important they just sound great. Andy Beach was one of our guitarist. He has traveled with many big name bands and has built guitars for Prince and many others. He said this was one of the best systems he has ever worked with. After the show I had several people approach me and asked me if they could work with me and make a production company because we could smoke any of the competition and provide a great service to bands and audiences in our area. I just put this together because I love a good quality sound system to show people it could be done and us it to support my service dog project. I may now grow way beyond my first goals and I can have some fun and make some money to provide more dogs for people in need. I has been great working with you and I am looking forward to a great future together!”

“I love using the Carvin TRx3810 Vela for theatre applications. They have a focused sound and excellent dispersion.”
