RapcoHorizon Joins The “Soundtrack Of Summer Tour” With Foreigner, Styx And Don Felder

Engineers for All Three Acts Rely on Custom RoadHog and SilverHog Cables and Connectors for Legendary U.S. Concert Series

JACKSON, MO, AUGUST 13, 2014 - RapcoHorizon, an RHC Holdings brand and leading manufacturer of audio/video interfacing and cable equipment, has once again hit the road for another legendary tour. Custom runs of the company’s RoadHog and SilverHog touring cables are serving a variety of needs for the “Soundtrack of Summer Tour,” featuring Foreigner, Styx and special guest Don Felder of the Eagles.

As the group began to prepare for this highly anticipated tour, Lorenzo Banda, monitor engineer for Foreigner and a long-time RapcoHorizon fan, recommended the cables to the Styx and Felder audio teams. Though Foreigner and Styx are co-headliners and Felder is the opening act, each band required its own unique cabling requirements. For Foreigner and Felder, they exclusively are relying on RapcoHorizon – from instruments to speakers – all arranged in custom runs, while the engineers for Styx created their own runs using several of the company’s cables and connectors.

“We started using RapcoHorizon a while back, when the SilverHog cables first came out, and have used them for every performance since,” says Banda. “When the time came for us to plan the Soundtrack of Summer Tour, I knew the cables would be a perfect fit for Styx and Don Felder. When we met up for a gig at Fox News’ Fox & Friends in New York to promote the tour, I introduced the guys to some of their products.”

The stage design for this tour is complex since each group has its own setup, including lasers and special effects for Foreigner, large video walls for Styx and Felder opening each show by descending onto the arena. “Don is completely on board with the cables,” says Banda. “His engineers love it. Their whole stage setup is now using RapcoHorizon, and I think his studio is even starting to fill out with the cables as well. As for Styx, they’re also really stoked about the quality and sound of the cables.”

All RapcoHorizon cables are designed for the working musician. The custom instrument and speaker cables are road-ready and tour tough, employing the most rugged constructions without sacrificing sound quality. The SilverHog cables offer the bands the same durability for which RapcoHorizon is known, but with an even more enhanced sound range.

“I noticed the high-end definition and fidelity on these cables, as it’s much more pristine than others I have heard,” says Banda. “I use a lot of RapcoHorizon’s twisted pair cables, which have great resistance and a high-quality sound. I don’t know all the technical nuances that go into making the cables, but I can definitely hear the difference.”

By the time the tour concludes this September, the RapcoHorizon cables will have made more than 50 stops across the country. “All of the cables have been really slamming and durable,” adds Banda. “We have backups and redundancies, just in case, but we haven’t needed to use them. Sound is our first priority and to have that kind of quality product behind us is one less thing that we have to worry about.”

Banda credits RHC Holdings and RapcoHorizon as being among the best audio companies in the industry with which to work. “Everyone at RapcoHorizon bent over backwards to make sure all of the bands received what they needed in a timely manner,” he says. “They always make us feel like we’re their number one priority and take care of us immediately. They care about us 100 percent whole-heartedly. We’ve worked with other cable companies and you can’t get that level of customer service with anyone else; it really makes a difference.”

RHC Holdings, located in Jackson, Missouri, is one of the world’s largest manufacturers and suppliers of audio, video, home theater, data and telecommunications interfacing products. Comprising RapcoHorizon, Momentum, Pro Co, Pro Co Data, RAT, RoadHog and StageMASTER, each RHC Holdings brand has developed a reputation in many industries for reliability, and superior sound performance. Used worldwide by concert touring sound companies, video and sound contractors, recording studios, system integrators, audiophiles and musicians, the company’s products provide optimal flexibility and premium performance. RHC Holdings also has a state-of-the-art Custom Shop to modify existing products or build new devices to meet any need.
