Hard Rock Nabq chooses Meyer Sound
EGYPT: A Meyer Sound JM-1P loudspeaker system has been installed at the new Hard Rock Cafe Nabq in Egypt’s Sharm el-Sheik resort area. All audio systems were provided and installed by Cairo-based Modern Touch.
‘The ceilings in the main room are over eight meters high at some points, and the dance floor is under a dome,’ said Magued Makram, president of Modern Touch. ‘It was very hard to generate the high SPLs we wanted without hitting reflective walls and the ceiling. Fortunately, the Meyer Sound JM-1P had exactly the right combination of high power, superb sonic quality, and the precise directional pattern we needed.’
The club’s main system targets the dance floor and adjacent seating areas with twin-flown clusters of three-each JM-1P loudspeakers, with four 600-HP subwoofers floor-stacked underneath. Seventeen UPJunior VariO loudspeakers are spaced high around the room’s perimeter and in adjacent bars and seating areas, providing both main system support as well as softer music for daytime and early evening crowds. Four MM-4XP self-powered loudspeakers are installed in the gift shop, while eight UPJ-1P VariO loudspeakers and four USW-1P subwoofers provide sound on the outdoor terrace.
A Galileo loudspeaker management system employs one Galileo 616 processor for the indoor systems and one Galileo 408 processor for the outdoor loudspeakers. The main system’s Galileo system has three presets for tailoring signal distribution, loudspeaker levels, and EQ for live music, DJ dance music, or pre-recorded music for dining.
‘This installation marks a major step up in sound quality for resorts in the area,’ said Modern Touch’s Hani Naguib who managed the system installation on-site.
