Irish Village adds Meyer
UAE: The Irish Village in Dubai has installed a Meyer Sound system based around UPJunior-XP 48 V VariO loudspeakers to cover its recently expanded terrace. Abu Dhabi-based Systech Middle East specified, installed, and commissioned the new system.
‘The UPJunior-XPs were our first choice because they set a new standard for power and clarity in systems suitable for outdoor applications,’ said Malek Ghorayeb, general manager of Systech Middle East. ‘They are also very reliable - vital for a venue that makes heavy use of its PA.’
Designed to cover the large terrace, the outdoor system includes eight UPJunior-XP loudspeakers, two UPA-1P loudspeakers, and two 500-HP subwoofers. System drive and alignment is provided by a Galileo loudspeaker management system with a Galileo 616 processor.
‘Since the installation of the Meyer speakers, the response from customers has been very positive,’ noted Dave Cattanach, The Irish Village’s general manager. ‘The balance and clarity of the sound has noticeably improved. Plus, the musicians love it.’
Drew Jones, a regular performer at The Irish Village both as a soloist and a member of the four-piece band The Maplejacks, added: ‘With the Meyer speakers, the venue has an even volume wherever you sit, along with added clarity and warmth. It really feels like people can actually appreciate what I’m playing now.’
