Berlin, Germany (March 25, 2011)–Berlin’s Berghain dance club has wrapped up its first year of operation with a Meyer Sound system in its exclusive Panorama Bar.
Installed by Schalldruck of Berlin, the sound system for the bar features a pair of JM-1P loudspeakers in each corner of the dance floor. Bass fills the space from two hidden stacks of three-each 600-HP subwoofers, while an L-C-R system with three UPA-2P loudspeakers and a 500-HP subwoofer provides DJ monitoring. Both systems are optimized and driven by a Galileo loudspeaker management system with a Galileo 616 processor.
“We had been asked to update the Panorama Bar’s sound system as part of a partial redesign and technical upgrade of the room,” recalls Werner Eicker, managing director of Schalldruck. “We immediately suggested a Meyer Sound system based on JM-1Ps, and their performance quickly convinced the club’s management. The JM-1Ps can produce extremely high SPL with very low distortion, and they focus all the energy on the dance floor.”
Eicker also credits Galileo: “Galileo allowed us to provide different setups, which can then be selected to work with the DJ’s personal equipment and the desired SPL.”
Berghian, which was launched six years ago as the successor to the Ostgut Club, is located inside a former electric power plant.
