Canada (February 19, 2015)—Meyer Sound Lyon systems were recently installed in Edmonton’s Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium (NAJA) and Calgary’s Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium (SAJA).
Both Meyer Sound users since 1983, the 2,538-seat auditoriums selected Lyon when they upgraded M2D line array loudspeakers, a decision made jointly by Mark Belkie and Paul Schmitz, technical coordinators for audio at SAJA and NAJA, respectively.
“In our extensive listening and assessment process, Lyon set the benchmark that all other competing loudspeakers had to meet or exceed, and none could do so,” reports Belkie.
The upgrade for both auditoriums included 22 Lyon-M main line array loudspeakers and six 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements. Six-each Mina and M’elodie line array loudspeakers were installed as center downfill clusters in SAJA and NAJA, respectively. For system drive and optimization, two Galileo Callisto 616 array processors were added to each theatre’s existing Galileo loudspeaker management systems. The systems were supplied by Allstar Show Industries of Calgary and Edmonton, with integration and installation by technical staff at the respective auditoriums.
Other Meyer Sound loudspeakers deployed at the auditoriums include UPQ-1P and M1D line array loudspeakers and 700-HP subwoofers, in addition to MJF-210, MJF-212A, UM-100P, and UM-1P stage monitors. SAJA also uses CQ-1, UPJ-1P VariO, and UPM-1P loudspeakers, while NAJA uses M3D-Sub directional subwoofers.
Both locations also have a SIM 3 audio analyzer permanently in-house. SAJA is notable as the world’s first purchaser of a Meyer Sound SIM analyzer, placing its order in 1986.
