The SOHO Lounge & Music Bar in Holbæk, Denmark has installed a versatile Meyer Sound system for musical reinforcement. Anchored by the self-powered UP-4XP 48V loudspeakers, the system was supplied and installed by Copenhagen-based PRIME A/S.
“People come to enjoy a beer or a glass of wine in the afternoon, meaning that the audio system only needs to provide low-key reinforcement during daytime hours,” says Lars Christensen, venue owner. “At at night, appearances by live bands and DJs call for something altogether more powerful. The system had to be truly multi-purpose, and I am delighted that the Meyer Sound equipment fits the bill perfectly.”
Peter Petersen, productions director for PRIME A/S, provided the venue’s main lounge space with 12 UP-4XP loudspeakers, four UPA-1P loudspeakers, two 600-HP subwoofers, and three MM-10XP 48V subwoofers. Powered by three external MPS-488HP power supplies (48V DC), the compact UP-4XP loudspeakers feature exceptional audio performance with the advantages of a self-powered system.
Elsewhere in the venue, five MM-4XP self-powered loudspeakers are placed in the bathrooms and outdoor area, while one UPM-1P loudspeaker handles monitor duties in the DJ booth. A Galileo® loudspeaker management system with a Galileo 616 processor provides control and optimization for the entire loudspeaker system.
The lounge stage uses a Midas mixer and Shure microphones, while DJ equipment includes a Pioneer DJM-900nexus digital mixer and two Pioneer CDJ-2000 digital turntables.
“We get a lot of touring bands playing here,” says Christensen. “Several of them have already pointed out that our system is one of the best they have encountered in a venue of this kind in Denmark.”
