Meyer Sound Preps for Mexico’s Sound:Check Xpo

FOH Staff • International News • March 3, 2009

MEXICO CITY —Sound:Check Xpo returns to the World Trade Center in  Mexico City on March 8 to 10, and Meyer Sound will be there with an array of audio solutions used on tours, on Cirque du Soleil shows and in major venues such as the 9,590-seat Auditorio Nacional. Meyer Sound instructor Oscar Barrientos will also demonstrate how to use phase and frequency to achieve uniform sound coverage at an AES seminar entitled “Phase Equalizers (selective frequency delay)” on March 10.

Two Meyer Sound products will make their first appearance at the show this year, the 500-HP subwoofer and the UPQ-2P loudspeaker. With cabinet width identical to the M’elodie line array loudspeaker, the 500-HP subwoofer can be flown with M’elodie cabinets. The UPQ-2P narrow coverage loudspeaker has a peak output of 136 dB SPL with flexible rigging options.
Other product highlights at the booth will include the MJF-212A stage monitor used by Metallica. With a face measuring four inches square, the self-powered MM-4XP miniature loudspeaker will be shown in a variety of custom colors. Additionally, a demo station will let attendees test out the Galileo loudspeaker management system equipped with Compass control software.
Meyer Sound Mexico has distributed Meyer Sound’s audio products in Latin America since 1997 and was recently appointed the distributor of DiGiCo consoles for Mexico.

“Meyer Sound Mexico has realized that many of our customers are also looking to complete their systems with a high-quality console, and in response to this, we have added the distribution of DiGiCo consoles in Mexico,” said Antonio Zacarias, head of Meyer Sound Mexico.

“At the upcoming Sound:Check, we're showing DiGiCo products for the first time, along with a range of Meyer Sound audio solutions that impress attendees and draw a large crowd to our booth every year,” he added. “This is all part of our goal to provide complete sound solutions to our customers.”
The presence of Meyer Sound equipment in the Latin American region has steadily grown since Meyer Sound Mexico was established 12 years ago.

Meyer Sound systems can be heard at Guatemala’s Fraternidad Cristiana de Guatemala, the largest Christian church in Latin America, as well as at various venues within the Xcaret theme park. With its recent purchase of 60 MILO line array loudspeakers, Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City also now has the largest MILO loudspeaker system owned by any auditorium or theatre in the world.
