Solaire chooses Meyer Sound Constellation system

AUTHOR: Inavate

The Theatre at Solaire Resort and Casino has become the first venue in the Philippines to install and be equipped with a Meyer Sound Constellation acoustic system. The complete theatre technology package was designed and specified by Las Vegas and Hong Kong-based Coherent Design, with principals David Starck and Kevin Potts working in consultation with the Singapore office of Aedas, theatre design architects. The system was installed by Manila-based All Visual & Lights Systems.

To make the room amenable to Constellation’s capabilities, Starck worked with the architect to achieve a reverberation time of less than one second in the 1,761 seat venue. Adjustable acoustics are then provided by a Constellation system comprising the D-Mitri digital audio platform with the patented VRAS acoustical algorithms, while ambient acoustics are captured by 63 miniature condenser microphones.

Early reflections and reverberation are delivered by 93 MM-4XP self-powered loudspeakers, 55 Stella-4C and 41 Stella-8C installation loudspeakers, 24 UPJunior-XP VariO loudspeakers, and 16 UMS-SMXP subwoofers.

For amplified performances, the venue features dual hangs of 12-each MICA line array loudspeakers and a flown directional array of six 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements. A UPQ-2P loudspeaker supplies centre fill, six UPM-1XP loudspeakers provide front fill and a Galileo Callisto loudspeaker management system with three Galileo Callisto 616 array processors handles drive and optimization.
