Extensive Meyer Sound systems for China’s Dongguan Yulan Theatre15 February 2008
In the 1,600-seat main hall, the principal left-centre-right clusters incorporate six MSL-4 horn-loaded long-throw and two CQ-1 full-range wide coverage loudspeakers. Down- and side-fill coverage is provided by DF-4 dedicated downfill loudspeakers, UPA-1P compact wide coverage loudspeakers and UPJ-1P compact VariO loudspeakers. Subs include one centre-flown PSW-2 high-power flyable unit and four 650-P high-power subs on the floor. Sound effects and stage monitoring are taken care of by additional compact UltraSeries loudspeakers, while 21 MM-4 miniature wide-range loudspeakers have been included for balcony delays.
In the 400-seat theatre, the main flown clusters are based around UPA-1P and UPJ-1P loudspeakers, with support from UMS-1P subs and MM-4s. The auxiliary and monitor systems comprise further compact UltraSeries cabinets.
“Since the systems were installed, we have not experienced a single problem in a performance,” commented Chou Xucun, the venue’s sound engineer. “The equipment has been very stable and the sound quality is impeccable.”
Leifull’s installation also included Lawo mc266 mixing consoles, Midas Verona and Legend 3000 analogue mixing desks, digital fiber optic snake systems, and 18 channels of Shure UHF wireless systems.
