NEXO GEO M6 array gets first European install in Slovenian festival hall29 January 2015
Slovenia’s Bled Festival Hall has become the location for Europe’s first installation of the new NEXO GEO M6 line array.
The Festival Hall, originally built to host World Chess Championships, has also hosted meetings, summits, and sporting and musical events. In its principal hall, capacity 500, MK Light Sound has just installed a new sound system, utilising the NEXO GEO M6.
Dean Karov of MK Light Sound, explained: “We were asked to supply a system that would offer high speech intelligibility, even coverage and enough power for 95% of their programme.”
“GEO M was just such a system; if a client needs more than this, it can be rented in. Since we installed the system, it has been used for a business school graduation, two concerts, and a business seminar all of the clients were happy with the results delivered by the GEO M6.”
The system configuration, designed using NEXO’s proprietary modelling software NS-1 to predict the performance, uses six GEO M620 cabinets per side and two M620s in a centre fill cluster, due to the width of the venue and the stage. LS18 Series sub-bass units are used for the low end, and the whole system is powered by two NXAMP 4x1s.
Karov added: “We are certain that the M6 was the right choice for this venue; it offers the perfect coverage pattern for this venue and excellent speech intelligibility. It’s light in weight, which meant it could be installed easily and can be adjusted in situ. It is surprising how much power comes out of the M6. It definitely sounds larger than it looks but that is a NEXO trademark!”
