The 900-seat Musical Theatre Roma in Warsaw, Poland, has installed Meyer Sound MINA line array loudspeakers to support its repertoire of musical productions.
Originally built in 1935 as a “Catholic House” in the classic style reminiscent of Italian opera halls, the Musical Theatre Roma auditorium was one of the few buildings in Warsaw to survive World War II. Warsaw-based Polsound was enlisted for design and supply of the new system, which went into the venue’s early-20th century auditorium.
Polsound deployed 28 MINA loudspeakers for FOH system, which include twin left and right hangs of 11 each and a center cluster of six. Four 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements were fitted as dual end-fired arrays. In addition, the team selected eight UPM-1P loudspeakers for front fill, while two UPA-1P loudspeakers were deployed as corner fill. The system is driven by a Galileo loudspeaker management system with two Galileo 616 processors.
Polsound also opted for 24 channels of Shure ULX-D digital wireless microphones and a Shure PSM 900 in-ear monitoring system.
“The new MINA system fits the venue perfectly,” commented Pawel Danikiewicz, commercial director for Polsound. “It’s surprisingly powerful, yet smaller than what was installed before. MINA sounds like a big hi-fi system.”
