At the begining of 2008 we were contacted by Berkeley California based Meyer Sound and asked to assist them with a series of loudspeaker demonstrations at The Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall at the Orange County Performing Arts Center (OCPAC)now known as the Segerstrom Center for the Arts
The purpose of these demonstrations was to evolve the perfect sound system to enhance the Pop's performances at OCPAC and have the additional ability to remove the Main Line array for outside jobs at the Verizon Center and other locations with the Pacific Symphony.
During the course of this Three Phase project, OCPAC installed new rig points for ideal positioning of the array and Meyer Sound designed, engineered and manufactured a new device to attach the existing M3D cardiod subwoofers to the nine Mica's below. All of this made for a clean and esthetically pleasing rig that also sounded great.
While the venue did audition other brands of sound equipment, the decision to move forward with Meyer Sound came down to that most basic of audio requirements.The Meyer Sound system simply sounded better.
Everybody involved, from Meyer Sound, to the OCPAC and Pacific Symphony teams, was highly professional and a joy to work with. It was a great collaborative effort.
This is a world-class performance venue. It's stunning to look at and now it sounds as good as it looks.
