Thunder Audio Provides Meyer Sound MILO for Movement Electronic Music Festival

The Movement Electronic Music Festival, taking place May 26-28, 2012 at Detroit’s Hart Plaza, will feature a huge array of Meyer Sound equipment provided by Livonia, Mich.-based Thunder Audio.

The annual festival, which drew some 100,000 attendees in 2011, has grown and evolved considerably from its inception as the Detroit Electronic Music Festival in 2000. This year, three of five stages will feature a Meyer Sound system.

“Our company was unaware of Meyer in a practical sense until we teamed up with Thunder Audio on the Movement Festival a few years ago,” recalls Sam Fotias, operations manager of the Movement Electronic Music Festival and Detroit-based Paxahau Event Productions and Management. “We had tried other loudspeaker products, but nothing really gave us the raw power and, more importantly, clarity at high SPL that we were looking for until we were exposed to MILO.”

The festival’s Main Stage will boast a system comprised of 48 MILO and 16 M’elodie line array loudspeakers; 36 700-HP subwoofers; two UPA-1P and UPA-2P loudspeakers each; and a Galileo loudspeaker management system. The monitoring system includes 12 Meyer Sound MJF-212A stage monitors.

The Beatport Stage will feature 24 MICA, 12 MILO, and eight M’elodie line array loudspeakers; 18 700-HP subwoofers; three UPJ-1P VariO loudspeakers; and a Galileo loudspeaker management system. The Made in Detroit Stage will feature 24 MILO and eight M1D line array loudspeakers, and Galileo.

“We got involved in this event six or seven years ago, and there was all manner of different configurations on each stage,” recalls Thunder Audio’s Paul Owen. “We came in and did one stage, and then they saw how good the Meyer product was—the powered line array, without hundreds of amp racks everywhere.”

Fotias adds: “Having Tony [Villarreal] and Paul and their team from Thunder so close is amazing. They have been such an instrumental part of allowing this event to grow and being able to facilitate all of the big crowds we get.”
