Dubai World Trade Centre Debuts Meyer Sound LEO at Music Week

The Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) recently introduced its new Meyer Sound LEO™ linear large-scale sound reinforcement system during Dubai Music Week. Featuring a lineup that included will.i.am, Selena Gomez, and Timbaland, the event programs were held at the DWTC Arena.

DWTC’s system marks the first LEO purchase in the Middle East. “LEO stood true to its specifications in uniformity, extended frequency response, and sheer power,” says Ashley A. Rodrigues, DWTC’s manager of technical production. “There was very little that needed to be tweaked. The response was linear and transparent throughout the arena, and we measured levels of 116 dBA continuous at 65 meters from the stage.”

The system at Dubai Music Week comprised left and right main arrays of nine LEO-M line array loudspeakers over three MICA® line array loudspeakers as down fills, supported by dual flown cardioid arrays of nine-each 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements. Five MILO® line array loudspeakers on each side supplied out fill, and the entire system was driven by a Galileo® Callisto™ loudspeaker management system with two Galileo Callisto 616 array processors and two Galileo 616 processors. On-stage foldback was supplied by 12 MJF-212A stage monitors, four MINA™ line array loudspeakers, and one 700-HP subwoofer.

“I have heard practically all the other high-quality brands on the market, and LEO’s quality stands above the rest,” says Rodrigues. “It engulfs you in a way that is difficult to express, but a pleasure to experience. The system certainly did justice to the excited crowd of 8,000—in fact, all the performers’ FOH engineers reported that they were awed by LEO’s performance.”

DWTC’s LEO system will be used for all large-scale concert events inside the complex, and will also be available as a rental system for major events throughout the Emirates.

Dubai Music Week brought famed luminaries of popular music together for a program that included the Quincy Jones Seminars, the MIDEM Music Conference, the Pepsi Bandslam, and major concerts by Bollywood and Arabic star performers, in addition to the headliner shows.

The DWTC is a multi-faceted business complex that encompasses office towers along with world-class event facilities for conferences, conventions, exhibitions, and entertainment.
