Spain’s FIBES Convention Centre Chooses Meyer Sound MICA

In Seville, Spain, a Meyer Sound MICA® line array loudspeaker system has been installed in the new auditorium at FIBES Conference and Exhibition Centre (Spanish: Palacio de Exposiciones y Congresos). With its seating flexibility and sonic excellence, the FIBES auditorium is a popular venue for international conferences, major concerts, and musical theatre productions. The audio system was specified by Carlos García-Diéguez Acuña of Seville-based GD Consulting.

“We selected a Meyer Sound MICA solution based on its overall sound quality, high efficiency in compact enclosures, and the availability of strong technical support in Spain,” explains García-Diéguez. “For conferences, it delivers high clarity and intelligibility in all seats, while for concerts, it is excellent for all music styles, including folk, classical, and rock.”

The Meyer Sound MAPP Online Pro® acoustical prediction program proved to be an essential design tool for the room with reflective metal and PET-based synthetic materials for wall surfaces. “MAPP Online Pro allows us to focus the sound on the seating area and greatly minimize any destructive reflections,” says García-Diéguez.

The FIBES auditorium system is built around twin arrays of eight-each MICA loudspeakers flown underneath three 600-HP subwoofers. Four UPM-1P loudspeakers supply front fill, six UPJunior™ VariO™ loudspeakers are mounted for underbalcony fill, one UPJunior loudspeaker covers one side of the asymmetrical top tier, and a Galileo® loudspeaker management system featuring one Galileo 616 processor handles system optimization and drive. GD Consulting and Madrid-based systems integrator Vitelsa assumed project management for the installation.

The permanent house audio system is mixed on DiGiCo SD9 and SD11 digital mixing consoles, both equipped with a MaDiRack.

The FIBES auditorium is designed by renowned architect Guillermo Vázquez Consuegra. It seats up to 3,000, although moveable walls can enclose upper sections for simultaneous use as smaller meeting spaces.

Since opening, the auditorium has hosted performances by Julio Iglesias and Raphael, the Flamenco Biennial Festival, and touring productions of Beauty and the Beast and Les Misérables, among others.
