Irish Village Pub in Dubai Extends Outdoor Terrace with Meyer Sound 48 V Loudspeakers

The focal point of The Irish Village pub in Dubai is its recently expanded, 3,500-capacity scenic outdoor terrace. To improve the sound quality for daytime ambience music and live entertainment in the evenings and weekends, the pub has installed a Meyer Sound system based around UPJunior-XP 48 V VariO™ loudspeakers.

Impressed by the power and clarity of the Meyer Sound systems they had previously encountered, Dave Cattanach, The Irish Village’s general manager, and Jason Smith, manager, had long wanted Meyer Sound loudspeakers in their venue. When it came time for an upgrade to optimize the newly extended terrace area, they enlisted Abu Dhabi-based Systech Middle East to specify, install, and commission the new system.

“The UPJunior-XPs were our first choice because they set a new standard for power and clarity in systems suitable for outdoor applications,” says Malek Ghorayeb, general manager of Systech Middle East. “They are also very reliable—vital for a venue that makes heavy use of its PA.”

Designed to cover the large terrace, the outdoor system includes eight UPJunior-XP loudspeakers, two UPA-1P loudspeakers, and two 500-HP subwoofers. System drive and alignment is provided by a Galileo® loudspeaker management system with a Galileo 616 processor.

“Since the installation of the Meyer speakers, the response from customers has been very positive,” says Cattanach. “The balance and clarity of the sound has noticeably improved. Plus, the musicians love it.”

Drew Jones, a regular performer at The Irish Village both as a soloist and a member of the four-piece band The Maplejacks, says: “With the Meyer speakers, the venue has an even volume wherever you sit, along with added clarity and warmth. It really feels like people can actually appreciate what I’m playing now.”
