The Brolga Theatre has recently implemented a complete turn-key audio system
Australia - The Brolga Theatre in Queensland is the cultural entertainment heart of the Fraser Coast, with a first-class theatre and conference venue that attracts the finest international and national performers. The Brolga Theatre has recently implemented a complete turn-key audio system based on Meyer Sound's award-winning Ultra products.

Coordinated by Robert Haigh, operations technician at Brolga Theatre, with design assistance by Meyer Sound Australia, the system includes the UPQ-1P wide coverage and UPQ-2P narrow coverage point source loudspeakers complimented by UPA-1P's as in-fill and USW-1P subwoofers from the system originally install some 14 years ago.

"Originally equipped with a Meyer UPA-1/UPA-2 system, the Brolga Theatre has always been a Meyer Sound client," says Robert Haigh, operations technician. "Over a number of years it became apparent that touring musicians demanded a system with greater capacity and SPL for our 900-seat auditorium. Once we decided on a replacement point-source system, Meyer was an easy choice. Reflecting the original design specification, the equipment is of the highest standard, and support from Chris D'Bais and the team was superb.

"By providing a test system to allow us to do a side-by-side comparison they made it easy to prove the result reflected the proposal before we committed a single cent. We now have the capacity to fill the auditorium with sound that satisfies all but the biggest touring shows, and improves overall performance for everybody else at a much more affordable cost than a line array solution, we couldn't be happier."
