    The Danish arm of KPMG, a worldwide accounting and consulting firm, makes a bold statement through its new 33,000-square-meter headquarters building in Copenhagen designed by architects 3XN. As part of the building architecture characterized by three interlocking polygons, KPMG’s auditorium features a virtually invisible system of Meyer Sound MM-4XP miniature self-powered loudspeakers to ensure intelligibility for company presentations. “It was a challenging room because the architects did not want any loudspeakers visible, not even color-matched ceiling grilles,” states Anders Jørgensen… View this post

Central to this is its asymmetrical vertical dispersion, gently shaping the acoustic coverage towards the lower quadrant of the vertical axis. By the nature of a typical application, an “ideal” column loudspeaker should… View this post
