Prodjmedia recently installed a full complement of Martin Audio CDD loudspeakers and CSX subwoofers in Lima’s Lyra nightclub.
Founded by Fernando Vidal and Arturo Dyer, Lyra features local and international DJ’s in the main room and rooftop bar/dancefloor, and as Prodjmedia’s CEO Renzo Silva explains, “they wanted to create an environment with no compromises in terms of sound quality, so the first choice was obviously Martin Audio.”
According to Renzo, the sound system includes two Martin Audio CDD15’s with two CSX218 subs on the dancefloor, four CDD6’s on the first floor, four CDD6’s on the second floor and four CDD6’s and one CSX112 sub in the rooftop café. The loudspeakers are powered by Martin Audio MA 2.8Q, MA3.0 and MA 5.2K amps. A DX0.5 loudspeaker management system is used to control the sound throughout the venue.
“There were some challenges in terms of the acoustics because most of the surfaces in the club are brick and cement with an industrial finish which can be a big problem in terms of sound, but we managed to calibrate the system to eliminate those problems.
“The club has two floors with access to the main room,” Renzo continues, “and we were able to correct the delays to provide optimum sound quality for the boxes and bar. For the rooftop system, we were able to control the sound in the space so neighbors couldn’t complain about excessive noise. The DX0.5 was crucial to managing all of the speakers.”
Asked about his clients’ reaction to Martin Audio, he responds “they love the CDD system. They were surprised and pleased by the clarity of the speakers, power of the subs and overall audio quality. And the patrons are really excited about how good it sounds as well. Right now, Lyra is a club like no other in Perú and the owners definitely are planning to use Martin Audio on their next projects.”
