The Moulin Rouge cabaret in the Montmartre district of Paris includes a complement of 30 self-powered Meyer Sound loudspeakers. The system in the 1,000-square-meter main showroom is arranged in five discrete delay zones to provide seamless coverage for up to 850 patrons seated at the room’s tables. The installation includes eight UPA-1P compact wide coverage and 18 UPM-1P ultra-compact wide coverage loudspeakers, plus four USW-1P compact subwoofers. Two additional UPA-1P cabinets provide monitoring for the dancers onstage.
The Meyer Sound system was designed and installed more than five years ago by Best Audio/Dispatch of Paris under the direction of Gerard Trevignon. Serge Vely, the Moulin Rouge’s head of sound and a sound engineer at the club since 1973, operates and maintains the system.
Original music for the Moulin Rouge is recorded specifically for each show, with the final mix done in the cabaret showroom in front of an audience.
