EGYPT: The venue has invested in an extensive Electro-Voice mobile sound reinforcement system, reports David Davies. Part of the Egyptian Ministry of Culture, the Cairo Opera House has purchased a system that includes EV loudspeakers, microphones and amplifiers, enabling it to satisfy the requirements of a diverse schedule of events.

The system was designed by Shahir Nakhla from Alpha Audio, Egypt, in conjunction with Electro-Voice's regional technical support staff. The equipment was supplied by both Alpha Audio and Quality Engineering Group.

At its core, the system comprises an XLC rig of 18 XLC127DVX loudspeakers and eight XLC215 subwoofers. These are complemented by eight PX1122M, four QRx153/75 enclosures and two QRx218S subwoofers. Power comes from 19 TG5 amplifiers.

The Cairo Opera House has also purchased a variety of EV N/D series microphones from Alpha Audio.

Anthony Sawyer, technical support manager for Electro-Voice and Dynacord - pro-audio Africa/Middle East, tells PSN-e: "The Opera House needed to bring their old Electro-Voice MT4 sound system up to date, hence it was a logical move to update with EV because of the reliability and performance of the old system."
