UK: The West End production of Phantom of the Opera is utilising Meyer Sound's new UPQ-1P wide coverage loudspeaker. The installation of the UPQ-1P at Her Majesty's Theatre in London coincided with the 21st anniversary of the show, which was composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Charles Hart. The Meyer Sound loudspeaker was provided by Blitz Audio via Autograph Sales.

In addition to the UPQ-1P, the revamped audio system also features a pair of CQ-2 loudspeakers, four UPJ-1P Vario loudspeakers and 32 MM-4 miniature loudspeakers. 700-HP, 600-HP and UMS-1P subwoofers provide low-end reinforcement. The latest upgrade to the system was carried out with the use of Meyer Sound's Matrix3 audio show control.

Roger Harpum, UK sales manager for Meyer Sound Labs, tells PSN-e: "When faced with the task of refitting Her Majesty's Theatre for a show as iconic as Phantom of the Opera, sound designer Mick Potter had a very specific list of requirements when it came to finding the right equipment: size to power ratio, enclosure size, intelligibility, ultra-wide coverage. With these needs in mind, we were able to provide him with the product necessary to offer theatre-goers an experience that exceeds their already-high expectations - the UPQ-1P."
