Mexico City's AM club

Over the past six years, music tastemakers and club-goers in Mexico City’s Condesa neighbourhood have enjoyed a cluster of five chic nightspots – AM, PM, Rexo, Artic Bar, and Bar La Capital. All are owned by entrepreneur Carlos Alvarez and have sound systems designed by freelance audio engineer Ramon Salazar.

The runaway success of the first install at the AM club – based around four Meyer Sound UPJ-1P VariO loudspeakers, four UPM-1P loudspeakers, and three 700-HP subwoofers – convinced Salazar and Alvarez to pursue more Meyer Sound installs.

ArticBarWith the initial install completed in 2005, the AM club has recently added MM-4XP miniature self-powered loudspeakers and a UMS-1P subwoofer as part of a remodelling project.

‘Working with Meyer Sound has been a great experience,’ Salazar says. ‘In six years, we haven’t had any problems – not even a blown driver. At AM, the DJs come in from around the world and sometimes push the system way past 130dB, until the mixer can’t go any higher. But the system keeps working perfectly and has never left us with bad sound in our ears.’

The PM club got its Meyer Sound system in 2006, with two UPA-1P loudspeakers, two UPJ-1P loudspeakers, and two 700-HP subwoofers. As the AM and PM clubs are adjacent, the systems share a Galileo loudspeaker management system with a Galileo 616 processor. The same year, the nearby Rexo upgraded to Meyer Sound UPM-1P loudspeakers and UMS-1P subwoofer.

The next room in line for an upgrade was the -15°C ice room at ArticBar, where UPM-1P loudspeakers warm the atmosphere while fur-clad guests chill out. In 2010, the trendy Bar La Capital opened an upstairs live-music venue equipped with eight M’elodie line array loudspeakers, four 700-HP subwoofers, and a Galileo loudspeaker management system with one Galileo 408 processor.

‘For us, having a Meyer Sound system in our venues has become essential,’ Salazar says. ‘The music and sound environments are key, so it’s important for the audio reproduction to be clear and have all the power needed. At our clubs, guests can always appreciate the music the way that they should.’
