Described as ‘the centre of the techno universe’ by DJ Mag, Berlin’s Berghain dance club relies haevily on its sound system. In the upstairs Panorama Bar, an elite corps of international DJs build their mixes, using a Meyer Sound loudspeaker system to deliver their compelling and entrancing music.

BerghainInstalled by Schalldruck of Berlin, the sound system uses a pair of Meyer Sound JM-1P loudspeakers in each corner of the dancefloor, with bass from two hidden stacks of three 600-HP subwoofers. An LCR system of three UPA-2P loudspeakers and a 500-HP subwoofer is used to provide DJ monitoring. Both loudspeaker systems are managed by a Galileo system with a Galileo 616 processor.

‘We had been asked to update the Panorama Bar’s sound system as part of a partial redesign and technical upgrade of the room,’ says Werner Eicker, managing director of Schalldruck. ‘We immediately suggested a Meyer Sound system based on JM-1Ps, and their performance quickly convinced the club’s management. The JM-1Ps can produce extremely high SPL with very low distortion, and they focus all the energy on the dancefloor.’

Eicker also credits Galileo with a share of the club’s success: ‘Galileo allowed us to provide different set-ups, which can then be selected to work with the DJ’s personal equipment and the desired SPL.’

Launched six years ago as the successor to the famed Ostgut Club, Berghain is located inside a former electric power plant. ‘It is the real deal, run by incredibly dedicated people who love music and understand whatmakes a club work,’ saud club reviewer, Matt Edwards (aka Radio Slave), ‘It really is a place where you get lost in time and space.’
