Dub Stage chooses Meyer Sound for L.A.'s first Barco Auro 11.1 system

March 29, 2013

The Dub Stage, a leading independent audio post-production facility in Burbank, Calif., has installed a 37-loudspeaker Meyer Sound cinema system for the Barco Auro 11.1 immersive surround format. The Dub Stage is the first Barco Auro 11.1 mix room in Southern California, and is one of the first Auro 11.1 facilities in the world.

Marti D. Humphrey, The Dub Stage's owner and principal re-recording mixer, states, "I felt that Meyer Sound in conjunction with Auro 11.1 was the best possible system out there. Everybody who comes into the room has been blown away by the sound quality. The clarity is second to none, and the lack of fatigue after a long day is refreshing. Finally, the best thing is that everything you mix on in here translates extremely well. The system really shows off the potential of Auro." Wilfried Van Baelen, CEO of Belgian-based Auro Technologies played an active role in facilitating the installation.

In The Dub Stage's new system, low and high LCR channels for Barco Auro 11.1 are reproduced by six Acheron® 80 screen-channel loudspeakers, aided by four X-800C subwoofers. A total of 20 HMS-10 loudspeakers carry the lower and upper surround channels, plus four more HMS-10 loudspeakers for the overhead channel. In addition, three 500-HP subwoofers are programmed for bass management of surround channels, maintaining consistent bandwidth for sounds panned from behind the screen into the room. A Galileo® loudspeaker management system with two Galileo 408 processors provides drive and equalization.

The Dub Stage's Auro 11.1 mix room also features a 64-fader Avid Icon console and a Pro Tools HDX system. Visioneering Design Company of Los Angeles provided consultation and assistance with the Meyer Sound system installation.
