Warfield revamped with Meyer Sound MILO system

30 October 2008 14.00 BST

(US) - The Warfield has been a San Francisco institution since Al Jolson graced its vaudeville stage in the 1920s.

Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, it was home to concert promoter Bill Graham’s shows, including week-long residencies by the Grateful Dead, and has continued to be a Bay Area favorite. This year, Goldenvoice/AEG Live took over management of the Warfield, and embarked on a renovation that included the installation of a powerful Meyer Sound system by Pro Media/UltraSound (PMUS).
Prior to the new installation, many performances at the Warfield over the years have been played through a Meyer Sound MILO line array loudspeaker system provided by PMUS. With the positive feedback about the sound quality from the engineers, the system choice for the upgrade was obvious.

“When AEG asked us to recommend a system for permanent installation, we didn’t hesitate to recommend Meyer Sound,” explains PMUS Director of Rentals and Touring, Derek Featherstone. “It is an incredibly strong system and is what the Warfield deserves.”
The new system comprises left and right arrays of ten MILO and one MILO 120 line array loudspeakers each. Low frequency is amply covered by four 700-HP subwoofers per side under the stage with an additional three 700-HP flow center to cover upper balcony. The under balcony is covered by six M1D line array loudspeakers. Two CQ-1 loudspeakers per side provide frontfill, and a Galileo loudspeaker management system provides system drive and processing.
 “The Warfield has always been one of the premier local music venues and now it’s one of the best sounding as well,” added Goldenvoice VP David Lefkowitz. “Every spot in the building has perfect sound. The system is incredibly versatile too, maximizing the execution of everything from comedy to metal to jazz.”
