Yamaha Delivers Turbulence-Free Sound At Aeroscopia
Toulouse is known globally for Airbus, but the area around the city has witnessed over a century of aviation - from France’s first powered flight by Clément Ader, via the Caravelle (the first French jet airliner) and Concorde, to the mighty Airbus A380. Appropriately, Aeroscopia is connected to Toulouse-Blagnac airport - where many French aircraft made their maiden flights - and is within easy reach of the city.
At the heart of the museum, the 506m² l’espace évènementiel (event space) can host up to 400 guests in a cocktail configuration, or 290 guests for a seated dinner. Here high quality background music is delivered by eight Yamaha VXS8 and two VXS10 loudspeakers, powered by XMV8140 and XMV4280 amplifiers.
The amphithéâtre (lecture theatre) features four VXS8 loudspeakers and an XMV4140 amplifier, while the meeting room includes four more VXS8 and two VXS5s, powered by an XMV8280 amplifier, both systems for presentations and video soundtracks.
The sound for each space is managed by its own MTX3 matrix processor and DCP series surface-mounted controllers. The system is also controlled by iPads running Yamaha’s ProVisionaire Touch app.
The system was installed by Patrick Balland of systems integrator Dushow Toulouse, who says, “We chose the Yamaha solution because the sound quality is excellent and the system was very straightforward to design and install, using simple RJ45 connectors. The MTX matrix processor, DCP controllers and ProVisionaire Touch allow for easy programming and operation of multiple zones, despite the different uses of the spaces.”
MTX Series matrix processors are equipped with flexible processing functions that are essential to a wide variety of applications.
XMV Series multi-channel power amplifiers combine Class-D efficiency with features designed specifically to benefit commercial installation sound systems.
The VXS Series lineup features two full-range models and two subwoofers, allowing you to choose the optimal model for a particular application and, if necessary, combine it with a subwoofer for venues that require a stronger bottom end.
VXS Series "S model"
VXS series "S models" are subwoofers that ideally complement the expressive natural sound of VXS and VXC series speakers.
