One of the jewels in the French network of Club Med is La Palmyre, situated on the Atlantic coast not far from La Rochelle. This all-inclusive resort has recently been extensively renovated, and among the upgraded facilities are two new NEXO audio installations, supplied by the integration company Audiomaster.
Working closely with Christophe Girres of the NEXO Engineering Support team for the designs, the Audiomaster team recommended NEXO’s compact ID Series loudspeakers for the very large bar area. Supplied in white to complement the décor, 12x low-profile ID24s have been wall-mounted around the open-plan space, complemented by 8x ID S110 subs, and amplified by 2x DTDAMP4x1.3s.
In La Palmyre’s high-ceilinged auditorium space, used for club nights and live entertainment, Fabien Centoni, technical director for Club Med Europe, has chosen NEXO’s new GEO M10 mid-size line array. Three-cabinet arrays hang left and right, supplemented by 2x LS18subs, powered by a single NXAMP4x2Mk2 amp.
Fabien Centoni, and the principals from Audiomaster, Christophe Ibanez and Loic Bourgain, were especially impressed with the SPL from the very small ID24 cabinets, working very well despite the reflective surfaces in the bar area.
