Spanish rental company Fluge provided an all-Meyer sound system for this year's Spanish Music Awards. Now in its sixth year, Spain's Los Premios de Música Awards, sponsored and supported by the Academia de las Artes y las Ciencias de la Música (Arts and Science of Music Academy), has grown to become one of the country's biggest annual music industry events.

The awards were held at the Palacio de Congresos de Madrid, a modern wooden building in Madrid with a capacity of almost 2,000. The system consisted of four M3D Line Array loudspeakers, five M2D Compact Curvilinear Array loudspeakers and two M3D-Sub Directional subwoofers on each side of the stage, with four UPM-1P Ultra-Compact Wide Coverage loudspeakers used as frontfill to cover seats closer to the stage. The system was monitored using Meyer Sound's RMS Remote Monitoring System.

The awards show featuered eight live bands as well as the various hosts and awards presenters. The use of digital mixing consoles for FOH and monitors made it possible to stage all live performances with no interruptions.

Technical support staff from Meyer Sound Spain, including Alvaro Elena Falco and Jose Antonio Castro, assisted the two Fluge systems engineers, Ricardo Carazo and Pablo Moreno, to configure and set up the system. Also on hand was Pablo Espinosa, customer service manager at Meyer Sound's Berkeley headquarters, who analyzed the system using Meyer's SIM System II FFT Analyzer and equalized it using CP-10 Parametric EQs.

Jose María Rosillo and James Woods mixed the show; afterward, Rosillo said that he was impressed with the performance of the system and that he particularly liked its definition, which allowed him to carry out a consistent mix.

Another fan of the Meyer Sound M Series system was Alberto Bravo, technical director of the show's production company, Sold Out, who said that he was quite satisfied with the performance. "The directional control of the M3Ds and M3D-Sub played an important role reducing the sound leakage onto the stage," he said. "This helped us to achieve a very clean audio quality--both in the house and for the broadcast--and also allowed a better gain before feedback for the podium mics."

The show was broadcast live across the country by Spanish TV broadcaster TVE. Remote recording company Payton took care of the audio for TV, which was mixed by Jose Angel Doray and Juan Vinader.
