Quite fortunately our senior engineer was at hand and with the help of a soldering iron he was able to get them up and running on time.
After a brief conversation with the management, it became very clear that the venue was hosting an array of different events which included private parties, nightclub events and a live music showcase. At considerable expense, the equipment had to be hired in separately for each event.

We installed 4 Blacka Acoustics 25T full range speakers in the bar main bar area and a further 4 in the function room with 2 RF15 15'' Bass units. The venue also required two screens to be integrated into the solution and well as a music catalogue driven from a hard drive. Volume and music source controls are positioned behind each of the two bar areas, enabling staff to seamlessly switch from screens, background music or dj / live music. We also included an XLR wall point to enable
Since the installation the Lounge now hosts regular live music and nightclub events and has generally become a lot more attractive a venue for people wishing to hire it for a function
