In an ambitious and successful project to provide the optimal audio system, 4X Audio has looked to BSS Audio to provide ultimate control and ease of use for its recently developed sound system at the new TRE Nightclub, in Sacramento California. TRE is a brand new upscale nightclub that also includes a full restaurant and lounge.
For the project, 4X Audio utilized both BSS Audio Soundweb London BLU-80 processors and sw9012 remote source/preset selectors. “We utilize the BLU-80s constantly because of their input and output flexibility, as well as their reliable functionality, programming and rock solid networked audio,” stated 4X Audio sound integrator Doug Pumphrey. “The client wanted to create something larger and of higher quality than anything that had ever been installed in a Northern California nightclub.” The Soundweb London BLU-80 offers configurable I/O, configurable signal processing and CobraNet audio and has open architecture which is fully configurable through HiQnetâ„¢ London Architect.
Additionally, JBL speakers were used throughout the restaurant, bar and patio area. This includes 35 JBL Control 226CT ceiling speakers, 16 JBL Control 19CS ceiling subwoofers and eight JBL Control 28A/V surface mounted speakers. Installed in the main dance room and DJ area were eight JBL VP7212/64DPAN powered high output loudspeakers, eight VPSB7118DPAN powered high output 18'' subwoofers, and two JBL PRX512M self-powered monitor speakers. “The main challenge for this project was creating smooth coverage of the audio system throughout the restaurant and lounge areas, while simultaneously providing smooth and high energy coverage for the dance floor, which is located in the center of the venue,” said Carl Sagen, lead installation technician at 4X Audio.
Additional Harman products used in the installation included multiple Crown XTi 1000 and XTi 2000 amplifiers that powered the speakers in the restaurant, bar and patio areas of the building.
