Continuing the fascination with the Manchester warehouse club scene, the owners of the new secret club ( in North Manchester) & Sixthsound gave us a blank canvas to play with.

To bring life in the old tyre warehouse we fitted four small Ledj3hex12 pars to the columns, four Ledj 9Q8 RGBWpars over the dj booth with two Equinox Lightning Cracker 2 strobes and two Acme 25 watt dynamic scans. To enrich the atmosphere we supplied then with a huge QTX FH1500 haze machine. The DJ’s have full control of the led lights via a Transcencion LED Master 64 desk and the Equinox strobe controller at the dj table.

Given the relatively low cost of the installation, the results look excellent, plus as all the lighting gear is LED based, it has low power consumption and no lamps to replace.

The owners, DJ’s and punters are very pleased with the finished product.

The sound system comprises of a beefy Sixthsound 6 x TRS218 subs with 4 x TRS212 tops powered by MC2 E- series amplification, there is some “REAL” bass weight in there !!!

I do like the way that the owners of this club just get on with the job in hand, they are not big on social media yet these well packed events are kicking off.

Hmm… now then, I think a mirrorball in the centre will go down nicely.

Volta, Didsbury – background music system

Jo vOLTA SOUND SYSTEM

As part of their expansion plans, VOLTA called on us to install a background music system in their newly refurbished upstairs room.

The owners who also own ELEKTRIK bar in Chorlton like to do this different, this is the same when it comes to their audio installations.

Keeping the retro feel in the front room, we installed the owner provided Mordaunt Short “Paegent” hifi speakers and to blend in the smaller room we opted for a pair of Apart Mask 4’s.

The whole system is powered by an Apart Concept 1 two zone amplifier with remote, volume levels are limited to protect the installation and to avoid any potential noise complaints.

Future plans are to distribute the audio from downstairs across two floors.

Background music system and Projector installation – Ezra and Gill – Manchester

The owners of Ezra and Gil contacted us to provide a background music system for their new café in the Northern Quarter, Manchester. Prior to providing a quotation we set up a demo of various speaker options at the café.

Following a meeting and a demo due to it’s small footprint, brilliant sound quality and unobtrusive design we agreed to go for the APart Audio Mask4T loudspeakers.
