Foundation Coffee House – NQ – Manchester

A ten speaker background music system has been installed in the popular Foundation Coffee House located in the heart of the Northern Quarter in Manchester.

The customer brief was to design a system that could cover all areas of the café without audio spill to the Barista counter, to include volume control over two areas of the café.

Monolake Gig – Texture Manchester

Did you know that we recently provided a four point sound system for a live performance by the legendary Robert Henke, the creator of performance software ABLETON? The gig was on the 28th October 2017 at Texture in Manchester, a superb venue for cutting edge events.

Our system consisted of four of our Nova Acoustic EX600 columns, with deep bass provided by a cluster of four Nova E18 horn loaded subwoofers. We used two Linea Research 4 channel 44M20 power amplifiers to power the system, one amp to the bass cluster with independent speaker output to each EX600 column. This allowed Robert to manipulate sounds around the whole dance floor during the performance.

His set was mesmerising, the EX600’s provided really crisp detail, with a warm but strong impulses from the sub woofer stack.

One audience member posted this on Twitter after the gig

“Outstanding quadrophonic Monolake set from last night”

For Hollowsphere the event was a real success and we look forward to more events like this with Texture in the future.

How to maintain your projector

Mucky projector

Often we receive call outs from customers regarding problems with their projectors, to avoid some of these potential problems here’s a few simple steps you can take to keep them in top condition.

1. Keep them clean!!  Avoid build up of dust and dirt across the vents, pull out the removable filters and keep them clean. If the DMD within the projector overheats and will be costly to replace.

2. Keep the optics clean, wipe down the lens with a lint free non abrasive cloth.

3. Try to avoid using them in a damp atmosphere, this will eventually corrode the electronics and cloud up the optics.

4. Projector placement – avoid locating then local to air handling units – this seriously reduces the life of your projector.

5. Keep your eye on the total lamp hours and check against the manual.

6. Keep them at the orientation stated by the manufacturer. Placing your projector vertical may cause them to overheat.

7. Get a service contract with your AV supplier who can ensure all of the above is in check.

 

The Terrace in Lymm has a new sound system

Audac ATEO2D

The Terrace in Lymm is an established cafe serving up a selection of the finest food and drink. The owner required a discrete and distributed sound system to provide even background music throughout.

We proposed and installed the petite Audac ATEO2D speakers together with a two channel Apart Concept 1 amplifier. This system is to be extended in the future for a second audio zone local to the outdoor patio area.
