TW AUDiO loudspeakers were reportedly selected following demonstrations by the distributors of several international loudspeaker brands, all taking place in the original Bobby Mazzo bar.
According to Bobby Mazzo owner Mr Ma, a key reason for the decision to opt for TW AUDiO was help the new venue ‘stand out from all of my competitors’. Mr Ma also praised the brand as a ‘rising star’ with a ‘sound that moves me’.
Among the most important criteria for the installation was that the loudspeakers should be discreet, specifically not obstructing views of the giant LED screen which has been placed behind the DJ platform. Nevertheless, high SPL was still required to create the correct ambience within the bar. Solving the problem is a substantial installation comprising a broad range of TW AUDiO enclosures. Two T24 horn-loaded tops have been suspended to the left and right of the LED screen. Adding low-end, meanwhile, are four B30 subwoofers which have been concealed beneath the platform itself. Additionally, two BSX subs are positioned to the left and right of the DJ with eight M12 cabinets providing full range performance across the dance-floor and seating area.
Elsewhere the venue’s seated booths and lobby are served by 18 M15 full range enclosures supported by 14 B30 subwoofers, all of which have been carefully located so as not to compromise the bar’s aesthetics. The system is powered by 12 Powersoft K3 DSP+AESOP amplifiers which are controlled and monitored by Armonia Pro Audio Suite remote software.
Finally, the venue includes 10 KTV rooms, each of which are equipped with two M8 cabinets, two M6 enclosures and two B15 subwoofers for low end.
‘This kind of system is normally used in theatres and arenas that require large-scale sound systems,’ Mr Fan explained. ‘But I think it is also necessary for a large bar like Bobby Mazzo. There are several areas and each has different requirements. Plus the sound system needs to work for more than eight hours per day, so we have to keep a close eye on it.’
