Beagle lands Funktion-One loudspeaker system20 May 2013
Restaurant and coffee shop Beagle – located in London, UK – has been equipped with new audio solution from London-based audio systems manufacturer Funktion-One.
Professional integrator Sound Services was responsible for installing the system at the venue, which offered acoustical challenges being such a reverberant space.
The new system utilises Funktion-One F101 speakers. The dual-zone configuration is controlled by a Formula Sound audio management system with remote volume and source selection in each zone for local control. This is all powered by Full Fat Audio amplification.
Kieran Clancy, director, Beagle, explained: "Being club promoters as well as restaurateurs, sound quality is incredibly important to us, and we think that is something that is too often overlooked by restaurants and bars. For us it’s just as important as the rest of the fit out.
“Funktion-One was the only option in our minds – we’ve used F101s at several events and always been surprised by their output. We’re getting great feedback all the time for the incredible sound quality at Beagle."
Beagle represents one of many projects completed by Sound Services in what seems to be a productive period for the company. It has installed new Funktion-One solutions at a stack of vibrant London venues, including Basing House, Queen of Hoxton, Birthdays in Dalston, Old Blue Last, Dukes and Dalston Supertsore’s Dance Tunnel.
Reflecting on that period, Sound Services’ technical director, Rich Cufley said: “With Funktion-One, we’ve got an incredible range of products that allow us to take on a huge variety of different projects. And no matter which speaker we specify, we know it’s going to have unrivalled sonic performance and a standout level of quality.”
