Catwalk Café-Bar Athens fashions Turbosound loudspeakers20 December 2012
Situated near the seafront in Greece’s capital, the bar invited local suppliers Metro Audio Systems to install ten Turbosound Impact65T two-way loudspeakers and two TSB-110 sub-bass speakers.
“Catwalk Café-Bar features a warm, inviting, but timelessly classy atmosphere,” commented Pavlos Symperas from Metro Audio Systems. “The bar is open day and night so the flexibility of the Turbosound speakers are an important part of this changing feel. They help to set the tone with their clear, high quality sound reproduction.”
The biggest challenge for Metro Audio Systems was to deliver powerful quality sound, yet ensure that the system had an elegant and distinctive design. “We believed that the Impact series was the best fit for the project,” continued Symperas. “The first thing we did was to invite the client from the Catwalk Café Bar to our demo room where we introduced them to the Turbosound system. They were astonished by both the sound quality and the aesthetic design of the speakers themselves, and on that basis the installation was commissioned almost immediately. The results are fantastic! It sounds exactly how we’d imagined it would.”
Martin Reid of Turbosound stated: “The Impact65T features a multi-tapped internal line transformer which is intended for use in 100V line distributed systems. It also comes with a variety of mounting options, allowing it to be placed unobtrusively in a variety of positions throughout the venue. The TSB-110 bandpass subwoofer meanwhile is designed with flexibility in mind. Its dual input and output channels allow it to be configured to work with stereo systems. Also, its design makes it ideal for small or awkward spaces – a real advantage in venues that need to optimise space.”
