Liverpool’s newly launched East Village Arts Club has been equipped with a Turbosound loudspeaker solution as part of a £1.5m refurbishment.
Formerly the Masque Theatre, the East Village Arts Club stands at the heart of the UK city’s once thriving mercantile area.
Dimension Audio was enlisted to supply and install new equipment throughout the venue.
The main theatre room, which is predominantly used as a live performance space, needed a system that “could deliver clean, dynamic, high SPL output while minimising sightline intrusions which are already affected by the room’s two large central pillars,” commented Paul McMullan of Turbosound. For this area, Dimension Audio opted for TCS-1061/75 three-way line arrays featuring focused horizontal dispersion to avoid unwanted reflections from walls and pillars. These are complemented by TSW-218 double 18in folded horn subwoofers.
In the loft room Dimension Audio deployed Aspect TA-500 cabinets and a pair of TFS-900L Flashline subwoofers to deliver the bass for the DJ sets that the room is traditionally used for.
“Downstairs, a new bar and grill area has been created requiring an unobtrusive BGM system capably handled by TCX-8 full range cabinets. An additional portable self-powered Milan system has also been supplied for use by comedy, acoustic, spoken word, and other performers when required,” added McMullan.
“The compact TCX-8 passive two-way loudspeaker presents a discreet installed appearance with no visible side handles, comprising an 8in low frequency driver and a 1in high frequency compression driver, and offers wide dispersion from its Converging Elliptical Waveguide in a trapezoidal enclosure,” he finished.
