Sofia’s Tequila Club, situated in the Bulgarian Radisson Blu Hotel, has been fitted with Harman’s JBL VRX Constant Curvature line array loudspeaker system as part of the new club’s audio set up. The venue, which encompasses two independent lounge areas, has become one of the new flagship destination venues in the Bulgarian capital, attracting the city’s affluent and VIP clientele. Integrator Factor TC – an established Bulgarian distributor for Harman – was selected to support the project after a JBL system was seen as the most suitable solution. From testing it was concluded that a JBL VRX Constant Curvature line array loudspeaker system should be adopted. Factor TC specified 12 JBL VRX932LA and eight VRX918S subwoofers as the main PA, powered by five Crown XTi6002 amplifiers. Four Control Contractor 24C ceiling speakers and four black Control 25 enclosures were deployed for the peripheral sound in the bar and ancillary areas, aided by a Crown 180MA mixer/amplifier. The dance system is under the control of a dbx DriveRack 260, which ensures that the performance is fully optimised. The architects from design studio Idea of Sofia, in particular, were said to have expressed their delight with the 100-degree horizontal x 15-degree vertical coverage achieved by placing the VRX enclosures above the bar areas. “Given a choice of several leading brands, it was the long-term relationship we have with the client, their goodwill towards HARMAN products and the quality of JBL sound they experienced at the live demo that proved conclusive,” Vesselin Todorov, president of Factor TC explained. “We are very happy to be working with Factor TC again,” responded Boris Stefanov, manager of Tequila Club. “They always offer us the best possible products, and for our luxury club I personally chose JBL VRX as the best sounding compact system. Although we have installed industry standard DJ equipment, there are no separate reference monitors for the DJ because with the VRX system he doesn’t need it.” www.harman.com
