Amsterdam nightclub Doka has recently upgraded its sound system with speakers and subwoofers from Danley.
The venue hired pro audio distribution and integration company Firm4 to install the system, comprised of four Danley SH50 full-range loudspeakers and two Danley TH118 subwoofers.
“The old system wasn’t meeting the high standards that Kerwin Groot, Doka’s chief sound engineer and Julian Chaptal, the club’s producer and programmer expected,” said Robert Pigeaud, representative of Firm4. “Kerwin reached out to us because he had heard Danley systems at Oosterbar and Marktkantine and at regional festivals. He was impressed by the Danley fidelity and overall performance. As part of our due diligence, we gave them several other options and performed a demo at Doka. The demo consisted of a pair of Danley SM60F full-range loudspeakers and a Danley TH118 subwoofer up against other ‘A-list’ brands. Within five minutes, everybody involved was convinced that Danley was undoubtedly the way to go.”

The new system at Doka centers on four of Danley’s flagship SH50s. They are arranged two per side, close-packed. Two Danley TH118 subwoofers round out the low end.
One four-channel MC2 Audio Delta DSP 80 powers the Danley SH50s, and one four-channel MC2 Audio Delta DSP 100 powers the Danley TH118s.
“Danley builds products with unmatched sound quality,” Pigeaud said. “The Danley SH50 specifically provides great fidelity and pattern control that extends down to surprisingly low frequencies. Within the coverage angle, the magnitude and phase response are perfectly uniform. Really, the Danley boxes are like high-volume studio monitors, which is exactly what Doka was after. They love it! We even sold two new systems to people who visited Doka and were blown away by its Danley sound system.”
