Martin Audio has revealed that Middlesex Sound & Light (MSL) recently completed the ninth installation in the “high intensity 1Rebel gym infrastructure” at 1Rebel Oxford Circus, featuring “high-octane sound reinforcement from the Martin Audio catalogue”.
Project manager and designer Toby Jones said, “At Oxford Circus, the profile and raw sound of BlacklineX perfectly suit the brick-built industrial theme of the interior. BlacklineX again met all the requirements for performance and budget, and this is the third venue in which it is featured.”
1Rebel Oxford Circus features two of the three large studio concepts: Rumble, which hosts “explosive” boxing sessions for 55 clients “immersed in 45 minutes of sound and energy”, and Reshape, which hosts a dynamic programme of weights, core and cardio training, equipped for 25 people.
The sound in Rumble is played out through 12 Blackline X8s mounted on the boxing structure, with two SX112 subwoofers on the floor. Reshape features ten ceiling-mounted Blackline X8s around the perimeter with Powerdrive attachments, and two further SX112 subs.
Giles Dean, co-owner of 1Rebel, said, “MSL has really understood the high-octane environments we’ve been looking to create with their technology. Central to this have been the Martin Audio sound systems, which on the one hand have all the potency necessary to accompany a high intensity workout while at the same time providing evenly distributed background coverage for the non-studio areas, with absolute clarity.”
