The new Karova Club in Warsaw has opened, with an advanced technology infrastructure. As a central component of the AV fit-out, Phono Media, Martin Audio’s recently appointed Polish distributor, supplied system integrator LFX with a CDD (Coaxial Differential Dispersion) and BlacklineX solution to fulfil the owners’ request for the Martin Audio brand cachet.
Explained Phono Media director Jacek Stanislawski: “This is a brand new club and the owner approached them for a quotation, believing that Martin Audio would be a perfect solution for the club sound. The owner, Marcin, has a lot of knowledge and passion for sound and he demands the same high quality as he would expect at home. His goal was to provide hi-fi quality to achieve the same result with classic club music.
“Once LFX had made a presentation, showing references of installations at the Ministry of Sound, and fabric – and we had carried out a listening demo with CDD – they were sold.”
The 400-capacity venue is divided into two DJ booths and four other music zones — including a VIP area and patio smoking room.
To achieve even coverage throughout, four CCD12 and four CSX118 subwoofers were proposed as the main dancefloor sound. Four Blackline X8 and Blackline X210 sub provide stage sound.
Project managing the installation were Jacek Stanislawski and LFX owner, Maciek Karczynski. Lukasz Rybinski was responsible for tuning the system, using Martin Audio’s proprietary VU-NET, along with Smaart software.
In summary, Stanislawski said: “The CDD speakers offer great transparency and fulfil the client’s requirements 100%. In the short time we have been distributing Martin Audio we have carried out a number of installations with their systems, including Club 54.”
