Martin Audio has continued it association with Novus Leisure’s Tiger Tiger clubs, with its CDD range of loudspeakers specified for the brand’s original multi-room venue in London’s West End by suppliers Middlesex Sound & Light (MSL).
“We had also carried out a number of other recent refits for Novus using Martin Audio’s AQ range, which we were great fans of,” said MSL project director, Darrel Olivier. “But this high profile venue provided the perfect opportunity to debut the new CDD. In terms of aesthetics and sound quality CDD is a definite improvement, offering wider dispersion, as well as being less obtrusive.”
According to Novus Leisure’s project manager, Graeme Sutherland, the company had wanted to create a premium space, and looked at various options with Olivier before making the loudspeaker decision.
MSL first reviewed the existing loudspeaker positional strategy with some of the speakers redeployed to ensure even sound coverage and ground-mounting the new subs enabled maximum impact and LF extension.
The Tiger Bar and dancefloor area have been equipped with four CDD15, four CDD12 and three S218X subs, while LUXE has been fitted with six CDD10 and an existing AQ215 sub which has been redeployed. Also the two restaurant areas, which are now linked more visibly to the main bar, have been fitted with two CDD10 and CSX212 subs.
Working with interior designer Terri Naylor of Dakota Design, MSL were responsible for the full AV integration, which features a giant floor to ceiling high-resolution graphics wall in the main Tiger Bar.
Novus Leisure regional operations manager, Jenna Edwards, said: “Sound is the most important element when you are out clubbing and this system is phenomenal to listen to.”
