Ultra-luxury club Pangaea, which is located in Delhi’s Ashok Hotel, has been installed with a Outline loudspeaker solution comprising multiple of the company’s loudspeaker models.
The 450-capacity club comes as the latest addition to the numerous world-famous exclusive clubs owned by Michael Ault, a pre-eminent club operator with more than thirty nightclubs operating in key markets such as New York, Miami Beach, Los Angeles, Bermuda, Sao Paulo and Marbella.
Outline’s distributor for India, New Delhi-based White Eagle Entertainment Pvt, supplied and installed the audio, lighting and laser equipment at the venue. The team was led by the company's MD Arun Kalra, whose brief was to specify a system with “high energy sound that would encourage everyone to dance.” Arun also fielded Outline’s Open Array software to determine the optimum configuration and mounting positions.
The main system comprises six Outline Doppia II 9075P three-way loudspeakers alongside four Outline DVS 15 wide range loudspeakers. These are supplemented by two Outline DVS 12 high efficiency loudspeakers and two Outline Eidos 10 two-way loudspeakers. All the loudspeaker are equipped with passive low-loss crossovers, catering for mid-high frequencies.
Powering lower frequencies are six Outline DBS 18-2 subwoofers working in tandem with two Outline Eidos 118S subwoofers. These produce a peak SPL of 135 dB at 1m.
The high-impact set-up is driven by nine amplifiers: a combination of five Outline T-Five and two Outline T-Eleven and two Outline DPA 1004 digitally processed models.
The club, which was completed ahead of schedule and below budget, is, according to Ault, “Unquestionably one of the most beautiful clubs I have ever seen” and has received unprecedented media coverage worldwide with extensive articles and reports by top periodicals and TV networks.
