Recently, the owners of the 7,000 square-foot Odissea Fun City Dance Club decided their previous system had served its purpose well but the time had come to upgrade to something special. Prase Media Technologies, Clair Brothers Italian distributor, was asked to suggest an upgrade for the celebration of the club’s twenty-fifth anniversary.

Emanuele “Lele” Luongo, product manager at Prase, along with Ivan Omiciuolo and Matteo Barbaro, whom supported the project in all its phases, recommended new Clair Brothers loudspeakers.

“The main challenge in this room,” explains Luongo, “was to achieve homogeneity in the distribution of low frequencies while also minimizing the reflections, within the entire audio range, caused by metal sets and mirrors on the side walls of the dance floor. We also worked to curb the incidence of medium-high range in the bar areas.”

To overcome these acoustical issues, the PA system that was installed consists of two Clair Brothers kiTCurve12 clusters (four cabinets each) and eight CS218 subwoofers.

Describes Luongo, “The subwoofers follow the perimeter of the stage, with two subs located in the center, positioned as an inverted stack to help reduce the impact of low frequencies in the console area.”

In addition to utilizing the kiTCurve12 as the main system, there is also a pair of the exact same kiTCurve12’s being used as DJ monitors to allow the DJ to hear the exact timbre that the audience hears. The stunning result is an LR system with controlled dispersion teamed with a horizontal sub array which allows for a higher SPL than the club’s previous system was able to deliver.

“The excellent combination of the compact dimensions of the cabinets with the high performance of Lake processing on all the PLM and amplification channels,” concludes Luongo, “made it easy for us to meet all the requirements of this historic twenty-fifth anniversary installation. Once again, Clair Brothers speakers come through with flying colors. Odissea Fun City Dance Club is set up for great sound for a long time to come. There’s no doubt in my mind that everyone who listens will notice a huge improvement. It may even make them dance.”
