Goldbäckerei Grote, which has been serving its customers in the Sauerland, Germany region for more than 100 years, recently opened a new dining location on the shores of Lake Sorpe (Sundern) that has been equipped with Martin Audio loudspeakers by AV service company Event Active of Schmallenberg.
Event Active Managing Director Noel Büchte explains, “Goldbäckerei Grote wanted to offer a high-quality event location with its “Heimathafen” [an events space on the venue’s upper floor]. Therefore, we planned the technology so that the products could be perfectly integrated and deliver an excellent performance.”
Martin Audio loudspeakers were used exclusively for the entire project. Büchte states, “Martin Audio’s portfolio offers many solutions for the installation sector, so we were able to use several product lines: weatherproof outdoor loudspeakers, budget-oriented background speakers and high-quality ceiling speakers — all available in high or low impedance versions.”
Almost 50 loudspeakers from the ADORN, Ceiling and CDD series have been integrated unobtrusively into the design. The loudspeakers also have another advantage, Büchte adds: “Since we were integrating a complex audio matrix, we naturally also needed the matching loudspeaker presets for this. Unlike some other manufacturers, Martin Audio is very transparent—the preset data of the installed loudspeakers can simply be downloaded from the home page and integrated into the DSP used.”
The event service provider from Schmallenberg has gained plenty of experience with Martin Audio products — in addition to its own rental equipment, many projects have been realized with the company’s loudspeakers in the past. “Martin Audio’s portfolio offers a wide range of loudspeakers and peripherals, and there is a suitable solution for every sound reinforcement task,” Büchte in concludes. “We also work very closely with [Martin Audio German distributors] Audio-Technica GmbH. This means that projects can be planned and implemented very flexibly.”
