A recent refurbishment project at Georgia Browns, a sports and entertainment venue in the town of Hindley, Greater Manchester that hosts live bands, DJ sets and more, includes a new sound system headed by Optimal Audio components in a project by the custom installation team at system provider Richer Sounds.
Richer Sounds custom installation manager Tim Smith and his team designed the system in conjunction with the venue, with subcontractor James Mahon of Hi-Tech AV, who installed the system, saying of the Optimal Audio components, “Right out of the box, you could tell they were going to be good. The build quality looked superb and the speakers duly delivered sound to match.”
Specifically, two Cuboid 15 and two Cuboid 10 passive on-wall loudspeakers are installed in the demanding areas of the room close to the stage, with a further eight Cuboid 8 units taking care of the rest of the space. A single Sub 15 and a pair of Sub 10 units are discreetly located beneath seating areas to deliver the low end. The system is driven by three SmartAmp 30 amplifiers with integral DSP.
Smith concludes, “The system performs wonderfully, providing a balanced audio performance for different volume levels. There’s no doubt that the quality and performance of Optimal Audio’s product range is excellent — the client is very happy with the outcome, which was achieved for a very competitive outlay.”
