U Street Music Hall

Located on Washington, D.C.’s hip, edgy street for new music, U Street Music Hall is a small dance club that holds up 300. Described as no frills with great audio, the Martin Audio system was the number one focus in developing the space.”

Unlike other rock clubs nearby on U. Street, it is a dance hall that reflects the sentiments of its owners who are all DJs.

Said owner Jess Tittsworth, “It’s no frills, but it’s not a dive bar. It has a little touch of class without being pretentious. You’ve got the infrastructure of a real dance club without any of the snobbery.”

Installed by ITI Audio Inc. under the direction of Adam Weiner working with his partner William McClure and consultant Brian Miller of Edit Design, the sound system consists of four Martin Audio H3 three-way speakers, two H3H three-way speakers, two F15 as DJ monitors, and five powerful WS 218X sub woofers.

Providing power are 12 Crown Macrotech Amps (for dance and FOH systems) paired with three Crown CDi install series speakers (for DJ and stage monitors).

Signal processing includes BSS Soundweb London BLU-16 and XTA DP226 digital signal processors.

Asked why the owners opted for Martin Audio, Weiner responds, “They heard Martin loudspeakers at a previous ITI installation—Ibiza in D.C—and knew it was the best.

“They describe the Martin Audio system as amazing and intense,” Adam recounts. “Not only is it excellent sonically, but it’s a great value too.  The sound quality you get for the money is better than other companies.”
