London venue The Mermaid has invested £60k in upgrading its Auditorium’s audio system with Bose’s latest technology.
The new audio system was showcased last night (16 October) in front of 300 event organisers at the River Rooms 1st birthday party.
The new audio system provides vocal reinforcement for presentations and PA announcements, as well as for recorded and live music. The high fidelity sound delivers on clarity, projection, even sound coverage and distribution of low frequency throughout The Auditorium’s 600-tiered seating.
The Bose system consists of six Bose RoomMatch modules that form an array to left and to right, with ground stacked bass modules to each side. The system is powered by three Bose PowerMatch amplifiers, and DSP via a Bose ControlSpace ESP-00, with an AES input card to allow digital input from a separate mixing desk.
“We selected the Bose system as it is custom built for The Auditorium and offers a great impactful sound for all scenarios, especially when additional bass is required,” said The Mermaid’s technical manager Andy Munro. “Sound coverage is excellent, with music and speech reaching every seat in the house, which enhances the enjoyment and experience of delegates and guests.
“The consistency of coverage and reliability of the system helps to alleviate some of the pressures on the technical team, and with such intuitive controls, we have felt a solid reassurance during all the events where the system has been used.”
