RUMOURS RE-EQUIPS WITH MARTIN AUDIO AQ SYSTEM

Blackpool, England–A landmark venue on the Blackpool dance scene for many years, Rumours recently underwent a complete refurbishment.

The combined 800-capacity wine bar, nightclub and party venue brought in Peter Bawden‘s Audio Sound Advice to create a new technology infrastructure. Owners Betawell Ltd offered the contract after ASA had successfully worked on Rumours‘ counterpart club, the 300-capacity urban nightclub Hush located underneath.

Looking to redefine the way Blackpool parties at night, Bawden was entrusted with outfitting the venue with a top-quality sound, lighting and video system. To satisfy the demanding sound reinforcement requirements, he turned exclusively to Martin Audio.

“We‘ve worked with the venue for almost 20 years, so we know it inside out,” Bawden said. Out went the old reinforcement system to be replaced by Martin Audio‘s sleek new two-way passive AQ architectural range.

Flown and angled down onto the dance floor via long ceiling brackets are four AQ12‘s, with a ground-stacked AQ215, while seven of the smaller AQ8‘s handle the dance floor periphery. Elsewhere, a combination of five AQ8‘s act as a line source at the bar, with 12 x EM15‘s infilling as necessary. A pair of AQ210 subs is ingeniously built into the seating at the rear, where a further pair of Martin Audio Blackline S12‘s completes the installation.

Also included in Audio Sound Advice‘s design were moving lights, multiple TFT and plasma screens and a pair of overhead digital projectors, with subtle LED color-changing throughout the building.

Peter Bawden says that Martin Audio has been his first choice loudspeaker brand since turning to the company‘s product catalogue four years ago. “There was never any consideration of going with any other brand,” he says. “The DJ‘s love the system and the AQ‘s do exactly what they say on the box.”

Rumours is just one of several high-profile bars Audio Sound Advice has recently fitted out using Martin Audio series loudspeakers. They have also completed the sound system at the swanky Septembers Champagne Bar & Restaurant in Blackpool for David Moseley (using EM15‘s and C115‘s) and Blue Jay Way in Penrith–a converted bank–for Edward Cowin‘s Bars Aloud Ltd. Here, five AQ8‘s operate as a full range mono line source– two of them firing backwards–eliminating the need for low-frequency reinforcement.
