When Barcelona-based sound contractor and XTA distributor Adagio SA was commissioned to design the audio system for the 4,000-capacity B3 multi-room dance venue in Dos Hermanas (near Seville), the demanding audio specification meant that only XTA system processing would be able to deliver the audio quality that was needed.
The club‘s owner, José Miguel Losada, wanted a state-of-the-art audio system delivering ultimate quality sound, so Adagio SA‘s Bernat Camacho and Jordi Rosselló specified XTA processors and MC2 amplifiers to control and drive the Martin Audio loudspeaker systems.
The brand new B3 venue has three floors and the audio system was required to be divided into four discrete zones – the main entrance, main dancefloor, Buda Chillout Room (with its associated entrance) and the White Room.
Normally the main entrance and dancefloor work as a single zone, the music from the main dancefloor being fed to both areas, while the upstairs rooms have their own DJ systems which are independent both of each other and of the downstairs areas. However, should the need arise, the XTA processors allow music to be routed from any of the zones to all of the others.
The heart of the system is an XTA DS800 audio distribution unit. This is complemented by two XTA DP226s and a DP224 for loudspeaker management in the main dancefloor area, while the main entrance, Buda Chillout Room and White Room all feature a DP6i Installation Controller.
Amplification is by eight MC2 E45s and an E25 on the main dance floor, with E25s throughout the rest of the club – five in the White Room, three in the Buda Chillout Room and three in the main entrance. Additionally, an XTA DP6i and MC2 E475 were installed for the main dance floor‘s stage and DJ monitors.
“In B3 we used only the highest quality equipment,” says Bernat Camacho. “And XTA is the highest quality. I‘ve used other loudspeaker controllers, but with XTA I have never had a single problem. The company‘s technical support is also fabulous, you always get a quick response to any questions.
“XTA is undoubtedly one of the best equipment brands we have in Spain. And, most importantly, everyone at B3 is delighted with the sound.”
