Turbosound speakers help Mary Janes make a Mint

With both leisure drinkers and employees of London‘s financial heartland the core clientele of the Mint Group owned Mary Janes, the new bar in London‘s Minories exudes sophistication, tinged with an unmistakable sense of fun.

To achieve the required ambience, installation company Rag Support chose Turbosound NuQ loudspeakers to meet the venue‘s core requirement of delivering excellent sound quality, but from visually unobtrusive enclosures.

The 7,000 square feet, 400 capacity venue is spread across two floors and features an open plan bar with glass-floored mezzanine balconies, tables and chairs for dining, with a dance floor on the lower level.

“The challenge was to spread the sound equally across the two floors, because it is a very open plan venue – the upper floor comprises balconies overlooking the lower floor,” says Rag Support‘s Alex Gonzalez.

“Ensuring uniform sound quality and coverage throughout the venue was very important. However, the speakers also had to be visually unobtrusive, which is what made us realise that the NuQ range was ideal.”

With Turbosound‘s Paul McMullan, Rag Support demonstrated the NuQ speakers to Larry Seymour from the Mint Group, who gave them the go-ahead to design a Nu-Q based system to give even coverage throughout the venue, but with more energy focused on the lower level dance floor.

This was achieved with ten NuQ-8 two way 8” + 1” full range cabinets, with two NuQ-B15 1×15” bass cabinets on the lower level, complemented by 12 Impact 50 ceiling loudspeakers and three TSB-110 compact dual coil 10” bandpass subs upstairs.
“We had to be very careful with product choice and placement on the first floor to avoid excessive noise leakage onto the street outside,” says Alex. “But the end result seems to work very well indeed.

“Turbosound‘s product reliability and fast response to problem solving also means that it‘s a system that the client was able to invest in with complete confidence. Indeed, they are delighted with the system and the success of the venue in its first few weeks indicates that the paying public are impressed too!”
