New York’s Pig ‘n’ Whistle Sounds Better than Ever with Renkus-Heinz

New York, NY – March 2014… In a city with no shortage of Irish pubs, the Pig ‘n’ Whistle Murray Hill truly stands out. At once unique and familiar, it’s a warm, welcoming space where neighborhood residents and visitors alike can gather, chat, enjoy a drink, and watch their favorite game.

But the room’s cozy confines can present some acoustical challenges, with its long, narrow dimensions and high-beamed ceilings making it difficult to achieve the right balance of sound across the entire space. “It’s a relatively narrow room, which makes it hard to provide consistent coverage,” explains John Paturno of Rego Park, NY-based Starview Audio. “The high ceilings add to the boominess.”

The demand was for a budget conscious, high quality sound system that would meet the pub’s needs for intelligibility and tight pattern control. Starview selected a system centered on ten Renkus-Heinz CFX 61 two-way Complex Conic loudspeakers. Six speakers cover the pub area in front, with the remaining four serving the rear dining space. The system is powered by Powersoft amplification, with processing handled by Symetrix Solus 8.

“The CFX61’s coverage pattern is very tight and very accurate, and gives us seamless coverage from box to box with wider spacing between the cabinets,” offers Paturno. “That translates to fewer speakers than we would have needed to achieve this degree of consistency with a different solution.”

Paturno adds, “they needed a system that could provide a comfortable level of background music for the day crowd, but had the capability to get loud enough for the sports crowd. The CFX61 delivers great speech intelligibility, which is great when there’s a full house watching the game.”

Clearly, the new system has more than met the pub’s needs. “Everyone involved is truly pleased with the results,” Paturno reports.
