New booth as a centerpiece featuring awesome audio power, visual elegance and a very small footprint
Austin, TX (May 13, 2014) – An elegant venue for dancing, relaxing and socializing, LANAI Rooftop Lounge in the heart of Austin, TX has great views, comfy couches, stylish décor and a diverse crowd that dances the night away to electronic and dance music. Their previous sound system and DJ booth took up far too much space and looked cluttered, without providing quality audio reproduction. LANAI and sponsoring partner Red Bull requested a custom design solution from BASSBOSS designer David Lee, who created a sound system in a DJ booth centerpiece that captures the aesthetic and offers sound that cleanly covers the entire room. The booth requires a very small footprint, leaving more room for customers and decor.
“The list of technical details that went into making this project sound great and perform ideally for the space is even longer than the extensive list of aesthetic touches that were applied to make it beautiful,” said Lee. The BASSBOSS DJ booth/sound system incorporates a 12,000 W sound system into an elegantly crafted structure that serves as a platform not only for DJ equipment but also as a visual element that focuses attention. The main system components consist of a pair of 21-inch woofers, four 10-inch midrange drivers and two 1.4-inch exit compression drivers on iso-phasic waveguides. Also included is a DJ monitoring system that features dual 8-inch woofers and 1-inch exit compression drivers on tractrix waveguides. On the main system, a 3400 W amplifier module powers each of the 21-inch woofers. The midrange drivers are powered with 750 W each, or 1500 W per side, and the tweeters each have over 500 W available. For the monitors, each side has a 2 channel 700 W amplifier. Four discrete digital signal processors provide crossover, time alignment, equalization and limiter functions.
According to Lesliann Nemeth, LANAI's Creative Director, the sound is now ideal for the space: “Since it is a custom-built system, we were able to have it set within the parameters of our outdoor music permit, which was a big issue for us before. It is amazing the level of sound we can get being that it is concentrated within the booth.”
Not only has the sound quality been improved, but the new BASSBOSS DJ Booth has also enhanced the club’s appearance. “The booth is absolutely stunning,” Nemeth says. “It stands out as a focal point and it matches our decor perfectly. BASSBOSS really put a lot of little details into it to make sure that it looked just as fantastic as it sounds,” she continues. “Since Red Bull is our partner, their branding is an essential part of the booth, and BASSBOSS managed to execute this very tastefully.” The custom, laser-cut Lexan front has a color-changing LED of the iconic Red Bull logo that is immediately recognizable from all around the room. BASSBOSS succeeded in making this project a great customer experience: “From conception to installation they listened to exactly what I was looking for aesthetically and in regards to my needs for sound. I am beyond pleased with the entire experience and I can now confidently say that I have one of the hottest booths and best sound systems in Austin,” confirms Nemeth.
