CDD stars at new Brisbane waterfront venue
Ampd Electronics has helped complement a new Brisbane-based Cantonese restaurant’s fine menu with a high-quality Martin Audio sound system.
The restaurant needed help designing and implementing an audio system that delivers high-quality audio across it’s two storeys while also being operable through a single touch point by any staff member.
Creating a stunning aural environment, Ampd Electronics designed, modelled and confirmed all layouts prior to install. The integrators based the solution around Martin Audio’s popular coaxial differential dispersion (CDD) series, all under QSYS control.
Working alongside the interior designers, the company figured out the best ways to even the coverage of the system’s sleek design, complementing the intricate wood panelling and lines in the walls, ceiling.
Specifying 11 of the powerful CDD8 for the interior, with 14 weatherised CDD8-WR and six CDD6-WR for seamless audio when transitioning from inside to outside areas, these IP54-rated outdoor speakers were hidden in the surrounding gardens to maintain the restaurant’s aesthetic and the immersive experience for customers.
A further four SX110 ultra-compact subwoofers provide LF extension where necessary.
The signature sound of Martin Audio’s ceiling speaker range in the shape of 19 C6.8T ceiling speakers and a C8.1T (for the higher ceiling area) continue the experience throughout the ancillary areas, such as back hallways and bathrooms of the restaurant.
Martin Audio has a heavy presence right through the Howard Smith Wharves development, that has been constructed at a cost of 250m AUD on a premium waterfront site.
