Melbourne’s Crown Casino recently completed a $50 million renovation of its West End, adding new gaming, dining and entertainment spaces. AV consultants Point of View (PoV) chose to fit out a new night club and lounge/entertainment areas with loudspeakers from EAW (Eastern Acoustic Works). AV integrators Urban Intelligence won the contract to fit out the new Merrywell gastro-pub and The Common Room sports bar/live music venue.
The Common Room, modelled on the latest and funkiest bars in New York, features a 200 inch screen behind the bar, DMX Stage Lighting and custom stage rigging. Designed to cater for live jazz, rock, and acoustic performances, the PA features EAW QX FOH, SBK subs and UX8800 speaker processing.
The QX cabinets consist of 4 x 12″ LF Phase-Aligned Drivers with Co-Axial MF & HF horn-loaded drivers enabling audio level to be concentrated on the audience, without spill disturbing the nearby gaming floor. Two SBK250 dual 15 direct radiating subwoofers per side are flown and positioned behind the QX speakers, providing the best possible sound performance in a well-balanced, phase aligned and tuned sound system.
