The new Karova Club in Warsaw has opened with an advanced technology infrastructure, featuring a CDD (Coaxial Differential Dispersion) and BlacklineX solution from Martin Audio.
The system was specified by the firm’s Polish distributor Phono Media, whose director Jacek Stanislawski explained: “This is a brand new club and the owner approached them for a quotation, believing that Martin Audio would be a perfect solution for the club sound. The owner, Marcin, has a lot of knowledge and passion for sound and he demands the same high quality as he would expect at home. His goal was to provide hi-fi quality to achieve the same result with classic club music.
“Once LFX (system integrator) had made a presentation, showing references of installations at the Ministry of Sound and fabric—and we had carried out a listening demo with CDD—they were sold.”
The 400-capacity venue is divided into two DJ booths and four other music zones — including a VIP area, Patio Smoking Room.
To achieve even coverage throughout, the company proposed four CCD12 and four CSX118 subwoofers as the main dancefloor sound. For stage sound they provided four Blackline X8 and Blackline X210 sub.
Project managing the installation were Stanislawski and LFX owner, Maciek Karczynski. Lukasz Rybinski was responsible for tuning the system, using Martin Audio’s proprietary VU-NET, along with Smaart software.
Stanislawski concluded: “The CDD speakers offer great transparency and fulfil the client’s requirements 100%. In the short time we have been distributing Martin Audio we have carried out a number of installations with their systems, including Club 54.”
