Spearmint Rhino experience lifted by new EV system

December 1, 2008

A new Electro-Voice foreground and background sound system installation is boosting the customer experience at Spearmint Rhino Rouge, one of the UK’s best-known gentlemen’s clubs, set in Brighton’s club district.

The first Spearmint Rhino Gentlemen’s Clubs were established over 12 years ago in the USA, and have since become a popular fixture throughout the UK. Midlands-based installation company ALG Sound & Lighting was commissioned to equip the club on Brighton’s sea-front, and chose ZX1s and EViD loudspeakers from the Electro-Voice range.

“We install a lot of EV equipment and we knew that the ZX1s would give us the coverage we wanted as well as high SPLs on the dance floor.”

“The club is in one of the older buildings in town,“ explains Andy Gilbert of ALG, “so there are high and low ceilings in different rooms. We install a lot of EV equipment and we knew that the ZX1s would give us the coverage we wanted as well as high SPLs on the dance floor.“

12 of EV’s high-performance compact ZX1s have been wall-mounted to provide output for the dance stages, one on each floor of the two-storey club. Despite their small size - just 18“ tall - these units have exceptional low-frequency response and high-output capability.

Zoned into 8 independently-controlled areas, the club’s sound design uses 24x EViD C4.2 surface-mount speakers which have mainly been fitted in the booths; these highly styled models provide the bass response of much bigger enclosures, and are ideal for an application like this which demands full-range audio in a limited space. A further 12x EViD ceiling speakers have been installed in the entrance, staircases and toilets; chosen for its compact design which fits in tight areas, the EViD C4.2 features excellent bandwidth in an aesthetically pleasing, unobtrusive installation profile.
