Matched HARMAN Professional solution helps Audio Install overcome the raucous ambience of a Bavarian Bierkeller

Liverpool-based Audio Install has carried out a major sound installation at the new 1000-capacity Bierkeller in Cardiff — the fourth Bavarian style emporium for brand operators, Burning Night Group. For the optimum solution in a raucous, challenging environment (incorporating three separate bars with different requirements) he turned to the catalogue of the Harman Professional brands, and then called on the company’s UK and Ireland distributors, Sound Technology Ltd, to provide sales and installation support.

Ian Davis’s company based its audio design around a matched Crown / JBL VRX line array system, with process and control provided by premium Soundcraft, BSS and dbx digital components, along with AKG mics. This forms part of a full AV package.

The venue itself is split into three main areas on the ground floor of Stadium Plaza — the Bierkeller, Shooters Sports Bar and Around The World In 80 Beers (ATW). “In the Bierkeller area we needed to have a good, solid, front of house sound system for the oompah bands to play through without too much sound bleeding through the ceiling to the fitness club above,” explained Ian Davis
