VideoSonic Systems install EV’ EVID™ loudspeakers at hot new ’hotel QT’, New York City

March 25th, 2005



Glenn Polly, President of VideoSonic Systems reported: “hotel QT isn’t your average hotel, and EVIDs aren’t your average surface-mountable loudspeakers. hotel QT offers the personalized level of service you’d associate with the finest hotels, all in a very stylish environment centered around a spa, with a swimming pool, steam rooms, sauna, massage areas and a gym. Rather than evening wear, guests wear swimming costumes! They have a different DJ every night, and a dance floor that circles around the swimming pool. You can swim up to the backside of the bar and order drinks. Just outside the swimming pool area is an upstairs lounge and downstairs lounge. All three zones are packed with white EVID 4.2 speakers. The room containing the pool was a challenge, being all cedar wood and hard surfaces, but things sound great in there. We put in four clusters of four EVID 4.2s, mounted on the AB-64 brackets (custom powder coated in white), for 360-degree coverage in each cluster. In the downstairs lounge we installed another 16 EVIDs in this configuration, and we mounted 8 more individually upstairs using the Strong-Arm-Mount™. The EVIDs can handle high decibel levels when the DJs are on, and are ideal for program playback at lower volumes. Mark Kroekel, the architect on the project, loves the look of the EVIDs as much as the guests love the sound - both elements are crisp and focused throughout the hotel. Needless to say, the owners are very happy.“

“The owners wanted to install loudspeakers that would complement the architecture and interior design of the hotel, and only the EVIDs looked - and sounded - the part. Rather than being a company that simply specs product, we specialize more in design and build work. We began in the early stages of this project, meeting with the hotel owner and his designers, to really figure out what the spaces needed in terms of performance, sound quality, ease of use, ease of maintenance, and, of course, the architectural appeal. We work with a lot of architects and designers in the museum industry, retail stores, and in specialized environments like this - lounge areas in an upscale hotel in New York City. EVIDs adapt to all of these locations perfectly on both an acoustic and aesthetic level.“

In closing, Polly commented on why working with EV makes a difference: “We’ve been in business since 1981, and have been satisfied Electro-Voice dealers for a long time now. EV offers diverse range of application-specific products. This saves time on the back-end of things when it comes to ordering, as we can do a “one stop shop’ with EV, finding the right speakers, DSP components, amplifiers, wireless systems and microphones for the job. For example, when we order EV ceiling speakers, they are packaged with the grille, back box and tile bridge; there is no need to look up individual SKU numbers for these accessories, and we always have them on hand if needed. Details like this make EV one of our strongest product lines - they offer total system solutions to specifically meet the audio applications of all shapes and sizes that we encounter on a daily basis in New York City.“
