Volt Club Opens in London with Electro-Voice QRX

May 7th, 2007

Built over two floors, the Volt Club is owned by Volt Productions, a company that already runs a successful nightclub operation in Uganda. Taking over two former club venues, Volt has fully refurbished and soundproofed the space, addressing the problems of noise leakage that were causing complaints from residential neighbors. Walls, ceiling and floors have been acoustically treated; even the fire exits are now connected to the club’s sound system, so that if anyone opens a door, the music immediately shuts off.

For the Volt Club’s main dance floor, a powerful Electro-Voice QRx loudspeaker system has been specified and installed by club sound engineer Muhamad Adam. A long-time user of Electro-Voice in Uganda, Adam declares that EV is his favorite brand of loudspeaker; for the Edmonton venue, he researched the technology on the EV website, ordered the hardware from A.C.Lighting, and installed everything with his in-house team.

“Considering the size of the room, and the height of the speaker positions, I picked the QRx 115/75 with its 15in LF woofer rather than the 12in version,“ explains Adam. He has configured the system with six 115/75 high-output full-range enclosures, wall-mounted. “There are two pairs facing each other across the dance floor. People tend to dance where the music is at its loudest, so I positioned one pair of speakers in order to move them away from the DJ booth. The other pair addresses the areas around the bar where people tend to congregate. The remaining two QRx115/75s effectively act as infills.“

Currently the system provides heavy bass to around 35-50Hz, but Muhamad Adam is intending to replace the QRx218S subs with EV Xds subs from the X-Array range to extend the low-end output even further.

The Volt Club is already attracting interest from London’s R&B and hip-hop stars; singer Keisha White has been in to enjoy the vibe, and the club has hosted PAs by Boyz II Men, and celebrated Ugandan musicians such as Bobi Wine and Butcherman.
