Spearmint Rhino experience lifted by new EV system

December 1st, 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.

“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.
