Recently Spectrum Lighting and Sound based in Christchurch installed a Harman Audio system into Flip Out Indoor Trampoline Arena. Flip Out is an indoor entertainment space, including the main trampoline arena and a mezzanine with café and DJ area that can be booked out for children’s parties. This venue is all about entertainment and the audio system needed to cover a large area and be able to cut through at times very loud background noise.
After careful consultation with the client and design support from Jpro, Spectrum’s Sales and Installs Manager Robert Oliver specified a low cost but high impact solution for the venue.
The main arena was covered using 10 x JBL Pro EON612 12” powered loudspeakers suspended from the ceiling and four EON618S 18” powered subwoofers. To make sure the audio playback was uniform and offered coherent coverage throughout the large main arena it has been split into three zones delay has been included in the design. The mezzanine area which housed the Café/DJ area is another zone and audio is covered by one EON612 with an upgrade path for more speakers when the venue is ready.
A BSS Soundweb BLU-100 12x8 processor controls the different zones and sources and a BSS Contrio EC-4BV wall controller was installed for simple control of the venue. Spectrum have designed an iPad control panel using HiQnet Motion Control program for wireless remote control.
Nicholas from Jpro comments “Once installed what I found quite surprising is how little EQ the system required, there was about 2-3dB in the 200-250Hz range, but apart from that it sounded great right out of the box”. Robert added “I was really impressed with the EON’s, they sound fantastic and the fact that they have fly points at that price point, you really can’t go wrong with them for budget conscious installs”.
Flip Out has been open for several months now and Georgea the operations manager comments “The Sound System exceeded our expectations both on sound quality and ease-of-use”.
