For the past three years, Los Angeles-based Club Mobius has been using a Turbosound rig that, according to club owner and promoter Robert Diaz, can be heard for some considerable distance.

In the main room, eight Turbosound Floodlight Series TFL-760H active three-way, mid-high enclosures are combined with eight TSW-718 dual 18-inch low-frequency speakers and four TSW-124 single 24-inch subwoofer units; the system is powered by 20,000 watts of QSC amplifiers. A pair of TSE-111 two-way enclosures and a pair of single 18-inch bass units cover a smaller lounge and dance studio upstairs. XTA, BSS and Turbosound processors provide speaker control throughout.

"You can walk a block-and-a-half and the floor is still vibrating, through several buildings," said Diaz. "Those are the best bass cabinets for low frequencies. Four will do a stadium, really."

Although Club Mobius has played host to top DJs, Diaz and his business partner Christian Manchester have turned theMobius Arts Performance Center into a black-box space that is equal parts gallery, performance space and traditional DJ-friendly nightclub venue. "We've been developing Mobius over the last year-and-a-half, doing special events, gallery shows, one-off events," said Diaz. But the club is only a small part of the pair's business ventures, which revolves around Whump Sound, the duo's sound, lighting and production company.
