Sydney’s Club Marconi now provides sporting, entertainment, educational and social services for a whole community of varying cultures and origins. The club recently extended its facilities to include a 1,050 capacity multipurpose music venue, the Casa Nightclub, with an impressive sound system based around Allen & Heath's iDR DSP system.

A good sound system was high on the agenda for this new project, so Marconi appointed AV contractor, Total Concept Projects (TCP, Sydney), to manage the audio installation. The design brief specified a split system that could be used as a front of house concert system or a high-powered club system with music sources surrounding the dance floor.

The complexities of signal routing, including 16 individual output channels, plus room EQ, delays, limiting and crossovers for the two configurations--FOH and Club--are stored in an Allen & Heath iDR-8 digital processor.

Exclusively powered by QSC PLX Series amplifiers, TCP selected the new Martin BlackLine H3H horizontal configuration speaker system, which focuses power into a satellite cabinet.
