Dave Chapman from Blaydon Communications (Newcastle, England) completed an installation for Ultimate Leisure’s new venue, Halo, in Leeds. The site, a large 104-year-old deconsecrated Congregational Church comprising an adjacent school and caretakers lodge were all built in the Gothic revival style and are located in the immediate vicinity of Leeds University. Vaulted ceilings and monolithic stoneware presented unique acoustical challenges.
The venue is operated as a nightclub (Halo) and a bar/lounge area (Quilted Llama) with plans for a third area. Halo’s audio system is configured into five main zones, all controllable and addressable via the simple use of a bi-amp Audia Flex unit.
The site will operate throughout the work-week, demanding flexibility from the audio system in performance and operation. To provide a comprehensive system, a select and diverse mix of KV2 EX10 and EX2.2, as well as EX2.5 subwoofers, were used. An acoustic solution for Halo was provided by KV2 Audio, using ES1.0 and ES2.5 with ES1.8 subwoofers, all controlled from EPAK2500 amplifiers, while the lower bar area uses EX10s.
Dave Chapman said, “The ease of installation and sheer dynamic performance of the KV2 system has certainly opened the minds of many critics, as well as the ears of several hundred happy customers.”
