EAW loudspeakers and processors keep the hits coming at this recently renovated historic venue

South Africa-based firm Surgesound provides EAW components for Clapham Grand London and several other venues

Whitinsville, MA, USA – London, England’s Clapham Grand nightclub, located in a historic theater space, was recently renovated, and the club’s P.A. system features outstanding sound thanks to loudspeaker and processor components from EAW, a world leader in audio system technology. South Africa-based pro audio distributor/installer Surgesound supplied the equipment, and the London branch of the SSE Audio Group installed the system and is in charge of its maintenance.

The system consists of four EAW DC4 Medium-Format Dance Club Loudspeakers, four EAW DCS2 Bent Horn Dance Subwoofers, 10 EAW JFX100i Compact Full-Range Loudspeakers and one EAW UX8800 Digital Signal Processor. Lab.gruppen FP+

Series and C Series units are used for amplification.

The owner of London’s Clapham Grand also has several venues throughout South Africa, many of which feature EAW units supplied by Surgesound. Andrew Rowan, Managing Member of Surgesound, stated, “We have equipped many of those venues with EAW, including the award-winning Manhattan Club in Rivonia, Johannesburg, as well as Tiger Tiger, which is located in Cape Town. And at the same time Clapham Grand London was set up, we were installing a similar system at another Clapham Grand in Durban, South Africa. For that system, we used EAW JFX88 Compact Full-Range Loudspeakers instead of JFX100i’s, but other than that the specifications are identical.�

Rowan continued, “We have supplied EAW products for spaces throughout South Africa and even in different parts of the world, and everyone is always pleased with EAW’s sound quality, power and control. A venue like London’s Clapham Grand relies on keeping the sound energetic and loud, yet with a balanced clarity, and EAW components exceed the demands of club-goers and audio professionals alike.�
