Adding another staple to the Las Vegas bar, restaurant and nightclub scene, systems integration firm R2W designed and installed a complete JBL loudspeaker system at Fine Entertainmentâ€™s recently constructed PBR Rock Bar to support all audio from background restaurant music to televised sporting events and live rock concerts.
The 1,100-capacity venue, located in the Miracle Mile complex at the Las Vegas Planet Hollywood Hotel, combines a rock and roll atmosphere with a nightclub, American grill, more than 100 high-definition televisions and a mechanical bull to offer patrons a Vegas experience like no other. In addition, the PBR Rock Barâ€™s main dining hall transforms into a stage for live performances after dark.
R2W installed 21 JBL AM7212/95 12-inch full-range 2-way loudspeakers, five ASB6125 high-power dual subwoofers, eight AC28/26 2-way loudspeakers and four Control 24CT 2-way ceiling speakers for the 13,000 square-foot dining/bar area, along with 15 JBL Control
28T-60 2-high-output speakers for the 3,000-square foot outdoor patio area.
The PBR Rock Bar, which is licensed under the Professional Bullriders Association, also features BSS Soundweb London BLU-160, BLU-120 and BLU-8 for multi-zone control and signal distribution.
â€œHaving worked with JBL loudspeakers for years, we have a lot of experience with the brand and these particular models. We are aware of the excellent cost-to-performance ratio that comes with JBL,â€? stated David Starck, system engineer for the Las Vegas-based R2W. â€œCombining multiple series of loudspeakers from JBL, we supplied the Rock Bar with a system that easily transforms from the restaurant setting to a live sound hot spot.â€?
â€œWe needed really high SPL levels for this install and the JBL speakers were perfect,â€? said Kevin Ruschmann, project manager, R2W. â€œWe chose the high-powered JBL system and it turned out very nicely. Everything sounds great in the Rock Bar.â€?
