Reykjavik, Iceland (January 30, 2014)—The 30,000 square foot Keiluhöllin Egilshöll isn't just any bowling alley, and to help ensure that, the facility tapped Reykjavik-based AV designers ETOS to help design a sound system for its acoustical challenges.
As ETOS General Manager Jakob Kristinsson explains, the audio system had to not only transmit intelligible announcements over the din of a bowling alley, but also deliver full spectrum sound and bass for music and live DJs—hence the decision to go with the Renkus-Heinz CF/CFX series.
Across the six zones covering the 22 lanes and VIP area, ETOS installed 12 CFX151 cabinets, with six CFX18S subwoofers for low end reinforcement. The CFX151s feature a two-inch extended range titanium HF driver and a 15-inch heavy duty woofer that can handle up to 700W.
Augmenting the primary setup, six CFX121 cabinets in three zones cover the restaurant area, with four more CF121 units across the four zones covering the sports bar and cafe. Audio networking is courtesy of two Peavey MediaMatrix Nion n6 systems.
