EAW’s SMS2124B Surface
Mount Loudspeaker at
Blue Martini Lounge.
Whitinsville, MA (April 23, 2009)–The Blue Martini Lounge has locations in Boca Raton, Ft. Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Miami, Naples, Orlando, Phoenix/Scottsdale, Tampa and West Palm Beach. To keep the patios full of music, Blue Martini has chosen the SMS2124B Surface Mount Loudspeaker from EAW.
Blue Martini’s club location in West Palm Beach has already installed the SMS2124B speaker in its patio area, bringing the Blue Martini experience to patrons enjoying the great weather. SMS2124B’s will be installed in the other locations in the coming months, and future Blue Martini Lounges scheduled for other markets will open with SMS2124B’s already installed.
“These are the best small loudspeakers for this type of application,” says Tom Griffin, President of Griffin Automation of Port St. Lucie, Florida, which handles the lighting for the Blue Martini locations in Florida and is doing many of the EAW SMS2124B patio upgrades, including the one at the Miami location. Next on the schedule are the Ft. Lauderdale, Tampa and Orlando clubs, which will each have a dozen SMS2124B speakers encircling the patio areas, allowing patrons to enjoy a seamless transition between inside and out.
According to Griffin, the suggestion to install SMS2124B’s was made by Blue Martini’s Byron Gardner, who encountered the SMS2124B in a club in Tampa and decided that it would be the patio speaker for all of his Lounges, replacing existing systems from another manufacturer.
“It’s a good, full-range speaker that brings great sound and good low frequencies to a patio environment,” says Griffin, adding that the weather-resistant loudspeaker is also robust and easy to install, thanks to EAW’s proprietary Clip-Fit system. “It’s a great single-speaker solution.”
