Chicago, IL (December 20, 2012)—Encompass Technologies recently completed installing Martin Audio speakers at the John Barleycorn River North restaurant, sports bar and nightclub in downtown Chicago.
The site needed to function as a restaurant and bar at night, and then transform into nightclub, Tim Pickett, principal for Encompass, said: “We used 32 AQ28 cabinets throughout the club along with six AQ212s, four AQ215s, three F12s and Martin Audio MA 4.8Q and 6.8Q amplifiers. Two Symetrix Jupiter 8 systems provided turnkey audio processing. I also want to acknowledge Jack Alexander who tweaked and EQ’d the site to help make it sound even better.”
John Barleycorn North replaced a two-story antique store that was completely gutted and outfitted with new furnishings, audio and a 72-screen video system, including five video walls. According to Pickett, “part of the décor includes a glass roof that’s about 50 feet long and 20 feet wide and because they’re located in downtown Chicago, you can look up and see nothing but skyscrapers all around you. It’s a very impressive venue.”
