Guangzhou, China (November 11, 2014)—The VCAT superclub in Guangzhou, China recently got a new Void Acoustics audio system installed in its facility by Most Technical China. The 500-capacity VCAT boasts an Incubus Air Array main room setup supplemented with Nexus series loudspeakers.
“When the Catwalk group initially bought the space for VCAT, they asked us to do a demo at the original site with a system of Void Nexus 6 tops and S218 subs, and we pretty much blew the socks off their original PA using about a quarter of the kit,” says Most Technical founder Dave Parry.
With factory support from Void designers Rog Mogale and Alex Skan, the audio design was created by MTC business partner David Chow with Dave Parry, both of whom worked closely with the interior designer to gain enough space for all the speakers, especially the subs.
In contrast to Western tastes, the norm for Chinese clubs is to have no dance floor, so the main room demanded coverage from a full-on PA system as well as subs and stereo pairs for every seat, giving every booth seat essentially a full dance floor sonic experience. Different models of loudspeakers were chosen to highlight each individual area. A custom red finish was applied to all the speakers to make them stand out from the surrounding furniture and video walls.
The main room system at VCAT comprises two Incubus Air Arrays at the front with four Stasys X Air subs underneath; as rear fills there are two Nexus 6s above a further two S218s subwoofers; the DJ also has a pair of Air Motions as monitors. Around the tables there are also 12 Mycro X subs built in under the seating providing additional bass support.
The Bar/VIP area contains two Tri Motions with two S218s under them; and two Cyclone 10s cover the small bar while the seating area is awash with eight Axsys 12 and eight Mycro Xs. The rear of the room is covered by 12 Airtens with six Mycro X in the seating and two L2 subs as fills. A total of 36 Powersoft amplifiers of various models power the audio system, with six Void Livedrives controlling it.
