Bose sound system lifts Lighterman pub

Tateside was responsible for fitting the venue

The Lighterman, a new pub, dining room and bar in London’s Kings Cross has installed a Bose sound system, with FreeSpace 3 cube speakers offering music over all three floors.

The system was installed by Tateside and offers managers on each of the floors overall control of the source music and volume. There are four iPads, each loaded with the Bose ControlSpace Remote app.

At The Lighterman, a ControlSpace ESP-1240 processor delivers audio via ESPLink to two PowerMatch amplifiers to provide a 12 zone music experience via FreeSpace 3 cubes and subs on each floor. All zones can be controlled using the iPad app, and there is a fixed CC-16 wall mounted zone controller on each floor.

Tateside were able to use CSR Builder to personalise the app for The Lighterman, creating a custom layout, and inserting images and branding. The app can be used to adjust volume levels and mute the system, select music source, set tone EQ and recall parameter sets.

Tim King, group ICT manager for Open House London, which owns The Lighterman, said: “(Tateside) recommended that we go ahead with a Bose ControlSpace set-up and utilise the functions on the iPad app for everyday control. This app has revolutionised how the music setup works for us. It allows us to control the overall ambience and customer experience with ease and on the fly, quickly adjusting the setup according to the vibe in the venue.”
