Powersoft and EWA installation offers ‘everything and more’ for Pretoria restaurant

Powersoft distributor Surgesound has carried out its first installation project for a Pretoria restaurant franchise.

The company used a Powersoft Ottocanali amplifier to power eight EAW SMS5 loudspeakers divided into four areas inside the main restaurant area.

The operators were seeking a system that could accommodate standard playback of background music and televised sport, but equally be able to accommodate a low-key DJ setup or one-man-band plug-in. Surgesound responded by supplying three auxiliary plug-in points.

Surgesound’s product manager Ruan Joubert said: “From a system design perspective we needed high fidelity audio and control throughout the different areas of the restaurant. The Powersoft Ottocanali DSP was the ultimate all-in-one solution for the job.”

The Ottocanali 4K4 DSP+D offers a wide range of system control and monitoring functions as well as sound shaping options, a total of 4,000W output power at 4 ohm over 8 channels for lo-Z or distributed line systems. With two redundant Dante digital streams, the Ottocanali 4K4 DSP+D will fit any venue as ‘stand-alone’ unit, making it ideal for multi-zone applications such as this.

In Pretoria, in addition to the SMS5, including two 10” loudspeakers installed in the mezzanine/smoking area, three EAW SMS4 loudspeakers are installed in two outside areas. An FBT MMZ8004s Zone Control unit provides the client with an uncomplicated signal management solution.

Joubert added: “We are always impressed with the combination of EAW and Powersoft. Even in an unassuming project like a restaurant, the sound quality and performance is everything we expected and more. The client was also impressed with the coverage of the different areas and the overall sound quality.”
