Anaheim, CA (March 10, 2017)—Located not far from the Disneyland Resort, the Rumba Room Live is a zippy new nightclub with a 900-person capacity and plenty going on inside to keep that many people more than occupied. With music being a key ingredient to that mix, Props AV of Beaumont, CA, designed and installed the site’s audio systems with Event, Artec, and Action Series loudspeakers from DAS Audio.
Michael Betancourt, the firm’s general manager and system designer, explained, “The Rumba Room Live is a very upscale venue, with just over 10,000 square feet of space. They have a combination of both live bands and DJs, and the music types range from pop/rock to Latin-themed. In addition to the stage area, the club is divided into eight additional zones—all outfitted with loudspeakers to ensure the music is clearly heard throughout the entire property.”
Suspended over the stage area, Betancourt and his crew flew a total of 10 DAS Event 208A powered 3-way line array enclosures, with five elements each for the left and right hangs. For low frequency support, there are four Event 218A powered subwoofers, which reside under the stage. For stage monitor purposes, the setup includes eight DAS Action-12A powered loudspeakers as well as an Action-15A powered enclosure. Additionally, the setup provides an additional two Action-12A enclosures that serve as the DJ’s monitor setup.
There are eight additional zones—which are outfitted with 14 DAS Artec 508 2-way, passive loudspeakers. These zones include the lobby, six VIP areas, the bar, and a walkway area. Power amplification for these loudspeakers is provided by five DAS Audio D Series amplifiers. Rounding out the setup, Betancourt and his team utilized two DAS Audio DSP-4080 stereo / mono DSP units for loudspeaker management.
With the Rumba Room Live installation completed, Betancourt reflected on the project, “There are always plenty of obstacles that occur on projects of this nature, but when the entire job—audio, lighting, and video—came to life, it was better than I had hoped for. DAS helped out every step of the way. It’s been a very positive experience for everyone involved.”
