The Palace now benefits from new NEXO installation
Fresh from their success at the The Albion, Hastings' most successful new gastro pub/live venue, Adam Daly and Partners once again asked Orbital's Eric Simpson to design a state of the art, zoned and distributed sound system for their latest venue The Palace.
The Palace was another run down pub venue in Hastings which underwent a refurbishment on a scale never seen on the seafront in Hastings before. Specialist plasterers and woodworkers bought back to life the art deco interior to reflect its glorious past but also to incorporate the modern future that lay ahead for the venue.
With the main room functioning as a bar/restaurant and live venue The Palace's room at the back also doubles as a cinema whilst sometimes also showcasing local talent with its multi-purpose sound system enabling all this to happen seamlessly.
Orbital's Eric Simpson was bought in at an early stage to start the planning of the system to incorporate all that the owners wanted to achieve at the venue. Centred around a Yamaha MTX3 Matrix Mixer/ Signal Processor with associated remote controls, including Yamahas ProVisionaire Touch control software, the system was easily able to cope with the multitude of demands thrown at it and enabled an easy transformation of the spaces from one scenario to another.
Nexo speakers were employed all round, PS10's and LS600 subs make up the 'DJ' system in the main room with a matrix of ID24's covering all the other bar areas out front. In the rear room a pair of PS8's on moveable booms enable the cinema room to transform into a live venue effortlessly with ID24 surround speakers and IDS210 subs re enforcing the system.
All speakers were driven either by Nexo NXAMP's or a combination of amplifiers and Nexo DTD processors ensuring that optimum sound quality and protection was achieved.
