L-Acoustics gets lucky at Seven

AUTHOR: Inavate

Seven, a new club at the La Cigale Hotel in Doha has taken receipt of an L-Acoustics system, supplied by Venutech. The 1,000-capactiy oval-shaped club’s sound system is based around a stereo configuration in front of the DJ booth.

This comprises two hangs of four dV-DOSC cabinets focused on the dance floor and four hangs of three ARCS medium format line source cabinets to cover the table areas around the dance floor. A further system of six distributed 12XT coaxial boxes cover a pillared area.

The club also features a sub bass setup of six SB28 subs in a horizontal ARCS/SUB configuration, to deal with the very wide shape of the venue.

Personal monitoring systems for the DJ, VJ and LJ consist of 12XT coaxials, and the entire system is driven by LA4 and LA8 amplified controllers, monitored by L-Acoustics’ Network Manager remote control software.

“The venue’s architectural shape is unusual and the design of the system was a big challenge,” says Venuetech’s technical director Elie Khairallah. “The result is phenomenal and the sound quality, along with SPL levels that system can provide, is excellent. All of the gear was installed in a very short time and setup of the system was accomplished in just two days.”

The club opened in late September with a set by French DJ David Vendetta.
