Date Restaurant & Designers’ Corner celebrates opening with L-Acoustics
TURKEY: Elit Light/Sound Technologies has installed an L-Acoustics system into the recently opened Date Restaurant & Designers’ Corner, a new multi-functional venue in Istanbul offering a mixture of entertainment, cuisine and fashion.
The venue’s first floor serves as a bar and restaurant area whilst the second is used to host fashion and design events. The client put a lot of thought into choosing an appropriate sound system for the space due to the fact that the building dates from 1873 and has been carefully renovated. As such, the audio solution needed to meet the needs of a range of activities, including dining, dancing, hosting fashion and pop-up shows, and clubbing.
Elit Light/Sound Technologies installed a number of 8XTi speakers from the L-Acoustics coaxial range together with an SB18i subwoofer. An LA4 amplified controller is used to control, filter and power the system, which was carefully installed around the venue in order to provide clarity and precision throughout the venue.
‘We decided to go with the L-Acoustics coaxial sound system because it delivers excellent sound in a small package,’ said Date Restaurant & Designers’ Corner manager Kaan Ozcan. ‘It is ideal for the space and is versatile. it ideal for our needs.’
Fashion collections designed especially for Date were exhibited for the opening celebration, followed by a fashion show choreographed by Turkish fashion designer Uğurkan Erez.
