DXS provides the bass in Womb

JAPAN: Since opening in 2000, Tokyo-based nightclub Womb has gained a level of notoriety, featuring in the Brad Pitt movie Babel, and has constantly updated its sound systems. The most recent upgrade took place in the first floor Womb Lounge as the 70 sq-m was installed with Yamaha DSR loudspeakers and DXS18 subwoofers.

‘We were already using DSR112 and DSR115 full-range speakers in the Middle Lounge on the third level, where the VVIP Terrace is currently located,’ explained DJ and Womb sound director, Hiromi Ohnishi. ‘We knew that our customers and guest artists were attracted by the quality of our sound, reinforced by the use of subwoofers, so naturally that played a role in our decision. We were satisfied with the sound and safety of the DSR series, but at the time the renewal was being planned the DXS18 had not been released.

‘We were trying to decide whether to purchase an entirely new system or use our existing full-range DSR speakers with different subwoofers when we received news that a new subwoofer had been released, and an invitation to hear it in action,’ he continued. ‘The timing was perfect, so we went to the listening event and were so impressed with the system’s power and impact with club music that we finalized our purchase decision on the spot.’

The installation has seen DSR115 cabinets placed in each of the lounge’s four corners, while DXS18 subwoofers are located each side of the DJ booth. ‘We haven’t even driven the system at full power yet, and it has plenty of power for the space,’ Mr Ohnishi added. ‘We are totally satisfied with the midrange clarity of the DSR units and the low-end support provided by the DXS subwoofers. It is an excellent match for the room.’
