Vichai directs the sound at WooBar
THAILAND: The W Koh Samui Retreat recently called in Vichai Trading 1983 to design a new audio system for its WooBar venue. The hotel required a solution that offered more targeted audio inside the bar, as guests were complaining that sound was spilling into their rooms during DJ sets and when BGM was played. This led to the installation of a single Renkus-Heinz IC Live beam steering line array cabinet.
‘Music is playing in the WooBar from 2pm to midnight, so the potential to disturb guests sitting below was obviously quite substantial,’ said Patiyuth Gludnim from Vichai Trading. The Vichai Trading team had recently solved a similar problem at a nearby museum deploying an IC Live system and was able to confidently specify it in the hotel bar.
‘The project was recently completed and the WooBar has since been used to celebrate a number of special events,’ Mr Gludnim said. ‘The response to the IC Live solution has been extremely positive. It is providing the directive audio that was required to allow the WooBar visitors to carry on enjoying the music – and the villa guests to enjoy their peace.’
