PSSO on board!

June 17th, 2016 Posted in General, PSSO, References Tags: , ,

In the old port of Würzburg, one of the most popular clubs has let go its anchor – literally:

„The boat“ is a former pleasure boat. It opened its doors for the first time on April 4th, 1996 in the Frankonian wine city. Since then, Würzburg’s party people have been celebrating each Thursday, Friday and Saturday night until the early morning hours, dancing to charts, house music, hip hop, the 80s and 90s.BOOT_2

On the turntables, regionally known DJs spin the discs. Even some star DJs have already been giving a guest performance on one of the 3 floors.

The dance floor of the „middle deck“ is filled with sound by four Prime-10 CX coaxial speakers and one K-182 subwoofer by PSSO. In the „machine room“, two PSSO Sub-2180 provide a good basic and on the sun deck, speakers of the brand Omnitronic are used.

We met general manager Nikolaus Zimmermann for a short interview. Being the boss, he has special demands for the sound equipment installed in his club.

What were the considerations you had before buying a sound system for the three floors in your club? What was important for you?

Nikolaus Zimmermann: Good sound is the most important thing in a club. That’s why we set store by good sound. With the PSSO top parts, clean mids and highs are realized. The K-182 as well as the SUB-2180 guarantee for powerful, clean bass.

It’s also an advantage for a club like us that we could buy amplifiers, controllers and other parts of our PA from one supplier. This way, a good interaction between the components is made sure – nothing cumbers problem-free party nights then.BOOT_4

 

Why did you choose products of PSSO? Which speakers and amplifiers did you install?

Nikolaus Zimmermann: We decided to use PSSO, as the speakers are of good quality at a fair price. Especially the high-quality components of the K- and Prime-series convinced us. At the moment, we have two PSSO Sub-2180 as subwoofers in the machine room and one PSSO K-182 on the middle deck. Highs and mids are provided by four PSSO Prime 10-CX coaxial speakers. Plus, we installed several PSSO amplifiers. One HP-2400 and several HSP-1000.

Some clubs don’t pay much attention to good sound nowadays, as they say that most people wouldn’t care. What do you think about that as a club owner yourself?

Nikolaus Zimmermann: The PA system is the heart of each club. Of course, other technical components like the light system is also important. But in the end, what really matters is the sound. That’s why we decided to use high-quality components, to provide the best possible sound experience for our guests. Besides that, I personally think that people do care about good sound and appreciate it.

When can our readers listen to the good sound of the PSSO system at your club the next time?

Nikolaus Zimmermann: We’re open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Special opening times and all important info can also be found on our website www.das-boot.com as well as on our Facebook page and in our app.

Thanks a lot for this interview. Party people of Würzburg, have fun on the boat!

On August, 31st 2014 the fifth „MOBI“ adventure day took place at the Fördehalle Flensburg. More than 1000 participants came to break the national Zumba record. The sound came from a CLA from PSSO.

The event’s patron, the minister of the interior from Schleswig-Holstein Andreas Breitner, was more than satisfied by the sound: „We have never had such a good sound in this hall before.“

Overview on subwoofer types

subwoofer

The human ear is mainly adapted to the frequency range where speech is transmitted. Frequencies below this frequency range are less noted although the same physical level is present. In practice, this effect requires higher bass power e. g. by more powerful subwoofers, more subs or a mixture of both. As speakers generally have a low efficiency comparable to a halogen lamp, manufacturers try to achieve the highest efficiency by optimized housing shapes. But not every housing shape is suitable for every event location and audience. The following article should help to find the suitable subwoofer type.

1. Introduction

The loudspeaker celebrates its 150th anniversary based on the invention of the telephone by Philipp Reis in the year 1861. Already in the year 1878, the electro-dynamic loudspeaker was patented. This kind of loudspeaker is still built into most speaker-systems today.

If such a loudspeaker is operated without housing, an acoustic short-circuit is produced because the sound waves produced by both membrane sides are eliminated by each other. The volume is clearly reduced, especially the lower frequencies. A pragmatic use is not possible like this so that diverse types of loudspeaker housings for different applications were developed.
