Noi is a new high-energy lounge/bar located in Delhi’s most high-end mall, The Chanakya, where an in-house DJ that transform the locale into a nightly hot spot. The client, real estate mogul DLF India, took the project to system integrator Macbee in search of the best-sounding bar in Delhi – with interior designer Rockwell Group USA requiring an absolutely discreet audio system without any acoustic treatment to compromise the interior concept.

NoiAnother challenge was that the seating at the bar and in the courtyard is positioned very close to the walls so any surface installation could cause a poor experience for those close to the speakers rather than in the middle of the areas.

With these requirements, Macbee wanted to take advantage of SPL consistency from a line array set-up even though most bars and clubs in Delhi employ point sources. The only manufacturer able to satisfy the design requirements and meet both technical demands was K-array, with its small footprint systems and Pure Array Technology.

For the bar, a system comprised of four Python-KP102 line arrays, two Thunder-KMT18P subs and four Rumble-KU212 subs were installed and powered by a Kommander-KA84 amplifier. Eight Python-KP102 line arrays, two Thunder-KMT18P subwoofers and four Rumble-KU212 subs powered by a Kommander-KA84 amp were installed in the double-height courtyard. Additionally, four Python-KP52 loudspeakers paired with two Thunder-KMT12P subs powered by a Kommander-KA24 amp now serve the outdoor lounge.

The speakers were placed in the corners and the subs were set behind the seating with two in the ceiling in the courtyard area, so they were completely hidden but yet able to give the low energy required for the weekends when there are around 500-600 people and the bar turns into a nightclub.

‘We were able to achieve a very high seat-to-seat consistency in terms of smooth bass response as well as SPL,’ says Macbee Sound Consultant, Sawan Nichani. ‘The most amazing response from the management was that they were able to sit right next to the speaker and still have a conversation. Not only were we able to just achieve – we exceeded the clients’ and designers’ expectations both in terms of performance and looks using K-array unique audio solutions. This place is now one of the top three places in New Delhi.’
