One of Italy’s largest nightclubs, the Odissea Fun City Dance Club is home to seven different musical environments. Marking its 25th anniversary, everyone in attendance – from staff and management to performers and patrons – was treated to a sound experience never heard before from a loudspeaker sound system designed by Clair Brothers.

Odissea Fun CityOwners of the club decided their previous system had served its purpose well, but that the time had come to upgrade. Prase Media Technologies, Clair Brothers Italian distributor, was asked to suggest an upgrade. Emanuele ‘Lele’ Luongo, product manager at Prase, along with his expert cohorts, Ivan Omiciuolo and Matteo Barbaro, whom supported the project in all its phases, recommended the new PA.

‘The main challenge in this room, was to achieve homogeneity in the distribution of low frequencies while also minimizing the reflections, within the entire audio range, caused by metal sets and mirrors on the side walls of the dancefloor,’ explains Luongo. ‘We also worked to curb the incidence of medium-high range in the bar areas.’

To overcome these acoustical issues, the PA system that was installed consists of two Clair Brothers kiTCurve12 clusters (four cabinets each) and eight CS218 subwoofers.

‘The subwoofers follow the perimeter of the stage, with two subs located in the centre, positioned as an inverted stack to help reduce the impact of low frequencies in the console area.’

In addition to using the kiTCurve12 as the main system, there is also a pair of the exact same kiTCurve12s being used as DJ monitors to allow the DJ to hear the exact timbre that the audience hears. The stunning result is an LR system with controlled dispersion teamed with a horizontal sub array which allows for a higher SPL than the club’s previous system was able to deliver.

‘The combination of the compact dimensions of the cabinets with the high performance of Lake processing on all the PLM and amplification channels, made it easy for us to meet all the requirements of this installation,’ says Luongo. ‘Once again, Clair Brothers speakers come through with flying colours. Odissea Fun City Dance Club is set up for great sound for a long time to come. There’s no doubt in my mind that everyone who listens will notice a huge improvement. It may even make them dance.’
