Installation of the Month December

Cre8tive Rooms, in the UK, win our final Installation Of The Month for 2018 with this amazing project.


This cinema is part of a larger installation in one of the latest iconic features of London's skyline, in the St. George development at One Blackfriars.

Working with a typically tight and inflexible budget that projects like this have, Cre8tive Rooms insisted upon the important parameters such as dynamic range being met. The result far exceeds the client's expectations, and is an amazing place for residents to relax and enjoy a movie.

Great work by the team at Cre8tive Rooms.

Cre8tive Rooms


The room is designed to be cosy, welcoming and comfortable. Cre8tive Rooms worked alongside the developer and interior designers to keep it as technically correct as possible, whilst acknowledging that the design and aesthetics of the room was all important to the client.


Spitfire 12-6 with 2 x Control 2 subwoofers, together with Spitfire 8-4s for surround and Architect 4-2 overhead make up this awesome Dolby Atmos 7.2.4 system.  


The finished result looks and sounds amazing. The team started with a completely blank room, and working with the design team, created a superb room for the residents at One Blackfriars


Naturally, next to the cinema and wine room, is an amazing golf simulator. This was also designed and installed by Cre8tive Rooms, and completes this superb entertainment area.


Installation of the Month November

Congratulations to the team at Rayleigh HiFi, UK, for November's incredible Installation Of The Month.


Working closely with Artcoustic, and following site visits, demonstrations at our Chelmsford showroom, technical designs and 3D renders, the end result is breathtaking. 

This is one of the most impressive cinema rooms we've seen, and we congratulate the whole team at Rayleigh HiFi.

Amazing work, well done! 


The 150" 2.40:1 ratio acoustically transparent screen covers the Spitfire 16-8 LCR and PS6 subwoofer.


The system is a Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 configuration, and delivers an incredibly immersive experience. All the speakers are, crucially, timbre matched throughout. Viewing angles, and loudspeaker locations are all carefully calculated to ensure the very best performance possible.


Architect SL 4-2 and SL Diablo make up the surrounds and overheads, with Cineca seating adding a touch of comfort and luxury to the experience. The Siena model is used on the back row, with the Modena on the front row. 


Lots of planning and hard work by the team at Rayleigh HiFi made it possible for this room to come together superbly. Well done to everyone involved, it's one of the finest cinemas rooms we've had the pleasure to work on.


Spitfire 16-8

Artcoustic's modular range enables the correct loudspeakers to be specified based on the correct technical requirements. Dedicated cinemas should always be designed to the industry standards of 105db per speaker in the listening position, with an aim for higher if possible to allow for EQ and room treatment. The Spitfire 16-8 will play 124db and is capable of 108db at a distances over 6m, so delivers plenty of power and headroom here.



Performance PS6 Subwoofer

Serious cinemas have serious subwoofers! The Performance PS6 was chosen here, with 6 x 10" bass units, and weighing over 70kg. We advise having subwoofers that are capable of at least 10db output more than the main speakers, with 136db output, and a frequency response down to 15Hz, this was the perfect complement to the 16-8s.


October's amazing Installation of the Month

Congratulations to Richard at the team at Niche AV in the UK for this beautiful installation.

Niche AV 15.jpg

Artcoustic speakers are used throughout the stunning property, with SL 40-30 4-2s and Impact 1 subwoofer in the open plan kitchen, SL C-2 Soundbars under the TVs, and SL 6-3s with Multi SL Soundbar, Targets and SL Architect 2-1s used for the Media Room's Dolby Atmos system.

Careful planning and thought went into the design of the audio visual systems across this amazing home, and the team from Niche AV exceeded all expectations.

Niche AV 7.jpg

The SL C-2 Soundbar is used as a stereo speaker under the TV, together with an Impact 1 subwoofer - simple, elegant, high quality audio.

Niche AV 13.jpg

Using Artcoustic throughout the property ensures the same quality levels are maintained in each area. The open plan design means that often multiple zones are playing together, and as all Artcoustic speakers are based on the same building blocks, the sound from each is incredibly similar. More powerful models are used for more fun in certain areas.

Niche AV 2.jpg

The Media Room is designed to be a very comfortable and inviting place to settle down for the evening watching the latest box set, movie or sporting event. More powerful Artcoustic speakers are used here to deliver the full dynamic range required, whilst also working perfectly with the room design. 

Niche AV 3.jpg

The bar area, with stunning views out across the gardens, uses a SL C-2 Soundbar underneath the TV, and an Impact 2 subwoofer. When drinks are following and the party starts, this discrete system will play high quality audio at over 100db.


The iconic SL Multi Soundbar is also available in a single source mono or a dual source stereo version, making it ideal for use as a powerful wide dispersion centre channel, or as a high-end stereo setup. It is designed to be run from a zone of Crestron, Control 4, Savant, AMX, Elan G etc. for high quality multi-room performance with the same discrete aesthetics as the SL Multi Soundbar.

Luxavo and Cormac take Installation of the Month this August

Artcoustic Cinema, by Tech Fit, Ireland (1).jpg

Congratulations to Cormac and the team at Luxavo in Ireland for this superb cinema installation.

Artcoustic speakers are used throughout in this amazing Dolby Atmos 5.2.4 system, with Spitfire 16-8s used for the LCR, 2 x Control 3 subwoofers, SL4-2 for the side and Architect SL 4-2s overhead. 

Artcoustic's design team worked closely with Luxavo to ensure the cinema was technically accurate. The screen size carefully chosen for the viewing distance and projector brightness, with the correct loudspeakers locations and dynamic range. This system will play full reference 105db (+3db headroom) easily. The result is a system that is effortless, accurate and dynamic. And great fun!

Well done guys, great work.

Though Luxavo are based in Ireland, and the client is Irish too, the project was actually in Geneva, Switzerland. Managing a project of this scale from distance brings it's own challenges, but Luxavo planned and executed it perfectly. 

The beautiful room design feels very relaxed and comfortable, with Tom Dixon tables, a large L shaped Poliform sofa and the contemporary bar at the back - complete with a walk in wine store and draft Guinness on tap, naturally.

Stunning penthouse apartment in the heart of Copenhagen



Congratulations to the team at Sensa A/S, Denmark, for this wonderful project.
Situated in the heart of Copenhagen, this penthouse was originally two apartments, but was joined together in the conversion to create a horseshoe-shaped living space.


Artcoustic in-ceiling SL Architects are installed throughout the property with a total of 16 pieces being featured in the bedrooms and main open-plan living space. Eight zones of audio, all controlled simply via Sonos.




The prestigious Smart Building Awards 2018 was held recently, at a hugely successful gala dinner event at Sandown Park, UK. Following on from the success of winning ‘Best Loudspeaker’ in 2015, Artcoustic were delighted and honoured to be presented with ‘Manufacturer of The Year’ for 2018.


Artcoustic would like to say a special thank you to our supportive installers for being part of this success, including Smartcomm who won ‘Multi Dwelling Unit - Project Of the Year’ and iCubed Home Cinema who won ‘Best Cinema Project’. Both projects featuring Artcoustic Loudspeakers. Congratulations to them both for their excellent work. 


Creative thinking = high performance cinema



Congratulations to Baljinder, Dally and the whole team at iSmart Home Control who are this month's winners of Installation Of The Month! 

Very creative thinking has enabled a superb, high performance cinema to be installed into this formal lounge, disappearing from view when not in use.

The client's brief was a particularly challenging one as they didn't want to see it, but also wanted excellent quality. By using SL Multi Soundbars installed vertically for LCR, and colour matching them to the painted walls, they blend in beautifully. SL TargetsSL Architect 2-1s and Spitfire Control 2 subwoofers built into cabinetry complete this 5.2.4 Atmos system. It delivers all the excitement of a serious home cinema when in use, and almost vanishes during the day.

An acoustically transparent drop down screen completes the magic


The SL Multi Soundbars were colour matched to Farrow & Ball 'Light Blue', and are very discrete installed vertically as left, centre and right speakers.




It is with great pride that we share news of our latest home at the world's most renowned restaurant, NOMA.

Artcoustic was selected alongside some of the design world’s leading players, and  were chosen for their Scandinavian craftsmanship, customisable design and high-quality sound performance. The collective of distinguished brands includes Danish Architecture firm, BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), Interior Design Studio, David Thulstrup and flooring specialists, Dinesen.


Having packed up just over a year ago and left to create their yearly pop-up edition in Mexico, René Redzepi and the Noma team have returned to a brand-new site in Copenhagen.

The main architectural structure, designed by leading global architecture firm, BIG, is made up of seven buildings creating a small village, each area built from a unique material to complement its specific function.


Highly acclaimed interior designer, David Thulstrup, was brought in to add a homely/cool vibe to the interior space, whilst still reflecting NOMA's heritage. The main areas are separated into a lounge/bar area, where Artcoustic speakers are featured, and a dining area with space for up to 40 diners. The kitchen is completely open plan, to enhance the atmosphere and allowing the customers to see their food being prepared, creating a more intimate, homely environment. Artcoustic’s customisable design options allowed the team at David Thulstrup complete design freedom when specifying the speaker colour to match the interior space.



Two of the 40-30 SL 6-3 models feature in the lounge/bar area of the new space, closing the circle of senses and providing a one-of-a-kind ambience.

The 40-30 is an entry to mid level configuration of our high sound pressure level SL Series. It works perfectly for home audio/surround sound systems and commercial installations, where the design and flexible customisation is paramount.


High-end sound, beautiful interior design
