INSTALLATION OF THE MONTH – JUNE

Congratulations to Andy and the team at PJ HiFi for this month's winning project.

image1.jpg

This family lounge uses an SL Multi Soundbar, in mono configuration for use as a dedicated centre channel, and SL Diablos on their dedicated stand to allow positioning on the cabinet. SL Targets are used for the rear channels, and recessed into the wall. 

image4.jpg

All these speakers are colour matched to a Dulux paint reference. Additionally, SL Architect 2-1s are used overhead, with an Impact 2 subwoofer completing this superb Dolby Atmos 5.1.2 system

The dedicated stand for the SL Target and SL Diablo allows for elegant placement on cabinetry or sideboards, where installation on wall is neither practical nor desirable.

Artcoustic speakers are used throughout in this stunning Dolby Atmos 5.1.2 system, with Spitfire 6-3s used for the LCR, SL Targets for the side speakers, and Architect SL 2-1s overhead.

Mirfield4585.jpg

A single Control 2 subwoofer is used behind the screen for LFE. The system delivers superb value for money, with a great picture and sound for movies and sporting events in this fun sociable space.

With a cinema system, table football, pool table along with a very well stocked bar and stunning wine store, this is a wonderful space to spend with friends and family.

Artcoustic_Control-2-Sub_GREY.jpg

Control 2 Subwoofer

We always recommend that the subwoofer(s) in any system have a higher output capability that the speakers used for LCR. In this case, the Spitfire 6-3 can play up to 115db. The extra headroom of the Control 2 sub, playing 121db maximum output, ensures the system is very well balanced. We recommend aiming for 6-10db extra headroom on the subwoofer above the LCR.

The 6-3 configuration can play the accepted compromise of 102db in this system at 4.5m, so was the perfect choice for this room.

Congratulations to Ben and the team at Platinum AV for another awesome private cinema.

DSC_5931 copy.jpg

Artcoustic speakers are used throughout in this amazing Dolby Atmos 7.2.4 system, with Spitfire 16-8s used for the LCR, 2 x Performance PS4 subwoofers, SL 4-2s for the side and rears, and Architect SL 4-2s overhead. The result is a technically excellent system, exceeding industry specification guidelines, to deliver an incredibly cinematic experience.

Platinum AV (2).jpg

Platinum AV worked closely with the design team at Artcoustic, alongside Atlantik AV, to ensure every part of the room worked together. The Screen Excellence screen and Cineca fabric wall treatment ensured that both the picture and sound were incredible.

Performance PS4

We always recommend that the subwoofer(s) in any system have a higher output capability that the speakers used for LCR. In this case, the Spitfire 16-8 can play up to 124db. The extra headroom of the 2 x PS4s, playing over 130db maximum output, ensures that the subwoofers can always deliver the full impact, however demanding the scene.

Spitfire 16-8

The 16-8 configuration can play the target 105db output for reference quality cinemas at nearly 6.5m distance, as so was the perfect choice for this room. Partnered with the PS4s, dynamic range is incredible and effortless.

THIS RESTAURANT TRULY IS A WONDER - ARTCOUSTIC AT THE TIP OF NORWAY.

'Under' – the latest project by acclaimed architectural firm Snøhetta, is a unique culinary experience semi-submerged beneath the icy waters of the North Atlantic on the southern tip of Norway. 

Image by: Inger Marie Grini

Guests are invited to dine five and a half meters below the surface where a panoramic view of the ocean floor sets the dramatic backdrop. Artcoustic, together with Norwegian partner Level Group, has created a bespoke soundscape, setting the ambience for Europe's first underwater restaurant.

In Norwegian, the name “under” has a dual meaning of "below" and "wonder", and this breath-taking restaurant truly lives up to its name. Half-sunken into the sea, the building’s 34-meter long, monolithic form breaks the surface of the water, resting directly on the seabed.

As a metaphor for the journey of descent when entering the restaurant, the colour of the textile-clad interior appears darker and more intense, the deeper guests venture beneath the waters’ surface.

The bespoke textiles stretched over custom-made Artcoustic speakers and acoustic panels, reference the colours of a sunset dropping into the ocean. The subtle elegance of the finely woven ceiling panels and the tailored Artcoustic installation lend a serene ambience to the venue.

From the entrance, the ceiling’s neutral colour deepens into a sunset pink, intense coral, sea green, finally culminating in a midnight blue, as guests arrive at the dining room.

At the seabed, in the 40-person dining room, lies the panoramic eye of the building. The eleven-meter-wide and 3.4-meter-tall horizontal window offers a visual gateway to the sea connecting guests to the wildlife which lays beyond.

 
Under’ has been a fascinating project to follow and we would like to extend a thank you to the amazing team at Level Group for a job well done and of course the owners of Under for choosing Artcoustic. Last but not least, congratulations to Snöhetta and the Under team for creating such an architectural gem.

This beautiful installation features a Dolby Atmos 5.2.2 system, with SL 8-4s left and right of the TV, and an SL Multi Soundbar for the centre channel (in mono configuration), SL 4-2s for the surround speakers, and 2 x Impact 1 subwoofers for LFE. Architect SL 4-2s are used for the overhead speaker to complete this Atmos system.

Well done guys, great work!

Making it a multi purpose family room...

The client was keen to keep the room feeling like a family room, not as a dedicated cinema. The room is next to the open plan kitchen, so it was important to maintain the feeling that this was still part of the main social part of the home. As such, a TV was required for every day watching, with a drop down screen coming down for those special family movie nights.

New Wave AV 6.jpg
New Wave AV 13.jpg

Colour matching...

Farrow & Ball 'Hague Blue' is the perfect tone for the front wall, feeling warm and cosy as well as very contemporary and fresh. Farrow & Ball 'Plummett' is used on the skirting boards along the side and back walls, working perfectly with the chosen wallpaper. All the Artcoustic speakers were colour matched to the respective colours, and look superb.

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 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.

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.

C-2-Stereo_Soundbar_SL_GREY.jpg

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.

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.

CREATIVE THINKING = HIGH PERFORMANCE CINEMA

ARTCOUSTIC INSTALLATION OF THE MONTH - MAY 2018

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.
