Best? Klipsch speaker setup for a Bar lounge

Recommended Posts

Interesting concept for a music bar!  Keep me in the loop as your plans take shape,

I built 36 nightclub systems 1977-80 in Minneapolis and the upper midwest as Dr. Disco & Associates

We flew ALTEC 421/802/32B sealed wedges over the dance floor, triamped w/EVM-18B's tuned to 23Hz - WOW!

Distributed 8" ceiling speakers in the bar, restaurant, restrooms 4-zoned to control levels.  Seamless integration.

My stepfather managed a hotel in the early 80's and Ray Kimber (yes, that Ray Kimber) did the audio install.  I was a kid in a candy store.  They had a Klipsch folded horn woofer in the corner of the dance floor and girls used to dance on them.

Let's assume that a Bar lounge was being built, what Klipsch speaker setup would be "ideal" for patrons to listen to a wide variety of music. mostly from a streamer and vinyl.

Assumption being the room itself has a relatively rectangular shape and about 40' x 60' dimensions.

 

You would want to give the artillery a shout.  @Trey Cannon

Reach out to prosystemdesigh@Klipsch.com and we can answer that question. Most the time we use the IC product. IC-650T and the KDA amps.

If this is a lounge/pub type place, several of the RP 600m wall mounted would be fine. I have seen the larger model indoor/outdoor models used in a couple pubs and stores in Edmonton. People want background music not their faces blasted off.

Lots of people in lounges need their faces blasted off.

Perhaps, but we take our dollars elsewhere. There is a time and a place for a dance-hall and and a time and place for a public house. Occasionally the two meet, and that is at 8:pm on a Saturday night where upon a PA system is utilized.
