When restaurant and live music venue Let’s Chill Music & Restaurant in Nonthaburi, Thailand was looking to update its 300-seat open-air performance area and surrounding outdoor seating area, the owner reached out to local integrator Mahajek Development Co Ltd to see what options were available for the space.
Opened in August 2020, the restaurant offers fine dining and top-notch live entertainment in one place. In addition to serving an eclectic range of food and beverages, the restaurant also hosts an open-air service and performance area as well as a private karaoke zone. Mahajak Development Co. Ltd reported that the venue’s management wanted an aesthetically pleasing, sophisticated audio system that could deliver impactful sound with full coverage throughout the space and accommodate a variety of events.
With these requests in mind, the installation team selected JBL Professional, Crown, Soundcraft, and dbx solutions to create a versatile, modern audio system.
The stage primarily features JBL VTX A8 line array loudspeakers with patented Differential Drive woofers, Slip Stream ports and Radiation Boundary Integrators for wide coverage and pristine audio. For reinforced stability and easy installation, the team used VTX A8 AF extension bars to mount the speakers to the stage’s roof.
Additionally, JBL VTX B18 subwoofers provide impactful, distortion-free bass response thanks to the built-in JBL 2288 transducer. JBL PRX815W/230D full-range speakers serving as floor monitors provide clear sound and personalized settings for the performers onstage.
