The 1912 blocks of the trendy Nanjing, China are draped in both history and modern extravagance. The year 1912 is known as one of the most bustling and prosperous periods in the history of Nanjing and the district wears nostalgia in its architecture and layout. Built around the Presidential Palace, the commercial buildings still carry characteristics of the Republic of China over a century later.
Club Enzo is the latest addition to the popular strip and this new 9500ft² (875 sq.m²) club is considered the flagship venue of the Nanjing Trendsetter Entertainment Management Co., Ltd brand. The club was designed with high-calibre dance music in mind. Adamson products were chosen and installed as a distributed system.
The large installation features Adamson products exclusively: there are 16 x M212 and 42 x Point 15-P (passive) hanging above the dance floors and lounge area with at least two direct sound points on every seat in the building. The low end extension is covered by 32 flown Point 215 subs, with 6 extremely powerful Adamson T21 subs placed strategically, blasting out 6000 watts of bass. The goal was to ensure they could push the limits, with a max SPL level at a whopping 130dB all the while maintaining a ±3dB uniformity throughout the venue. Performance director WU is impressed: “Now Club Enzo has most dynamic sound in the Nanjing District.”
The design and installation was independently designed by Real Music Acoustic & Lighting Technology Co. Ltd who is the exclusive distributor for Adamson Products in China, Hong Kong and Macao. They chose to pair the Adamson spakers with the CAMCO Vortex series of amplifiers and the APEX Intelli-X248 audio processor. Real Music’s Wang Zhen explains, “There are 24 DSP channels in three APEX Intelli-X248, with M212’s divided into two groups which take four channels, the 42 Point 15-P’s take 12 channels, Point 215 Sub take the remaining 8 channels.”
This is Real Music’s second permanent installation of Adamson products in a nightclub after the recent transformation of the popular TNT Club in Xi’an, China. Nanjing Trendsetter Entertainment Management chose to adopt the Adamson system in TNT Club as well as the Enzo Club after a shootout with the leading French and British brands. The owner of this chain of Chinese clubs will be fitting out their remaining 6 clubs with similar installations in the near future.
The upgrade also included large LED Video screens in forms of pillars around the dance floor, which can project both, video and patterns; dazzling LED wash lights, moving lights and a telescopic dance stage. The club also received a new mixing console, digital DJ mixers and brand new microphones.
