Located on the sandstone shores of the Rocks is the Italian Village, a three-level, three-room restaurant and function centre catering to up to 100 seated and 250 cocktail. The position affords 180-degree views of Sydney Harbour, the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. Impact AV was employed to design and install a premium quality sound system with a distributed speaker design and placement, multi-room control on every level and wireless microphone use on all levels.“The owners wanted the flexibility of running different zones or combining them to make one zone,” explained Silas Creel, Managing Director of Impact AV. “You can have the same sound throughout the entire venue or you can have different sounds in various areas all being controlled either on one level or each with individual control.” Silas specified 64 JBL Control 25AV speakers plus six JBL Control 24CTM speakers, all powered by seven Crown CDI 1000 amplifiers. The system includes a BSS BLU-80 signal processor, a BLU-32 I/O expanders, plus BLU-8 simple-to-use controllers and BLU-10 programmable controllers. Italian Village is part of the Dockside Group.
