LiveWire Bar

Treasury Casino and Hotel, Queen St Mall, Brisbane

LiveWire Bar is back, with the help of Jbn Sound Ceiling.

The bar, in the heart of the Treasury Casino, has been an integral part of the entertainment offered there for many years. It was seen as a great destination to enjoy a drink and listen to a band any night of the week.

However, having live bands performing in the middle of the Casino can create problems such as loud music blasting through into the main gaming areas, disturbing punters at electronic gaming machines and gaming tables. Bass sound could also travel up into the Casino’s hotel rooms disrupting guests sleeping, hence noise complaints.

So management decided to replace the LiveWire bar band area with a new gaming area. The effect was the loss of some patrons. The solution was to bring the LiveWire bar back and actively seek ways to limit the noise issues associated with live bands and music blasting through the gaming areas and the exclusive accommodation above.

Classic waterfront restaurant Wildfire’s owner Tonči Farac decided it was time to give the fine establishment an audio makeover calling in the experts at Compact Monitor Systems.

“The client also wanted to expand the audio to several zones and include areas that haven’t previously been covered whilst redoing those that had with a more complete sound system,” explains Bill Richardson, managing director of Compact Monitor Systems.

Compact Monitor Systems completely dismantled the existing audio system and replaced all of the processing with BSS BLU, all amplifiers to Crown Audio and added a wide range of JBL speakers. The venue already had a dozen JBL Control 25AV speakers which were redistributed into areas that were not previously covered.

“The C25s were in perfect shape and ideal for reuse,” commented Bill. “The rest went to the audio retirement home.”

The venue is divided into eight audio zones including main dining area, the private dining room, the mezzanine, the bar, outdoor seating area, front entry area and the bathrooms.
