More details from VUE Audiotechnik (

Dara AV recently completed an installation of 23 VUE Audiotechnik i-Class loudspeakers into New Jersey’s Gabriella’s Italian Steakhouse. Founded more than 10 years ago by owner Jak Daragjati as JD Systems, Dara AV provides sound and video system engineering, design consultations, design/build services, sales, rental, and audiovisual systems installation covering the New York, New Jersey area and more.

Jak Daragjati headed up the installation and described the audio needs and challenges for this restaurant. “Gabriella’s consists of a main dining hall and bar where the open ceiling height is about 12 ft. The goal was to provide a distributed audio system that would provide a great vibe with great coverage, yet not overpower lunch and dinner conversations.”

Jak designed a distributed system that consists of eighteen i-2×4.5 full-range loudspeakers. The i-2×4.5 was designed for AV contractors that sought a higher performance loudspeaker. The MTM driver layout allows for various inconspicuous placements, making them ideal for the ceiling install at Gabriella’s. To ensure solid low frequencies, five iS-12 compact subwoofers were also installed.

Jak reported after the installation “We chose VUE Audio’s i-Class due to their construction quality, and sound which is far superior to anything in that size and price range. We know we have a very pleased client when they’ve already called us in for the next restaurant they plan to open.”
