Philadelphia Hotspot Hits the Mark with Community

FOH Staff • News • June 30, 2008

PHILADELPHIA – Downtown Philadelphia's latest hotspot is G, an upscale lounge and restaurant located in the city's fashionable Rittenhouse Square neighborhood. Billed as "technologically injected pure bliss," Owner Mark Marek's latest venue features multi-zoned audio, video and lighting systems, creating a flexible environment that can function as several neighboring zones, or can be grouped together to create one or several larger party and performance areas.

"Our ultimate objective was to create a flexible space that could be manipulated to create a multitude of different scenarios," explains Adam Freemer, systems engineer for Broomall, Pennsylvania-based Audio Video Systems Group (AVSG).

"We can create up to 15 individual zones, each of which can access any of several audio and video feeds."  Audio for the club's main area is based around Community Professional's VERIS and iBOX Series systems, with eight VERIS 8 wall-mounted eight inch systems and 12 flown VERIS 1296 12-inch, two-way boxes, as well as four flown IHP-1596 15-inch cabinets.

The Mogul Room, an ultra-private area fashioned out of a former vault, is outfitted with two more VERIS 8 wall-mounted systems and another pair of SBS-12 subs, creating a warm, subdued and very exclusive atmosphere. The two dance floor areas are powered by Thrive amplifiers from SBS Audio, making G one of the first clubs in the world to feature the amps.

"The iBOX and VERIS systems really sound great right out of the box," Freemer says. "We didn't have to do a whole lot in terms of tuning or tweaking the system, and the VERIS boxes are really simple to set up and install."
