Twelve Club Miami
Twelve Miami keeps the music pulsating with D.A.S. Audio
Twelve Miami is a club that focuses on promoting live concerts every weekend in addition to hosting various electronic nights and other cultural events. Since its opening in February 2016, notable artists that have appeared at the club include Chino y Nacho, Farruko, El Gran Combo, El Binomio de Oro, Caramelos de Cianuro, and many others. To ensure the best audio reproduction for a wide range of events, club management wanted a versatile sound reinforcement system, which they found with components from the Event, Artec, and Vantec Series catalogs of Valencia, Spain-based D.A.S. Audio.
PA Sound and Solutions Corporation of Medley, FL, a company dedicated to the distribution and sale of audio and lighting equipment for export as well as sales throughout the American domestic market, coordinated the transaction for the newly opened Twelve Miami. Leandro Arguello, the company’s Sales Manager, discussed the project and his decision to deploy loudspeaker systems from D.A.S. Audio.
“Since the club regularly hosts a lot of live acts and uses DJ’s as well, they required a versatile system capable of performing well for both types of acts. The sound system needed to be capable of handling both live music and music playback accurately, have good speech intelligibility, and provide even dispersion throughout the room. The combination of the D.A.S. Event Series 210A line arrays and 218A subwoofers—augmented by the company’s Artec and Vantec point source loudspeaker enclosures—worked out really well. The system covers the entire area evenly with great low end and clarity.”
The D.A.S. loudspeaker setup at Twelve Miami includes a total of eight Event 210A active line array enclosures: flown four elements each for the left and right main hangs. These loudspeakers are augmented by four D.A.S. Event 218A powered subwoofers—two enclosures each for the left and right sides of the stage, positioned on the floor. To ensure event coverage at the very front of the stage area, there are four D.A.S. Artec 508A powered loudspeaker enclosures placed across the front of the stage.
For the performers, the on-stage monitoring setup includes four D.A.S. Vantec 15A powered 2-way sidefill enclosures as well as four Event M210A active stage monitors. Loudspeaker management is provided by a D.A.S. DSP-4080 processor. System cabling is handled by products from Accenta USA while an Avid Venue SC48 console handles mixing chores.
