Iconic London venue Troxy has completed the first stage in an audio installation which will see the new state of the art JBL VTX-A12 line-array system installed for the first time in a UK venue.
The art-deco designed venue will work with HARMAN and UK distribution partner, Sound Technology, to undertake a major investment to its technical infrastructure to service the production requirements of its increasing number of live music events; high profile awards ceremonies, corporate events and private parties.
The system has been specified in collaboration with integration partner, SSE Audio Group, who bring a wealth of experience in infrastructure to the table and will help make the system work for the venue functionally as well as sonically. It will operate on a versatile digital network and offers incoming productions easy access and universal patching into the system for easy load ins and quick production turn around for touring shows.
The centrepiece of the integrated HARMAN high-grade sound reinforcement system is the new JBL VTX A12 dual 12” line-array loudspeaker.
Tom Sutton-Roberts, General Manager at Troxy explains;
“This is a major investment for the Troxy team and we have worked closely with all the parties involved to specify a truly state of the art system for the promoters that work with us. We selected JBL based on both audience and tour management feedback and we’re already having a great response to the line array system, which can only get better once the full installation is in place.”
A full JBL monitor and fills package will be provided as part of the upgrade, which will include JBL M22 stage monitors, VTX F-series point-source speakers and the newVTX-A8 dual 8” line-array speaker, while Troxy’s foyer will also feature a new JBL system to relay sound for receptions and red carpet events.
The 1930s vintage venue has been completely sound modelled as part of the upgrade by the SSE team and will be debuted in full at Beach House and The Dresden Dolls in October.
