Small Restaurant/Lounge

Intimate Seating with Lower Ceiling

This is typically a small restaurant, lounge or club with a smaller performance space usually in a corner or off to the side.
While the musicians may be isolated in a corner (to maximize table space), patrons are able to enjoy their meal and have a balanced musical experience without the “hot spots” common to many portable systems brought in just for the performance.
 
In this example, a monaural pair of medium-format horizontally mounted I SERIES IP6-1122s addresses the space fairly evenly. The larger waveguide in these models helps ensure that further seating areas are reached as well as closer seats. A central subwoofer is on the floor for bass support. If extended coverage is needed, IC600 compact models are good choices.
 
For a distributed foreground or background music listening experience, the compact IC600 or V SERIES models offer professional fidelity and system longevity for maximum return on investment to the establishment. Don't forget the subwoofers! They are an integral part of the audio system, delivering the low frequency component of the full musical spectrum expected by today’s listeners.

Left/Right Coverage:
Two (2) IP6/8-1122 horizontally mounted from the ceiling at the front of the performance area.
      OR
Two (2) IP8-0002 mounted from the ceiling at the front of the performance area.

Subwoofers:
The images show a single subwoofer centrally placed on the floor in front of the performance space. If floor space is not available a single driver IS6/8-112 or IS6/8-115 subwoofer can be mounted behind the IP8-0002 using BalancePoint™ Fly Rails.

Suggested Model Families:
I SERIES (IP600/800, IS600/800) and V SERIES (V2-6, V2-26, V2-8, V2-28, V2-32, V2-35, V2-212S or VLF208LV)

Technical Considerations
 

Amplified Loudspeaker Controllers

Community recommends our series of Amplified Loudspeaker Controllers (ALC) for all Community loudspeaker applications, like those shown in this application guide. ALCs provide all of the signal routing, zone switching, DSP processing, protective limiting, remote monitoring, and amplification functions needed between a mixer and the loudspeakers in virtually any Community Professional Loudspeakers application. Standard Ethernet communication protocols allow for fast system design, system control, and remote system monitoring. Analog and Dante® inputs are included in each model, for quick and easy integration into any new or existing system. Community-authored loudspeaker presets include equalization, high pass filters, and multi-stage limiters tailored to each model, ensuring consistent sound quality and full loudspeaker protection in every application.

ALC Application Note

Total available power can be safely distributed asymmetrically across the outputs in any combination of low impedance and 70V/100V loads.  Power delivered from each output is individually managed; total shared power per ALC is monitored and limited independently by the power supply.

ALC-404D

4 inputs (Analog and/or Dante®)

4 channels of amplification and DSP processing

Each channel provides up to 400W of power into low impedance or 70V/100V loads, stable to 2Ω

In bridged mode, each pair of channels provides up to 800W into 8Ω, 4Ω, or 70V/100V loads

Total shared power not to exceed 1200W

Perfect for Small R SERIES, V SERIES, Compact I SERIES, W SERIES (W2), and ENT200 models, and zoned C SERIES & D SERIES applications

ALC-1604D

4 inputs (Analog and/or Dante®)

4 channels of amplification and DSP processing

Each channel provides up to 1600W of power into low impedance or 70V/100V loads, stable to 2Ω

In bridged mode, each pair of channels provides up to 3200W into 4Ω, or 70V/100V loads

Total shared power not to exceed 4800W

Perfect match for Larger R SERIES & W SERIES, I SERIES, IV6 and ENT-FR

ALC-3202D

2 inputs (Analog and/or Dante®)

2 channels of amplification and DSP processing

Each channel provides up to 3200W of power into low impedance or 70V/100V loads

In bridged mode, each pair of channels provides up to 6400W into 4Ω, or 70V/100V loads

Total shared power not to exceed 6400W

Perfect for R6-MAX, I SERIES Subwoofers and larger IV6 Arrays
