One of Mexico’s leading sound, light and AV automation specialists, Oncue has designed and installed more than a hundred NEXO systems in bars, restaurants, hotels, superyachts and even homes around the country.
With offices in Cabo San Lucas and Mexico City, the company is headquartered in Cancún and has established a reputation among local hospitality venue operators for providing systems that meet and exceed what is typically a demanding set of requirements.
“It’s a party atmosphere in Cancún and (nearby) Tulum, so sound systems are required to handle much more than simply background music” says Oncue Director General Héctor Ortega Valles. “The NEXO systems we install are typically operating at over 100dB for up to 15 hours a day.”
Oncue’s latest installation is at the BRASS Modern Grill House, part of the Fish Fritanga Group, where select cuts of meat are lovingly prepared and cooked over hot coals for a discerning clientele, and where a NEXO ID and ePS Series system for background music is also required to amplify a live band with piano, bass, drums and singers, every Friday and Saturday night.
“Consistent coverage is always the key to a successful installation, and we use NEXO NS-1 software every day to design and predict system performance” comments Héctor. “At BRASS we installed 6 x ePS8s in the restaurant, 4 x ID24s on the terrace, and additional ID24s in a VIP area, with LF extension from 3 x eLS400 and 3 x eLS600 subs.
“I am very passionate about sound quality and the ID24 really is an incredible loudspeaker with a clear and elegant sound. When our customers first see it, they often don’t believe that it’s large enough to do the job, but they are always amazed when they hear it. And it’s also very durable. We have many installations, indoors and outdoors, operating year after year with no problems.”
Following the installation at BRASS, NEXO system designs for two further Fish Fritanga Group venues including a new beach bar are already underway.
“I love the NEXO brand” says Héctor in conclusion. “If I was a tattoo kind of guy, I’d probably have a NEXO tattoo!”
