NEXO STM M28 has made its debut appearance in the great city of Shanghai, in a new entertainment venue that has become one of the main hotspots for both local and foreign visitors.
VShow, a five-year-old KTV brand, has recently made the leap into live music, commissioning the V Livehouse in the heart of Shanghai’s “club central” on Huaihai Dong Lu, another sign that the Chinese nightclub and bar entertainment market is getting back on its feet. At V Livehouse, the band is the central attraction. The performance stage is embraced by high-end interior décor, superior food and beverage service, and top-class management.
For this environment, a high-specification front-of-house PA was essential. The STM M28 ‘omni’ cabinet was a perfect fit for the venue, offering high SPL from small unobtrusive cabinets. 3x M28s per side were installed, fitted with 120° flanges because of the relatively short throw required. Below the STM clusters, 4x NEXO LS18 cabinets provided the subbass. A couple of NEXO PS10-R2s provide frontfill coverage, and outer edges of the room are covered by a total of 4x PS15-R2s.
On stage, 2x PS10-R2s are used as stage infill monitors, installed in the ceiling in front of the stage and facing down towards it at an angle. Drummers have their own NEXO PS10-R2/LS600 monitor system.
All systems are driven by NEXO NXAMP4x4s and NXAMP4x1 powered TDControllers. A Yamaha QL5 digital mixing console is at front-of-house.
NEXO Shanghai Dealer, Shanghai Haoyun Audio-Visual Equipments Co., Ltd. supplied the system, together with Top Plot Int’l. Ltd., NEXO’s China Distributor and NEXO’s sales and technical team to provide all support.
