Burnsville, Minnesota (March, 2015): In the tourism paradise of the Caribbean, an exciting club scene is the perfect evening counterpoint to fun in the sun by day. Trinidad-based Streamline Systems has developed a reputation for designing great-sounding, visually unique spaces throughout the region, most recently with Club Next on their home island.
“This is the third night club we’ve done for Princess International Group,” notes Mike Pereira, Streamline’s Field Director. “They were so happy with the sound at our Club Next installation in Suriname, we knew we could rely on the same EV loudspeaker systems and adapt them to this new and different space.”
Club Next Trinidad is notable for its circular bar surrounding an elevated performance stage in the center of the room. “It’s primarily a DJ club, but with the ability to go live when needed,” explains Pereira. “To avoid feedback, we aimed the main speakers outward from above the bar, then set up a separate zone of speakers for the stage, which can be used as monitors.”
With a constant stream of commercial installations in nightclubs, restaurants and casinos and in Central and Sound America, Streamline Systems has come to rely on Electro-Voice as its preferred loudspeaker brand. “We believe in the sound quality, love the reliability and we get great factory support,” explains Pereira. “EV has the right speaker and dispersion for any situation. They deliver all the output you can ask for, and they have so much reserve power running at 8 ohms that they are lasting forever in these installations. As an integrator, I really love that.”
