New Multi-Purpose Warsaw Venue Kitted Out With Martin Audio BlacklineX

SLA Warsaw, a new restaurant/club situated in the Polish capital, has installed a Martin Audio BlacklineX series system to handle a wide range of audio demands.

The BlacklineX system was supplied by Martin Audio’s Polish distributor, Phono Media, and installed by High Shine, run by Jakub Ołdak, with whom the supplier haa worked closely for many years. The entire AV project was overseen by system designer, Michał Malczyński.

Based in the heart of the city, SLA Warsaw combines a restaurant, nightclub (with dancefloor) and cocktail bar. As such, a versatile audio system was required as part of a sophisticated AV solution designed to cater for several different scenarios.

“This is an extremely interesting space, with a design which transfers guests from the centre of the city into the heart of the jungle,” said Phono Media. “The most important requirement from the investor was that the sound system had to provide the best quality possible and perform several functions: hi-fi quality background music during the daytime and after dark a full-on disco sound with sufficient bass. This needed to be distributed evenly between all rooms—the main space in front of the bar and the dancefloor, with all communication between the rooms.”

To achieve this, Malczyński specified a total of four Blackline X10 and 12 Blackline X8, respectively reinforced with an SX212 subwoofer and a pair of SX110 subs. Infills are provided by six Martin Audio ADORN ACP-55T.

The project was not without its challenges. As a new-build, with a strong architectural element, extra care had to be considered with the placement of the system in order to complement the aesthetic of the building.

The venue opened its doors to the public on June 12-13.
