Large, sprung dance floor. The floor design is based on a network of woven wood and is described as being one of only two floors of its type. The other is at Blackpool Tower Ballroom.

 

The house sound system was designed and built by K-Array, an Italian high end audio solutions outfit. Tops are Dragon KX12's and bass is handled by Thunder KM18p's. Total power output is 3.6 KW. 

 

The house sound system performed well at the last event. It is very powerful and at a rock concert it would be ideal. However, a 100% vinyl soul night requires something with even more power, yet more subtle. After our opening night last month we have embarked on trials to supplement this with another 3.2KW of the highest quality audio equipment at the opposite end of the 200 foot Ballroom. Our plan is to reduce the volume at the front of the hall and balance the sound across the room. We are aiming for a beautiful spread of chest thumping soul across the entire cavernous ballroom. Powerful and inspirational on the dance floor but quiet enough to have a conversation at your table. 

 

Access to Balcony.

 

Bar behind the stage.

 

Upstairs cocktail bar. Due to a misunderstanding, this wasn't open on the opening night. The Town Hall are providing extra staff and we have two bars for this event.

 

Strictly no talc!

 

Sellers stalls.

 

Entry £6. 7.45pm - 1am. No entry after 11pm.

Cheer Ste. Lots about the Sound System - little about what's going to be played through it?..

I prefer the Bigger Venue's and this looks great, but don't want to travel all that way for another night of the same old Party Pensioner tunes.

Sound check today using additional 3.5 k of sound at constant 85db all around Ballroom was huge success.  Records could be heard clearly out in The Street . Emitting from Balcony Doors . 

Victoria Williams Show Some Sign sounded majestic in and out the building .

Bring it on May 25th .

              Audio Hooligan Sound Control

                              Accrington Soul Club

                                   Tuesday 14.05.19.


                     Sound check
             Accrington Town Hall.

The house sound system performed well at the last soul night but it was operating near it's limits. The sound was good at the front of the hall but deteriorated towards the back. 

14.05.19. we trialled an additional 3.2 KW of top quality, state of the art audio equipment at the opposite end of the ballroom.

There was some apprehension in the club regarding some of the finer details beforehand but it was needless worry. The additional 3.2KW just filled it out nicely. 

The combined sound of the two systems perfectly satisfied the requirements of a soul night in a large venue . The clarity was amazing, the bass immense. 

I frequently did a surreptitious manic laugh at the sheer delight of listening to music of that quality with that much power. No bass hum. No mic feedback. Soaring highs, chest thumping lows and a beautiful mid range. Almost an audiophilic dream. I really, really liked it.

There was much more depth, detail and colour to the sound due to the house system not pulling it's tripe out and working at the periphery of its operational parameters as last time. And that bass! This is a massive step forward for the club sound. The power is palpable, the quality undeniable. 
.
The supplementary system was running at 3/4, just right in its comfort zone. It's not quite as powerful as the Italian Dragon system but is much more controllable.

The day's work went to plan and the sound system exceeded expectations. I hope it works as well with a room full of dancers.

I think I've tamed The Dragon!

Many thanks to Blackburn Oldies Soul Club. Accrington Soul Club is indebted for your cooperation, help, assistance and friendship in achieving sonic goals.
