Mercury Sound & Lighting has installed audio visual elements for hundreds of bars and clubs in Michigan. We were asked to create a system for iHookah that would provide a laid back atmosphere for people to relax and be entertained. The system was to combine an audio system and video screens throughout the lounge. The owner of iHookah wanted to create a situation where his customers could sit anywhere in the lounge and be able to see a tv screen and hear audio no matter what seating option they chose. Mercury was up for the challenge for the club audio visual installation.
Installing a sound system at a hookah lounge is an important consideration for creating an enjoyable atmosphere for guests. There are several factors to consider when installing a sound system in a hookah lounge.
First, it is important to choose a sound system that is suitable for the size and layout of the lounge. The sound system should be able to provide sufficient volume and coverage for the entire space, without causing excess noise or disturbance to neighbors. A professional audio engineer or contractor can help you determine the appropriate size and placement of speakers and other equipment.
Second, it is important to consider the type of music and entertainment that will be played at the hookah lounge. Different music genres may require different sound system setups, such as a more powerful system for live bands or a more subtle system for background music. It is also important to consider the quality of the sound system, as poor sound quality can ruin the listening experience for guests.
Third, it is important to consider the aesthetics of the sound system. The speakers and other equipment should be visually appealing and blend in with the decor of the hookah lounge. In addition, the cables and wiring should be hidden or neatly organized to maintain a clean and visually appealing space.
Fourth, it is important to consider the maintenance and upkeep of the sound system. The sound system should be regularly inspected and maintained to ensure that it is in good working order. It is also important to have a plan in place for addressing any issues or repairs that may arise.
Overall, installing a sound system at a hookah lounge requires careful planning and consideration. By taking the time to choose the right equipment and ensure that it is installed and maintained properly, you can create an enjoyable and immersive atmosphere for your guests.
Mercury installed a total of 8 JBL Control 28 Speakers throughout the space. It was powered by Crown CDi amplifiers and a DBX zone controller was used for processing. The system was split off into four separate zones so that different volumes and inputs could be controlled in different areas of the lounge.
iHookah has a full surround wall of windows. This posed for a challenging situation with flat screen TVs. They could not be mounted on the wall (since made of glass) so Mercury came up with an alternate option. A total of 13 43″ TVs were installed around the space. Mercury used double mounted ceiling mounts to hang the display’s from the ceiling in a configuration that would put them back to back allowing for viewing on both sides of the TV. Another 3 71″ televisions were mounted over the bar area for a massive television wall.
