One Third club destination in a former locomotive depot, another of the NOA’s Arc Group’s premium entertainment ventures and is third in the chain. The 2,500 capacity dance venue, specialising in Hard style, has been equipped with Martin Audio’s award-winning MLA Multicellular Loudspeaker Array.
With the One Third identity built on quality and reflecting a ‘gold standard’ in clubbing, Live Legends was asked onboard, to bring their extensive skills, knowledge and visions from the world of live events. After sampling several competitive sound systems, it was decided that MLA would be “the perfect weapon” for this application and that Martin Audio overall was the best loudspeaker partner for all the subsidiary spaces.
All the rooms were equipped with Martin Audio components, the main dance area comprising 12 MLA (hangs of six elements per side) and four WSX subs. Elsewhere they specified eight W8LMI mini line arrays, eight Blackline X12+, eight Blackline FX15, six Blackline3 B18 and 18 x B218 subs — all powered by six Martin Audio iK42 amplifiers.
The system has proved to be a big hit, and speaking of the impact created, a spokesman for the operators said it delivers “the best live show ever.”
It’s intended that One Third Hangzhou will be another landmark for the city which has been awarded the 2022 Asian Games, and is an emerging technology hub.
