Client Requirement: To specify and install outside terrace sound system for new Barbecue and Bar Area of Restaurant Bar & Grill taking into account sound dispersion and environmental issues.

Restaunt Bar & Grill Tunbridge Wells expansion plans included converting their outside dining and relaxing are into a new 120 seat BBQ, Bar and Live Music entertainment area with a retractable roof.

Kazbar Systems was commissioned to provide the specification and installation of the sound system to provide a system which can perform for DJ use and live music entertainment. 

Outside Terrace

To create a pleasant sound with excellent sound dispersion taking into account proximity to seating and aesthetics, the speaker system also needed to cope with outside environmental issues too due to this being an outside area.

Speaker placement was key to allow for an equal sound delivery to all dining and bar areas. Also taking into account a sound which would enhance the atmosphere and not clash with conversation.

We decided on Bose DS40SE’s positioned in key areas from the dining areas to the Bar and communal space around the DJ Booth. Also included were four sub bass units hidden away but providing a warm and full sound both and low volumes and higher volumes too during DJ sets.


The sound installation for the Outside Terrace had to be integrated and connected to the existing internal restaurant Cloud Zone system. The Outside Terrace has its own feeds for both the Bose DS40SE’s and the Sub Bass units from the Cloud Mixer feeding to its dedicated amplification.

The DJ area has its own dedicated input to the sound system which allows for the Restaurant to feed into the music being played from the Outside Terrace, be it DJ or live acoustic music. The outside DJ Booth also has its own volume control so that sound volume can be adjusted accordingly depending on the event or atmosphere.
