Kazbar systems was engaged to install the audio system for the live performance area in the Grand Ballroom at Upper Froyle Park Country Estate, including sound limiting to prohibit unwanted sound leakage to sensitive surrounding areas.
Froyle Park Country Estate
This is a grand and beautiful country house hotel on the Hampshire and Surrey border, specialising in weddings and events. All good wedding and event venues needs a brilliant sound system, not only for conveying live performance to the audience, but also to create a soothing and good atmosphere throughout the night.
Speaker Installation and Sound Limiting for Froyle Park Country Estate
The venue recently completed a massive renovation of all estate buildings, some of which are now in use as guest- and private accommodation.
Froyle Park Country Estate contacted Kazbar Systems to facilitate the speaker installation for their Grand Ballroom catering, primarily used for hosting wedding parties and formal events.
Due to the surrounding guest- and private accommodations, we had to take into consideration external sound leakage, as the doors of the ballroom would be opened on summer evenings.
The initial suggestion was to place the internal speakers pointing away from the external doors towards the performance stage to deflect sound away. However, this would prove problematic to any live performers using microphones due to feedback.
The final solution was to install two full range passive speaker cabinets, mounted to the ceiling away from the stage, pointing directly towards the dance floor.
In addition, we installed a sound measuring device, with an onstage traffic light warning system. This system ranges from Green to Red when the volume is approaching potential disruptive sound leakage levels.
We conducted external sound leakage tests to ensure the volume was well within the legal external noise levels.
Sound Equipment & Cable Installation
As part of the complete audio installation for Froyle Park Country Estate, we needed to provide an effective and simple-to-operate audio solution, which could be easily accessed by performers both live & DJ.
We installed a Mackie DL1608 Mixer which operates via an iPad having a quickly accessible and simple to use visual interface.
The mixer is wired directly to a stagebox allowing for connectivity of the microphones and DJ’s too. We provided a secure rack, mounted to the wall which includes a lockable rackdraw and
also houses the Yamaha P5000S Amplifier powering the PA Speakers.
