JBL in Canyon Creek Chophouse
"We needed an audio system that was not clearly visible to the patrons, but most definitely could be heard," said Dirk Propfe, partner and vice president of the ET Group. "We also wanted to be able to provide discrete control over the sound in each room, to help create an even more hospitable experience for diners and flexibility for the restaurant."
The ET Group designed and installed a zoned ceiling speaker system, drawing from JBL's Control Contractor Series. ET Group installed 15 JBL Control 227CT ceiling speakers in the dining room, along with six JBL Control 19CS in-ceiling subwoofers. The patio area features six Control 227CT speakers and two Control 19CS subwoofers. ET Group installed an additional four Control 227CT speakers in the restaurant's meeting room, while five Control 24CT Micro ceiling speakers were installed in the washroom and entry way. Two Crown CTs8200 amplifiers power the system, while a dbx ZonePro 1261 enables processing and EQ-ing of each audio zone in the restaurant.
In addition to Canyon Creek, the ET Group has provided high-end audio/video systems for many of the restaurants owned by the SIR Corporation, including other Canyon Creek locations and Jack Astor's Bar and Grill locations, many of which also feature JBL Control Contractor ceiling speakers.
