UK - A Void Acoustics sound system has been installed in Mrs Fogg’s Maritime Club & Distillery. Located in the heart of London, Mrs Fogg’s is the sixth venue in the Mr Fogg’s collection, inspired by Aouda, Phileas Fogg’s Indian wife, in Jules Verne’s classic adventure novel, Around The World in 80 Days.
Styled as if aboard a Victorian steamer ship, guests enter the ground floor through the Maritime Club. Sound in this large bar and dining space is powered by six black Void Acoustics Air 8 passive, two-way, eight-inch surface mount loudspeakers and two Venu Bass low frequency enclosures.
The adjoining Rangoon Steamer room boasts luxurious chandeliers, plush dining seating and decorative curtained windows, all built to size to replicate the steamer Phileas and Aouda travelled on. Four white Cyclone 55 dual five-inch, passive, surface mount loudspeakers, together with a Venu Bass, are strategically positioned to create the perfect sound balance, while complementing the exquisite interior décor.
A staircase leads guests below deck, to an authentic bar and distillery. Here, an intimate stage is powered by two Venu X low frequency enclosures, two Air 8, and two black Air Motions. The spherical shape of the Air Motion horns gives a modern-day nod to the Victorian gramophone of Phileas Fogg’s era. Guy Ayres, projects director for Diamond AV explained that they would be well worth the investment to Charlie Gilkes and Duncan Stirling, Inception Group’s founders.
The adjacent Engine room and distillery is equipped with two black Cyclone 55 loudspeakers, expertly positioned to maximise the space, within this fully operational gin distillery and cosy seating area.
Inception Group has an extensive portfolio of high-profile entertainment properties. For Mrs Fogg’s, Diamond AV was briefed by Duncan and Charlie to provide “something that can impress both visually and audibly”. Duncan happily confirms that “the Void Air Motion certainly does that. We needed versatility to accommodate everything from an eight-piece band to DJs and conferences. The quality of sound that Void gives is second to none.”
