Poseidon Sound System: Commanding The Sound Waves
Poseidon is our custom-built bespoke sound system, commanding the sound waves ;)
Designed as an audiophile PA system, these are optimised for both selectors and live performances, featuring a fast impulse response.
Super low distortion and high efficiency means no degrading over long periods. Drivers from Eighteen Sounds and B&C, the subs are18“and the horn-led tops are 15″ along with a compression driver.
We chose horn-led for a number of reasons, one of the main reasons is for a super wide stereo image and dispersion, where we focus on more people in the venue being in the sweet spot for our ‘democratic sound’
A better phase coherence
When all sound sources originate from the same point, the sound waves maintain better phase alignment, which can improve the clarity and detail of the sound, especially at the crossover point between the speakers and the driver.
A single horn can control the dispersion of sound waves from both the 15-inch speakers and the compression driver, resulting in more consistent coverage across the frequency range. This enhances the ‘sweet spot’ of the stereo image, providing a better listening experience across a wider area.
With all sound sources originating from the same point, there’s less chance for sound waves to interfere with each other, which can sometimes happen when separate speakers are used.
A single, unified horn offers a much cleaner look and uses less material and less space, also making it easier to transport.
The horn can help manage the load on the speakers, reducing distortion and allowing for higher volume levels without compromising sound quality and keeping consistent clarity (think being able to hear someone talk when it’s loud)
They are not astetically finsihed yet, we sitll ahve to decorate and hang off the ceiling.
