JBL Delivers Heroic Solution For Singapore Saloon, Hero's

Live music establishment, Hero's, recently upgraded to an audio solution featuring JBL and Crown to power sound for its regular live music performances. Located on Circular Road behind Boat Quay, the 240mvenue distinguishes itself as an Old West-style saloon bar, featuring brick and stone wall fixtures which adorn longhorn skulls, saddles and other Wild West paraphernalia.

Suspended from the 4.5m-high ceiling, the front of house components consist of four JBL A6 dual 6-inch arrays per side, supplemented in the lower frequencies down to 25Hz (–10dB) by two floor-standing VTX B28 dual 18-inch subwoofers at the front of the stage. Additional JBL AC16 cabinets serve as side fill. Incorporating DSP settings for JBL speaker tunings and network control in either high- and low-impedance applications, Crown iTech DN3500DE and DriveCore 4|600DA four-channel amplifiers supply the power to the speaker outputs.

To minimise disruption and ensure Hero’s continued to function as normal, E&E conducted a rapid installation, before calibration and system tuning. “The changeover was a breeze,” said Bower. “To ensure a seamless transition, our in-house sound engineer was involved during each step of the upgrade. Without a doubt, the JBL audio system has raised the quality level for our patrons and we look forward to cementing our position as one of the best live music venues out there.”

With double-glazed glass maintaining a neighbourly audio level, Hero’s is entering a new era in the competitive Boat Quay entertainment district. “Most of our regulars have commented on the powerful sound quality and the musicians are really enjoying the clarity of the system,” concluded Bower. “For now, we have raised the bar in terms of audio quality with this investment.”
