There’s only one way to have a party or nightclub be even more exclusive. And that’s by building one of your own—inside your home.
Everyone knows about home cinema, but ‘home nightclubs’ are an emerging trend picking up speed. These spaces are multi-purpose: a bar area, perhaps with a pool table or other tabletop games, comfortable lounge-style seating, a connection point for DJ equipment or a mixing console for live performances, and most importantly, a dancefloor. Sometimes the spaces are indoor, outdoor, or a little of both.
As AV solutions are becoming more mature and easier to use, consumers now have the opportunity to bring the party back home and replicate the same audio quality they would get at the hottest nightclub, day club, or massive EDM festival.
While home theaters, elaborate bars, and indoor-outdoor lounge areas have become common in luxury homes, in-home nightclubs have been harder to replicate due to the professional audio requirements. Creating a space with luxury decor and lighting is a lot easier than finding sound systems that can rival the world’s renowned clubs.
L-Acoustics Creations has various options for building the perfect club sound right inside any home. The Ibiza 2.0 sound system comprises six Kara II speakers and four compact SB18 subwoofers, an innovative system used in major festivals and concerts worldwide by top-flight globally renowned DJs such as David Guetta and Steven Aoki. A sound system strong enough to support a home nightclub that wants to rock the house or get people grooving to pulse-thumping electro beats.
Ibiza 2.0, named in honor of the White Island, can deliver up to 24,000 W power and festival level SPL (sound pressure level). Ibiza 2.0 is part of the L-Acoustics Creations Archipel range (French for archipelago), which also features Fiji 2.1 and 5.1, Hawaii 2.1 and 5.1, Tahiti 2.1, and Tonga 2.1 and 7.1.
L-Acoustics Managing Director of Creative Technologies Guillaume Le Nost talks about why a pro audio manufacturer decided to get involved with high-end at-home sound systems. “It made sense. Interest in the best home sound systems is increasing, and L-Acoustics Creations is uniquely positioned to explore and fulfill that interest. We have invested three decades of professional audio experience in creating packages that transform music content into an experience that satisfies the most discerning music lover. When designing Archipel, we wanted a best of both worlds combination of professional audio and high-end sound.”
And to quote one integrator, “There’s a trend of homeowners booking big name DJs and having small intimate parties at home where they can misbehave as much as they like.”
Nick Fichte, Global Business Director, L-Acoustics Creations, talks about why the Archipel range is perfect for the at-home nightclub. “Instead of focusing on watts and frequency response, we focus on delivering the L-Acoustics sonic signature-the benchmark of the live music world at a particular listening position. L-Acoustics is known for its natural, powerful, and realistic sound reproduction in premium pro audio. These sound systems deliver the same levels of performance that a mixing engineer would have at the mixing desk at venues with full concert-like dynamics.”
