Troxy Invests in Harman Audio Upgrade

Iconic London venue Troxy has completed the first stage in an audio installation which will see the new state of the art JBL VTX-A12 line-array system installed for the first time in a UK venue.

The art-deco designed venue will work with Harman Professional Solutions and UK distribution partner, Sound Technology, to undertake a major investment to its technical infrastructure to service the production requirements of its increasing number of live music events; high profile awards ceremonies, corporate events and private parties.

The system has been specified in collaboration with integration partner, SSE Audio Group, who brings a wealth of experience in infrastructure to the table and will help make the system work for the venue functionally as well as sonically. It will operate on a versatile digital network and offers incoming productions easy access and universal patching into the system for easy load-ins and quick production turn around for touring shows.

The centrepiece of the integrated Harman Professional Solutions high-grade sound reinforcement system is the new JBL VTX A12 dual 12” line-array loudspeaker.

Tom Sutton-Roberts, General Manager at Troxy explained: “This is a major investment for the Troxy team and we have worked closely with all the parties involved to specify a true state of the art system for the promoters that work with us. We selected JBL based on both audience and tour management feedback and we’re already having a great response to the line array system, which can only get better once the full installation is in place.”

A full JBL monitor and fills package will be provided as part of the upgrade, which will include JBL M22 stage monitors, VTX F-series point-source speakers and the new VTX-A8 dual 8” line-array speaker, while Troxy’s foyer will also feature a new JBL system to relay sound for receptions and red carpet events.

The 1930s vintage venue has been completely sound-modelled as part of the upgrade by the SSE team and will be debuted in full at Beach House and The Dresden Dolls in October 2018.
