PJ’s Irish Pub Parramatta is one of Australia’s grandest Irish pubs featuring authentic Irish atmosphere and design, combined with live entertainment, and award winning food and drink.
Whilst combining the old with the new, PJ’s has maintained tradition by keeping its Irish style pub interior but has stayed contemporary through a multimillion dollar refurbishment mid 2012.
Seeking to install an outstanding audio visual system to provide entertainment and attract new customers, PJ’s Irish Pub brought in Xcite Audio Visual on board to supply a comprehensive and quality audio system. Xcite AV turned to Jands for a completely integrated system from the PA through to digital signage and DJ/performance rigs.
Brendon Fava, director of Xcite Audio Visual explains that many of the venue's key areas are serviced magnificently by JBL speakers. JBL Control Contractor Series of installation loudspeakers includes a complete range of surface-mount, in-ceiling and subwoofer models, providing a wide variety of choices to meet any architectural, aesthetic, and system performance requirements.
The outdoor courtyard features ten JBL Control 28 wall mount speakers whilst the first floor outdoor terrace has eight JBL Control 25 wall mount speakers. The restaurant has eight Control 24CT compact in-ceiling speakers, which offer premium performance in background, foreground and music-plus paging sound systems.
A BSS BLU-8 programmable zone controller in the restaurant offers simple control for the staff. JBL Control 28 wall mount speakers also service the function rooms with JBL Control 25 wall mount speakers for private functions. The toilets feature JBL 8124 in-ceiling speakers, which offer high-fidelity performance in an easy to install package.
Brendon comments that they use JBL solutions as standard in their projects. The JBL Control 28 speakers are great for outdoors and their wall mount bracket is easy to install. Additionally, a couple of BSS BLU-100 digital signal processors and a BSS BLU-BOB2 DSP Output Expander have also been installed at the pub. The Soundweb London BLU-100 represents a premium, open-architecture solution in the form of a highly flexible, cost-effective and scalable package.
