AV Upgrades for Joshua Brooks and new Versions club

Following a change of ownership in 2016, Joshua Brooks underwent an extensive refurbishment and overall venue refresh - Neuron were pleased to win the tender for a full venue refit in the upstairs bar, removing tired old cabinets and installing a full new AV system featuring AUDAC high-end ceiling speakers, new DSP and zone level and EQ controls via bespoke wall panels and iPad remote, multi-source 4-way CAT6 HDMI video switching facilities for use with a range of new commercial displays and updated HD projection systems, and a full service and refresh of the DJ equipment used within the venue after many years of heavy use.

After achieving great results in the newly refreshed bar area, we were invited back by the in-house management and new promotional teams to tackle a rebranding and major adjustment to the legendary club space in the basement, which already featured a Void sound system installed by ourselves back in 2014.

To coincide with the newly named Versions' debut event, we relocated and rehung the Air Motion v2 speakers, taking the time to retune and realign the speakers accordingly to ensure that all components were performing at their absolute best. DJ monitoring was refurbished, and new DSP settings created with improved limiting, ensuring that the artists are able to mix with ease and clarity. Alongside this, an entirely new, separately adjustable Void AirTen v2 PA system in matching gloss white, along with a Venu 215 subwoofer, was installed near the bar, to accommodate the much-expanded dancefloor and allow all of the attendees to experience full-range, high impact audio.

Featuring this fully upgraded sound and lighting system, new amplification and updated tuning and DSP processing, improved DJ facilities and the latest Pioneer equipment, a fully refurbished bar area on both floors, and most importantly more room for dancing, Versions is fully set to do justice to it's forward-thinking, progressive and exciting new calendar of bookings.
