Elsa's on the Park
Located in the square that includes St. John’s Cathedral in downtown Milwaukee, Elsa’s is a popular gathering place for attendees of the Cathedral Park Jazz Fest, held every Thursday throughout the summer.
With that clientele, the trendy bar and restaurant needed an out-of-the-ordinary background music system, and so they asked Lewis Sound & Video to design it.
Lewis designed and installed:
- A distributed audio system with JBL full-range loudspeakers and subwoofers mounted in the ceiling.
- Peavey XFrame DSP
- QSC amplifiers.
- Three control panels: one for volume presets and source selection (satellite, CD, etc.); two for local volume control.
- Volume presets set up for changing conditions in the bar (various size crowds, lunch and dinner ambiance, etc.). Each preset includes appropriate equalization adjustments.
- Separately adjustable volumes for the bar, dining areas and restrooms. Sound to dining areas and restrooms is delayed so that it stays in sync with the louder-playing bar area.
