After enthralling Mumbai’s nightlife scene with outlets in the city’s happening Kalaghoda area and the bustling suburb of Bandra, 145 has brought its unique brand of fun, frolic, entertainment and unparalleled music experience to the city’s party central – Kamala Mills. And what comes as a surprise to none, the venue has already asserted itself as a premier party destination – creating waves among the youth of all ages with its signature spread of delectable FnB including some of the most mouth-watering savouries and delectable desserts and shakes in town. The brand’s USP, however, still remains the same – it’s unmatched music experience.
Delivering a melange of genres that ranges from the latest in commercial to hip hop to EDM and everything else in between – the experience is heightened several fold thanks to the adoption of an audio system par-excellence, which once again comprises a carefully selected amalgam of products from the iconic Roger Drego signature series.
Designed and integrated by the brand’s in-house team of experts, the loudspeaker setup at 145 The Mill has been tailored to deliver consistent high-quality coverage throughout the venue, with multiple numbers of the ever-efficient RD15 loudspeakers covering the main-dining, bar and dance-floor areas. The team here have deployed multiple numbers QX8 mkII loudspeakers from VAL Audio as fills, along with multiple numbers of the ES1.8 subwoofers from KV2 Audio, which have been installed under the bar counter to maximize low-frequency impact. That apart, the area which comprises the VIP section and Private Dining Room has been integrated with a compact yet powerful system consisting of multiple numbers of the RD10 loudspeakers coupled with RD12WC subwoofers, with the DJ booth sporting a pair of RD12M loudspeakers as the monitoring solution. The entire loudspeaker system is powered through RD4.14 power amplifiers along with further active control and amplification derived through KV2 Audio’s EPAK2500R modular system; with dB-Mark XCA480 DSP rounding off the signal processing and loudspeaker management solution.
The senior management at RISA Hospitality – the company that owns/promotes brand 145, assert they’re absolute satisfaction with the system at 145 The Mill, as they share, “The Mill is absolutely a livewire of a venue, and it’s almost always full with patrons. Weekends are jam-packed, and that’s because people love to come here and party. A great deal of this success is because of the music we play, and people are able to enjoy the music so much because of the amazing sound system that we have here. We’ve worked with Roger and his team earlier at both our venues in Kalaghoda as well as Bandra, and the systems at those respective outlets were absolutely top-notch. So while we were finalizing the details for The Mill, we had no doubt whatsoever that we’d be partnering with Roger to sort the sound requirement here. And our decision was absolutely spot-on – the system sounds absolutely fabulous – it provides a great deal of SPL (sound pressure level) with even more room to drive, for whenever the need arises; and the quality of sound does justice to every genre of music played here. Everyone loves it – our regular patrons and also a number of DJs who have performed here!”
