Bose RoomMatch Loudspeakers for Austin’s Cedar Street Courtyard

In the weeks leading up to the opening of the Cedar Street Courtyard music venue in Austin, Texas, the venue was already drawing noise concerns.

Due to its close proximity to residences and other establishments, Cedar Street Courtyard was looking to minimise its contribution to the noise pollution problem.

Nashville-based consultant Steve Durr was called in to recommend a sound system whose sonic quality would keep it competitive with the city’s many other music venues, while at the same time keeping the sound highly controlled and away from reflective surfaces.
Big House Sound was selected to install the system, which consisted of four Bose RoomMatch loudspeakers, one RoomMatch RM7020 and RM7040 array module per side, each chosen specifically for the Cedar Street Courtyard’s dimensions, along with four Bose MB24 WR (weather-resistant) Modular Bass loudspeakers, all powered by three PowerMatch PM8500 amplifiers, all delivering 500 watts to each of their eight channels.

“The results were amazing,” observed Zach Richards, Director of Installation at Big House Sound. “The situation that this venue, this neighborhood, and this city found itself in is what made the Bose system a good solution. There are lots of new areas popping up where you now find clubs and homes in what was once a warehouse district, so there have to be ways to let them coexist.

"The low-frequency control approach that Bose uses, along with the choice of 20 very specific coverage patterns in the RoomMatch line, lets us tailor the sound system to the venue very precisely. That means we can control the sound very effectively, and not just in the upper frequencies but well down into the mid-low frequency ranges.

"The Bose RoomMatch systems are incredible tools for the sound control and noise mitigation issues that are becoming increasingly common in cities, and especially in areas where you can have music outdoors 365 days a year, like Austin.”
