Harman and Intellitech Systems take part in a Detroit Revival


Bistro 82, Royal Oak, Detroit has been completely remodelled and renovated, the 2-story establishment offers superlative French cuisine in its restaurant while its Sabrage ultra lounge is a chic addition to the area’s nightclub scene.

Bistro’s clean, contemporary design is accented by an open, spacious layout with splashes of colour and plenty of natural lighting, with an audio system featuring HARMAN’s JBL, Crown and BSS Audio components.

“This was a complete ground-up remodeling project, which gave us the freedom to perfectly tailor the audio installation to the first floor Bistro 82 restaurant and second floor nightclub,” said Chadi Shaya, owner of Detroit systems integrator Intellitech Systems. 

Bistro 82’s main and VIP areas are served by 14 JBL Control 65P/T full-range pendant speakers, mounted 10 feet above the floor using a suspension cable system.  Additional first-floor speakers include six JBL ASB6112 single-12-inch subwoofers and five JBL AC16 2-way dual-8-inch speakers that are horizontally wall mounted. The speakers are powered by four Crown CDi 4000 amplifiers.

The Sabrage lounge system is designed to deliver high-SPL audio – over 40,000 watts worth of peak power. Energy on the main dance floor area is fuelled by six JBL AM7212/26 high-power 2-way loudspeakers, chosen for their clear, full-range, high-impact sound and compact design. The AM7212/26 loudspeakers are grouped to provide concentrated sound to the dance floor while not overpowering the rest of the nightclub.

The team at Intellitech Systems invested over 200 hours of design and engineering into this project, using AutoCAD to lay out all the loudspeakers and subwoofers and EASE  acoustic modelling software to ensure optimum audio quality. Due to building architecture, there were some challenges  - “On both floors, one entire wall consists of all windows,” noted Chandi.

“I have to point out that the level of support we received from HARMAN Professional and the quality of their products helped make this project successful,” Chandi emphasised. 

“We feel this is a breakthrough for the city of Detroit,” Chandi concluded. “It will definitely set a new trend for future bistros, bars and nightclubs.”
