Remote Amp Control
Dec 2, 2013 3:42 PM
Patrons of Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern in Dana Point, Calif., can relax at the centrally located bar, on the patio, or in the restaurant. One of the luxuries afforded the staff and management at this new location is the new Ashly Remote iPad App for, which provides customized control of the two Ashly ne8250pe network 8-channel amps with onboard Protea DSP processing.
Based on the success of its work at the San Diego location, owner David Wilhelm asked No Static Pro Audio in Burbank, Calif., to design and install the sound system at the new location. No Static CEO Eugene Gordon personally commissioned the system. “I showed the Ashly Remote iPad App to one of the managers, and he was intrigued,” Gordon says. “He pulled out his iPad and in literally 10 to 15 minutes, I had designed a custom interface made to order from scratch.”
“I can walk into any part of the restaurant with it and immediately adjust the volume to the appropriate level without having to run back and forth to a control panel in the back,” Wilhelm says.
The system inputs include a music server, audio from the selected television channel, a DJ or band input, and a wireless mic, all of which feed the Ashly amps. The built-in Protea DSP processor replaced an entire rack of separate components with two 2RU boxes. The outputs feed seven zones—bar, dining area, private buffet, patio, private patio, restrooms, and kitchen—covered by 21 Community Veris 2-8B loudspeakers, four JBL SB210 subwoofers, and a handful of Electro-Voice Evid c8.2 in-ceiling loudspeakers for the restrooms and the kitchen. Three Ashly WR-5 wall-mounted remotes provide backup control.
