PANGAEA With roots dating back to the ‘90s, Pangaea is a brand that has made a name for itself internationally as an ultra lounge boasting sophisticated design elements, generally of African infl uence. Establishments baring the name already exist in the US, the UK and other European destinations, as well as Singapore but founder and operator Michael Ault of The Ault Group is always on the lookout for opportunities in new markets. When he was approached by The Spice Group’s Dr BK Modi, who had a raw space crying out for a new purpose at the Ashoka Hotel in New Delhi, Michael seized the moment and broadened The Ault Group’s horizons. “A majority of our top customers at Pangaea Singapore are extremely infl uential Indians, including a great many billionaires,” explained Michael. “They were very frank with us, and felt sure that Pangaea would be a big hit in either Bombay or New Delhi.” Due to an enforced closing time of 12.30am, The Ault Group decided only to participate on a consultancy basis - which involved designing, branding, building, training, publicising, marketing, promoting, booking talent, setting up systems and controls, and opening the venue - and then The Spice Group would take over the

venue operation. After outlining a design he deemed would produce one of the most stunning nightclubs in India, Michael and his Project Manager, Garry Lawrence began to search for an installation company that would be able to realise their vision. White Eagle Entertainment won the contract to supply and install the audio, lighting and laser equipment at Pangaea and the team was headed up by Managing Director, Arun Kalra. Arun explained the design brief: “I was told to specify a system with high energy sound that would encourage everyone to dance and ensure that the artwork on the wall remained a focal point.” Arun favoured Outline as a loudspeaker manufacturer and used the company’s Open Array software to determine the optimum confi guration and mounting positions. The main system comprises six Outline Doppia II 9075P three-way loudspeakers, four Outline DVS 15 wide range loudspeakers, two Outline DVS 12 high effi ciency loudspeakers and two Outline Eidos 10 two-way loudspeakers, all of which are equipped with passive low-loss crossover to cater for the mid-high frequencies. These are supplemented by six Outline DBS 18-2 subwoofers that extend the low frequency response and two Outline Eidos 118 S subwoofers, which offer deep low frequencies - with peak SPLs of 135dB at one metre - in a compact enclosure. Arun opted to continue with the Italian theme, turning to Outline to supply the system’s power too. A total of nine amplifi ers drive the loudspeaker cabinets, a combination of fi ve Outline T Five and two
