Suited and booted: Martin Audio CDD installed in Dr. Martens store

Leicestershire-based NoiseBoys Technologies Ltd. have installed a Martin Audio CDD PA in the Dr. Marten’s Boot Room, the live venue at the back of the boot company’s new store in Camden Market.

A regular programme of gigs has been promoted at the venue since it was opened earlier in the year, with the likes of Mykki Blanco, Warpaint plus a host of other live acts and DJ’s having performed there already.

NoiseBoys have flown a pair of the compact CDD10 (10”) Coaxial Differential Dispersion speakers on each PA wing along with a CSX112 (single 12in) subwoofer.

Crowds at the back are serviced by four of the tiny CDD6 (6in) satellite speakers, on a separate control circuit for when the venue is opened out to the overflow area in the main store via the stable door.

The sound system has met and exceeded our expectations

The speakers had to be flown off a ground-supported box truss rather than from the ceiling of the Grade-II listed building.

“Therefore, aside from CDD’s excellent dispersion pattern, weight and size were a further consideration,” said NoiseBoys director, Phill Beynon.

“As this is a flexible room, used as a shop during the day, it was important that customers could roam freely without the risk of tripping over cable and so on. We wanted the installation to be compact and serve the space well but at the same time respect that proper bands would be coming through with their sound engineers, and so we needed a recognisable brand.”

Added Daniel Freedland, UK marketing manager for Dr. Martens: "The sound system has met and exceeded our expectations and delivers exceptional quality across all our activities. NoiseBoys were immense partners throughout the speccing out of the DM’s Boot Room and we now very much see this exciting new store and cultural space becoming a hub for the brand, its fans and Camden."
