Black Studio

Monitors: 2 × PSM318
DJ booth height: 105cm (floor to work surface)
Structure: Concrete and steel
Turntable isolation: Isonoe Anti Vibration Feet

For optimal sound quality and performance, the Black Studio booth has been meticulously designed and constructed as a solid single concrete structure. A clever ‘bunker’ design which fits precisely the F221 and BR132A bass units. These are directly under the DJ work surface directly facing the crowd.

With all sub bass in one location and working together, it removes any cancellations from other sources in different places and provides high levels of clean, defined low frequency energy which increases in intensity as you move nearer to the DJ. The definition and power of the 32” bass tuned properly with the F221’s is an incredible combination.

Despite the BR132A bass units sitting directly under the technical equipment and work surface, the booth’s inventive design and solid concrete structure generates zero vibration providing DJs and the audience with a high-quality turntable experience.

The power of the bass units, driven from a central source, converts to balanced audio distribution across the dance floor.
