I am setting up an audio system for a bar I'm starting and want to know if the equipment I'm considering is adequate. As the bar is located in Ghana, West Africa, I can't find any good sound professional to hire for this setup, so I must seek advice from this forum. I hope someone can be of assistance.
Most of the time, the sound system will play light bar music and audio from the tvs, but it will occasionally need to be loud enough to give a club feel for loud music and dancing.
I'm trying to stay within a budget of $5,000 (low, I know) for materials and that includes the mixer, equalizers, speakers and woofers.
I've chosen JBL speakers and Behringer amps/equalizer due to their relatively low price and good reviews.
Attached is the floor plan of the room. It is approximately 1,000 square feet. All of the walls are constructed of cement and covered in plaster. The floors will be parquet wood and the plaster ceilings are 10' high. On 3 of the walls, there is no windows. The main entrance is floor to ceiling glass, including the doors and is approximately 17' wide. The top left corner that is slanted will contain the dj booth with all the sound controls.
I am considering installing (8) JBL Control 1 Pro Loudspeakers as the main speakers (image attached). I plan to wall mount them around the room, 9' high. 1 in each corner and 1 in the middle of each wall.
For the bass, I am considering either using (2) JBL SS88IWS wall mounted subs (image attached) or (1) JBL EON 518S 18-inch 500-Watt Self-Powered sub (Image attached).
To power this system, I'm considering using (2) Behringer iNuke NU3000 Power Amps (image attached). For the equalizer, I am looking at the Behringer Ultragraph Pro FBQ1502 (image attached).
The system will be controlled using a Pioneer DDJ-SX.
As I am not a sound professional, I want to know if this system sounds like a good one. And if not, what changes or additions do I need to make to the setup to achieve my desired sound quality.
Thanks a lot for any advice you may offer.
