Charleston’s Trio nightclub upgrades with DAS Audio

Trio, Charleston’s downtown dance club and lounge, has a new owner, a million-dollar renovation, and a lineup of internationally-recognized DJs - all of which was unveiled during the club’s Grand Opening weekend in March 2019.


Renovations include a technologically-advanced light and video production system and DAS Audio loudspeakers throughout. In addition to loudspeakers from the company’s Artec and Ventec product lines, Trio also features the new E11even Sound by DAS Audio loudspeakers.


iDesign, a Miami, FL-based AV design/build integration firm, was contracted to design and deploy the new sound reinforcement systems throughout Trio. Michael Meacham, the company’s owner and lead designer, worked in conjunction with DAS Audio’s National Sales Manager for Installation and Nightclubs, John Fiorito, to create the new sound systems.


“Trio includes an upstairs club, a downstairs lounge, plus an outdoor patio area - all of which totals approximately 6,400 square feet of space,” Meacham explains. In the first floor lounge area, the iDesign team deployed four DAS Audio Artec 310.96 2-way point source loudspeaker enclosures. For low frequency reinforcement, there are also two DAS Vantec 18 bass reflex subwoofer systems. This combination of loudspeakers was installed in a mono configuration.


In the second floor nightclub area, Meacham and his installation team deployed the new E11even Sound by DAS Audio loudspeakers. Here, four ES-10 top boxes surround the dance floor at a height of 12 feet in a true 4-point stereo configuration.


These are augmented by a pair of DAS ES-218 sub bass enclosures that are coupled in front of the DJ - underneath the stage - in a mono configuration. Completing the setup, there are also two DAS Audio Artec 308 2-way point source enclosures that serve as sidefills.


“The dispersion of the ES-10 is 110 degrees horizontal x 50 degrees vertical,” says Meacham. “The 10-inch woofer handles 1000 watts of continuous power. The system is suspended with M10 eyebolts and 3 point aviation cable rigging.”
