Dev Electronics pushes up the ‘Power’ in Mumbai & Pune


Bar Bar is the new rage in Mumbai and Pune where the ‘youth’ of all ages congregate over the weekend (and weekdays too!) for amazing deals on food and drinks, and to party the night away to some awesome dance music. Located in the confines of the iconic Phoenix Marketcity mall – in Pune as well as in Mumbai, this property has been started by the same hospitality chain that runs iconic places like Shisuan House and 212 All Day Cafe & Bar.

And in addition to the overabundance of amazing spirits and delectable food, the much loved ambience that Bar Bar adorns across Mumbai and Pune, is further enhanced by an awesome music schedule – programmed by none other than the supremely talented Bollywood Mix King DJ Akhtar himself.

A representative of the Bar Bar management shares a few insights about the response that they’ve had from the audience to their gig programming, saying “It’s been very positive and encouraging so far. People have supported the gigs whole-heartedly by enthusiastically attending in numbers. We’ve also received a great deal of positive feedback regarding the music, and have implemented this to further enhance future programming prospects. Another aspect that our patrons absolutely love is the way the place sounds – through experience we know how crucial it is to have a good audio system in place that can ably support and reproduce great quality music. And to ensure that this aspect was covered thoroughly was always a priority for us. So it’s really a shot in the arm when our patrons commend Bar Bar for being a venue that sounds every bit as good as it looks.”


With the management commending the aural appeal to be every bit as great as the visual appeal of the venue, further probing into the site reveals that the venue is laced with a comprehensive audio system from powerhouse pro audio manufacturer ‘PowerX’ – a brand that has emerged as the next big thing in the pro audio circuit in India.

The powerful and efficient audio system at Bar Bar in Mumbai as well as Pune has been designed and commissioned by the team from Dev Electronics – the comprehensive pro audio solutions provider from Mumbai. After carrying out an extensive research and detailed analysis of the space, the Dev Electronics team, lead by Ketan Shetty, devised an impeccable audio solution for each of the venues, where incabling and power solutions, placement of loudspeakers and most importantly the acoustical properties of each of the individual venues were taken into consideration while designing the PA.

The main PA at the Mumbai venue consists of eight units of the PowerX PF10 mkII two way compact loudspeakers along with two units of the PowerX 118S subwoofer. The entire system is powered using amplification from PowerX with the Pro3000 and Pro4000 power amplifiers in active use. And a single unit of the dbx260 loudspeaker management processor is used for all routing and processing applications.

The main PA at the Pune venue consists of eight units of the PowerX PF10 two way compact loudspeakers along with two units of the PowerX 118S subwoofer. Two units of the PowerX PF8 two way compact loudspeakers also feature in the VIP seating area. The entire system is powered using amplification from PowerX with the Pro3000 and Pro4000 power amplifiers in active use. And a single unit of the dbx260 loudspeaker management processor is used for all routing and processing applications.

Not to forget, the DJ booth is loaded with goodies for the people who make the audience dance to their tunes, as this section features gear from Pioneer including DJM 900 NXS2 mixers and CDJ 2000 NXS2 players to delight.

Talking to the installation team about the challenges encountered during the project, they mention that one of the main work-around was the low ceiling of the indoor section. The placement of the loudspeakers and the flying points had to be done in an innovative manner so as to ensure that the lights and decorative fixtures would not obstruct the projection path of any loudspeaker. Ketan and team also suggested appropriate placements for the subwoofers too, so that all the energy would be focused on the dance floor and there would be no low-frequency cancellations. Plus, with the help of the Dbx260, the installation team provided a novel way of controlling the audio level and maintaining optimum audio performance at all times.

The management are quick to compliment the installation team on a job well done as they mention “The pro audio system designed and integrated by Dev Electronics has improved the overall ambience of the venue to a great extent – be it in Pune or in Mumbai. The owners are extremely happy with the overall sound quality as well as with the look and placement of the loudspeakers. The entire setup looks neat and attractive, and the performance is absolutely spot on! All in all, Bar Bar truly is one of the best sounding places in the city – be it Pune or Mumbai!”
