Time Out Market Optimizes Coverage and Sound Quality with Martin Audio

Victoria Wasylak • Supplier Scene • October 22, 2019


earNETWORKS has recently designed sound systems for the newly-opened Time Out Markets in Miami, New York, and Boston consisting of Martin Audio CDD, SX subs, O-Line arrays and Ceiling Series speakers to provide uniform coverage and exceptional audio quality. The first Time Out Market opened in Lisbon in 2014 and the popular format is now coming to other cities around the world.

Asked about the project, earNETWORKS’ Kurt Schlossberg replies: “We were asked to design an audio system that could operate throughout the day under various conditions providing background music during the day, cocktail music during the early evening and a foreground system that could support performances from DJs and bands.”

“Our goals when we designed the system,” Schlossberg continues, “were for highly articulate vocal reproduction that’s neither muddy nor diffuse, very natural sounding music running through a wide variety of current and classic genres and a very contemporary sound for DJs. So we needed a very broad-based speaker system to cover all of the genres, moods and sonic levels. Given all that, Martin Audio offered the best possibilities on every level.”

Overall, earNETWORKS has deployed Martin Audio CDD8s, CDD12s, SX112, SX212 subs and O-Line micro line arrays in all three venues. Time Out Market Miami, a single floor 18,000 square foot space, has 24 CDD8s, two CDD12s, three SX212s, two SX112s and four O-Line line array modules along with Martin Audio C6.8T and C8.1T Ceiling Series speakers for the bathrooms, hallways and other ancillary spaces. The CDD speakers are mounted approximately 10 feet off the ground at intervals around the room. Three SX212s run the length of the space and two SX112s are used as sub support for the O-Line arrays deployed for DJ and live band performances as well as reinforcement for the video wall.

Time Out Market Boston, a single floor 25,000 square foot space, includes 36 CDD8s, eight CDD12, 11 SX112s and four O-Line cabinets while Time Out Market New York, a double floor 21,000 square foot space, has 72 CDD8s, three SX112s and six SX212s.

Asked about the client’s response to the new systems, he concludes; “they are really happy. So far, the venues have been operating in all formats and everything has been flawless. CDD’s have an extremely wide range and are very articulate through the full frequency range with smooth uniform coverage throughout the venues. The sound is amazing wherever you are in the space.”
