“Growing up in Amsterdam, I’ve had the opportunity to experience clubbing in Europe and Ibiza. When it comes to club sound systems, I’ve found that nothing comes close to Void Acoustics! Our patrons compliment us on how good the sound is; many of them returning on a weekly basis to experience it. It’s just phenomenal!”

Sosha Merckelback - Owner of Capulet

Fortitude Valley is Brisbane’s party district. The combination of heritage-listed properties and contemporary buildings play host to a countless number of restaurants, bars and clubs. Capulet has become the go-to place in the Valley for house and techno with their weekly parties and roster of international DJs. The majority of the venue is outside, which is perfect for the Brisbane climate. The feeling of outdoor clubbing is enhanced by the venues design which features a garden bar, timer booths and hanging plants.

When Sosha Merckelback took ownership of the club earlier this year, he knew that a new audio system from Void Acoustics was the only choice for Capulet. “Growing up in Amsterdam, I’ve had the opportunity to experience clubbing in Europe and Ibiza. When it comes to club sound systems, I’ve found that nothing comes close to Void Acoustics! Our patrons compliment us on how good the sound is; many of them returning on a weekly basis to experience it. It’s just phenomenal!” 

The audio system is made up of Air Vantage speakers and Trinity X subwoofers for the dancefloor, with Cyclone 10 loudspeakers installed as delays to cover the rear of the venue. The DJs are catered for with a pair of Airten V2 speakers installed as monitors and Void BIAS series amplifiers are used for processing and amplification. The system was designed by Adam Dullens from Audio Logistics (Void Acoustics’ Australian distributor) and Steven Windolf from AU Music Productions (system installer). “It’s great to deal with venue owners who are so passionate about sound! The Void Acoustics system at Capulet has provided them with the audio quality and visual presence they desired. Our thanks to Steven and the team at AU Music Productions for their assistance on the project. They’ve delivered a great result for the client!” Adam Dullens, Audio Logistics. 

Dragonfruit Fridays is a weekly house and techno event at Capulet which recently hosted international guests including Joseph Capriati, PIRUPA and M.A.N.D.Y. “Dragonfruit aims to bring a European vibe to music enthusiasts in Australia, exposing them to the very best house and techno music. The Void Acoustics system at Capulet is the perfect vehicle for us to deliver that musical experience on a weekly basis.” Jay Berry - Music Director & resident DJ at Dragonfruit.
