Creating a cool trendy environment is essential for small bars and cafes. They generally require compact sound solutions to cater to their background music needs, as they have smaller distances and fewer zones to cover. Loudspeaker systems such as the LB20 premium commercial loudspeakers provide superior acoustics for these kinds of venues. The perfect addition to these loudspeakers is the PLENA matrix – ensuring excellent sound thanks to a smart equalizing approach and built-in limiters. Low operating costs and expandability additionally ensure that the system can be used for years to come.
