The cafe, located in the heart of Dubrovnik's Old Town, is housed in the former monastery of the Clares, which has been transformed into a beautiful space that extends over 850 square meters and can accommodate more than 400 guests. In classic Hard Rock Café tradition, the interior is adorned with iconic rock memorabilia, such as guitars, costumes, and photographs of famous actors and musicians.
To ensure that the cafe's sound system met the strict requirements of the Hard Rock license, the cafe's AV integrator LAV Projekt carefully selected and installed a combination of RCF speakers. The main space inside the cafe is equipped with 23 RCF Compact M 06 loudspeakers from the RCF Business Music catalog. These speakers provide excellent sound coverage and are designed specifically for playing background music. The cafe's courtyard features RCF P 3108 waterproof speakers which are ideal for outdoor use.
For live music events, the cafe has two mobile audio systems relying on the TT+ Audio speaker line, the flagship brand from RCF. The smaller indoor stage is equipped with two RCF TT 515-A active sound boxes in combination with two RCF TT 808-AS active subwoofers. The larger outdoor stage is equipped with two RCF TT 22-A II active two-way high-output sound boxes with RCF TT 18-A II subwoofers.
"During the entire process, we maintained clear communication with our client, ensuring their involvement in every step of the project,” says Patricio Valenta, audio system specialist at LAV Projekt, the official RCF distributor for Croatia. “We were confident of the quality, precision and ease of installation of the RCF products. This is exactly what allowed us to provide a top-quality sound installation that fulfilled all the client’s needs and requirements."
Every audio zone in the cafe is interconnected by audio lines that pass through an Xilica Solaro FR1 modular processor. This processor allows the cafe's staff to easily redirect various sound sources to multiple zones. The cafe's bathrooms are equipped with RCF PL 8XB ceiling speakers.
Valenta continues, ‘Our team worked tirelessly to ensure a flawless installation so that all visitors could enjoy the amazing sights and sounds that the Hard Rock Cafe brand is known for and we are very proud of the results."
