Genelec Speakers Chosen for New York Pub The Dead Rabbit

— Owners Sean Muldoon and Jack McGarry are aficionados of great sound, so Genelec is their first choice as they continue to expand their pub empire in New York, the most challenging bar city in the world —

NATICK, MA, March 18, 2019— When restaurateurs Sean Muldoon and Jack McGarry claim that theirs is “the best bar in the world,” they’re not kidding — their Dead Rabbit pub did top the North American category of the World’s 50 Best Bars list in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 from foodandwine.com. The Village Voice also voted The Dead Rabbit the best in the New Bar, Bartender and Whiskey categories in 2013, 2014 and 2015, respectively, even as Time Out NYC cited them for the Best Cocktail Bar in 2014 and Best Bar Team in 2015. Not surprisingly, they also choose the best when it comes to sound, selecting Genelec speakers for all of their pub projects, including The Dead Rabbit, as they did when they expanded the pub late last year, nearly tripling its capacity to 250 in New York’s Financial District neighborhood. As they have in the past, Canal Sound and Light helped The Dead Rabbit enhance its sound to match its bigger space, with seven new Genelec 4020B and five 4030B active loudspeakers (designed specifically for challenging commercial installations) installed on the expanded main floor, and another six 4020B speakers on the new second floor.

“Sean and Jack are incredibly particular about the sound in their restaurants,” observes Jeffrey Kwan, Owner of Canal Sound and Light, one of the major suppliers of AV systems for New York City restaurants and live-event spaces. “We had installed Genelec 8020A and 8030A speakers in the original Dead Rabbit, and they sounded great. But the bar was so successful it was constantly packed, so they had to expand, breaking into the space next door and also going up. So we had to increase the sound for the pub, as well. Naturally, Sean and Jack wanted Genelec.” Kwan says Genelec’s 4020B and 4030B installed versions, which share their superior design with the Genelec 8000 Series monitors, add features such as tamper-proof Phoenix connectors. Their controlled directivity allows the system to be easily installed in many types of acoustic environments, providing outstanding sound coverage. “As an active loudspeaker, it contains drivers, power amplifiers, and active crossover filters, so there’s no need for amp racks to take up space,” he explains. “That’s a critical consideration in a place like downtown Manhattan.”

But it’s the Genelec sound that attracts users and listeners alike. Kwan notes that the newly expanded Dead Rabbit hosts live music — Irish bands set up near the front of the pub on Sundays, playing traditional Irish music through a pair of 4030Bs he installed there for that application, while a DJ blasts away at night in the back of the bar, spinning through three 4030Bs. But the sound level is always just right everywhere, such as the two “cubby snug” booths that can seat up to eight patrons and that have their own Genelec 8020As to cover them. “The Genelecs can handle it all, from background music to live sound, and always sound great and never overpowering,” says Kwan. “They’re one of the top choices when it comes to a restaurant in Manhattan.”

Genelec, the pioneer in Active Monitoring technology, is celebrating over 40 years of designing and manufacturing active loudspeakers for true and accurate sound reproduction. Genelec is credited with promoting the concept of active transducer technology. Since its inception in 1978, Genelec has concentrated its efforts and resources into creating active monitors with unparalleled sonic integrity. The result is an active speaker system that has earned global acclaim for its accurate imaging, extremely high acoustic output from small enclosures, true high-fidelity with low distortion, and deep, rich bass.

Genelec is also celebrating over 10 years of its Smart Active Monitoring™ technology, which allows studio monitors to be networked, configured and calibrated for the user’s specific acoustic environment. Each Smart Active Monitor or subwoofer is equipped with advanced internal DSP circuitry, which tightly integrates with the GLM (Genelec Loudspeaker Manager) software application, running on Mac or PC. GLM’s reference microphone kit allows the user’s acoustic environment to be analyzed, after which GLM’s AutoCal feature optimizes each Smart Active Monitor for level, distance delay, subwoofer crossover phase and room response equalization, with the option of further fine tuning by the user. By minimizing the room’s influence on the sound, Smart Active Monitors deliver an unrivalled reference, with excellent translation between rooms.
