One Eight Six – AV Installation Manchester

High end drinks and live music in opulent surroundings

We had the pleasure of supporting the venue owners with a bespoke audio-visual design to deliver the atmosphere and customer experience they were looking for.

With live music 5 nights a week, the stage production element was crucial, and we were able to draw on our extensive live production experience to deliver the ideal solution for both customers and artists.

You enter through a historic frontage on Manchester’s prestigious Deansgate into a wood-panelled barbershop; take a trip to the basement, and you’ll find a speakeasy music and cocktail venue hidden behind a one-way mirrored door.

Neuron delivered a complete A/V package of audio, lighting, video, and control systems with custom user interfaces.  We also supply their ongoing technical staff to ensure the venue operates at its’ best.

The main PA system from Fulcrum Acoustic’s incredible CCX series was chosen for it’s incredible audio quality and compact size, running on Powersoft amplification and supplemented with Yamaha Commercial Audio products for areas outside the main performance space. The venue runs from a Xilica Solaro FR1 processing platform with Allen & Heath mixing desk, Chamsys lighting control and beautiful P2 Hexaline fixtures from Portman Lights.

We engaged with Neuron Pro Audio at the start of the project for design and installation. Could not have been more impressed. Everything from meeting deadlines to bespoke equipment creation. These guys are the best in the business. Thanks again gents, will certainly be back for more work in the future! DEAN MAC - FOUNDER/DIRECTOR - ONE EIGHT SIX
