Soon after taking over the former Wardour Street nightclub, The Trap, and converting it into Stringfellows Soho, Peter Stringfellow had a change of mind. He decided that, while his table dancing concept would work on midweek Soho nights, the weekends would be best suited to a full-on luxurious nightclub. Enter: The Wardour, an elegant entertainment concept, which also avoided confusion with Stringfellows' Covent Garden club of 26 years.

By this time, London-based installation company Viba Sound Ltd had already filled the Wardour Street venue with distributed 12in ceiling speakers. “While these would have been fine for the girly nights, something with much more punch was now required for the dance weekends,” said the company’s Peter Kellet.

Peter Kellet has put in such a highly specified system that Peter Stringfellow has joked, “This might even tempt me back onto the decks myself.” More seriously, he added, “To compete with the A-list clubs in the West End, we had to have a top dance system, and Viba Sound has provided us with an exceptional NEXO solution.”

As part of the full sound, lighting and video package, the installers have divided the ground and basement floors into five zones (three downstairs and two up) serviced by a total of 22x stereo and mono outputs (including peripheral areas). To cover these, Kellet has used 30x NEXO PS8 full-range compact loudspeakers, with 12x LS500 subs providing bass extension — processed through three BSS Soundweb SW9088iis devices and powered by 24x QSC RMX 2450s.

Says Peter Kellet, “We always try and install NEXO wherever possible. The PS8 is both versatile and compact — we run them in our hire fleet so we know how reliable they are. Matched with the LS500s they provide a powerful combination with even dispersion. By doubling the size of the original speaker output and putting in a lot more sub bass, everyone is happy.”

This is music to the ears of high-profile resident DJs like Chris Roberts, and legendary owner Peter Stringfellow himself is most impressed. “I always seek the best, and this NEXO set-up is more than a match for any other A-list clubs in the West End.”
