d&b delivers optimal acoustics at Singapore’s hippest new music venue.

In early March, Singapore’s Tin Box: The Live House — a music venue that focuses on up-and-coming local talent — opened to the public. Tin Box, with help from prestigious concert and event management company IMC Live Global, offers a performance space to some of the region’s best artists.

Sitting below Singapore’s historic Chijmes building complex, the space is compact, but equipped with tour-standard staging, lighting, and audio. In order to give audiences and performers the best possible sound quality, the venue installed d&b audiotechnik A-Series augmented arrays to fit comfortably in the intimate 250-person room, providing the listener with a state-of-the-art audio experience.

IMC Captasia group director of artist management and development, Joy Yong, spoke on why the A-Series was the obvious choice to power the venue.

d&b is our trusted, go-to brand for our live shows and concerts. “The A-Series is more suited to smaller venues such as this live house in comparison to the other models used in large arenas.Joy Yong, IMC Captasia group director of artist management and development

Being a basement venue, Tin Box has low ceilings and is only about 240 square meters in size. Yong admitted that one of the challenges they initially had was the low ceiling height, making it difficult to provide even and complete sound coverage. However, the installation challenges were not so much technical as they were aesthetic, with a main concern being that the sound system would block views to the stage. Once the installation was complete, Yong was delighted to confirm that the requirements were fulfilled and there was no obstruction and the audience has a very good view of the stage no matter where they are in the club.


The A-Series has cemented itself as a sought-after d&b product. Combining variable splay angles and acoustic optimization in a compact format, the A-Series addresses a broad range of applications where coverage flexibility is paramount. Together, the A-Series cabinets form a d&b system that can scale from a single loudspeaker cabinet to a horizontal or vertical array of up to four A-Series loudspeakers which can be adapted precisely to venue shapes in fine increments using variable splay angles.

The response has been hugely positive. Yong had praise for the results:

The entire show experience is of top-notch quality, not just for the audience off-stage, but for the performers on-stage. Musicians and singers are able to enjoy a high standard of performance, and the audience, from right upfront to the back of the room, enjoys an equal richness of sound.Joy Yong

Lauded for being effective at larger venues such as concert halls and arenas, d&b products are demonstrating excellence in smaller boutique venues like the Tin Box too.

While reflecting on her experience with d&b, Yong had plenty of positive feedback, “Their support was great! We will without a doubt continue to use their products for future endeavors.”
