Among the many reputations that Bengaluru city enjoys as Garden City, Silicon Valley of India, and Pensioners’ Paradise, is the latest trapping as the city of next-gen dining destinations. The city, of late, has sprung one too many dining and lounge facilities that stand out as the new breed of charm and wonder places that package engaging sound and music along with delicious food varieties.

Living the latest reputation are two newest dining and lounge destinations – ChinLung and Coconut Grove that have quickly turned diners’ favourites for their ambience, food, and great quality music experience- noticeably powered by LD Systems.


Delicious food. Pocket-friendly alcohol. An amazingly quirky vibe with inviting interiors that includes chic industrial lighting, wooden dining furniture, and some much-needed greenery around. These are just some of the aspects of Chin Lung one of Bangalore’s most dependable and most loved destinations to unwind and enjoy a bit of entertainment and nightlife.

What also makes Chin Lung even more endearing to patrons is the awesome music experience at the venue, which is thanks to the perfectly understated but extremely impactful sound solution from LD Systems that adorns the entire venue.

Designed and installed by Bangalore based solutions company Acoustic Energy – Chin Lung sports multiple numbers of the compact yet powerful DQOR5TB two-way passive loudspeakers that have been mounted at key points across the venue to optimize coverage of high and mid-range frequencies. Enhancing this aural experience is the sublime low-frequency fidelity offered by multiple numbers of the compact yet powerful Sub88A subwoofers that have been neatly tucked away out of sight at key areas across the venue to enhance the overall soundscape.

States Paul De Silva of Acoustic Energy: “The DQOR5TB and Sub88A is a match made in heaven. The system really does personify the age-old saying that all good things come in small packages. Not only is the system powerful enough to cover the entire venue effortlessly, but one can also experience every little nuance of music with great clarity. Plus installing and tuning the system here was such a breeze. This surely was a fun experience for our team, which was only made better with all the backend support that we received from the team at Stagemix, the distributors of LD Systems.

We’re excited to work with LD Systems on our future projects at the earliest,” he exudes confidence.

On the other hand, Charan Ponappa of Concrete Audio – the solutions company that designed and installed the spanking new audio system at Coconut Grove – Bangalore’s latest hot-spot to reminisce the beautiful scenes and cuisines of Kerala – has his own success story with the brand.

“The comprehensive sound solution from LD Systems that we’ve installed at Coconut Grove is unlike any other! The system as a whole is extremely intuitive, responsive and powerful, while also being beautiful and elegant enough to blend in seamlessly with the décor and aesthetics of the venue – both indoor and outdoor … What’s more is that the entire venue enveloped in an immersive soundscape that highlights even the most nuanced music notes, while also offering a consistent tonal signature. This means that the sound experience at the outdoor section is as pleasant and enjoyable as it is in the indoor section!”

Charan reveals that the Concrete Audio team received a clear brief from the venue’s management to design a comprehensive system that would offer clear, consistent and impactful sound performance while also being unobtrusive in appearance. Based on this, Concrete Audio chose to equip the indoor section of Coconut Grove with the LD Systems MAUI i1 column loudspeakers to act as the primary system, along with the LD Systems Sat82 multipurpose speakers for additional reinforcement. For the outdoor section, the team chose to install the LD Systems MAUI i1 column loudspeakers once again as the primary system, with the LD Systems DQOR 5W as additional reinforcement.

“Working with LD Systems products is great. The performance value is really good, and the speakers can easily be controlled and adapted to fit any given requirement. We’re thankful to the Stagemix team for all the support they provided throughout the course of this project, and we’re looking forward to our next project with them in the future” concludes Charan.
