DNA Lounge has four separate sound systems in each of our four rooms.

The sound system in the main room is a combination dj / live music sound system that serves the main downstairs dance floor, stage, and second floor balcony.

All sound system control and routing is provided by a pair of BSS Sound Web 9088 MKII 8×8 digital processors. These are signal-processing computers that digitally simulate all of the crossovers, compressors, equalizers, etc. used in the PA. By using these, we're able to have a single sound system that serves double duty as both a dj system and a live system, since it can be completely reconfigured at the press of a button.

The dj station, front-of-house sound board, and lighting station are located on a raised platform above the dance floor, with a clear view of the whole main room.

The Above DNA sound system is also controlled by a Sound Web, and simple lighting controls are integrated into the DJ coffin.

The two upstairs back rooms ("Lounge" and "Dazzle") each have their own DJ sound systems as well.

More details on the physical layout of the rooms can be found on the Facilities page.
