This is the inaugural weekend for Opal, the bar located inside the Dossier hotel in downtown Portland. For this project, Ohm was asked to design and install an audio system that blends into complex and ornate ceilings in both the bar and dining areas. We were happy to partner again with the Chefstable Group. Opal is another great examples of their ability to create an amazing dining and entertainment experience. 

Designing the audio system was certainly a challenge as the bar ceiling didn’t allow a lot of room for speaker mounting. It took coordinated communication with the carpenters and contractor to get the speakers in the right location. The painted thin bezel speaker grills in the bar highlight the attention to detail throughout the establishment. In the end, we installed a system that includes 3 audio sources (2 Sonos connects and 1 aux input), local volume control for 4 zones, subwoofers in both dining and bar zones, and hidden speakers above the dining area (can you spot them in the photo above?).

So if you're looking for something fun to do this weekend, head down to Opal to grab a craft cocktail and enjoy the newly installed sound system.
