We were very excited for the opportunity to work on this location in the historic Chattanooga Chochoo hotel! In keeping with Frothy's dedication to adaptive reuse, we sought to provide hardware that appeared to be historically correct, but that would also deliver up-to-date performance.
To accomplish this, we sourced antique Atwood Kent speakers from the 1920s and retrofit them with modern speaker drivers. We also found and provided a matching Atwood Kent radio head and repurposed it as the system controller.
To fill out the cafe, we supplemented this equipment with Soundtube pendant and surface-mount speakers with brass-plated grilles.
