AVE turns to Electro-Voice for Mawimbi Seafood Restaurant


An Electro-Voice audio system has been installed at Mawimbi Seafood Restaurant in Nairobi as part of an upgrade project by Audiovisual Engineering (AVE) to fix existing audio issues the venue was experiencing. Mawimbi Seafood Restaurant is a gourmet, fine dining restaurant offering a contemporary fusion of international and Kenyan cuisines alongside local live music.

“We were initially contacted by the restaurant to provide a set of Pioneer CD players and a mixer,” recalls AVE technical director, Omar Abdalla. “I enquired about the rest of the audio setup but these works were already being handled by another company. Then coronavirus started and everything in Kenya stopped – all restaurants, clubs and rental companies were closed. We were on full lockdown. “Around mid-October we were contacted again by Mawimbi. They had been experiencing issues with the other new equipment they had installed and they wanted us to go check it out. It was a basic BGM system and was being used for DJ parties.”

The venue is split into three distinct areas: the restaurant, swimming pool and terrace. AVE has installed four Electro-Voice EVC-1122-95PIB outdoor loudspeakers and EVC-1181SPIB subwoofers for the swimming pool area, six EVC1082-00B and two EVID-S12.1B subs to extend coverage across the terrace area, and Evid S4.2T and Evid-S12.1B subs for the main restaurant area. An Ashly Audio Protea NE 24.24M handles processing and Ashly amplifiers run the speakers.

“The problem the venue was experiencing was certainly not the fault of the previous equipment, but rather the person who designed it not understanding what the client was looking for,” explained Abdalla. “After listening to what the client was trying to achieve, we proposed the Electro-Voice solution.”
