Designed and installed by Adam Weiner, principal of ITI Audio Inc., working with partner William McClure and consultant Brian Miller of Edit Design, the Martin Audio system consists of four Martin Audio Blackline+ H3+ three-way speakers, two H3H+ three-way speakers, and two F15+ enclosures as DJ monitors in addition to the five WS218Xs powered by Martin Audio MA9.6K and MA12K amps. BSS Soundweb London Blu-160 and XTA DP226 are used for processing.

The landmark system had already earned praise since the Washington club’s inception. Chris Richards of the Washington Post wrote, “Bass drips like subsonic honey from U Hall's six-figure sound system, an incredible machine that trumps any nightclub's in the city.” Asked about the bass system, club principal Will Eastman noted to DCist, “One of our friends from the 9:30 Club was here last night, and he said, ‘nobody that works in this club will ever have kidney stones.’”

Commenting on the system, Weiner told Beatport, “U Hall is an example of what happens when people who care about how their music sounds do everything right in designing their club. Although the system bumps like no other, it only has five subs. That’s a true testament to the power of Martin Audio.”

Asked why the owners opted for Martin Audio, Weiner concluded, “They heard Martin Audio at a previous ITI installation and knew it was the best. They describe the system as amazing and intense.”
