Helsinki's Club Kaiku Supercharged with All Danley Gear

HELSINKI, FINLAND – JULY 2017: Kaiku opened in Helsinki, Finland in 2013 and quickly rose to the forefront of the city’s lively club scene. Its popularity is perhaps founded on the prominence of its owner, Toni Rantanen, who has been masterminding the scene by founding and concurrently operating several clubs since the early 2000s. But while his name may have made people take notice, it is the consistently awesome parties that evolve every night at Kaiku that pack it to capacity (400 people) and keep A-list DJs at Rantanen’s beck and call. Recently, Kaiku upgraded its already excellent sound system to a complete Danley Sound Labs system, including loudspeakers, subwoofers, amplifiers, and processing, and the praise has, well… amplified!

Kaiku’s new system consists of four Danley SH-46 loudspeakers for full-range content. The SH-46 uses acoustical wizard Tom Danley’s patented Synergy Horn technology to deliver incredibly accurate and undistorted content even at the high volumes required of a club system – volumes where conventional loudspeakers inevitably begin to distort and thus fatigue listeners. In contrast, the Danley SH-46s sound pleasant and inviting even after an entire night of dancing!

Of course, low-end support is hugely important, and Kaiku uses three massive Danley DBH-218 subwoofers to move the floor – and the souls – of its congregants. Unlike conventional subwoofers, which essentially woof out deep frequencies that are only casually related to the frequency content of the program material, Danley subwoofers are famous for their fidelity. Their deep output is thus musical and satisfying, warm and honest. Their fidelity heightens the emotional impact of the dance music.

A Danley DSLP48 digital signal processor conditions the inputs and tunes the Danley boxes to match perfectly with the structure, size, and acoustical fingerprint of Kaiku. Its output feeds four existing MC2 E25 amplifiers, which power the Danley SH-46s, and two Danley EDA 12000 amplifiers, which power the Danley DBH-218 subwoofers.

Rantanen’s plans for the larger building that Kaiku is housed in are ambitious: the goal is to have as many as six venues occupying the building, which he already plans to call “Complex.”
