Continental Cuisine and Consistent Sound Served at Mumbai’s Typhoon Shelter




Giving shelter to those hungry for an authentic Chinese cuisine, the Typhoon Shelter restaurant in Mumbai has become one of the most popular hangouts for the young and old foodies in the city. Based on the concept of Hong Kong’s typhoon shelters, this restaurant is situated in the thriving Phoenix Mills compound in the swanky Lower Parel area of Mumbai.



The design of the restaurant has been made to create an immersive experience of sitting in the middle of an approaching typhoon. The ceiling depicts thunder clouds, giving a sense of foreboding and curiosity at the same time. Subtle lighting, Chinese motifs, visual elements and thematic music, complete the entire experience.

With a variety of spaces, including the main seating area, bar area and an exclusive private area, the Typhoon Shelter needed a multifunctional and diverse range of sound equipment. Kapil Thirwani and Prashant Nair from Munro Acoustics visited the area and found that the NEXO GEO M620 would be the perfect fit for the restaurant.



The GEO M620 is a full-range unit for stand-alone, curved array or line array application. Extremely compact in size (191 x 373 x 260 mm), the M620 module punches well above its weight of less than 10 kgs. “Our most important design objective was to achieve uncompromised sound quality, and multi-functionality for the system. The combination of high power and low visual impact makes the Geo M620 the perfect choice for the restaurant,” says Prashant Nair from Munro acoustics India.

The M6 line array configuration consists of seven speakers with two speakers covering bar area and 2 speakers at the each per side of restaurant where they are virtually invisible. And one speaker at the back side of restaurant covering private sitting area. 7 units of the NEXO GEO M620 speakers were installed at the restaurant along with 3 units of the Nexo LS18 subs. Clever cabinet design empowers the LS18 sub bass module to bring new levels of versatility to NEXO GEO products. 3 units of the high efficiency NEXO DTD amplifiers completed the sound experience.



Being an experiential restaurant, the Typhoon Shelter required an immersive sound experience, which was given to them by Yamaha and NEXO. Serviced by Munro Acoustics, the Typhoon Shelter also received installation and training for the equipment. After sales support was also offered to the Typhoon Shelter restaurant by Yamaha and Munro Acoustics.
