An avant-garde audio architecture from Bose Professional tickles the aural senses at Pikkle, New Delhi



A world of newer possibilities, crafted cuisines, concoctions of mystic drinks, hand-crafted menus, delightfully cooked dishes and an enchanting ambience is what New Delhi’s latest novel bistro-bar, Pikkle, boasts of.

Serving an eclectic mix of Asian and Indian cuisine, Pikkle has brought together under one roof, experts from different culinary experiences to curate and serve dishes that exemplify intent, passion, and love. Blending creativity with authentic flavors to taste top in town, the venue’s dishes are a perfect blend of spices, thought, presentation and a tad bit of fun, all mixed in with a luxurious and warm dining experience.

The FnB presentation is undoubtedly a treat to one’s aesthetic appeal, whereas the ambience, on the other hand, rejuvenates like a novel experience does. The entrance to the venue sports an archway covered in faux leaves that leads to the upper floor where the dining area is. There are merchandise shelves with varieties of pickles, and a walk down further leads into a plush space where the seating is a mixture of upholstery in jewel tones and vintage floral patterns, with the walls covered in emerald green dragon scales. The venue also sports an outdoor seating area which invites patrons to soak in the fresh air as they enjoy their meal and drink. The frolic however, is all indoors.

With a comfortable stage area to host live gigs that spin the world of music genres ranging from rock to retro to classical and everything in between, Pikkle offers patrons the choicest music experience. This is evident even through the programmed music that is played through the day, in the absence of live performances. And patrons love every bit of it.

Jasneet Sahni & Suneet Sahni, the brain behind the Pikkle, exudes his their views about the sound experience at the venue, exclaiming, “The music we play at Pikkle is as diverse as our menu, and the music experience is as novel as the robot panda that greets you at the venue’s entrance. We must say that the performance of our new Bose Professional sound system has far surpassed all our expectations of what an ideal sound system should be. Be it live performances or pre-recorded music playback - the venue always sounds fantastic. The design and installation teams for the audio setup have done a wonderful job. We really couldn’t be more pleased!”

The avant-garde pro audio infrastructure from industry leaders Bose Professional that reinforces the mesmerizing music experience at Pikkle has been designed and integrated by the Bose’s in-house technical engineering team in conjunction with Hi-Tech Audio Systems, who are the brand’s official distribution partners in India.

Following a detailed analysis of the venue in terms of its structural and acoustical nuances, the integration team meticulously devised a precise loudspeaker scheme which involved an amalgam of Bose Professional’s finest range of install specific products. The principal FOH system at the main dining/performance area comprises a pair of the Bose Professional LT9403 loudspeaker that features medium-format waveguide, 90° x 40° coverage pattern and Bose’s V2 midrange manifold, all of which allows it to provide amazing coverage and superlative intelligibility with a smoother and more natural vocal range. Multiple units of the Bose Professional SMS 118 subwoofers provide impactful low frequency fidelity that is enjoyed and appreciated by everyone across the venue; while multiple units of the ever efficient RMU208 from Bose Professional’s Room Match Utility series of install specific loudspeakers have been deployed at strategic locations to ensure even distribution of sound across the venue’s perimeter, walkways and outdoor seating area. The entire loudspeaker system is powered through three units of the highly acclaimed PM8500 power amplifiers from Bose Professional’s PowerMatch series of amps, while a single unit of the multi-faceted Bose Professional ESP-4120 Engineered Sound Processor capably sorts the loudspeaker management and processing responsibilities.

Manik Gupta of Hi-Tech Audio System explains how Bose proved to be the perfect match for Pikkle as he quotes, “The management at Pikkle expressed their plans to offer a wide range of music at the venue, and therefore, desired a system that would not only be as dextrous enough to capably reinforce all kinds of music, but also powerful and efficient in use. Considering the dynamics of the space, we chose the LT9403 knowing that it would give us the advantage of covering a wider area at FOH, that too with uniform SPL and great tonal balance. For the areas that were out of reach of the LT9403, we chose to deploy the RMU208 keeping in mind the need to maintain tonal consistency and ability to drive the speakers louder whenever needed. Working with these products from Bose Professional allowed us to meet every expectation the client put forth – be it sound quality, performance or aesthetics – and we are extremely pleased to know that members of the management at Pikkle, as well as their patrons, absolutely love the quality of sound there.”

Vibhor Khanna, Country Manager-SAARC, Bose Professional, shares his thoughts saying, “Pikkle has made a name for itself for delivering only the finest quality experience – be it the food and beverage, comfort or any other aspect of their service; and the management’s decision to choose Bose Professional as the preferred sound solution for their venue exemplifies their knowledge and awareness of how great quality sound enhances the dining experience, while consolidating their commitment to offering nothing less than the best to their patrons. It has been an honour and a privilege for us to be a part of this project and kudos to the entire installation team, especially our partners at Hi-Tech Audio Systems, for a job well done in ensuring Pikkle enjoys the kind of bespoke world-class sound experience that it so truly and richly deserves.”
