About / Our club description and curiosities


THE CLUB

The club is located in Milano, Via Gatto, inside the parking ATM Forlanini. Of approximately 1,150 sqm. is disposed on one floor of a post-industrial stable in the east area of Milan.

Easily accessible from exit of the Orbital east (tangenziale est) “Forlanini” and most importantly, easily accessible from the ring road of Viale Umbria and Viale Abruzzi. The club has at his disposal two dancefloor! The club, at its entrance, has a parking space that’s managed by ATM Milano, for a capacity of about 500 cars.

(Amnesia is the only club in Milano that provides a parking place of these proportions.)

 

THE IMAGE

Not only a club, but a polyfunctional space for “location”, Fashion shows and theme parties in a post-industrial area in between the centre and the Milan airport Linate. Everything has been harmonized with a great taste of minimal with an Hi-Tech structure designed and furnished to follows the regnant fashion system, simple but at the same time original.

The colors are the ones of Steel, anthracite and black, which underlines details most widely studied and empowered by special lighting, on purpose designed for Amnesia by Light Designer after participating in a competition promoted during the show Furniture of April 2005!

The vaulted ceiling is a huge container of technology , with neon tubes, canals system, and audio and video (to have an impact acoustic such as Amnesia Milano you only have to fly across the ocean!). A substantial part is occupied by two large back-lit bars with waterfalls that goes down on large windows, behind them there’s resin sculptures with waves and glitter.

 

The line up session is one of the most exciting in Milan!

THE DREAM

Milan is an important European city with great primates such as the “fashion” and “design”! And is with no doubt the economic capital of Italy.

A city that boasts a great fame especially abroad. Visited annually by thousands of people who come to town not only for tourism but especially attracted by the big international issues that Milan fair offers in its programming.

A city is defined as “great” not only when there’s a vital daytime life, but also when it can boast a cheerful and joyful nightlife.

The AMNESIA MILANO project was born with the intention to dedicate a Club in Milan, with its image and its own defined style where all details are built following the goal to provide quality, and Milano deserves this!


TECH DETAILS

Main room:

N.4 H1315 T

The H1315 is three-way full range loudspeaker system that incorporate a 15” LF transducer, a 10” cone MF transducer and a 1.4” exit titanium compression driver. The system is very compact and provides very high output and accurate voice and sound reproduction. The system is equipped with the latest generation of RCF precision transducers, all of them with powerful neodymium motors. The LF driver, equipped with a 4” voice coil and a state of the art neodymium motor, is mounted in a vented enclosure with optimised front loading. The MF cone driver is a unique RCF sealed basket design and is loaded into a exponential, baltic birch 60° x 40° midrange horn. The 3” coil MF driver is acoustically equalized thanks to a unique RCF complex phase plug design. The HF titanium compression driver is loaded on a constant directivity horn with a coverage of 60° x 40°. The compression driver horn is rotatable. The internal passive fi lter provides crossover and equalization between the midrange and the compression driver. The Crossover network offers Compression Driver Protection thanks to a unique design Active MOSFET Circuit. The system is driven in bi-amped mode, is able of producing a Max SPL of 136 dB and handles 900 Watts AES (LF) + 400 Watt AES (MF/HF). The loudspeaker enclosure shape is multi-trapezoidal and offers a double coupling angle each side. The cabinet is constructed of multi-ply baltic birch plywood and fi nished in a very resistant, textured, polyurethane black paint. The cabinet includes 2 recessed handles for transportation and positioning and a total of six double M10 fi xing point for fl own applications and extensive internal metal bracing. The front steel grille is epoxy powder coated.

N 20 S8018 T

The S8018 high-effi ciency subwoofer is the ideal bass-frequency extension to complement the RCF Acustica Compact series two-way loudspeakers. – The low-frequency transducer is an RCF Precision high-power 18” woofer with a 4” inside/outside voice coil to minimize power compression and extend the life of the product. This new woofer design is the result of the latest refi nements in RCF experiences in compact active and passive subwoofer design, resulting in a fast and controlled reproduction of the bass frequency range. Using horn-refl ex loading to the transducer, the subwoofer design ensures an effi cient acoustic response down to 40Hz. The Baltic birch plywood enclosure is painted with black, heavy duty, textured epoxy. The front is protected from a strong powder coated metal grille. The cabinet features two Neutrik Speakon™ connectors in a recessed input plate. A 35mm pole mount adaptor is provided in the top of the cabinet, along with integrated hand carry points in the cabinet sides. The S8018 is part of RCF’s Acustica Compact Series, which includes two way constant directivity enclosures and high effi ciency subwoofers in easily installed enclosures.

N 12 C5212 L

The C5212L is a full range extremely versatile controlled narrow-dispersion, two-way loudspeaker system offering substantial power and effi ciency for a variety of professional applications that include permanent installations, primary sound reinforcement, plus portable systems and supplementary fi ll for larger systems. The high-frequency section is a constant directivity CMD horn designed mathematically for Constant Matching Design in relation to the woofer system, loaded to a 2” RCF Precision Neodymium compression driver with a 2.50” diaphragm assembly for smooth, controlled dispersion. The low-frequency transducer is a 12” RCF Precision woofer with a 3” voice coil. The system includes a high-level crossover network that features markedly lower (than conventional) induction values in series with the woofer. We call this innovation LICC (Low Impedance Compensated Crossover). The benefi t is delay reduction, reduced phase shift and superior transient response. Dynamic high-frequency driver protection is accomplished with a new RCF exclusive – Active Mosfet Compression Driver Protection System, (AMCDP) chosen to complement the power curve of the driver. The C5212L’s crossover is easily bypassed for bi-amp or tri-amp (with the S8018 Subwoofer) via a recessed changeover switch. The C5212L is part of RCF’s Acustica Compact Series, which includes two way constant directivity enclosures and high effi ciency subwoofers in easily installed enclosures.

  • LOUDSPEAKER MANAGEMENT

    N° 4 XTA DP 224
    Superb audio quality – carefully optimised double precision signal processing coupled with a 40-bit internal data path ensures a dynamic range in excess of 110dB. The high sampling rate means minimal filtering providing exceptional sonic purity. A flexible 2-input/4-output multi-mode format caters for any crossover configuration, regardless of scale. A total of 36 parametric equalisation bands are available, each providing +15 to -30dB of gain at centre frequencies between 20Hz and 20kHz, with a wide range of ‘Q’s available between 0.4 to 128. All parameters feature fine resolution with 1/36 octave frequency steps, 0.1dB gain increments, and 100 ‘Q’ settings. Any parametric section can also be set to operate as a high or low shelving filter.
