About District 30
District 30 is Downtown Sacramento's premier Nightclub and Special Event Venue. We are conveniently located in the K Street Mall, within two short blocks of the State Capitol Building and the Sacramento Convention Center. District 30 is directly across the street from the historic Crest Theatre and is a quick walk from The Sheraton Grand, The Citizen Hotel and the Hyatt Regency Hotels.
The Turn of the Century Building was completely restored with all the high tech accoutrement, including a brand new sound system from the world wide leader in dance club sound: Eastern Acoustic Works QX System and features Multiple Flatscreens. The façade of District 30 features a one-of-a-kind glowing LED "puzzle art" that is best experienced in person.
The Sound at District 30
JK Sound of San Francisco, has brought award winning sound design to some of the top dance clubs in the nation including Best Sound System Design for Ruby Skye. Their winning formula is to bring break through technologies to their clients well ahead of the curve. JK Sound delivered once again by turning to its speaker manufacturing partner Eastern Acoustic Works, and debuted the first ever EAW QX speaker system at District 30, Sacramento's unrivalled dance club destination.
The EAW QX speaker system is a break through in the real sense of the word. It is the best example anywhere of a tri-axial speaker in which three separate driver groups - highs, mids and lows - all emerge from the speaker on one axis. as one point source, In QX, four 500 watt 12" low frequency divers are arrayed around the 4 sides of diamond shaped speaker. In the center of the four woofers, QX has a dual concentric high and mid driver which share the same large format horn. The result is unappalled sound density, a 140 decibel speaker that is only 28" wide and 28" tall. With four of the QX speakers surrounding the dance floor of District 30, the sound system effortlessly fills the club with intense energy. This is further supported by two 2000 watt EAW SB528 subwoofers which supply super deep bass.
The system is tuned to perfection through the EAW UX8800 Focusing Processor. This is a digital speaker controller, which is analogous to an electronic lens, bringing the music into sharp focus. The UX8800 is an extremely sophisticated equalizer which also provides Sub, Low, Mid, and High frequency separation. It also serves to time alignment the Subs, Lows, Mids and Highs, as well as offering precise speaker protection, which goes hand in hand with hearing protection. But what makes the Focusing Processor unique is how it compensates for the physical limitations of the actual acoustic materials used to build speakers : Woofers are made of treated paper, Tweeter diaphragms are made of aluminum or titanium. The horns for these tweeters are made of wood or plastic. All of these materials by the very nature of their size, shape and thickness have certain acoustic resonances that are not part of the music. The Focusing Processor digitally removes these resonance with precise filters, bringing the real nature of the music closer to the listener then previously possible.
District 30 also boast two other separate areas inside the club with that have distinct speakers systems. The main bar area is covered by the new EAW JF29 speakers, also a first of their kind installation. The JF29 features a neodymium 12" woofer, a 3" titanium high frequency driver and legendary EAW crossover design. The bar area is also supported by it's own subwoofers system, the ultra -reliable and compact EAW SB250 dual 15" sub. The VIP area also has is own subwoofer, this time a hidden SB150 sub which is flown above the plush booths. The highs and mids are provided by EAW JFX88's which have a 8" woofer and 1.75" high frequency driver. With revolutionary EAW Focusing provided by the UX8800 Processor, District 30 establishes the pinnacle of performance for dance club sound.
