Electro-Voice reinforces Lebanon resort
28 September 2012
Lebanon - Lebanon's latest hotspot is called Veer, a luxurious boutique hotel and resort, which opened recently in the region of Kaslik north of Beirut. This exclusive complex beside the beach of Zouk Mikael offers visitors not only exquisitely furnished rooms but also villas, apartments, and even underwater suites.
The client demanded a high-end solution for every component of the project, and that is exactly what the client received. The invitation to tender stipulated that the audio system be suitable for all eventualities, from the provision of quiet background music to catering for DJ sets and even live concerts, with audio inputs as well as outputs distributed throughout the entire complex. In the fierce competition, Electro-Voice's distribution partner AMAC was able to prevail and secure the contract for this prestigious project.
"Absolutely everyone fought for this project," said AMAC's sales manager Wissam Hayeck, who conducted the planning and installation, "but thanks to the technical maturity of our offer, the final decision was in our favor."
After only two weeks of onsite work, and thanks also to assistance from Electro-Voice's technical support team, AMAC completed the installation in time for the official opening. The result is a PA system covering a large area (70 x 50 m) in which there are several bars and swimming pools.
For the main sound reinforcement system, the AMAC team opted for two line arrays each comprising 12 Electro-Voice XLD281 elements. Six EV F1152 loudspeakers serve as back fills for the VIP aquarium pool and the restaurant. On hand to reinforce the low frequencies are 16 Xsubs.
As monitors for DJs and bands playing live, four TX1152FM and two TX1122FM loudspeakers as well as three Q99 power amplifiers can be introduced at any time. The entire audio system is driven by 16 Electro-Voice CP3000S and four CP4000S amplifiers, while a NetMax N8000 digital processor from Electro-Voice provides a user-friendly system. Thanks to an individually tailored IRIS-Net user interface, a variety of different audio parameters can be loaded and tweaked from a PC.
"The enthusiasm for the installation has been overwhelming," said Hayeck. "The system is versatile and the sound powerful and of first class quality - everything, in fact, our customer, Mr. Hagop Tekeyan, had hoped for from the installation."
