EV chosen for Lebanon’s largest fixed install
September 27th, 2012
- The boutique hotel and resort VEER boasts the largest fixed audio installation in all of Lebanon
- The centerpiece is formed by Electro-Voice XLVC line arrays with XLD elements and Xsubs
- Responsible for the planning and implementation of the installation was Electro-Voice’s Lebanese distribution partner AMAC
“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 twelve Electro-Voice XLD281 elements. Six EVF-1152 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.” The new reference is creating quite a stir in the region, reported Hayeck, resulting in more installation commissions for AMAC.
