Purobeach Black Sea in Mamaia banks on Electro-Voice
November 20th, 2012
- Chic new beach club in the Romanian Black Sea resort of Mamaia equipped with an Electro-Voice distributed sound system

- EVID and ZX1i loudspeakers, ZXA1 and Live X subwoofers, Q series amps and DC-One sound system processors are among equipment used
Mamaia is the largest and best-loved bathing resort on Romania’s Black Sea coast. The Purobeach Black Sea is the latest luxury beach club to grace this popular holiday destination. Set in a mangrove swamp, the premises – comprising a pool terrace, a lounge, various bars and restaurants (both in- and out-of-doors) and a private beach – afford up to 500 guests at a time every conceivable comfort.
Since entertainment plays an ever more important role in the catering sector, great value was attached here to the quality and versatility of the sound distribution system. At the end of the day it was Bucharest-based Pro Sound Solutions that came up with the most convincing solution in the view of the club’s proprietors. This success was attributable not only to the extensive experience of the Pro Sound Solutions team in the installation sector but also the tailor-made audio solution the company was able to propose.
Among the loudspeakers featured are stylish models from Electro-Voice’s EVID series (24 x EVID 4.2 and 12 x EVID 3.2), complemented by 14 x ZX1i two-way loudspeakers – a configuration capable of offering not only linear reproduction of music but also an excellent level of intelligibility, even in the acoustically challenging pool area with its reflective surfaces. To enhance the bass whenever necessary, 15’’ and 18’’ subwoofers from the Live X series (8 x ELX118P and 4 x ELX115P) as well as two ZXA1-Sub 12’’ active subwoofers are on hand to reinforce the lowest frequencies. Five Q44 and four Q66 power amplifiers drive the lavish installation, which is controlled by two Electro-Voice DC-One sound system processors.
“The Electro-Voice speakers convinced the club’s management not only through their acoustic performance but also their elegance,” recalls Cornel Petcu, Pro Sound Solutions’ sales manager. “The white EVID and ZX1i models made a particularly good impression. Not only are they compact and aesthetically pleasing but they accord perfectly with the Purobeach design concept.”
