Boracay gets an AVL refresh
UAE: Boracay club in Deira’s Asiana Hotel has recently undergone a significant audio, video and lighting upgrade. The venue has been treated to an LED dancefloor, large videowalls and lasers topped off with an L-Acoustics sound system.
Freelance sound engineer and integrator, Jun Bleza, was tasked with the design and installation of the sound system. ‘The club is quite spacious with good acoustics,’ stated Mr Bleza. ‘In my opinion there was no better option for the club than to acquire an L-Acoustics solution’. In turn he contacted Gareth Armstrong from the French manufacturer’s local partner, Delta AV Solutions, to provide him with what he describes as ‘an old but still reliable dV-Dosc system’.
The solution comprises six dV-Dosc tops per side with four dVSubs per side providing low end. Power is courtesy of Lab.gruppen amplifiers while processing is from XTA’s DP226. Completing the audio system is a Yamaha LS9 mixing desk.
The visual side of the project sees Mediamatrix-controlled LED walls while the lighting sees 40 7R moving head beams alongside LED PARs and the aforementioned lasers. An Avolites Titan lighting controller completes the solution.
‘The sound is awesome, the owner is very happy,’ concluded Mr Bleza. ‘It’s got great reviews from its clients, bands, DJs and artists and Asiana Hotel CEO Mr Gene has described it as “the best sounding club in Dubai now”.’
