Alayna, Turkey - The Goya Beach Club, located in Alanya, Turkey, recently opened its doors offering a pool / sunbathing area, club / restaurant / bar on the lower level and a bar / restaurant adjacent to the beach to its guests. The facilities' ambience is enhanced by a One Systems' sound reinforcement system designed and installed by AKHAN-TT Ses Isik Gorsel sistemler, one of Istanbul's most prominent sound distribution companies since 1986.
"The pool area required a system that would provide high-quality background music while the beach system had to be intelligible with a high enough SPL reach a distance into the sea," explains Faik Haluk Akgun, the owner of AKHAN-TT Ses Isik Gorsel sistemler. "the restaurant and terrace, which convert into a night club after dinner hours, needed a system that would provide music as well as higher-impact club music later in the evening."
With ll the beach club systems being outdoors or in near proximity to the sea and salt water, Akgun was confident that One Systems direct weather loudspeakers would provide the perfect solution. After comparing One Systems loudspeakers to another popular U.S. brand, the owners agreed. Akgun specified four One Systems 104/HTH loudspeakers to provide guests of the pool and sunbathing area with medium-high output that would not overpower the surroundings. The pool bar offers a club-like atmosphere compliments of two 106/HTH speakers with two 108/HSB subwoofers.
The 104/HTH and 106/HTH are two-way, universal Direct Weather loudspeakers that are designed for use in a variety of environments. Both enclosures feature 316-grade marine stainless steel for all structural and rigging points. the 106/HTH offers 110 by 70-degree coverage while the 104/HTH offers 110 by 80 degrees.
The beach area, which required both high output and intelligibility to cover the first 30 meters / 99 feet of the sea, was taken care of with two 208/HTC loudspeakers mounted to poles near the near bar's entrance. The 208/HTC features two 8-inch low-frequency devices. The top 8-inc driver is a coaxial design the utilizes a medium-format titanium compression driver to provide even high-frequency radiation. The 208/HTC provides superb intelligibility, extended bandwidth as well as superior system dynamics - ideal for medium-throw applications like the Goya Beach Club, easily covering the sand beach that is 15 meters deep and 32 meters wide (50 x 106 feet).
The beach party vibe continues in the nearby indoor lounge, bar and restaurant located adjacent to the pool area. Akgun specified two 108/HTH, two 108/HSB subwoofers and four 106/HTH loudspeakers. Two 108/HSB subs from the pool bar are brought indoors during the winter months to provide additional low end to the club's atmosphere.
"The client was extremely pleased with the end result," concludes Akgun. "The Beach Club is extremely popular with both locals and tourists in the area, much of the due to the exceptional sound reinforcement system. One Systems provides products the consistently exceed expectations. It's a pleasure to complete another successful installation."
