A number of loudspeakers from One Systems are used in the poolside and beach environments at Nikki Beach Hotels & Resorts’ latest facility in the Providenciales Turks & Caicos Islands.Turks & Caicos Islands (June 26, 2008)–Nikki Beach Hotels & Resorts’ latest facility in the Providenciales Turks & Caicos Islands features a number of One Systems all-weather outdoor loudspeakers in its poolside and beach environments.
“For the Nikki Beach Resort & Spa’s new background music systems, we supplied a number of One Systems 108IM waterproofed cabinets for mounting on poles around the covered dining room, pool areas and walkways,” explains Mike Chafee, president of Florida-based representative firm Michael Chafee Enterprises. “A separate long-throw system is comprised of One Systems 312CIM full-range loudspeakers with 118Sub-W subwoofers. The entire background and music playback system sounds outstanding.”
A total of 12 zones can be addressed individually through the background-music system using a programmable Symetrix SymNet routing and EQ/dynamics processor. “We have two zones covering the dining areas,” Chafee says, “comprised of Inside and Outside zones that feature a total of 16 Model 108IM cabinets arrayed in a 270-degree arc. The swimming pool is covered by another zone that is comprised of eight Model 108IM cabinets, while three VIP Kiosks close to the beach are provided with an additional zone of six Model 108IMs. Two more Model 108IMs are provided in the Wedding Kiosk.”
The 108IM loudspeakers are either mounted on tall poles or affixed to the walls of the kiosks close to the roof line, and are powered via a 70- volt network from a rack of QSC CX204V four-channel amplifiers. “The long-throw system features a pair of Model 312CIM cabinets powered by a single QSC PowerLight PL380 amplifier,” Chafee continues, “while the four Model 118Sub-W subs mounted beneath the 312CIMs are fed in bridged mode from a pair of QSC PL340s.”
The One Systems loudspeakers plus accessories were supplied and installed by Kris Brown from BayView AV and PCS Open Technologies, a Tampa-based project management firm. The AV contractor and integrator was All-Pro Sound, based in Pensacola, FL.
