Installing Audio at the Beach

A One Systems outdoor audio system was recently installed at the swanky new Goya Beach Club in Alanya, Turkey.

Alayna, Turkey (January 2, 2018)—With most of the U.S. trudging back to work amidst a deep, deep freeze, marvel in envy at the Turkish audio pros who recently designed and installed a brand-new One Systems sound reinforcement system for the likewise brand-new Goya Beach Club in Alanya, Turkey.

The Goya Beach Clubs ports a pool/sunbathing area, club bar/restaurant on the lower level and a beach bar restaurant adjacent to the beach, so the audio team at Istanbul-based sound distribution company AKHAN-TT Ses Isik Gorsel sistemler had its work cut out for it.

“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 to reach a distance into the sea,” said Faik Haluk Akgun, 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 background music as well as higher impact club music later in the evening.”

Aiming to providing music and paging without overwhelming guests at the venue, Akgun specified four One Systems 104/HTH loudspeakers for the pool and sunbathing area. Meanwhile, the pool bar gets a little more club-like with audio from a pair of 106/HTH and loudspeakers along with two 108/HSB subwoofers.

Over at the beach area, the system had to provide outdoor coverage across an area 15 meters deep and 32 meters wide, so Akgun opted for a pair of 208/HTC loudspeakers mounted to poles near the beach bar entrance.

Not all of the system has to survive the sun and sea air—there’s an indoor lounge, bar and restaurant located adjacent to the pool area, and for that area, Akgun specified two 108/HTH along with two 108/HSB subwoofers for the space, reinforced by four 106/HTH loudspeakers. The two 108/HSB subs from the pool bar are brought indoors during the winter months to provided additional low end to the club atmosphere.

“The client was extremely pleased with the end result,” said Akgun. “The Beach Club is extremely popular with both locals and tourists in the area, much of that due to the exceptional sound reinforcement system.”
