A performance in progress on the stage at Spa Resort Hawaiians following the post-earthquake reconstruction work, with the QSC ILA Line Array Loudspeaker System visible at both sides of the stage.
Fukushima, Japan (September 18, 2012)—Spa Resort Hawaiians, a family water resort, recently re-installed of its QSC Installation Line Array (ILA1) Loudspeaker System. The previous ILA1 system had just recently been installed in early 2011, when the resort was ravaged by the earthquake and tsunami in March that year.
Japanese QSC distributor Onkyo Tokki Ltd (OTK) was responsible for both ILA installation efforts. The entertainment area at the spa, which hosts evening Hula dance and Polynesian live music events for the spa’s customers, is located behind an indoor lido pool area, and is surrounded on three sides by two-tiered audience seating with a maximum capacity of 700 people.
To cover the space, the QSC ILA1 was chosen both times due to its 140-degree horizontal range of coverage; as a result, no outfills or center clusters were needed in the system. OTK installed a dozen WL2082-i loudspeakers and two pairs of WL118-sw subwoofers. A dedicated SC28 system controller was chosen to optimize the performance of the system, in which the speakers were driven by a combination of QSC PowerLight PL325 and PL340 amplifiers.
The stage sound system was installed in two arrays mounted five meters from the ground, one on either side of the stage and each consisting of six WL2082-i elements and a pair of WL118-sw subs, covering every seat in the house, the furthest of which are 30 meters away from the twin QSC arrays.
