A recent upgrade to the sound system at the Moorea Beach Club at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas includes 22 QSC Audio AcousticDesign AD-S282H surface-mount, full-range loudspeakers.
Selected for their weather resistance and durability, the dual 8-inch, two-way AcousticDesign Series loudspeakers support background music and DJ performances at the club, which is described as providing a sophisticated European bathing experience.
“The AD-S282H can take the Vegas heat, and it can take how dry it is,” says Matthew Paupst, director, Lighting and Control Systems at AVDB (Audio/Video/Design/Build) Group in Las Vegas, which handled the project. “It doesn’t matter: rain, shine, dust, dirt, whatever, the QSC Loudspeakers take a beating and keep on going strong.”
The Moorea Beach Club is a “Toptional” day club offering its adult-only clientele a variety of poolside cushioned chaise lounge, cabana, living room and villa options. The venue’s sound system upgrade was designed to compliment the sound system at Mandalay Bay’s Daylight Beach Club, according to Paupst, who worked with Mike Cromer of QSC’s regional rep firm Audio Geer on the project.
“They wanted an outdoor sound system that would be great so they’d be able to have their own great sound for the pool parties,” he explains.
The AcousticDesign AD-S282H loudspeakers are located throughout the club, including the bar, cabana, Moorea Day Bed and upper Moorea Pavilion areas. “There are also two AD-S282Hs at the entrance,” says Paupst. “So the party starts right when you walk in the door, and continues throughout.”
Musical entertainment comes from a variety of sources, he adds. “During the pool party times, they have a DJ. During normal operations, when they’re not having a pool party, they’ve got a DMX player that provides background music.”
