    Spa Resort Hawaiians, a family water resort in Fukishima prefecture, Japan, had not long completed an extensive refurbishment, including the commissioning of a new sound reinforcement system headed by QSC Audio Installation Line Array (ILA) loudspeakers, when the terrible earthquake and tsunami of March 2011 wreaked havoc in the area. The resort had to close, but reconstruction work began almost immediately, and the ILA is now back in full service on the venue’s recently completed entertainment stage.
