All three properties were popular and successful, but it was time to take the dance experience to the next level. Massa was looking to install sound systems specifically designed to meet the demanding needs of top-tier DJ and EDM productions. Massa contacted Ernesto Blanco, Senior Partner and Project Manager at Koncept Systems, who he had worked with previously, for his ideas regarding this business-critical, three-location project.
Koncept Systems is a full-service AV, lighting, and control systems contractor, and a long-time reseller and installer of Pioneer Professional Audio products. Massa was confident in Ernesto’s abilities to meet his budget and timeline for upgrading all three luxury properties.
“I had worked with Ernesto several times over the years, and he has always been professional and reliable,” said Massa. “I asked him for a quote on Bâoli, and he came back with a Pioneer Pro Audio based system that made such good sense and value, that I gave him the green light for working it into all three of our properties.”
Ernesto and his team were able to install all three new systems in less than four days, and within budget. It was essential that all three clubs have minimal downtime and quickly get back to the business of hosting some of the best parties in Miami.
“We needed to renovate and standardize equipment at all three locations,” explained Ernesto. “Bâoli, for example, had a mix of different manufacturers so it was not a tight sound and there were time-align issues with the patio area. The system at Marion wasn’t large enough, and the original system at El Tucán was built for live bands, not DJs and EDM, so we had some work to do.”
All three locations now have systems featuring a range of Pioneer Pro Audio XY Series loudspeakers, powered by a combination of Powersoft’s X Series and Ottocanali Series amplifiers, with Symetrix processing. The Pioneer Pro Audio XY Series is a versatile family of high-performance PA and monitor speakers that are compact and perfect for near-field monitoring — yet deliver smooth, accurate, high-quality sound to all corners of a room.
“One of the main reasons we started working with Pioneer Pro Audio loudspeakers is because they are very precise; it doesn’t matter what type of music the DJ is playing, it will sound excellent,” said Ernesto.
