El Portet Denia
D.A.S. Audio makes a splash at El Portet in Denia (Alicante)
El Portet shopping, food and entertainment center, tucked inside the marina in Denia (Alicante, Spain), recently opened its doors in a new boat-shaped building which houses a restaurant (Mr. Fisher), chill-out terrace (La Marserena), and nightclub (Sounders), all equipped with state-of-the-art D.A.S. sound reinforcement systems. The center has quickly become one of the most popular hotspots on the Levante coast, thanks in no small part to the outstanding sound featured in these three distinct venues.
The owners of the complex, Grupo El Raset, contacted local company Denia Music to provide and install the sound system for all three establishments. The Denia Music technicians once again turned to the reliable D.A.S. Audio systems, drawing from the manufacturer’s ample product catalog to design a tailored sound solution for each separate space.
Denia Music opted to install systems from D.A.S. Audio’s Arco Series in the Mr. Fisher restaurant; these systems feature a discreet design and provide soft, high-quality background music. A total of 32 white Arco 24 loudspeakers were installed throughout the venue, integrating seamlessly into the tasteful décor. An additional four robust D.A.S. Artec 506 loudspeakers, also white, were installed in the restaurant’s outdoor seating area.
The sound technicians designed a solution based on D.A.S. Audio’s Artec Series for the Sounders nightclub, installing eight Artec 510 paired with two D.A.S. RF-218 subwoofers on the dance floor. The combined response of these systems offers remarkable sound pressure in this area, where sound quantity and quality is crucial. 12 Artec 508 augmented by another eight Arco 24 loudspeakers were brought in to cover the areas in the room with less demand for sound pressure. To round out the installation the Sounders DJ booth was equipped with two powered D.A.S. Action 12A.
The third venue, a chill-out terrace called La Marserena, was fitted out with 26 white Arco 24 equipped with the IP54 kit for use outdoors and a powered Action 18A subwoofer for superb sound at this outdoor hotspot. Two powered Action 8A loudspeakers were also brought in for the DJ booth.
All three venues were amplified with D.A.S. PS and D series amps, with sound management controlled by D.A.S. DSP digital signal processors.
