Portolito in Valencia fitted out with D.A.S. professional sound systems
The recently inaugurated Portolito is Valencia’s new hotspot for great food and entertainment. Located just steps from Las Arenas beach, this charming new venue is the ideal place for anything from a mid-morning snack to a full midday lunch. Guests can also stretch the fun well into the evening with an afternoon coffee or a sunset cocktail with both the Mediterranean and some of the best music around provided by D.A.S. professional sound systems in the background.
Created by the same owners as the city’s well-known Lotelito, this newer venue was designed to offer beach-side dining and entertainment and offers the same casual style with a clearly Mediterranean touch in its décor. The extensive equipment installed features a complete D.A.S. Audio sound reinforcement system, the owners once again deciding to call in Telesonic Valencia and D.A.S. to install the sound at Portolito after a successful experience at Lotelito in downtown Valencia.
The sound technicians were challenged to install a system that could match the venue’s characteristics and broad range of options. With this musical variety in mind, the Telesonic Valencia team recommended that the owners install systems drawn from the versatile and reliable D.A.S. Arco and Artec 500 series of products.
With its discreet visual impact and highly reliable music reproduction, the Arco systems are an exceedingly ideal choice for background music. A total of four Arco 4T systems combined with two Arco 24T systems were deployed to cover every corner of the venue. This extensive range of systems, made from highly resistant ABS plastic, pack a high performance system into a compact size.
Eight Artec 506 systems were brought in to provide extra support to those areas of Portolito where music is more of a focus (according to the time of day). The owners chose a monochrome combination of four white and four black cabinets to create a clean and elegant look.
No professional sound solution would be complete without the crucial low-frequency support, and the system at Portolito was rounded out by four D.A.S. Arco 12Sub subwoofers, on hand to offer that crucial bass punch whenever needed. The entire system also features four D.A.S. Powerpro PS-400 amps, engineered to reliably meet demanding audio requirements and the ideal choice for venues like Portolito.
