The Basebar


The Ivanhoe Hotel in Manly, Sydney has come up trumps with their basement refurbishment entitled Basebar. Beyond AV were contracted to supply and install the audio, lighting and plasma screens into the Basebar.

Project Manager Angelo Andrews decided upon a Bose speaker system; eight 502A 150 watt speakers for the dance floor as well as four 502B 450 watt sub bass boxes. A further four 502A and two 502B units are used for room fill. All are powered by Electrovoice amplifiers.

The DJ set up includes two Technics SL12000 Mk II turntables with Stanton 500AL cartridges, a Pioneer DJM 600 DJ mixer, a Denon DN2000F dual CD player and an ARX MaxiMix.

Lighting includes eight Clay Paky Miniscan HPE 300 moving mirror intelligent lights.

An Oracle T3 computerised laser system was also installed by Beyond AV which can be used for messaging and as a promotional tool. The Hotel plans to use the room for corporate events for which the laser system will be a bonus. Two NEC 50 inch plasma screens have also been installed for this purpose; they have VGA inputs connected for computer presentations.
