1 SOUND deployed for Bali’s Potato Head Beach Club


The Potato Head Beach Club recently upgraded to a 1 SOUND audio system, provided by the audio manufacturer's distributor, Melodia, and installed by Indonesian audiovisual consultant, Sontastic. Located in Bali, the beach club plays host to renowned DJs all day and night, as well as providing curated entertainment, attracting party goers from all over the globe.

The goal for the project was to have a high-quality, durable and power-efficient sound system able to handle daily DJ performances from 10am until 2am, while not creating noise pollution for the neighbouring hotels or beaches. Independent audio consultant, Michael Boyle and the team implemented around 60 1 SOUND loudspeakers for the entire distributed system, which included the upper-level dining indoor and outdoor space, the main dancefloor and bar, the lawn with daybeds and the beachfront pool.

Cannon C5 coaxials were deployed to power music for the seated dining areas on the upper level and under the overhang. The team noted that they chose the Cannons for their extended low-frequency response, which resulted in the design not requiring subwoofers in those areas. For the main bar and dancefloor area, two Contour CT212 and SUB2112 systems were deployed utilising the Contour Rigging System, capable of 145dB max SPL. The smaller CT28 Contour loudspeaker is distributed in the rest of the space, mounted and aimed from the ceiling in a horizontal deployment, as well as from columns in a vertical deployment using the CT28 Horizontal Brackets and the CT28 Wall Brackets. These are supported by additional SUB2112s.

Transitioning from the open concept building out to the lawn with daybeds are clusters of two CT28s and a SUB310 to provide a long throw. Alongside this, Sontastic mounted Cardioid Tower LCC44s, SUB310s and Cannon C6s loudspeakers with custom mounts to palm trees in the seating areas by the beach and pool. Additionally, the pool bar features Cannon C4 marine loudspeakers.

1 SOUND’s founder and designer, Lou Mannarino, worked with Sontastic on the system optimisation when the installation was complete. Sontastic’s CEO, Ian Johansson, also worked closley with 1 SOUND to make sure that every loudspeaker was made with stainless steel 316 A4 hardware and accessories, to combat any challenges posed by the humid and wet weather conditions in Bali. Boyle and Sontastic noted that the project was a success and managed to provide the sufficient audio, while not polluting the beach or neighbouring hotels.
