Booom Ibiza installs world’s first Pioneer pro-audio system

Booom – one of Ibiza’s newest party places – has become the world’s first club to specify Pioneer’s recently-launched pro-audio club sound system, which pumped out the sound at its opening on 15 July.   “When we heard the test system in Tokyo, the quality absolutely convinced us Pioneer was the right choice. Now it’s installed and the club is open, we’re blown away by how impressive it sounds,” said Booom owner, Giuseppe Cipriani.   Booom commissioned Pioneer to design the sound system for the entire venue, including the main dance floor, VIP dance floor, DJ console, bar floor, upper bar, VIP rooms on levels two and three, and DJ VIP area.   The Pioneer team, working with local AV and events company The Shop Ibiza, installed four three-metre-high GS-WAVE stacks in each corner of the dance floor, coupled with a WAV-SUB multi-fold hyperbolic horn subwoofer with two 18-inch rear-loaded drivers, and an optional large horn extension that adds another 4 dB at 50 Hz.   The DJ console features six XY-122 12-inch monitors and a pair of XY-215S 15-inch quasi-bandpass subwoofers. In-fill is supplied across the club by a further 39 XY-122 speakers, 10 XY-81 8-inch ultra compact loud speakers, and 15 XY-118S 18-inch bass reflex subwoofers.   The whole system is powered by Powersoft K Series amplifiers – seven K-6s, eleven K-2s and 24 K-3s – all with in-built DSP.   According to Simon Dunmore, label manager at Defected in the House, part of Defected Records, the reaction to the installation has been overwhelmingly positive.   "The Pioneer sound system in Booom is a sonic powerhouse. The highs are crisp and clear and lows pack powerful punch. I am very impressed and, judging from the dancefloor reactions, so are the clubbers,” he said.   The Booom installation is the first in a line of Pioneer bespoke systems due to be announced, including venues in Ibiza and across the world.
