Lebanese apr?s-ski restaurant equipped with QSC loudspeakers

The Le 1700 restaurant in Lebanon’s Faqra ski resort has had a number of QSC K and KW Series active loudspeakers installed.

Located at an altitude of 1,700 metres, Le 1700 specialises in French cuisine, and also offers live music.

"We were asked to provide some speakers for a live test as part of the complete refurbishment of the restaurant," said Pierre Fahed of QSC’s Beirut-based distributor Techno Sound. "The PA had to be suitable for the playback of recorded lounge music suitable for quiet dining, but also for the amplification of live music for dancing. The management tested several brands, but they chose the QSC K and KW Series after our president, Georges Bitar, showed them what the speakers could do on site."

Setting up the six K10 speakers, two K12s, six KW122s and five KW181 subwoofers at Le 1700 took two days, and the installation was completed in time for the start of the 2013 ski season.

"The guys at Le 1700 have been very pleased with their choice," Fahed continued. "I think the sound quality of the QSC speakers won them over; they liked how the speakers sounded when running quiet and loud, and they liked our reputation for good after-sales support – which we offer even for clients halfway up a mountain."
