Sankeys Ibiza installs Pioneer Pro Audio system

Ibiza nightclub Sankeys has installed a Pioneer Pro Audio sound system in one of its rooms: the LAB.

The system comprises four three-metre-high GS-WAVE stacks (pictured) complemented by a selection of XY Series in-fill speakers, all powered by Powersoft amplifiers with Pioneer pre-sets and in-built DSP.

“We wanted a new sound system that would really put Sankeys Ibiza on the map: something powerful that surrounds you and takes you to another place,” said Sankeys owner David Vincent. “Hearing the Pioneer Pro Audio system switched on for the first time just blew us away. It delivers…and then some.”

Opened in 2011, the 3,000-capacity, three-room Playa D’en Bossa venue was the first international offshoot of the world-famous Sankeys Manchester.

“Every system’s unique and this one’s no exception,” explained Alex Barrand, manager at Pioneer Pro Audio. “We worked closely with the team to create a warm, immersive sound that suits Sankeys’ LAB perfectly.”

Since launching in 2013, Pioneer Pro Audio’s range of speakers has been installed in venues across the world, including Café D’Anvers in Belgium, Ibiza’s Ushuaia Tower and KM5, and Sound Nightclub in Los Angeles.

Resident DJ Andy Baxter commented: “Walking into the LAB was like a breath of fresh warm air. Can’t wait to select music for this system, the clarity was amazing tops, mids and lows, everything was really balanced.”
