The Yokouchi Pavilion has a glass and steel roof structure supported by 8 columns, 4 stage left and four stage right. The distance between the columns left/right is 55’11”. The concrete slab that the Pavilion sits on is raised about 2’ higher than the amphitheater lawn where the audience is located. We add staging on top of the concrete pad with dimensions that suit the needs of the performance.
A typical stage would be 40’ wide x 28’ deep x 2’ high, which means the stage is roughly 4’ high from an audience perspective. A stage that is 40’ allows for almost 13’ on each side of the stage to place performance support gear such as a monitor console, lighting equipment, and guitar tech workstation.
The ceiling height is minimum 27’, maximum 50’ in the center peak. I-beams are exposed and convenient for hanging truss motors. Over the center portion of the Pavilion, I-beams are 35’ above the concrete floor.
Keep in mind that the Yokouchi Pavilion is multifunctional and events are typically used in one of two ways: with a stage built on the lawn side of the Pavilion where the performance faces the audience located on the A&B Amphitheater lawn, or the performers can face 180 the other way towards the glass covered courtyard.
There are 6 fixed and 6 motorized “grills” made of African mahogany that can be raised or lowered to enclose the sides of the Pavilion. They are deployed by accessing a computer screen located in one of the Pavilion support columns.
There is a catwalk for access over the wings of the stage area and rigging points throughout.
There is a vault beneath the concrete which houses audio and lighting equipment and breaker panels.
There are two 12” tubes run underground from the vault to a position at front-of-house on the lawn. A hatch door that is flush with the lawn can be opened to access power, audio, and lighting cable runs.
The underground vault houses a Genie man lift that rises out from one of the two hatch doors and reaches the catwalk above. This is the only means of accessing the catwalk.
There are (5) white panels which can be deployed as a backdrop for Pavilion concerts facing out to the A&B Amphitheater lawn. The panels were built by Da-lite and are deployed by accessing a computer screen located in one of the Pavilion support columns. They are motorized roll drops approximately 9’W x 25’H. The 5 roll drops overlap each other and are placed slightly apart to let wind pass between them. Floor lighting can make these a colorful background for shows.
House Lighting System
At your request, we can email a Vectorworks file or a PDF of the House Lighting Plot.
There are approximately 90 aluminum par cans with 1000 watt, narrow beam lamps hanging in groups along the roof structure. They are precolored for convenience to light basic functions.
We have an extensive inventory of professional lighting equipment to support any and all types of events within this space including truss, motors, moving lights, strobes, blinders, ACLs, LED wired pars and LED battery/wireless par fixtures. We can also provide screens and projectors for outdoor events.
Please let the Technical Director know what your requirements are.
There are (2) control access panels in the Pavilion support columns at floor level, one access panel stage right and one stage left. Each panel has a DMX input for the lighting console to connect to the dimmers as well as extra available circuits, 110V and 208V power outlets, and sub-control panel access to the house lights.
A GrandMA 2 Light is available for control. An ETC Ion Console with 60 faders and dual touchscreens may be available if preferred. This is currently the lighting controller for the Castle Theater located nearby.
There are (2) ETC Sensor racks located in the underground vault with a total of 160 dimmers. About a dozen of them are dedicated to Houselights (floodlights attached to the palm trees surrounding the lawn).
The others are circuited to stage pin outlet boxes in the Pavilion roof structure and some are located in the control access panels mentioned above.
Follow spots can be rented locally and placed on temporary staging or scaffolding at the front-of-house mix position.
For concert acts facing out toward the A&B Amphitheater, we hang our Meyer Line Array speaker system which consists of 5 Milo speaker boxes per side. If needed, we can add as many as 3 Mica speaker boxes each side hung below the Milos for a total of up to 16 powered speakers which will give ample audience coverage depending on the seating charts. Seating is typically built on a show by show basis.
Subwoofers can be up to 5 Meyer HP700’s per side.
We augment the system with other Meyer powered speakers as needed that can be used for front fill, side fill or even as monitors. They include CQ1’s, UPA1P’s, UPA2P’s and M1D’s.
The system is controlled using a Galileo 616 Callisto 6 in-16 output signal processor.
For a FOH console we use a Yamaha CL5 digital mixing desk, Built-in Meter Bridge, 72ch and 8 stereo with 2 Rio Stage Boxes and iPad app.
A 2nd Yamaha CL5 is network-connected and serves as a monitor desk.
A 32ch Yamaha LS9 console is also available for a monitor desk.
If an analog desk is preferred, we have a Midas Heritage H2000 with 44mono and 4 stereo inputs which will be accompanied by a rack with compressors, compressor/limiters, gates, and playback units.
Another available analog console is a Yamaha PM4000.
For monitor wedges, we have 6 Fulcrum FA12AC Powered Monitors.
As mentioned above, the flexibility of the Yokouchi Pavilion allows the performance to face 180° the other way into the Courtyard area for smaller events. In this configuration, the Meyer line arrays can be reduced in number of speakers and hung on either side of the stage to cover the entire Courtyard all the way back to the food and beverage counters. Depending on the coverage needed and for reduced costs, we also have a line array of JBL VRX speakers with JBL 4642A subs, or the Meyer HP700s mentioned above can be chosen. If for some reason none of our in-house options are desired, there is always the option to bring in an outside system rented from a local audio rental company.
We can help you find the gear you are looking for, including backline. While the MACC has limited guitar and bass amplifiers, we often work with local vendors to supply the gear requested.
When we use the JBL VRX system in the Courtyard, there are some permanently hung JBL speakers within the Courtyard located further toward the food and beverage counters. One speaker is mounted on either side of the Pavilion columns farthest from the stage and two hanging speakers act as a center cluster. Hooking these delay speakers up to the line array ensures complete coverage within the Courtyard.
Lastly, there are two access panels within the Pavilion support columns near the stage that contain XLR inputs that can help to alleviate cable runs.
There are two Cam-Lok disconnect panels located on the Pavilion support columns, one stage right and one stage left. These are 3-phase 200A and are split from the power source so that the 200A can be accessed from either one side or the other. These are not separate feeds. They are generally used for audio and/or stage power.
There are two additional Cam-Lok disconnect panels located on another pair of the Pavilion support columns, one stage right and one stage left. These are 3-phase 400A and are split from the power source so that the 400A can be accessed from either one side or the other. These are not separate feeds. They are generally used for lighting.
The Center has several mobile power distros that can connect to the Cam-Lok disconnect panels to provide both 110v and 208v power for motors, lighting, projectors, stage power, and other equipment.
There are two lighting access panels located in the columns that also have 110v and 208v power available. There is an additional access panel located within the Courtyard area and another on the Morgado Hall lanai above the bar area.
