Thailand’s Popular Stadium Enhances Audience Experience with Harman Audio Solution
To provide spectators at Nakhon Ratchasima Sports Complex with an immersive entertainment experience, Mahajak Development Co., Ltd. has installed a range of state-of-the-art Harman Professional audio solutions.
Home to Nakhonratchasima Mazda Football Club, Nakhon Ratchasima Sports Complex is Thailand’s fourth largest stadium and hosted the Southeast Asian Games (SEA) in 2007. In the same year, King Rama IX donated the name of the complex in an overlap between the SEA Games. and the king’s birthday. The stadium area includes the Nakhon Ratchasima FC football ground, which is surrounded by a grandstand with a single roof on one side. The facility currently has a capacity of 25,000 seats, but will be upgraded to 45,000 in the future.
Mahajak Development Co., Ltd. said resort organizers have requested a new high-output audio system capable of delivering clear, intelligible sound with reduced reverberation during games and events. The main challenge was that the audio system had to be installed on the roof, which only covered one side of the complex, but also had to provide sound coverage to every seat in the stadium. To meet these challenges and demands, Mahajak has deployed dynamic and weatherproof JBL Professional speakers, Crown Audio amplifiers, Soundcraft consoles and BSS signal processors for wide coverage, ample output and easy-to-use controls. use.
For the speakers, the Mahajak team selected JBL PD500 Series speakers to cover the grandstand roof and JBL Variable Line Array Compact Series Line Array speakers to cover the rest of the room. Designed for a variety of venues, including sports facilities, the PD500 series speakers feature four 15-inch two-way horn systems and a 15-inch dual subwoofer for full dynamic range and consistent coverage . The JBL Variable Line Array Compact Series loudspeakers are ideal for long throw applications. Crown’s DCi series amplifiers with grid monitoring function power the speakers and the BSS BLU-100 signal processor provides flexible system configuration and management. The Soundcraft Si Impact digital mixer controls the system and supports easy-to-use external wireless control for resort staff.
In addition to the lower balcony, the Mahajak installation team also installed JBL Control 29AV-1 speakers, powered by a Crown CDi series amplifier and configured using a dbx VENU360 signal processor. , in the hallway outside the stadium for a clear, high-quality background. audio.
Nakhon Ratchasima Sports Complex said the new audio systems meet organizers’ crucial standards of reliability, durability and flexibility. A cohesive and powerful speaker system was especially essential given the stadium’s structural challenges, but Harman’s cutting-edge, easy-to-use audio systems exceeded their expectations.
