Austin, Texas — the newly transformed Summit Worship Center, recently upgraded its sound system to support the quality of performances at the center. When David Cherry of 5 Words Media was approached by the center’s Lead Pastor, Eric Moore, about an upgrade, the conversation began with addressing the current system that was underpowered. When the center moved into a new 15,000 sq ft space [about 300 seats] back in 2018, the old loudspeaker system was not cutting it.

The step-by-step system overhaul process at the Wellin Hall, inside the performance venue of Hamilton College in Clinton, NY.

The town of Clinton, NY is the home of Hamilton College. Precision Audio Services has provided audio engineering services to the college’s Music and Theater Department for several years, and this spring the company heads up a sound system upgrade in Wellin Hall. The 700-seat hall has served as the central hub of music education and concerts for the college since its construction in the 1980s. The bare concrete and polished wood walls combined with flown wooden acoustic panels above the audience creates a highly reverberant environment—perfect for the hall’s original purpose of unamplified acoustic performances.

However, these properties that make the environment desirable for acoustic performances, also make sound-reinforced events a significant challenge. "With an RT60 of almost 2.5 seconds, achieving a clear mix and vocal delivery is typically a major source of frustration for visiting mix engineers,” says Michael Lawrence from Precision Audio Services. “Although to a large extent, this is simply the reality of working in such an environment, one of the goals for the new design was to increase the consistency over the space and minimize excess energy splashing onto the walls and other non-audience surfaces, both areas where the current installed system struggled."

Another design challenge was presented by the way the space is used – or, more accurately, ways. The hall hosts a wide variety of musical, theatrical, dramatic, and speech events that necessitate a large degree of flexibility, where the current system presented some limitations. “We have three different mix positions depending on the needs of the show,” explains the venue’s Technical Coordinator, Bill Di Paolo. “Sometimes we are driving press feeds, live stream feeds, backstage zones, and we need a way to pull those feeds off the console without the operator having to jump through hoops. Another thing that’s been a bit of a problem for us is that the current mains are dead hung, so there’s no way to get to them for maintenance if there’s an issue. We had to swap out a bad box last year and it turned into a whole labor call just to get the box down to the deck to be worked on.”

The system design is far from the traditional install-patch approach. “Sometimes I have to adapt to things very quickly, on the fly, and in the past that’s been a challenge where we couldn’t get physical access to a loudspeaker, or all the signal flow was happening in the back of a rack somewhere with no easy way to get signals in or out of the rig at various points in the chain,” Di Paolo notes. “For larger events, we typically have a dedicated sound engineer but often it’s just me trying to handle multiple things at once, or we have a student operator, and so we need to be able to get to things easily.”

Starting from the console outputs, the new system design approach allows quick and easy changes before or after the processor, all the way to the loudspeaker positions themselves. No punch-down connectors in the back of racks – all the system patch points were brought to the front of the drive rack in a custom XLR patch bay system from Elite Core Audio, resembling more of a touring rack design mentality. I knew of several DSPs that would have been an appropriate fit for this project, but settled on an Allen & Heath AHM-64, which I felt offered the “best of both worlds” between a typical install-type free-wire DSP and a more live-oriented fixed-structure DSP.

An A&H IP6 controller sits next to the mixing console, configured for quick access to mute/unmute the entire PA plus dedicated mute and level controls for the ADA assistive listening system, the backstage 70-volt system, and the press send. These feeds are derived from the console mix and accessible via the patch bay, so providing a press send is as simple as plugging in a cable and turning a knob to adjust for the mic or line level requirement of the press equipment.

The main PA hangs presented some issues as well – the existing hang point locations didn’t allow for the hangs to be lowered for maintenance due to the proximity of the loudspeakers to the hall’s architectural elements and lighting fixtures. "We decided to move the hang points onstage about 18 inches, which would further the clearance away from the side walls to allow the arrays to be freely raised and lowered. It required the creation of new points via custom-length bridles between existing steel. This enabled the system to be lowered for maintenance or simply have the trim height adjusted for various events. The standard trim height was chosen to be the best compromise of sightlines and coverage, while the chain falls gave the option to lower and re-splay the arrays for theatrical events in this space – something not achievable in the past." Lawrence explains.

Der Cannstatter Wasen ist neben dem Münchner Oktoberfest eines der größten Volksfeste in Deutschland. Auch beim Wasen stehen in den Zelten die Zeichen klar auf Stimmung und geselligem Beisammensein bei Musik jeder Art. Schon zum zehnten Mal betreute das Unternehmen SOUNDLINE Ton+Lichttechnik mit Inhaber Robert Reichle sowohl beim Wasen wie auch alljährlich am Frühlingsfest das Göckelesmaier Festzelt. Im mehr als 4.000 Menschen fassenden Göckelesmaier Zelt setzte Robert Reichle in bewährter Weise auf Audioequipment von RCF: so wurde auf der Hauptbühne das Line Array System HDL 30-A installiert, das durch zahlreiche TT-Module, die im gesamten Zelt verteilt waren, unterstützt wurde.

The Sulim Kadyrov Mosque, located in the village of Oyskhara, has a capacity of up to 15,000 people. Opened in 2020, the 70+ RCF speakers project for the building was carried out by Master Sound with the assistance of the Moscow-based RCF distributor ARIS.

In 1932, Sulim Kadyrov was convicted by the authorities for teaching the Holy Quran and religion of Islam. For his actions, he spent 14 long years in the Gulag camps.

The grand opening of the mosque took place on August 21, 2020, with the head of the Chechen Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov attending as a special guest. The celebration coincides with the 69th anniversary of the birth of the first President of the Chechen Republic, hero of Russia, Akhmat-Khadzhi Kadyrov.

The air volume of the hall, taking into account the under- and upper- balconies, is about 14,000 m3, with a total surface area is 6360 m2. Acoustic calculations were measured by the computer modeling software AFMG EASE. The sound system covers the entire premises of the prayer halls (the main prayer hall and two halls on the basement level), providing optimal intelligibility as required.

Since there are no intelligibility standards required in Russia, ARIS engineers used external scientific publications about acoustic standards in mosques, including those carried out by ARIS, and with the support of the Acoustics of Halls, inside the Research Institute of Building Physics laboratory (RAASN). According to these studies, taking into account the volume of the main prayer hall, the optimum reverberation time for RT60 in the frequency range of 500-1000 Hz should be from 1.9 to 2.2 seconds. "Since there were no possible adjustments to the original finish, the challenge to reach the optimal RT60 was difficult," comments Alexandr Shamray, Head of Sales at ARIS. "To achieve good intelligibility, the Speech Transmission Index (STI) must be around 0.60, for excellent transmission, or more. Taking into account the extremely high resonance of prayer halls and the lack of a meaningful reduction using acoustic absorbers, we focused on​ intelligibility parameters. Relying solely on controlled directivity and quality of the sound system we worked on reaching 0.50-0.55 (or higher)".

Im Januar starteten die Snowboard-Weltmeisterschaften 2021 mit einem viertägigen Wettbewerb im italienischen Valmalenco – aufgrund von Covid-19 leider ohne Publikumsbeteiligung. Damit war der Weltcup erstmals nach neun Jahren Pause wieder im Skigebiet Alpe Palù mit seinen rund sechzig Pistenkilometern vertreten. Für die Ausstattung der Audio- und Videotechnik installierte der zuständige Ausrüster Frate Professional ein drahtloses System mit mehreren Groundstacks aus RCF HDL 26-A Line-Array-Modulen und HDL 35-AS Subwoofern.

Die Anlage sollte die Beschallung des gesamten Parcours vom Start bis zum Ziel ermöglichen, über eine Länge von 800 Meter Luftlinie. Fabio Frate und sein Team hatten sich für eine strategische Lösung entschieden: „Um lange Kabelwege zu vermeiden, haben zwischen dem Technikraum der Liftanlage und dem Regieraum am Ziel das Neutrik Xirium Wireless-System eingesetzt. Eine bereits vorhandene symmetrische Leitung entlang der Sesselliftanlage ermöglichte zudem die Kabelverbindung zu den Lautsprechertürmen am Start.“

Das System war inklusive eines Tages für die Einrichtung an fünf Tagen 8 Stunden ununterbrochen in Betrieb und die ganze Zeit über auch nachts (und bei Schneefall) montiert. Zum Schutz kam lediglich das Regenschutzzubehör für die Eingangssektion an der Rückseite der Module zum Einsatz. „RCF hatte uns garantiert, dass wir das System sorglos einsetzen könnten, da alle Teile wetterfest ausgelegt sind und auch bei Minustemperaturen einwandfrei arbeiten. Und so war es auch, obwohl die Temperaturen nachts bis zu -25° erreichen.“ Zusätzlich zur Beschallungsanlage hat Frate Professional auch eine Outdoor-LED-Wand mit 3,9 mm Pixelabstand zur Videoübertragung installiert. Video und Audio liefen hier perfekt synchron.

Durrel Sports hat bei der Ausstattung der Heimspielstätte der Cincinnati Bengals mit RCF kooperiert, um für echten Concert Sound zu sorgen. Mit mehr als 580 RCF-Lautsprechern u.a. auch einigen Sonderanfertigungen wurde das Paul Brown Stadium wieder zu einer der bestklingenden Sportstätten in den USA. Alles wurde trotz der weltweiten Pandemie pünktlich geliefert und installiert.

In den letzten 20 Jahren traten die Cincinnati Bengals gegen ihre NFL-Rivalen im Paul Brown Stadium an, einer Arena mit 65.515 Plätzen, die schon immer großen Wert auf die Leistung und Qualität ihres Audiosystems gelegt hat. Bekannt durch Gigs von Künstlern wie Kenny Chesney und Guns N' Roses, ist das PBS, wie es von den Fans genannt wird, der Meinung, dass der Sound, der sich durch die Stadion- und Sitzbereiche zieht, auf allen Ebenen den Erwartungen an ein Konzert gerecht werden sollte, sei es am Spieltag oder bei besonderen Veranstaltungen.

Zu diesem Zweck wurde ein dreistufiges Projekt zur Erneuerung des ursprünglichen, 20 Jahre alten Audiokonzepts des Stadions abgeschlossen, das am 4. Oktober vor einer reduzierten Zuschauerzahl debütierte, als die Bengals die Jacksonville Jaguars besiegten. Das neue System wurde von Durrell Sports Audio Management aus Nashville, Tennessee, entwickelt und implementiert. Es ist eine Mischung aus hochwertigen Komponenten, modernem Audio-Processing und maßgeschneiderten Lautsprechern, die von RCF in Italien speziell für die Anforderungen dieser einzigartigen Anwendung produziert wurden.

"Das Paul-Brown-Stadion ist in puncto Audio anders als jedes andere im Land", erklärt John Horrell von Durrell. "Jeder Aspekt seiner Spieltagsproduktion, von einfachen Durchsagen bis hin zur Musik, ist so live, wie es nur sein kann. Hier gibt es nichts, was auch nur annähernd an eine aufgezeichnete TV-Show erinnert. Als wir mit der Aufrüstung des Audiosystems beauftragt wurden, war es uns daher wichtig, ein System zu entwickeln, das echte Spitzenleistung auf Konzert-Niveau bietet."

Das Upgrade-Projekt wurde in drei Phasen umgesetzt, wobei die erste im Jahr 2018 startete und unter anderem neue Delay-Lautsprecher von RCF im Oberraung und die Vordachebene brachte. In Phase zwei wurden 2019 etwa 120 neue RCF-Lautsprecher im Unterrang und 70 weitere in der Vordachebene installiert, zusammen mit acht Doppel-21-Zoll RCF-Subwoofern auf jeder Seite der Vordachebene.

Phase drei des Projekts wurde im Januar 2020 bewilligt, so dass im Februar die Arbeit begann. Durrell arbeitete Hand in Hand mit United Electric aus Louisville, Kentucky, um das Konzept in die Realität umzusetzen. Als die Pandemie ab März weltweit die Arbeits- und Materialkosten in die Höhe trieb, hielt das Design- und Installationsteam mit Hilfe von Lieferanten und Herstellern, darunter auch RCF, konsequent die Bauzeiten ein.

The Florian Krygier Municipal Stadium has recently undergone a complete modernization which includes the installation of a new sound system based on RCF P Series speakers.

The Florian Krygier Municipal Stadium located in Szczecin, Poland, is a football stadium with a long history. It was built in 1925 with the name of Florian Krygier, named after a Polish football coach who was an instrumental figure in Pogoń Szczecin’s history.

Since the 1950s club management was under MKS Pogoń Szczecin until 1989 when Szczecin City Commune transferred operations to the Municipal Sports, Recreation and Rehabilitation Centre (Polish: Miejski Ośrodek Sportu, Rekreacji i Rehabilitacji - MOSRiR). Until the beginning of 2007, it was the most prominent facility in the Polish Orange Ekstraklasa football league. It is currently used for football matches and is the home stadium of Pogoń Szczecin.

The stadium itself has recently undergone a complete modernization, so only part of the old stadium is still in place. A significant reconstruction started in 2019 with planned completion scheduled for 2022. The investment includes the Training Centre for Childres and Youth (Centrum Szkolenia Dzieci i Młodzieży), remodeling and expanding the stadium, football fields, and associated infrastructure. The new stadium will reach 20,500 seat capacity and 22,000 square meters of covered area. It will transform into a “closed” stadium with four grandstands and roofed.

The first phase of modernization of the stadium within the west and south grandstands has been completed recently with a new sound system based on RCF P Series speakers. All P 6215 are suspended to the roof of the stadium coupled in vertical clusters, two speakers per cluster.
