The sound of Polonia Stadium

Warsaw, Poland - Stadium Generała Kazimierz Sosnkowski has undergone a complete renovation under KS Polonia Warszawa SA management, installing a new RCF sound system for the best engagement of their fans. TOMMEX company, official distributor for RCF Install products in Poland, took care of the delivery, assembly, and start-up of the system.

Also called Polonia Stadium, the building is a multi-purpose sports facility with 7,000 seats. The stadium opened for the first time in 1928, then destroyed and reconstructed after World War II. The Polonia Warszawa Club uses the stadium; it also serves as a training facility for the national football team's training camp each season. Additionally, the stadium hosts RUGBY matches played by the SKRA Warszawa Club.

The new RCF sound system of Polonia Warszawa covers the grandstand, the pitch, and the sports commentator stand. All systems are connected digitally via a Dante audio network. The system can also fully process signals in time and provides frequency domain, and manages dynamic processing for each zone.

The sound system's priorities are high speech intelligibility and high quality of music reinforcement while providing high power and efficiency, priorities perfectly secured by the RCF P Series. The P Series, used as the main audio system, is waterproof and housed in a weather-resistant box, protected from UV rays, and is adaptable for indoor and outdoor use, confidently meeting all the requirements of the IP 55 standard.

TOMMEX installed three different P Series models for ideal coverage of the stadium. The P 3108 two-way speakers provide sound for the main zone and side stand; P 3115T speaker units reinforce the pitch with a wide coverage area; P 1108T speakers amplify the Stone tribune.
 

THE SOUND SYSTEM'S PRIORITIES ARE HIGH SPEECH INTELLIGIBILITY AND HIGH-QUALITY MUSIC REINFORCEMENT WHILE PROVIDING HIGH POWER AND EFFICIENCY; PRIORITIES PERFECTLY SECURED BY RCF P SERIES.

Four-channel, RCF power amplifiers from their IPS Series [IPS-3700] powers the system, combining high performance and reliability with the latest amplification technology. The mobile sports commentator stand has been equipped with an analog audio mixer connected to the network with a converter, wired and wireless microphones, and an audio player.
Also, an eight-zone desktop microphone equips the command post, enabling quick calling and warning messages for the entire system or its selected zones, a digital line delay device, and a digital matrix to route the signals.
