State-of-the-Art RCF Audio System Delivers Pristine Sound at Poland's New KGHM Ślęza Sports Arena

The recently constructed KGHM Ślęza Arena in Wrocław stands as one of Europe's premier multi-purpose sports venues, covering over 11,000 square meters of training and competition space. The investment cost 66 million zloty and was created thanks to the cooperation of 1 Ślęza Wrocław Sports Club, the Polish and Lower Silesian Athletics Association, and funds from the Ministry of Sport and Tourism, the Municipality of Wrocław, and the Marshal's Office of the Lower Silesian Voivodeship. The titular sponsor of the hall is KGHM Polska Miedź, a giant in the mining industry. As the home court for the basketball club Ślęza Wrocław and a hub for athletics in Lower Silesia, the arena required a sound system equal to its world-class facilities.

To meet the demanding acoustics across the expansive arena areas, Tommex, RCF's authorized distributor in Poland, designed and supplied the complete package, including DANTE routing and amplifiers tailored to the venue's needs. The robust RCF sound system is based on the powerful Compact M Series speakers. Strategically placed Compact M 12 and M 10 loudspeakers deliver pristine audio with thunderous bass to seating areas and courts. Compact M 08 and M 05 monitors placed throughout minor areas provide consistent coverage and voice intelligibility.

The athletes can use a six-lane 200 m track, an eight-lane 60 m track, a six-lane warm-up track, a long jump, a high jump, a pole vaulting hill, or a throwing area for shot put, discus, javelin,  as well as a unique long throws zone on a national scale. 

For basketball matches and other hardwood court sports, the system adapts to fill 1,500 spectator seats of a mobile basketball court with seamless, balanced sound. Cultural events also benefit from the system's ample frequency response and power.

Beyond its core sports applications, the RCF system's flexible architecture and DSP control readily configure for different modes and zones. With exemplary acoustics being critical to world-class venues, the RCF system optimizes KGHM Ślęza Arena's audio quality and reliability.

The general contractor for the investment implemented in the "design and build" mode was the company Strabag.
