Ratchaburi Provincial Stadium Hosts Electrifying Events with a HARMAN Professional Solutions Networked AV System
September 13, 2019
RATCHABURI, Thailand—To deliver clear, intelligible sound for sporting events, live performances and more, Mahajak Development Co., Ltd. recently deployed a state-of-the-art networked AV system at Ratchaburi Provincial Stadium.
Ratchaburi Provincial Stadium is a world-class stadium and the former home of the Ratchaburi Mitr Phol Football Club. With over 10,000 seats, Ratchaburi Provincial Stadium is Thailand’s premier live event facility for sporting events, performances and more. Ratchaburi Provincial Stadium recently hired Mahajak Development to upgrade their existing sound system with a comprehensive HARMAN Professional Solutions networked AV system.
“The customer requested an audio system that could deliver crystal-clear sound during speeches, live performances and other live events,” said Mr. Pongsakorn Kanchanachayphoom, Project Director, Mahajak Development Co., Ltd. “Mounting a speaker on the roof of the stadium proved to be a bit of a challenge, as it needed to be specifically positioned for maximum impact throughout the seating area. But after careful and precise measurements we were able to achieve the desired result.”
Mahajak Development equipped the stadium with JBL PD566 full-range loudspeakers to deliver clear, intelligible sound with broad, even coverage. JBL PD525S high-output subwoofers provide deep, powerful low end down for live performances and playback. Mahajak Development selected JBL AWC129 all-weather coaxial loudspeakers for their compact, weather-resistant design and high SPL capabilities. JBL LSR305 studio monitors were installed in the control room to deliver neutral, accurate sound for critical listening. The system is powered by industry-leading Crown DCi 2|600N, DCi 2|1250N and DSi 2000 amplifiers, which were selected for their unparalleled efficiency and advanced digital signal processing capabilities. Audio is routed throughout the facility using BSS BLU-100 and BLU-50 digital audio signal processors.
“We required a customized audio solution for the new stadium that would deliver consistent coverage and vocal clarity for announcements and live performances,” said a spokesperson from Ratchaburi Provincial Stadium. “We were confident that Mahajak could design a system that met our requirements, and they have definitely lived up to our expectations. We’re highly satisfied with our new HARMAN system, which delivers exceptional audio quality and complete coverage.
"Large-scale, multi-use venues like the Ratchaburi Provincial Stadium require advanced audio systems to deliver clear voice and music coverage across all seating sections," said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM, HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. "We'd like to thank our partner Mahajak for delivering enterprise-level solutions at the facility and for creating a powerful audio solution that helps elevate the action on the field."
