Paju City Civic Center, South Korea

The Opportunity

Established in 1994, Paju City Civic Center is a public facility owned by the Paju City Facility Management Corporation, with five floors above ground and five basement floors. The public corporation utilizes the Center to promote the arts, host sporting events and improve the quality of life for Paju residents. However, the venue’s existing audio system presented major challenges, including inconsistent electrical work and a lack of output from the speaker amplifier, prompting organizers to commission a complete system overhaul. Additionally, the Center is an old building that isn’t structurally equipped to handle modern audio systems without additional support.

The Solution

After conducting a structural safety diagnosis, TechDataPS Co. Ltd. overcame these challenges by designing and installing a new audio system using flexible piping and versatile JBL Professional, Crown and Soundcraft audio solutions.
The installation team utilized JBL VTX V20 professional loudspeakers and S25 compact high-output line array subwoofers to deliver full dynamics, wide coverage and crystal-clear sound throughout the venue. Additionally, JBL SRX712 stage monitors provide equally clear and distortion-free sound for onstage performers. Crown I-Tech 4×3500HD amplifiers with OMNIDRIVE HD Processing and the LevelMAX Limiter Suite efficiently power the speakers, and the Soundcraft Vi2000 digital audio console and Vi Stagebox offer unparalleled mixing power and input flexibility.

The Impact

Organizers for the Paju City Civic Center noted how the venue’s age presented a unique challenge, but a new system with best-in-class technology was nonetheless a priority. They commended the TechDataPS team for their technical skills and achieving a satisfying final setup.
