Mitr Phol Stadium, Thailand

The Opportunity:

Deliver an audio system that delivers clear intelligibility for every seat in the stadium and unmatched audio quality, reliability and powerful performance.

The Solution:

Mahajak Development selected a complete HARMAN system, which included JBL speakers, Crown amplifiers, BSS audio processors and a Soundcraft audio mixer.

For the stadium’s main PA, Mahajak deployed the JBL PD500 Series, a line of horn-loaded loudspeaker systems with patented WRC weather protection and WRX extreme weather finish for outdoor stadium use. The respective 60° x 40°, 60° x 60° and 90° x 50° horn coverage patterns of the PD564-WRC, PD566-WRC and PD595-WRC speakers enabled Mahajak to optimize system performance in each area of the stadium, delivering clear and balanced coverage in the grandstands, on the field and behind the goals. Highly weather-resistant JBL AWC129 compact loudspeakers provide additional support for fans sitting beneath the roof of the upper deck.

Every component in the system is centrally controlled via BSS Soundweb London BLU-100 and BLU-50 audio processors, and HiQnet-integrated Crown CTs 1200 power amplifiers. For mixing, Mahajak equipped the stadium’s control room with a Soundcraft M-Series analog console, which offers intuitive audio control over live microphones and music playback sources during matches.

The Impact:

“We required a customized audio solution for the new stadium that would deliver consistent coverage and vocal clarity for announcements and music performances,” said Tanawat Nitikarnchana, Vice President, Ratchaburi Mitr Phol FC. “Mahajak supplied us with great customer service and a state-of-the-art HARMAN system. We’re highly satisfied with the HARMAN system, which provides exceptional audio quality and perfect coverage, no matter where you are in the stadium.“
