Handen Culture and Arts Centre gets TiMax and d&b solution
CHINA: Working together with system integrator, Beijing Rangl Audio Co Ltd, TiMax distributor Sound Works & Supplies Ltd recently supplied a TiMax SoundHub solution for China’s Handen Culture and Arts Centre.
For the building’s expansive Grand Theatre space, a d&b loudspeaker system was specified in conjunction with a 16x16 TiMax2 SoundHub audio delay matrix for overall system management, zone level control and equalisation and delay-based localisation.
A central d&b Qi1 cluster was flanked over the stage by further clusters of d&b Qi1 and Qi7 speakers, supported by a combination of d&b B4-Sub and d&b B2-Subs. Amplification is provided by d&b D12 and D6 amplifiers. Meanwhile, 12 d&b E0 cabinets provide fill, with eight d&b 8S boxes as rear-fill, amplified again by D6 amps. Fixed stage monitoring is supplied by 13 d&b 8S speakers, while a further eight cabinets are available as mobile stage monitors.
Additionally, 16 d&b 8S speakers are distributed around the auditorium, with a further 12 supplying the first floor balcony and a further 12 again for the second tier. Ceiling effect speakers are comprised of d&b Max12 and d&b B2-Subs. Again, amplification is provided by d&b D12 and D6 amplifiers.
‘The installation has been very successful,’ commented Chan Chi Wai of Sound Works & Supplies Limited. ‘The theatre is now able to present productions that are technologically equivalent, or even superior, to any show that can be seen in the west.’
