Philippines - The New Clark City Athletics Stadium is an Olympic Grade Class 1 multi-purpose stadium located at New Clark City in Capas, Tarlac, in the Philippines.
High-profile events hosted recently by the 20,000-capacity venue have included the athletic events and closing ceremony of the 30th Southeast Asian Games and the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2020 ASEAN Para Games.
The Athletics Stadium’s architecture with its hinged roof, which takes inspiration from the crater of the country’s Mount Pinatubo volcano, now hosts an impressive new Outline Stadia PA system composed of 30 loudspeaker enclosures powered by eight Outline GTA Otto (Dante) power amps, installed by Amigo Entertainment Technologies, Outline’s distributor for the Philippines.
Amigo also installed an Outline Stadia PA in the New Clark City Sports Hub’s IAAF-certified Class 1 Aquatics Centre, designed by Philippine architects Budji + Royal and adjacent to the Athletics Stadium.
Amando Nieva Zamora, chairman and CEO of Amigo, states, “Throughout our years of intensive research and growth in our industry, we have developed a premium line of products and services to suit every client’s needs and now supply audio, video, lighting, sfx and sports facility equipment, as well as providing services such as AVL integration, software development and electrical design & installation.”
The stadium’s PA system is formed by Outline Stadia 100 LA enclosures. Zamora continues, “To handle this key project, which featured some challenging aspects, such as the fact that the building consists almost entirely in acoustically reflective products such as steel and glass, we decided to install an Outline rig for the Italian manufacturer’s proven leadership in the audio field and the fact that we are familiar with the systems’ superior quality, thanks to fundamental feature for a venue of this class, type and size, such as their high intelligibility and extreme precision, even when very long throws are involved.”
Another high-profile installation featuring Outline Stadia enclosures is in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg, where the Ekaterinburg Arena football stadium (2018 World Cup stadium and the home ground of Russian Premier League football club FC Ural Yekaterinburg) is equipped with 121 Stadia modules, forming part of a rig with a total of 223 Outline enclosures.
