Poland - Tommex Żebrowscy Sp. J. has recently completed the design and installation of the audio systems for the new water sports facility - Zatoka Sportu - at the Academic Sports and Teaching Centre of the Technical University of Łódz.
Tommex designed the main pool area system using EN 54-24 certified loudspeakers. Twenty-three Community R2-94Z-EN are used for the 1,700 capacity spectator grandstand, with a further five R1-66Z-EN covering the pool itself. The system’s control room houses a Dynacord CMS 1000-3 mixer and the Community DSPEC226 digital loudspeaker processor.
Marcin Zimny, the commercial director of Tommex, explained the sound system: “With high humidity and difficult acoustics, we chose Community R Series loudspeakers. Their extreme all-weather ability can handle the humidity long-term and their accurate coverage patterns enabled us to design the system with well-controlled sound to the areas needed, whilst substantially avoiding reflective surfaces.”
Tommex chose g + m electronics’ BO-CD amplifiers to power the loudspeakers and a combination of wired and wireless Sennheiser microphone systems to provide operational flexibility. The system incorporates a Bosch LBB 1968/00 feedback suppressor and Genelec loudspeakers for control room monitoring.
Tommex also provided a portable underwater sound system, which can be deployed for classes and events such as aqua-fitness and synchronized swimming, and the public address throughout the corridors, halls, toilets, lockers and technical rooms of the venue, to allow for efficient communications and evacuation in case of emergency.
Zimny concluded: “Like any modern sports sound system, it has to deliver clear speech for communication and commentary, and entertainment quality for music. Having installed Community R Series in numerous indoor and outdoor venues, we know we can count on them to deliver both audio performance and long-term reliability.”
