JBL Professional Loudspeakers Highlight World-Class Sound Reinforcement System At O2 Arena

LONDON, ENGLAND, 9 September 2007 — Showcasing the power and directivity of JBL loudspeakers across numerous product lines in one of the highest-profile installations of the year, systems integration firm Millbank has recently completed the design and integration of the loudspeaker system in London‘s O2 Arena. Originally known as the Millennium Dome, the O2 Arena seats a capacity of 20,000 and will host a variety of events, including concerts and professional sports.

The O2 Arena is the first venue specifically built for music in London since the Royal Albert Hall in 1871. Its design is largely modeled after the Staples Center in Los Angeles, with a versatile seating design allowing for easy reconfiguration of the seats to suit specific events. Construction began in 2003 and the Arena officially opened on June 24, hosting Bon Jovi in concert.

The massive JBL loudspeaker system includes 12 clusters of three PD5322 loudspeakers hung in a circular truss above the middle of the space. Above this truss are six clusters of four JBL ASB6128V loudspeakers, providing low-frequency output. Additionally, 12 VERTEC® VT4888 midsize line array loudspeakers are hung in two arrays of six to provide delays for concerts. Another 12 JBL AM6200/64 loudspeakers provide outer delay to the upper tier seating. The entire system is powered with Crown CTs Series amplifiers, with BSS Soundweb London processing.

“The installation of JBL VERTEC, PD and AE Series loudspeakers at the O2 Arena is a high-profile example of JBL‘s ability to provide a wide variety of solutions, and for loudspeakers of different JBL product lines to operate together seamlessly,” said Jon Sager, Director of Installed Sound Market Development, JBL Professional. “The versatility of the sound system matches the Arena‘s versatile design, and audiences will benefit from the flexibility, power and precision of JBL loudspeakers for years to come.”
