Dynacord: Swiss Soccer Stadium Sound!

Germany delivered a four nil victory over European Championship hosts Switzerland at St. Jakob Park Stadium, Basel, on March 26th; an equally impressive performance was turned in by the stadium’s DYNACORD sound system, installed in 2001 and expanded in 2006.

The March 26th soccer friendly between the German national team and European Championship hosts Switzerland provided a litmus test for more than just the players involved. The stadium facilities were also under the microscope, and the DYNACORD sound system—along with the German team coached by Joachim Löw—demonstrated it was in the finest fettle over the course of the ninety minute game, with the opening whistle for the championship now only three months away. For the Swiss, dominated throughout and going down four nil, it was a less happy occasion – though the sound system’s superb performance may have provided some consolation!

Tycon Integrated Systems AG installed the lion’s share of the 38,500-seater stadium’s extensive audio system back in 2001. Then as now, DYNACORD V12-60P loudspeakers are at the centre of the sound reinforcement concept. The two-way coaxial boxes cover a nominal frequency range of 100Hz-19 kHz, and are equipped with a 12? chassis for the low frequency range and a 2? driver for the treble. Since the V12’s low midrange is also horn-loaded, the system achieves magnificent projection and excellent intelligibility — something the spectators in the packed St. Jakob Park Stadium certainly appreciated.

Complete coverage is achieved via distributed clusters of two and four V12 boxes flown from a special structure in the stadium roof. The main systems serving the first and second tiers are separately adjustable. When a third tier was added to the side grandstands in 2006, Tyco installed a further thirteen V12 systems to ensure equally excellent coverage for the spectators in the new seating areas.
