JBL EON® Loudspeakers Provide Audio Horsepower For 2008 Summer Olympic Games At Hong Kong Olympic Equestrian Venue

Demonstrating the versatility and power of JBL EON® series loudspeakers, the Hong Kong Olympic Equestrian Venue (Sha Tin) is outfitted with an EON system for the racetrack area during the 2008 Summer Games. While the majority of the Olympic events are taking place in Beijing, the equestrian events are being held in Hong Kong.

Managed by the Hong Kong Jockey Club, the venue is equipped with world class facilities, including a 100- x 80-meter all-weather sand area capable of supporting 18,000 spectators and a 5.7 kilometer cross-country course. All three events of the equestrian program, comprising Jumping, Dressage, and Eventing, will be organized at the venue.

Additionally, the venue includes air-conditioned stabling for up to 200 horses, an equine clinic, 13 training arenas, a cross-country training track, gallop track, and a bridle path on the Sha Tin racecourse infield. There are four equine cooling stations with misting tents to combat the extreme heat and humidity in Hong Kong.

Dispersed throughout the racetrack area are JBL EON series portable loudspeakers. In total, 14 EON10 G2 portable, powered loudspeaker systems have been installed, providing sound to the competitors, media and Olympics officials located on the field. The JBL EON10 G2 loudspeaker features a 10-inch Differential Drive® low-frequency driver, 125-Watt low-frequency and 50-Watt high-frequency (bi-amplified) amplifiers, and a 3-input mini-mixer. Other Harman components at the Hong Kong Olympic Equestrian Venue include six Soundcraft Compact4 mixers and three Compact10 mixers.
