A virtual press conference from Sound & Video Contractor

Formula One Sound from Community

Singapore – Over 200 Community R-Series loudspeakers provided the sound for the main spectator areas at the first Formula One race held at the newly built Marina Bay Street Circuit in Singapore. The event was the 15th round of the 2008 FIA Formula One World Championship and also the first night-time event in Formula One history. The timing of the night event meant that it could be broadcast live at a convenient time for European TV audiences. The sell-out event attracted around 110,000 visitors who saw Renault’s Fernando Alonso win the historic 61-lap race.

Valerio Maioli SPA were contracted to provide the lighting, CCTV and public address for the event and designed a system using 61 Community R.5-66TZ, 144 Community R.5-94TZ and 12 Community W2-218T to cover the main audience areas.

“With the spectators only yards from the track the loudspeakers had to provide the highest intelligibility with accurately controlled dispersion at exceptional sound levels? commented Community’s John Wiggins. “Long experience with R-Series distributed systems at F1, NASCAR,
Indy Car and other race tracks throughout the world have proved them outstanding, and a reference for this type of large scale, high SPL application. R-Series also meets all extreme weather requirements, and Singapore is one of our established test grounds with its high temperature, humidity and sometimes torrential rain?.

Local construction was handled by Singapore-based Arina Hogan Builders (AHB) and the loudspeakers were supplied by Community distributor Spektra Electronics.
