Crown Amplifiers Kick In The Power At Moses Mabhida Stadium In South Africa

Demonstrating their ideal performance for the world’s most demanding fixed install applications, Wild & Marr recently installed Crown amplifiers to power sound at World Cup venue Moses Mabhida Stadium. The stadium also features AKG, BSS Audio, JBL, and Soundcraft components as part of the sound reinforcement system.

Situated in Durban, the new stadium has a capacity of 70,000 and hosted five group games, one second round game, and a semi-final match during the World Cup. The venue is named after Moses Mabhida, a former General Secretary of the South African Communist Party. The stadium’s unique design is highlighted by an arch, which represents the once divided nation of South Africa coming together.

The Moses Mabhida Stadium system installation was handled by South African Harman Professional distributor Wild & Marr and features 74 Crown I-Tech 4000, 36 I-Tech 8000 and 33 CTs 4200USP/CN amplifiers. Signal processing is provided by BSS Audio with three BLU-800 devices, eight BLU-160 devices, six BLU-320 devices and mixing by Soundcraft RM100 series consoles.

Wild & Marr also provided 118 VerTec® VT4888 midsize line array elements as well as 36 JBL AM6315 loudspeakers and over 1,400 Control 24 CT Micro and 100 Control 25AV ceiling speakers. Control and configuration of the system was completed through Harman HiQnet™ System Architect™.

In the area leading into the stadium complex commonly referred to as Peoples Park, 32 JBL CBT100LA column speakers are powered by five Crown CTS8200USP3/CN, with sound processing handled by a BSS BLU-800 device. The area also features a dedicated Soundcraft RM100 console and AKG microphones.
“The World Cup is a global event that transcends the way we view sports,? stated Marc Kellom, vice president of marketing for Crown Audio. “Our CTs amplifiers provide unmatched performance and reliability, setting the standard for the biggest stadiums in the world and the World Cup was no exception.?
