EAW® KF740 Loudspeakers Power Massive World Cup Fan Watch Venue in South Korea

korea1 Whitinsville, MA, USA, July 27, 2010 – The official cheering club of South Korean soccer, “The Red Devils,? named Seoul’s COEX Mall as its official 2010 FIFA World Cup cheer venue. To accommodate the 100,000+ fans, Seoul officials closed off The COEX to automobile traffic and installed LED screens, stages and sound systems. Despite the inner-city venue’s challenges, crowds enjoyed great sound, thanks to EAW®’s critically acclaimed KF740 and KF760 loudspeakers systems.

korea2Elan Korea and TFOS Plus, two leading touring companies in Korea, called upon Chung-Bo Sound Inc., EAW’s Korean distributor, to provide sound for the event. “EAW was used on two of the three stages. We needed to provide an incredibly high-output system that could intelligibly broadcast play-by-play action to the sea of red-faced fans,? stated Hyungjoon Jee, General Manager for Chung-Bo Sound. “These EAW units delivered beautifully.?

To meet the demands, TFOS Plus used EAW’s new KF740, eight per side, all powered by EAW’s UX8800 Digital Processor. Elan Korea, on another stage, deployed an EAW KF760 line array rig consisting of eight KF760’s per side (left and right) and six EAW BH760 Bent Horn Subwoofers per side (left and right). They also used two EAW KF730’s for center fill and 10 EAW SM84’s as monitors, all powered by 12 Lab.gruppen FP1000Q’s.

“Everyone doesn’t just watch the game on TV at home. They go out to the streets to support their teams as a family,? remarked Jee. “The attendees deserve great sound, and we are happy to service them with great EAW loudspeakers. Both Elan Korea and TFOS Plus are great fans of EAW and agree that the equipment is very easy to set-up, especially the KF740.?
