D.A.S. Sound System a Key Feature in Vitoria’s Buesa Arena

Valencia, Spain – May 2012 … D.A.S. professional sound systems took center stage during the recent remodeling of the Buesa Arena pavilion in the Basque city of Vitoria. The multi-use venue currently seats over 15,000 spectators and is home to Vitoria’s beloved basketball team Baskonia, which has taken Europe by storm after making it to either the Euroleague’s semi or quarter finals for seven years running.

The audio visual equipment – which includes an impressive new scoreboard and a super-charged professional D.A.S. sound system – played a particularly important role in this large-scale remodel. The installation was carried out by Grupo Ingevision (Ekintza) in collaboration with the D.A.S. Sound Projects Department, led by Eva Argandoña. Víctor Catalá from the D.A.S. Audio Engineering Department was on hand for system adjustments and set up, and the project was coordinated by the northern zone manager, Juan José Soto.

The main sound reinforcement system for the stands boasts no less than 40 D.A.S. Aero 12A self-powered line array systems distributed in four 10-unit linear formations, each facing one of the four main stands. D.A.S DSP-2060 digital signal processors take care of the monitoring and management of the system.

Because the Aero 12A line array systems offer such broad horizontal and vertical coverage, they are a perfect fit for this type of facility in which the stands are steeply inclined and the echoes produced by the overhangs (due to their size and the materials used in their construction) present certain challenges in terms of achieving the right sound.

Four D.A.S. BiDriver systems were installed directly underneath the dramatic centrally-positioned octagonal scoreboard to provide optimum sound coverage for the court during athletic and other events. These systems, which deliver superb word intelligibility, are responsible for carrying messages from the organization megaphone to event spectators. These passive systems receive the corresponding signal amplification via the D.A.S. SLA-2600, a switchmode power supply amplifier, while a digital signal processor, the D.A.S. DSP-26, handles the labour and management of these systems.

The combination of the incredible D.A.S. sound reinforcement system and the sheer size and features of the over 140 square metre octagonal scoreboard make the revamped Buesa Arena an ideal space for large-scale athletic events. With improved sound and scoreboard, complete with video capabilities, spectators at this new-and-improved venue are now in for maximum entertainment where not even the smallest details will be missed
