D.A.S. AUDIO DEPLOYED AT STJARNAN F.C. HOME STADIUM

*** The Stjarnan F.C. home stadium ***

Garðabær, Iceland – August 2012 … Located in what many people know as Gardentown, Stjarnan F.C. is an Icelandic football (soccer) club that is part of the KSI Premiere League. For their home games, the stadium had previously used various portable PA systems for announcements. This situation resulted in inconsistent sound quality, creating a most frustrating experience for both the announcers and the fans alike. Recognizing the need for a better solution, stadium management recently elected to deploy a more permanent solution—one that was drawn from the catalog of Valencia, Spain-based D.A.S. Audio.

Garðabær based Northern Lights Audio, a design/build firm specializing in audio, video, lighting, security, and heating solutions for both the professional and residential markets, was contracted to design and install the stadium’s new sound reinforcement system. Þorsteinn Halldórsson, the firm’s owner discussed the project and his reasons for installing the D.A.S. Audio equipment.

“As most events of this nature cater to crowds of about 2,500 people,” explained Halldórsson, “we elected to install four of D.A.S. Audio’s DR-12 2-way, full-range loudspeakers along with two BiDriver Plus systems, which are 2-way, mid-high units designed for long throw applications. A D.A.S. Audio DSP-26 stereo/mono processor handles loudspeaker management duties and D.A.S. PS-1400 stereo power amplifiers drive the speakers.”

Halldórsson reports an announcers’ area was established that also serves as the storage area for the amps, processor, and mixer, which accommodates inputs for a Byerdynamic wireless microphone plus a local microphone. The four DR-12 loudspeakers are equally placed throughout the stadium’s rafters while the two BiDriver Plus systems provide coverage for the outside parking area and the staging –concessions area.

“The current setup was installed in May and already there are plans to expand the system,” Halldórsson says. “Shortly, we will be adding two additional BiDriver Plus systems for the field and the back area. This was a pretty straight-forward installation and I must say that D.A.S. Audio representative Claus Behrens and his team was very supportive. Any questions we had were answered expediently.”

With the first round of the project up and running, stadium management, the announcers, and the fans are all reporting a dramatic improvement in the ability to understand the announcements coming through the sound system. “Sound quality and, in particular, speech intelligibility are dramatically improved,” says Halldórsson. “Both the announcers were very happy to have a permanent sound system installed that delivers solid performance and consistent sound quality. Similarly, Páll Grétarsson, cheif manager of the club and stadium was equally impressed with the expediency of the installation and was extremely pleased with the sound check. D.A.S. Audio’s solid performance—both in terms of the equipment and the company’s support services—was exceptional. We couldn’t be happier.”
