Himmelstalundshallen Is Largest Arena In Sweden to Install HARMAN’s Crown DRIVECORE™ Install (DCi) Series Network Amplifiers

NORRKÖPING, Sweden — Himmelstalundshallen is an indoor arena in Norrköping, Sweden that is home to the HC Vita Hasten ice hockey team. The 4,480-seat facility also hosts concerts and other sporting events. The oval-shaped arena opened in 1977 and even then its audio system would hardly be mistaken for state of the art—making it overdue for an upgrade by Sound contractor Micab (www.micab.se) under the direction of installation specialist Mikael Bergvall. The arena is the largest in Sweden to install HARMAN’s Crown DCi Series Network amplifiers.

“In addition to providing clear, intelligible audio we needed to achieve a system that provided equal coverage at every seating area,” said Bergvall. Working with Christer Lidberg and Jan Hedlund at Swedish HARMAN distributor Septon Electronics (www.septon.se), a system was designed based around eight Crown DCi 4|600N and eight DCi 4|300N networkable power amplifiers. The amplifiers are linked together using BSS Audio Soundweb London BLU-101 and BLU-160 devices with BLU-Link. Twenty JBL AM5215 loudspeakers complete the installation.

Bergvall pointed out that the Crown DCi Network amplifiers offer a number of advantages not available from conventional amps. Having both Ethernet and BLU link connectivity enables them to be easily networked over long distances and “using BLU-link to network the audio system is extremely cost effective.” Thanks to their use of energy-efficient DriveCore™ Technology, the Crown DCi Network amplifiers also use less power and take up less space. “All of these factors are major assets in performance, ease of installation and savings on long-term operating cost.”

The DCi Network amplifiers offer networked monitoring and control via HARMAN HiQnet™ Audio Architect system software, and digital audio connectivity using the HARMAN’s proprietary BLU link as well as analog inputs. In addition to the main system, a Crown ComTech DriveCore CT8150 amplifier is used to power the speakers in the spectator’s entrance.

The JBL AM5215 loudspeakers are hung equally spaced around the perimeter of the arena and aimed into the seats, a configuration that directs the output of the loudspeakers to the seating areas while minimizing reflected sound from the walls and ceiling along with any gaps or overlaps in coverage. The 2-way AM5215 employs a 15-inch woofer and a waveguide that can be rotated horizontally or vertically to facilitate installation in a wider variety of applications.

“The system really came together well and more than met the arena manager’s expectations,” said Bergvall. He noted that the support from HARMAN and Septon was “critical” in ensuring that the system’s components all worked together seamlessly and delivered optimum performance. “The quality of the sound in the Himmelstadlundshallen has been completely transformed. Everyone in every seat now enjoys clear, full range reproduction for game announcements, music and audio.” The memory of the previous sound system is now just a fading echo.

HARMAN designs, manufactures, and markets a wide range of infotainment and audio solutions for the automotive, consumer, and professional markets. It is a recognized world leader across its customer segments with premium brands including AKG®, Harman Kardon®, Infinity®, JBL®, Lexicon®, and Mark Levinson® and leading-edge connectivity, safety and audio technologies.

HARMAN’s BSS Audio, Crown and JBL Professional Provide Acoustic Atmospherics at The Island In Pigeon Forge Entertainment and Retail Center

PIGEON FORGE, Tennessee – The Island at Pigeon Forge is a brand-new entertainment and retail center located in Tennessee’s Smoky Mountains. It’s on an actual island in the Little Pigeon River and offers a wide variety of rides, shopping, restaurants and attractions, with a 132-room hotel to be completed in spring 2014. Providing the audio solution was sound contractor Clair Brothers Audio who installed a system featuring HARMAN’s JBL Professional loudspeakers and Crown amplifiers, all tied together via BSS Audio signal processing components.

Clair Brothers installed the distributed audio system at The Island at Pigeon Forge, which encompasses more than 22 acres. Dustin Goen, Clair Brothers system designer and project manager specified 128 JBL Control 28T-60 loudspeakers for use throughout the facility, indoors and outdoors in the buildings and mounted on light poles. The loudspeakers are powered by a total of 12 Crown CTs Series CTs 2000-LITE, CTs 1000-LITE and CTS 600-LITE amplifiers. Signal processing and distribution is provided by three BSS Audio BLU-800 processors, a BLU-320 I/O expander, a BLU-100 12 x 8 signal processor and three BLU-8v2 wall controllers. The amplifiers are connected to the BSS Audio components via CobraNet, using PIP Programmable Input Processor modules that are installed in the amps.

The Crown amplifiers and BSS Audio components are housed in four distributed audio equipment rooms, all tied together with fiber cable. The tech staff can monitor and control all the amplifiers using a customized page in the HARMAN HiQnet London Architect™ system control and configuration software. Each of the equipment rooms has remote inputs and paging, enabling staffers to distribute inputs across the park or page specific areas.

“Although it covers a large area, we were able to test the entire system in the shop before we brought it to the site and configure and tune everything onsite in two days,” said Goen. “We chose the JBL Control 28T-60 loudspeakers with WeatherMax grilles because of their combination of sound quality, power handling and durability, which is obviously of prime importance in an outdoor installation where they’re also going to be used day in and day out.”

Goen continued, “The BSS Audio BLU devices are my go-to digital signal and networking processors because they offer tremendous flexibility and total reliability. These qualities, along with their ability to connect all the amplifiers on the same network using a single software package made them the obvious choice.”

“We have been pleased with the results from Dustin and his team’s hard work on this project. Everything has been working well thus far, and sound quality we now have throughout the property is excellent,” added Beau Berni, Director of Operations, Pigeon Forge Entertainment and Retail Center.

HARMAN Professional Releases JBL HiQnet Performance Manager™ Version 1.7, Adding Support for JBL VTX F Series Loudspeakers

FRANKFURT, Germany – HARMAN Professional today introduced the latest iteration of its comprehensive software for live sound system configuration and control, JBL HiQnet Performance Manager™ version 1.7. New to version 1.7 is support for JBL’s VTX F Series loudspeakers, new circuiting functionality, plus a host of other new capabilities.

JBL HiQnet Performance Manager is a true workflow-based user experience for designing, deploying and controlling any configuration of HiQnet live performance system that offers touring and live sound professionals reduced design time, simplified networking, and an automated interface configuration.

Version 1.7 features new circuiting functionality that allows for automatic mirroring of delay, bandpass gain, circuit level attenuation, and limiter reduction. It also affords the ability for center stacks to mirror their circuit configuration. With the new functionality, circuits for ground stacks on-end are built in an onstage to offstage fashion and HARMAN’s Crown VRACK amplifier channels are now automatically associated with sub bandpasses by using channel 1 of all three amps before associating with channel 2. The functionality also separates the circuits of cardioid subs so non-consecutive circuiting and more economical triplets can be created.

Additionally, online matching now has the option of preserving physical devices addresses and making the virtual device in Performance Manager receive the HiQnet address from the networked device. The update also features substantial changes to ground stack templates: it is now possible to select any number of column or row stacks, while selecting an odd number of ground stacks on-end will create a center stack that circuits inside-to-out within itself.

When in “Amplify Mode” users now have the capability to make associations directly by dragging speaker bandpasses to amplifier channels or vice versa. Version 1.7 also features a new ‘auto’ VRACK wiring mode option within the Array Configuration dialog. This allows Performance Manager to automatically decide the most economical use of VRACKs and can be used instead of the advanced tab for complex scenarios.

“Today’s introduction features improvements that are a direct result of input from our users,” commented Paul Bauman, Associate Director, Tour Sound, JBL Professional. “Version 1.7 further enhances Performance Manager’s ability to simplify complex system configurations and guide professionals and even those with less experience to optimize the performance of JBL tour sound products.”

Performance Manager is available for purchase via license key on the HiQnet website: hiqnet.harmanpro.com
