Munhak Baseball Stadium, commercially known as SK Happy Dream Stadium, in Incheon, South Korea, has recently undergone an audio overhaul to improve coverage and intelligibility for fans.
The audio upgrade at the 25,000-seater stadium was designed and installed by local audio outfitter Kinoton Korea, which chose a complete Harman networked audio solution to replace the aging previous system.
Fans attending SK Happy Dream Stadium, which is home to professional baseball team SK Wyverns, can expect a richer audio experience, with delivery of announcements clearer and wider than before.
The Harman system installed by Kinoton at SK Happy Dream Stadium features a range of weather-resistant JBL Professional speakers distributed throughout the stadium, including 54 AM7215/95 WRX, 16 AW595, nine ASB7128 WRX, 37 AC26 WRX, 39 Control 26CT and 15 Control 25AV speakers. The entire speaker system is powered by Crown DriveCore Install Series amplifiers. In the control room, microphone and playback signals are mixed using a Soundcraft Vi1 Series mixer, while two JBL LSR305 speakers provide accurate monitoring.
“The stadium owners love the new Harman system – the improved audio coverage really enhances the fans’ experiences during games,” said Cheol Yoon, VP, Kinoton Korea. “South Korea experiences a wide variety of weather as the seasons change, so it was critical that all stadium speakers be weather-proof. The ability to utilize weather-resistant JBL speakers enabled us to provide SK Happy Dream Stadium with a high-quality sound reinforcement system that is perfectly suited to the dynamic South Korean climate.”
