Sturdy and directional
Situated to the south of Seoul, Anyang, with its population of around 600,000, is one of the 20 largest cities in Korea. Since 1986, the satellite city has had a large sports complex that includes a football stadium, swimming pool, ice rink and tennis court. A large sports hall was added in 2000. The latter – known as the Anyang Gymnasium – is home to the professional basketball team Anyang KGC, which plays in the Korean basketball league. The hall can accommodate 6690 spectators and is also occasionally also used as a venue for worship events. In 2017, the Anyang Gymnasium was equipped with an ultra-modern new sound reinforcement system from Fohhn: Installer and Fohhn sales partner LNS CORPORATION KOREA decided on Linea Focus systems with integrated Fohhn Beam Steering Technology. Twelve LFI-220 loudspeaker systems for fixed installation were installed in total, with a forward mechanical tilt.
Eight of these loudspeaker systems provide sound coverage for the spectator stands: Three along each side of the hall plus one each per curve. The 2.20 metre long line source systems are used in Two Beam Mode i.e. they generate a second, independent beam in their vertical dispersion range. Both beams are asymmetric, ensuring adequate coverage for every spectator seat in the stands
Two LFI-220 systems installed at the height of the main stand provide direct coverage for the players. Two additional systems are exclusively used to cover the playing area for music and speech applications.
Fohhn expert Ralf Freudenberg was on site for the final project acceptance and also supported LNS in an advisory capacity.
Congratulations on this successful project.
