Harman audio solutions selected by Chunhyang Culture and Art Center, Korea

To achieve sound quality and coverage throughout the Chunhyang Culture and Art Center, TechDataPS selected and installed JBL Professional, Crown and Soundcraft audio solutions.

As a multi-purpose artistic space in Namwon––the birthplace of the Korean traditional folk music Pansori––the Chunhyang Culture and Art Center highlights the unique character and culture of Namwon, a city founded more than 1,000 years ago. With a land area of 10,604 square meters and a total floor area of 4,410 square metres, the three-story venue features a 778-seat grand performance hall.

TechDataPS reported that the client requested a full overhaul of the venue’s audio system for greater coverage and output across all floors. To meet these goals, the installation team enlisted JBL VTX series speakers, Crown amplifiers and Soundcraft mixers.

Through pre-simulation, analysis and adjustment, the TechDataPS team achieved uniform sound distribution throughout the entire space. After removing the existing point source speakers on the second floor, the team installed JBL VTX A8 line array speakers with 110-degrees dispersion on both the second and first floors. Additionally, JBL VTX B18 subwoofers reinforce the system’s low end.

These speakers will operate in tandem with the venue’s existing JBL PRX400 series and AM series speakers, which the installation team repositioned for stage and backstage monitoring. For the backend, Crown I-Tech 4x3500HD amplifiers provide sufficient output for the entire system, while a Soundcraft Vi2000 audio mixer offers simple controls and programming.

A spokesperson for the Chunhyang Culture and Art Center noted how the venue required a high-end audio system to deliver a world-class sound for the wide range of performances throughout the year. They selected the A8 speakers to achieve that goal, and they are very satisfied with the new system overall.
