Tommex Zebrowscy Sp. J. has recently completed the design and installation of the audio system for the new Stadion Orla Lódz motorcycle speedway stadium in Lodz, Poland. Speedway is a popular motor sport in Poland and the 10,000 capacity Stadion Orla Lódz is the home of the first league KZ Orzel Lódz speedway team. It is also the fourth speedway venue to be completed recently by Tommex.
Marcin Zimny, the Commercial Director of Tommex, commented, “With our experience we know the products that combine to provide the most effective and reliable systems for this application. Speedway is a very noisy environment, both from the track and the fans, and we rely on Community’s R SERIES loudspeakers to cut through that noise with high intelligibility.”
Comprehensive acoustic modeling was completed by Tommex as a core part of the system design. Stadion Orla Lódz has 360 degree covered stands, allowing Tommex to distribute twenty-seven 90 x 60 degree R.5-MAX loudspeakers just back from the leading edge of the canopy, with R.5HP and R.15COAX loudspeakers providing additional fill and field coverage. “As always with Community, actual system measurements closely aligned with the modeled predictions,” observed Zimny.
The system is operated from an Ashly digiMIX24 mixer, with a ne8800 providing system DSP and 4-channel Ashly nXe1.54 amplifiers driving the Community loudspeakers. Source is provided by Sennheiser wired and radio mic systems and a Denon CD / MP3 player. Tommex also designed and installed the stadium’s g+m elektronik APS-Aprosys voice evacuation system, which is integrated with the stadium’s main sound system. This not only provides for loud and clear voice evacuation, but also zoning of emergency announcements.
“Stadion Orla Lódz is a great new facility for the city and this high-end sound system will reliably allow fans to safely enjoy their sport with audio that provides exceptional entertainment and commentary,” concludes Zimny.
