Community loudspeakers chosen for World Games pool in Poland

As the city of Wrocław in Poland prepares for The World Games in July 2017, the Wroclaw Investment Company settled the tender for the reconstruction and development of the swimming pools in the northwest of the city. Selected as one of the main aquatic venues for The World Games, the Wejherowska Street Pool will benefit the residents of Wroclaw after the Games, with its refurbishment of the existing outdoor swimming pool and the building of a brand new indoor venue.

Tommex Żebrowscy was commissioned to design and install the sound system for both the indoor and outdoor pools, together with the main hall, fitness club and gymnasium, which are combined in the complex. To meet the diverse needs of the venue, Tommex chose a combination of Community’s D Series and R Series loudspeakers.

The audio system operates via a Dante network, which connects three main points; the commentary stand with an Ashly digiMIX24 with Dante card, the main electronics rack, and a sub-rack for the fitness club and gymnasium. All loudspeakers are powered by Ashly amplifiers.

Marcin Zimny, commercial director of Tommex, explained the choice of loudspeakers: “For the main hall, fitness club and gymnasium, we used Community’s D Series DS8 and DS5 loudspeakers. With modern, unobtrusive styling, they deliver outstanding quality, intelligibility and output for their compact size.”

“For the pool areas, Community’s R Series were the clear choice for their power, voice quality, and all-weather capability, essential for the environment of swimming pools, whether indoors or out,” continues Zimny. “Accurate dispersion patterns were also a major consideration in providing even coverage while avoiding reflective surfaces in the highly reverberant spaces. R Series also provides an unrivaled range of coverage patterns and powers, enabling us to select an ideal model for each area. For the main indoor pool, we chose a combination of R.5-MAX and R.35-3896 loudspeakers, with R.15COAX covering the spectator stands. The R.15COAX was also used for all areas of the outdoor pool.

“A world-class venue demands outstanding quality and long-term reliability and this system has been designed to deliver both.”
