Seven spaces are covered by the loops, and these are situated either next to or on top of each other. The centre Centre Court system is controlled from one of three PA rooms, where the ILD1000G amplifiers that power the loop system can also be found.
“As the amplifiers are housed remotely from the loops, we’ve had to install them all with feed cables using Star Quad cable because of the length of the run,” explained RG Jones’s Jon Berry. “In some cases, we have 120m long cable, but it works very well and there is no cross talk at all. Additionally, everything is backed up by a UPS, so if it the power fails, then it will carry on going with the rest of the PA system.”
