Fohhn Audio Linea LX-100 line source loudspeakers have been installed at the Sha Tin Racecourse in Hong Kong. Located in the New Territories, Sha Tin is the larger of Hong Kong’s two racecourses, with a capacity of 85,000 including two grandstands and stabling for around 1,260 horses.
The new loudspeaker systems are required to cover the main spectator areas. Used for transmitting commentaries and announcements during race meetings, speech intelligibility is high on the agenda, as is the demand for the systems to appear relatively unobtrusive. Twenty-nine Fohhn Linea Series LX-100 loudspeakers have been installed in the spectator areas, supplied in a special colour to blend with the surroundings. The lightweight speaker systems are based on Fohhn’s hybrid line array principle, combining eight 4in neodymium high-performance low-mid speakers and a 1in compression driver with Fohhn Waveguide system.
Speaker adjustment is carried out via integrated crossover, with an Intelligent Protection Circuit (IPC) guarding against overload. The loudspeakers are also particularly notable for their slim, compact design, making them suitable for integration into a range of different settings. The installation has been organised by Fohhn distributor Shoushan System Integration of Guangzhou, China. www.fohhn.comwww.ssitech.cn
