Loudspeakers at the Waterpark – Adventure Cove, Singapore

Remarkable photos shared by RockComms in Singapore, of Technomad loudspeakers and subwoofers installed at the Adventure Cove Waterpark (Bluewater Bay).  The water park is part of Resorts World Sentosa which operates
the Universal Studio franchise in Singapore.

In addition to the awesome flying whale sculptures (!) you can see the Technomad Berlin 6040 full range loudspeaker in Desert Sand color, some Oslo 18 subwoofers (originally developed for Disney Imagineering) also in Desert Sand, and pole–mounted Paris 616 loudspeakers.

Singapore presents a tough environment for loudspeakers, with average temperatures around 31º C (88º F) during the day with little seasonal variation. Singapore receives a considerable amount of rainfall – approximately 2340mm (92 inches) annually. The region is extremely humid, with humidity levels usually between 70% and 90%.

That’s just the standard weather – add the corrosive environment of a chlorinated pool and you have an extraordinary challenge for any loudspeaker.  Fortunately Technomad’s military-grade construction and no-compromises audio design is ready to meet the challenge.

Technomad Brings Professional Sound to Cowboy Fellowship Arena

Venue attached to worship facility injects excitement into live events with new advanced audio loudspeakers and subwoofers

BOSTON, April 22, 2013 — The Cowboy Fellowship Church in southern Texas is a unique worship facility that preaches evangelism, discipleship and service — with an adjoining 2800-seat live event venue on campus.  The church hosts a variety of events in the venue, from all-day rodeos and bull-riding clinics to musical performances.

The venue opened in 2012 without a professional sound system, using standard stage equipment to produce and amplify audio.  The church soon hired Buster Burch as facilities administrator, who specified and installed an advanced audio system to cover the entire arena in a more consistent manner.  Burch researched various options and purchased a Technomad Turnkey PA System to ensure exceptional audio quality and long-term durability in the local environment.  The complete system included four loudspeakers and four subwoofers along with a complete audio headend — an unusual combination.

“I wanted to put together a system that looked good, sounded good and would last,” said Burch.  “Our philosophy is that it’s worth putting extra money into something that we know will last a long time.  This system isn’t just for us; it’s for future generations.”

The system is unusual in that each Technomad Berlin loudspeaker, mounted 20 feet off the ground, is accompanied by a Technomad Oslo subwoofer mounted 10 feet directly below.  The Berlin and the Oslo are the most powerful loudspeaker and subwoofer models in the company’s portfolio.

“I had a real desire for bass in this venue, as bass is what suffers the most when you work outside,” said Burch.  “If I am showing a video of a fireworks display, I want everyone in the stands to hear and feel that boom.  The Oslo gives me exactly what we needed out of the bass at the low end.  I’m very pleased.”

Burch adds that the Berlins produce plenty of power, with intelligible voice and full-range musical reproduction.  He notes that the wide dispersion ensures that he can walk the entire length and width of the arena without hitting a dull spot.

“We’ve had several events, and the audience feedback is that the audio is crisp and clear and not overly loud,” said Burch.  “I’ve had people tell me that they don’t hear the normal delay and bounceback common in other arenas.  The system works together as one giant loudspeaker to deliver audio across the entire bleachers.  I have true high-end and plenty of low-end and mid response.  And the sound envelope per speaker is incredibly large.”

Typical venue events include team ropings, steer ropings, bull riding clinics, and ranch rodeos featuring men and women.  Birch adds that the church plans to hold more live concerts moving forward, as well as special events such as Christmas services.

This means that the church also needed a durable sound system to ensure longevity.  Burch evaluated the entire facility upon joining the staff, and quickly realized that weatherproof equipment was required.  A roof provided coverage overhead, but open air surrounding the venue raised concerns.  The requisite combination of durability and high quality audio ultimately led him to Technomad.

“We’re about 30 miles south of San Antonio in the town of Jourdanton, and we get a lot of dust and wind as well as some cold and condensation,” said Burch.  “I like how the drain holes at the bottom of the cabinets expel condensation to keep them dry.  I also used Technomad’s new stainless steel mounts, which are very strong and sturdy in addition to being weatherproof.  They lock in really well and give us flexibility to accurately adjust the angle and direction of each loudspeaker.”

Burch purchased the Turnkey PA System from ProAudio.com of Grand Prairie, Texas.  The complete system included a pre-wired, protective equipment rack with an audio amplifier, six-channel mixer and three microphones; as well as all required cables and connectors to expedite installation.  Burch added a Mackie wireless control board for remote audio adjustments, as well as Sennheiser wireless equipment.

Technomad Introduces OSLO High-Power, All-Environment Subwoofer

Technomad LLC, a leader in advanced loudspeakers and audio systems since 1995, will introduce a new compact, high-power, all-environment 18-inch subwoofer at the 2010 InfoComm Show (June 9-11, Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth C6612.)

» Visit the OSLO Product Page

The Technomad Oslo was developed specifically for the demanding requirements of themed entertainment applications both indoors and outdoors.  It is one of the most powerful subwoofers available due to its very low frequency response (below 40Hz) and high power rating (1200 W continuous).  These specifications combined A high max-SPL rating of 133 dB confirm that the OSLO is a formidable low-bass system.

 

 

The Technomad Oslo Subwoofer
The high-power, all-environment Oslo features a single 18-inch low-frequency driver, making it the only completely weatherproof subwoofer currently available in the 18-inch format.

 

 

The Oslo also offers excellent performance in the mid-size subwoofer class due to its single 18-inch low-frequency driver, making it the only completely weatherproof subwoofer currently available in the 18-inch format.  Technomad will also offer the Oslo in a powered configuration featuring a 1600 W weatherproof amplifier module based on the company’s PowerChiton amplifier technology.

“Technomad is extending its product range for the sound system installation market with a subwoofer that delivers accurate, extended bass and offers outstanding efficiency in a ported design,” said Rodger von Kries, vice president of Technomad.  “The Oslo accomplishes this without the excessive port resonance and ‘one-note bass’ sounds that plague many subwoofers.  Its compact size and portable form factor also make it ideal for applications requiring maximum bass at minimal volumes.”

Though primarily designed for fixed and permanent applications like theme parks and sports venues, the Oslo is also ideal for temporary applications including live sound, corporate audio and theatrical performances.  The design also gives sound engineers and integrators the flexibility to specify and install the Oslo within underground installations and for framing into sets and themed backgrounds.

Like all Technomad loudspeakers and subwoofers, the Oslo offers both outstanding audio quality and 100 percent weatherproof construction thanks in part to IP56-rated protection, proprietary driver treatments and self-draining cabinets.  The Oslo is also available in 14 custom molded-in colors that do not crack or fade in sunlight.
