Dynacord on board Stena Cruise

AUTHOR: Inavate

Saville Audio Visual has installed a Dynacord surround-sound system in a custom built, 100 seat cinema on board a Stena Cruise Ferry. The UK headquartered integrator specified five Dynacord D-Lite D8 speakers, an active D-Lite PowerSub 312, a Biamp MCA8150 multi-channel amplifier and a Violet Audio ADP61 processor.

The Violet Audio ADP61 Studio AV Preamp Decoder was installed to process the surround-sound before being fed to the Biamp MCA8150 eight channel amplifier. The MCA8150 delivers 150Watt per channel into four ohms, which powered the 250Watt, two-way D-Lite D8’s. The D8’s were complimented by the PowerSub 312 active 12“ subwoofer, equipped with an integrated three-channel power amplifier with a total output of 1300Watts. The unusual decision to install an active sub was taken as the PowerSub 312 offered the best size, weight and audio performance and allowed the subwoofer to be sited anywhere in the room.
