French horse racing course opts for Nexo sound system
AV technology specialist Manganelli has installed a Nexo sound system at the Hippodrome Deauville-La-Touques horse racing course in France.

The system designed using Nexo’s NS-1 configuration and prediction software consists of 10 Nexo P8 point source speakers covering the stands and a similar number of the larger P10 cabinets addressing the lawned areas in front of the stand up to the edge of the track. Cabinets and mounting brackets are finished in a custom paint colour to match the underside of the roof, allowing the system to blend in seamlessly with the design of the stand.

François Gazagnes, directeur general of Manganelli, said: “There are a number of reasons why we chose Nexo P+ Series for Deauville.

“First, we needed an IP54-rated speaker that can withstand the weather in an exposed coastal location. Then, the variable horn directivity gave us the 100° X 100° HF coverage we needed for the bleachers and 110° X 60° for the track. Finally, the speakers fitted perfectly into the design of the stand and were very easy to install, thanks to the quality and versatility of the mounting hardware.

“In the end, we achieved an optimal and uniform coverage of the space thanks to the power, frequency range and directivity of the P+ Series speakers, along with excellent intelligibility.”
