Powersoft X4 marks the spot at Thailand’s Chonburi Stadium

Powersoft X4 marks the spot at Thailand’s Chonburi Stadium
Powersoft’s crossover X Series amplifier platform is powering a 40-box speaker system providing sound at the newly refurbished Chonburi Stadium in eastern Thailand.

Chonburi Stadium was built in 2009 to host the 39th Thailand National Games, held in Chonburi in December 2010. The stadium is now home to Thai League 1 football team Chonburi FC, nicknamed the Sharks, who play both domestic and international home fixtures in the ground, located around 50 miles east of Thai capital Bangkok. 

The replacement of the original audio system (the choice of equipment having been driven by budget considerations) was part of an ongoing upgrade of the 13-year-old stadium’s facilities that also included improved lighting, new seats and a re-turfed grass pitch.

Tasked with improving intelligibility for both speech and music, system integrator Asavasopon used Modeler and Auditioner software by Bose Professional (of which Asavasopon is the Thai distributor) to design a new sound system that would deliver clarity and volume across all Chonburi Stadium’s 8,600 seats. 

The chosen set-up pairs 40 units of Bose’s ArenaMatch loudspeakers with six Powersoft X4 DSP + Dante amplifiers. The SI also made use of Powersoft’s ArmoníaPlus control and monitoring software, which is fully integrated with the X Series, to fine-tune the newly installed system.

The system is completed by a Midas M32R Live console and four Electro-Voice ND86 wireless microphones.
