CRANK Indoor Cycling Studio Takes K-Array For A Spin

A K-Array sound reinforcement system was recently installed at CRANK, a boutique fitness gym in Dubai offering indoor cycling, boot camp sessions, strength training and stretching classes.

Indoor cycling classes need loud music to motivate people to do the best workout. Not disturbing the neighbours during the training is another important factor for a spin class.

For this reason Procom Middle East, K-array’s distributor in Emirates specified an audio solution ideal for a place like CRANK.

Six Python-KP52 cabinets (two at the front, two in the middle and two at the back), together with three Thunder-KMT18P subwoofers, and Kommander-KA84 amplifiers were installed at the fitness studio.

“With the SPL inside the cycle studio regularly surpassing 105dB, the system is really loud and super punchy,” said a Procom Middle East representative.

This particular configuration of loudspeakers was selected for the fitness centre due to their form factor and output. They are effectively able to distribute the sound whilst ensuring that the instructors can still be heard.
