JBL Keeps Things Simple At Ulsan Complex Stadium

The 19,471-capacity Ulsan Sports Complex in South Korea recently benefited from a Harman Professional pro system install.

Built in 1970, the Ulsan Sports Complex includes Ulsan Complex Stadium, which was the original home of Ulsan Hyundai FC. Today, the stadium is home to Ulsan Citizen FC, which competes in Korea’s K4 professional football league.

Located between the Yaksacheon and Dongcheon rivers, Ulsan Sports Complex also includes an auxiliary stadium, the Dongcheon Gymnasium, Dongcheon National Sports Center, a basketball court, foot volleyball court, futsal court as well as a youth concert hall.

To enhance the fan experience and create an exciting atmosphere, Ulsan Complex Stadium required a state-of-the-art audio system that was capable of delivering exceptional sound throughout the large venue.

Ulsan Sports Complex hired audio integrators TechDataPS Co., Ltd., and Daeseong Media to design and install a Harman Professional audio solution.

TechDataPS selected JBL VTX A8 dual 8-in compact line array loudspeakers. The system also includes an array of JBL all-weather loudspeakers, including AW295, AW595, AWC129 and AWC82 speakers, which feature weather-resistant enclosures.

TechDataPS also installed 305P MkII powered studio monitors, which feature JBLs’ patented Waveguide Technology and allow the stadium’s audio engineers to reference the mix accurately to make sure it will translate well over the loudspeakers.

To ensure optimum audio performance, the system includes BSS BLU-DA and BLU-100 signal processors with BLU Link, while Crown I-Tech 4×3500HD, DCi 4|600N and DCi 4|300N amplifiers power the solution. Further adding to the system’s audio output, Soundcraft Vi2000, Si Performer 1 and Signature 12 mixing consoles offer mixing capabilities with professional, studio-quality sound.

“The client required a system that could deliver reliable, highly articulate sound output. It was also essential that the system maximise sound coverage across the venue, keeping in mind the close proximity of residential buildings,” said a spokesperson for TechDataPS.

“Considering multiple factors including safety, durability and the varying acoustic demands of the venue, we zeroed in upon JBL VTX A-Series loudspeakers.”

“We were looking at a complete renewal of the existing sound setup. Apart from delivering world-class performance, the setup had to meet great standards of reliability, durability and safety. The latter two were especially important factors because of the windy conditions prevalent in Ulsan,” said a spokesperson for Ulsan Complex Stadium.

“We are extremely satisfied with the incredible solutions that TechDataPS and Daeseong Media provided.”
