JBL provides the thrills across CanevaWorld Resort

Harman Professional Solutions recently collaborated with Italian audio integrator Leading Technologies to outfit CanevaWorld Resort’s theme parks with premium JBL Professional sound reinforcement solutions.

First opened in 1984 and located adjacent to Lazise’s beautiful Lake Garda, CanevaWorld Resort consists of an aquatic themed water park, a Hollywood-centric theme park, and multiple concept restaurants.

After several research visits to Disney World and Universal Studios, Fabio Amicabile—CEO of CanevaWorld Resort—turned to Monza-based integrators Leading Technologies to outfit the park with the same types of quality audio solutions found in those American theme parks.

According to Amicabile himself, JBL is the one and only brand of loudspeakers that could bring his vision for CanevaWorld to life.

“I have a passion for the quality, power and emotions that only audio can give,” said Amicabile. “For this reason, JBL products could not be missing in our parks, especially in Movieland, where the cinema makes enormous use of the audio component as the main scenic effect.

“We really spend many hours with the equaliser trying to mix the sounds in the best possible way for every type of need, and trying to avoid overlapping, making the most of and correctly using the speakers and the emotions transmitted by all the audio tracks we use inside the park and which serve to entertain, excite or frighten the audience. Even at home I rely on JBL, and even if this has nothing to do with Caneva World, it says a lot.”

“We’ve had a long relationship with CanevaWorld—we’ve been involved with the audio installations and renovations since 2013,” said Stefano Pozzo, marketing & communication coordinator, Leading Technologies.

The owner is probably JBL’s number one fan. JBL gives him the traditional American sound quality he fell in love with.

“The owner Fabio is probably JBL’s number one fan. He’s loved this brand since the first time he encountered them at the parks in Hollywood and Orlando. He says JBL gives him the traditional American sound quality he fell in love with. Because of this, we’re still in the middle of a long process of replacing every speaker in CanevaWorld with JBL solutions. Fabio won’t rest until he has the sound of JBL in every corner of the park.”

To support concerts and live events in CanevaWorld’s Rambo Arena, the team installed a main audio system of 16 JBL VRX932LA-1 line array speakers and four SRX828SP subwoofers powered by Crown XTi6002 amplifiers.

To enhance the guest experiences at Antares Interstellar space attraction and the award-winning Movieland Park live show, the team installed PRX815 speakers and SRX828SP subwoofers.

CanevaWorld’s main street features six CBT70J1 column loudspeakers, which utilise complex analog delay beam-forming and amplitude tapering to produce consistent vertical coverage without the narrow vertical beaming and out-of-coverage lobing associated with straight form-factor column speakers. The resulting thrust sends more sound toward the far areas of the CanevaWorld main street to make front-to-back sound levels more consistent.

“Because the music and sound effects feature prominently in the attractions, it’s clear that the JBL speakers play a very important role at CanevaWorld,” said Leading Technologies’ live division manager & audio technical support, Danilo Meroni.

“Half of these attractions may be what you see and feel, but the other half is what you hear, and the JBL speakers help to deliver a full and satisfying audio experience. Because JBL has such a large catalogue of speakers for various applications, every audio component can be technically and strategically chosen to offer exactly what is needed in each area and situation.”
