Dynacord partner Tommex Zebrowscy has equipped the renovated Cultural Center of Sokolow Podlaski in Poland with five Dynacord sound reinforcement systems. Depending on the event, the systems in the auditorium, hall and gallery can be used independently or combined with one another.
Seating up to 377 visitors, the auditorium is a multifunctional venue also used as a cinema. To ensure that the sound quality is always at its best, Tommex relied on a Dynacord Vertical Array system. “The speakers provide high intelligibility and homogenous sound. Due to their vertically arrayed woofer elements, we also have very good control over the speakers’ dispersion pattern. And thanks to dedicated FIR filters (finite impulse response filters), we were able to improve the audio experience even further,” comments Piotr Wosiek, head of Tommex’s office in Olsztyn. In total, the installed solution features two TS 400 speakers suspended on each side of the stage, two TS 100 as front fills and two TS 200 as balcony fills (all Dynacord). To support the main sound system in the low frequency range, two Dynacord PSE 215 subwoofers were built into the stage. The system is powered by four Dynacord LX2200 amps, while two Dynacord DSP 600 controllers ensure supervision and control of the system via IRIS-Net software.
The mobile concert sound systems and monitors
For live music performances, Sokolow Podlaski’s Cultural Center also has a mobile concert sound system at its disposal: a Dynacord Cobra-4 system consisting of Cobra-4-Tops, two Cobra-4-Fars and eight Sub 28s – all powered by three LX 2200 and four LX 3000 amps (all Dynacord). For signal processing, the Cultural Center relies on two Dynacord DSP 600 controllers, which are equipped with FIR filters with individual settings. “Sokolow Podlaski’s Cultural Center wanted a mobile system that could meet multiple needs,” explains Wosiek. While this system will be used mainly for open-air concerts, it will occasionally be added to the auditorium’s system if higher SPLs (sound pressure levels) are required. Piotr Wosiek: “With its universality, the Cobra system allows our client to do just this.”
For smaller events with audiences of a hundred or less, the organisers can also employ a compact yet powerful Dynacord VA 312-100 system with two Dynacord TS 100 speakers and a Dynacord PowerSub 312. All systems can be expanded as needed with four Dynacord AXM 12A monitors for sound on stage.
The hall and gallery
As part of the modernisation, the main hall and gallery were equipped with a sound system consisting of six white Dynacord D 11A speakers and a Dynacord CMS 600-3 mixer. These ensure sound reinforcement for events, which take place in the main hall or gallery.
“To celebrate the completion, the Cultural Center was reopened with a formal ceremony and concerts,” says Wosiek. “On its first day, the systems were really put through their paces with a diverse mix of instrumental jazz, dynamic beats and vocal performances. The result was powerful yet realistic sound with full and even coverage. Everyone agreed that the Dynacord system had done a fantastic job!”
