Soundking's Soundking, Cadac two brands, with the best quality products for the Olympic Sports Center project escort, using a total of nearly 100,000 meters of cable, 72 line array speakers, 29 full-range speakers, 4 subwoofer speakers, 12 underwater speakers, 8 waterproof sound column, 4 sets of mobile speakers and 30 interface boxes.


BIM and professional technology are used for the whole project. The construction process is controlled in real time through detailed analysis of the installation environment, reliability tests of the hanging structure and connections, and tests of the rust resistance of the wire rope under soaking conditions.


Adopt advanced and reliable DANTE network and digital-mode dual backup system. It meets the demand for large-scale and long-distance transmission of the system, and the equipment supporting the transmission of digital audio signal network can reach dozens or even hundreds of units to realize the interconnection of digital signals between equipment.


Standardization of construction process. Adopting board number and port number, the identification method of pinyin and numeric numbering can quickly and accurately find the corresponding ports and cables, which is easy to use and maintain.


Ningbo Olympic Sports Center Gymnasium has a construction area of 47,449 square meters, with a seating capacity of 13,000 seats, 5 floors above ground and a height of 42 meters, including two functional blocks: the main gymnasium and the secondary gymnasium. The main stadium is capable of hosting domestic and international events, as well as cultural performances. The secondary gymnasium is used as a warm-up for games or for regular practice, with two courts to meet the warm-up needs of basketball and volleyball games.

The speakers in the venue are designed in a zoned sound reinforcement mode, six groups of imported B & C custom units consisting of dual 12-inch line array speakers for the audience for zoned sound reinforcement, six coaxial speakers TS66 for the venue sound reinforcement. TS-SUB ultra-low frequency combined array pointing design, can control the low-frequency dispersion pointing mode, so that the upper part of the low-frequency beam attenuation lower superimposed to reduce the low-frequency resonance phenomenon over the stadium.


Dual 12-inch line array speaker G12 using four-way drive external crossover system. Provides a frequency range of 50Hz-20kHz. Two 44mm (G12), 76mm (G12N) tweeter compression unit, four 6.5-inch midrange units plus two 12-inch bass paper cone units constitute a dynamic margin of great combination, and greatly reduces the weight of the cabinet, providing a very high sound pressure / volume ratio.

The 12" low/midrange section uses a pair of 300W (G12) 700W (G12N) 12" paper cone woofers. The midrange section consists of four high-sensitivity 6.5" midrange units with midrange phase plugs installed on the midrange surface to improve directivity and increase sensitivity at the high end of the midrange, while greatly reducing distortion and creating a low-curvature wavefront surface. The high-frequency section uses two 44mm (G12) 76mm (G12N) composite membrane compression units, through a plane wave converter to convert the high-frequency acoustic waveform from spherical waves to equal-phase plane waves, greatly reducing the high-frequency interference effect, so that the sound clarity at a distance greatly improved. At the same time combined with a 90-degree exponential curve constant directivity toward the horn, producing a consistent wavefront surface.

Soundking quality coaxial speaker TS-66 by a B & C imported unit of 15-inch low-frequency paper cone speakers and a 3-inch neodymium magnetic high-frequency compression driver, horn cabinet design, woofer and tweeter coaxial installation, tweeter horn coverage angle of 60 ° (H) X 60 ° (V). In order to give full play to the performance of the speaker, the speaker internal crossover, through the external digital audio processor crossover optimization. Made of glass fiber reinforced plastic CD constant directional tweeter horn, the tone is delicate, good sense of sound image. The enclosure is made of high quality imported 18mm birch plywood, embedded slot structure, good rigidity, no sound staining. The speaker is designed with 16 M10 flying points, and the exquisite angle iron inside the cabinet ensures the safety and reliability of hanging.

"For the sound reinforcement of mega stadiums with more than 10,000 people, sound clarity and system safety are the two main points of successful sound reinforcement design. Sound field design using neither centralized nor decentralized zoning sound supply method, because both ways have their advantages and disadvantages. We used six groups of line arrays for not far from the partitioned sound supply method, both to ensure the direct sound ratio to improve the clarity, while the sense of orientation of the sound also has a certain contribution. In addition, in terms of security design, the system link can not have major security risks, the signal process can not have a security bottleneck. So we use digital and analog dual-stage backup, decentralized DSP design, hot backup amplifier these techniques to improve the absolute security of the system. After overnight debugging, the main array tone is more balanced and natural, the audience direct sound ratio is high, the stadium sound field is quite uniform, for such a large volume of the stadium, its sound system sound quality has been very difficult. The sound texture is better and can give the audience an unprecedented beautiful listening experience."  Lang Jun, the sound reinforcement system designer of Ningbo Olympic Sports Center said. He has presided over the design of sound amplification projects such as theatres and concert halls in nearly 100 large stadiums and gymnasiums. He is currently the Director of Engineering and Technology Center of Soundking Electro-Sound Co., Ltd., the Director of Technology Center of Shanghai Central-America-Asia Electro-Sound Equipment Co., Ltd., the stage audio expert of China Academy of Performing Equipment Technical Association, and the expert member of the Acoustic Professional Committee of China Stage Art Association
