China’s Handen Culture and Arts Centre is a green architectural dream, strongly characterized by its stunning hybrid concrete and steel ellipsoid structure, which is also built to withstand substantial seismic pressures. 

Even with such a focus on the structure itself, the aural niceties of grand theatre design were not left wanting. A multichannel distributed speaker system installation controlled by TiMax SoundHub was installed to meet world-class performance and event sound reinforcement standards.

Working together with system integrator, Beijing Rangl Audio Co., Ltd, TiMax distributor SWS Hong Kong were well placed to propose a solution best suited to the particular demands and challenges the venue presented. 

For the building’s expansive Grand Theatre space a d&b loudspeaker system was specified in conjunction with a 16x16 TiMax2 SoundHub audio delay matrix for overall system management, zone level control and equalisation, in addition to the all-important TiMax speciality of delay-based localisation.

Over the stage a central d&b Qi1cluster was flanked left and right by further clusters of d&b Qi1 and Qi7 and supported by a combination of d&b B4-SUB and d&b B2-SUBs.  Amplification was provided by d&b D12 and D6 amplifiers.

Meanwhile, 12 d&b E0’s provided fill, with eight d&b 8S as rear fill – amplified again by D6s. Fixed stage monitoring is supplied by 13 d&b 8S, while a further eight cabinets are available as mobile stage monitors.

16 d&b 8S are distributed around the auditorium, with a further 12 supplying the first floor balcony and a further 12 again for the second tier. Ceiling effect speakers are comprised of d&b MAX12 and d&b B2-SUBs. Again, amplification was provided by d&b D12 and D6 amplifiers.

Freddie To, of TiMax distributor, SWS Hong Kong, commented, “The installation has been very successful – the theatre is now able to present productions technologically equivalent or even superior to any show that can be seen in the West.”
