Milan, Italy (April 27, 2015)—One Systems direct weather loudspeakers were recently installed on the Milano Cadorna commuter railway station located near the Castello Sforzesco in Milan, Italy.
The original station, which was opened in 1879, was destroyed during the bombardments of the city in World War II. In 1999, the current structure was completely restored. The new sound reinforcement system is utilized in conjunction with promotional messaging and music provided on video screens located throughout the station.
A total of 18 106IM/100 loudspeakers and video screens have been installed at the railway station. Milan-based Etabeta Electronics spearheaded the design of the new system. Vidimax, located in nearby Cesano Boscone, was tapped for installation.
“The 106IM provides the exact coverage and SPL we were looking for,” explains Danielle Santini, owner of Etabeta Electronics. “Plus, there are all of the advantages that One Systems products provide – resistance to humidity and low/high temperature. The station is open and therefore requires durable yet still sonically pleasing outdoor loudspeakers.”
The project, which is being completed in stages, will also include the installation of ten One Systems 103IM/100 loudspeakers and four 208CIM/100 loudspeakers. All of the loudspeakers will receive the same audio feed as the 106IM/100s. The 103IM/100 loudspeakers will be distributed to reinforce the system while the 208CIM/100 will be paired with larger video screens for greater audience impact.
“The goal is to provide commuters with entertainment and information throughout the station,” adds Santini. “The variety of direct weather loudspeakers One System offers incredible flexibility when designing a system. The fidelity and vocal clarity of their products is exactly what this train station requires.”
