Stuttgart, Germany (October 11, 2016)—Earlier this year, the State Parliament of Baden-Wuerttemberg completed a three-year, $58.6m renovation of its headquarters. As part of that effort, a new audio system featuring Renkus-Heinz digitally steered arrays was installed.
In the plenary chamber, two Iconyx ICL-FR arrays have been built into the back wall behind the committee. The line arrays' digital beam steering is used so that two line arrays provide sound coverage focused into the plenary chamber as well as the audience seating, while avoiding the ceiling, walls, windows and other reflective surfaces. Two PN 212 double-12" subwoofers can be added for music and media performances.
Audio requirements elsewhere in the building are addressed by an additional IC-LIVE line array system, with a pair of ICL-R steerable arrays for mobile use. These systems can also be complemented with two IC212S-R subwoofers for musical events.
In the Parliament building's conference rooms, eight CF-81-FR loudspeakers provide additional sound reinforcement. All loudspeakers are networked and controlled via Renkus-Heinz RHAON software systems.
