LD Systems Provide Sound For Buddhist Temple and Catholic Cathedral

2017 has seen not one but two integrators choose the CURV 500 portable array system from LD Systems – for an installation in the International Center for Buddhist Studies on the Spanish east coast and the Cathedral of Santa Maria Magdalena close to Madrid. International Center for Buddhist Studies: “The center’s main room is very spacious and has high ceilings. As such, its natural acoustics are not ideal,” explains Denia Music’s Rafael Torres, who was responsible for the planning and installation of CURV 500 systems in the building. “The Buddhist ceremonies are also very particular, because the Lama speaks extremely quietly and always sits on the floor. Our common objective was

therefore to provide a system that projected the voice efficiently and accurately whilst also integrating discreetly into the aesthetics of the space.”After an extensive demonstration, Denia Music and the centre’s director chose an LD Systems CURV 500 system comprising 12 x pairs of CURV 500 S2 array satellites, 6 x CURV 500 Smart Link® adapters, 2 x CURV 500 iSUBs and 6 x CURV 500 WMB W wall mounting brackets. The entire system is driven by two CURV 500 iAMP Class D power amplifiers. In order to achieve optimum sound dispersion across the large room Denia Music hung individual array components from the ceiling and also installed them on several

several pillars. “The key to this was the CURV 500 satellite’s wide horizontal dispersion angle of 110º,” added Rafael Torres. Cathedral of Santa Maria Magdalena:“The heads at the Cathedral of Santa Maria Magdalena had always complained of considerable acoustic problems and were far from satisfied with the old system,” explains Carlos Miguel Serna, Manager, Grupo Prestige. “The entire area is typically church-like and angular, with a huge ceiling height of 19 meters. So the main problem was ensuring excellent speech intelligibility in all areas.
