DAS provides reinforcement at JW convention


DAS Audio Latin America supplied sound reinforcement at the recent International Convention of the Jehovah’s Witnesses at the Monumental Stadium of Guayaquil in Ecuador. The manufacturer’s Event-212A line array system was used to ensure the 55,000 people who attended each of the three days could hear clearly. 

Fernando Nanao from the tech support team at DAS Audio Latin America worked with the event’s sound engineer, Jorge Portilla, to design and configure the system. The system design phase took place at DAS Audio’s Miami offices, where the decision was made to run with the Event-212A. A total of 65 cabinets was ultimately employed, split into 13 clusters of five. The clusters combined Event-212A speakers with 90° horizontal coverage and Event-212.120A enclosures, which feature 120° horizontal coverage.

‘The installation was easy and fast, as was the set up of the system,’ said Portilla. ‘The Event line array ran smoothly and delivered quality sound throughout the stadium, despite having a parallel system for the reproduction of simultaneous English.’ 

The simultaneous translation was delivered via point sources in the corners of the stands. The key to the project, therefore, was to endure intelligibility of speech and music throughout the entire stadium, while two languages overlapped. ‘We were actually using the system at a level below its maximum capability and despite this, we obtained a powerful and clear sound throughout all the stadium,’ Portilla revealed.

‘We were all very pleased with the results,’ he continued. ‘The participants at the convention and the organising committee were impressed with the quality and high intelligibility of the sound. The clarity of the speech, the music and the videos could be appreciated from the stands up to the boxes.’
