The Wong Tai Sin Temple in Hong Kong, China is a well-known shrine and major tourist attraction. The traditional Taoist temple is situated on 4½ acres with grounds that feature 3 memorial archways and beautiful gardens.
DinoTech Ltd (Sheung Wan, Hong Kong) was commissioned to design an audio system that would provide intelligible paging and provide traditional background music throughout the interior and outdoor areas. They created a distributed, 15-zone audio system that uses 70 One Systems 103IM, 108IM and 112IM direct weather loudspeakers. The injection-molded enclosures utilize a copolymer material developed for use in extremely harsh weather environments that also offers a high degree of UV protection. The grille assembly is a 3-layer design optimized for acoustic transparency and protection from windblown particles and water.
The 103IM loudspeaker is loaded with a high-frequency driver coupled to an elliptical constant-directivity horn. Its 4-inch woofer delivers extended bandwidth response.
The 108IM and 112IM are loaded with 8-inch and 12-inch woofers, respectively. The loudspeakers are intended for direct-weather outdoor installations, as well as for indoor applications where high vocal intelligibility and musical accuracy are required.
The Wong Tai Sin Temple’s sound reinforcement system is powered by 4 Lab.gruppen C 28:4 amplifiers. A Biamp AudiaFLEX DSP audio platform monitors and controls the 15 zones.
