Jyske Bank Boxen Denmark
D.A.S. Audio and ProShop Europe at Denmark's Jyske Bank Boxen Arena
With seating for up to 15,000 spectators, Jyske Bank Boxen in Herning, Denmark, is not only one of the biggest indoor multipurpose arenas in Scandinavia but also one of the biggest D.A.S. Audio installations in the region as well. The Boxen is currently home to the 2015 IHF Women’s World Handball Championship and has also played host to a number of major concerts, sport events and shows since the arena opened its doors in 2010.
Denmark-based audio-visual professionals ProShop Europe has operated and organized many of these events for Jyske Bank Boxen. When it came time to discuss a permanent sound and video cube system solution for the arena D.A.S. Audio professional sound solutions were the obvious choice.
LED screen manufacture Expromo, ProShop Europe and the D.A.S. design department in Valencia worked hand in hand to find an ideal sound and video solution for the arena. The challenge was to design a system that was powerful and yet flexible enough to be easily changed or removed according to the needs of different concert, sport and cooperate events.
ProShop Europe designed a unique combined rigging system where it is possible to elevate the sound and video cube individually. “We always choose the best solution for the customer and this installation with D.A.S. has fulfilled our customers’ high-end sound expectations,” says ProShop CEO Jens Carstensen.
D.A.S. decided to deploy a total of 42 Aero12A active line array systems split into six arrays in order to achieve the best coverage, speech intelligibility and sound pressure level. These cabinets were paired with six high-performance LX-218CA active subwoofers split into two sub arrays. The team installed three arrays with eight cabinets each and another three arrays with six cabinets to provide maximum coverage throughout the entire arena. All systems are controlled by D.A.S. Audio’s DSP-4080 from the control room located about 50 meters from the installation.
“It is a pleasure to work with such a professional team from ProShop and ExPromo and at the same time having “Boxen” now as a reference is a dream”, says D.A.S. Audio Business Development Manager Claus Behrens.
During the next months, at the Jyske Bank Boxen arena will take place several events such as the impressive Yamaha Supercross 2016, the great performance of the Hairspray The Musical or the Iron Maiden concert of The Book of Soul World Tour.
