Following the first European application of Renkus-Heinz's Rhaon speaker control system at the Dala-Husby Church in Sweden, a further Swedish installation has recently been made at the Romme Trotting racetrack in Borlänge.

Romme Trotting racetrack‘We were called in for an A/V meeting as part of their complete restoration of the horse owners’ room,’ says Robert Nilsson, from Swedish design and installation company DAT AB, which was awarded the design and installation contract. ‘I made a presentation of all the benefits a Rhaon [Renkus-Heinz Audio Operations Network] controlled sound system would have, not only for the horse owners’ room but on also on the whole race track, and he was very quick to agree.’

Nilsson recommended a Rhaon-controlled system for race day commentaries, safety information and background music, but which would also be capable of delivering full-range music for smaller corporate events with user-friendly control. It would also be capable of full integration with the existing Symnet installation.

The horse owners’ room, located within the race track’s main building, is exclusively accessible to trotting race horse owners. It provides an excellent view over the race track’s finishing line through tall windows, and has a relaxing lounge area and a snack bar. The race track owners also use this room for private meetings and company events.

The DAT team analysed the room’s acoustical coverage in Ease 4.3, simulating both coverage and STI. ‘I wanted to go for Iconyx first but after some cooperation with the architect we decided to go for a smaller top speaker and hidden subs,’ says Nilsson.

The final system design comprised compact Renkus-Heinz CF61-2R mid/high cabinets and SG12S-5R subwoofers. ‘We made the final tuning using both EaseRa and SysTune since we had time to play with both the systems. We ended up with a good result and an STI of 0.68 – a result that even we found hard to believe at first.’

‘We are delighted with Robert Nilsson for his solution,’ Racetrack Manager Christer Sjölund says. ‘It includes some presets for us to tailor the sound system to our needs. We will continue to invest in more Rhaon-equipped Renkus-Heinz loudspeakers on the other part of the tracks, as our race track is very large and we have many places to run sound from. I really like the supervision and control functionality that Rhaon delivers.’
