The GYMMAXX Sports Center is a new elite sports and recreation complex for the whole family. The two buildings contain the latest equipment for the practice of various sports, a range of relaxation services and advanced methods for child development.
Located in the center of Kiev, in Pechersk, it consists of two buildings: a 3-storey building with an area of more than 4000 m2 and a second building with a summer park, a gym, a restaurant, a football field, a children's club as well as a huge SPA complex with an area of more than 14,500 m2. Inside these facilities, more than 400 classes are taught per month; Keynote lessons and seminars from world renowend athletes and instructors.
Our partner in Ukraine, VEGA TRADE, proposed an audio solution based on Ecler products.
Sports & Wellness
The requirements of this immense sports complex were as follows:
- multi-zone background sound system with independent level control
- including local audio sources in some areas
- the ability to locally control the volume in the zone (wall panels, tablet / smartphone)
- centralized management of the entire sound system
- sound transmission from / to remote areas via a local network
- use of DLNA to connect wireless personal sources in group / individual classes
VEGA, used two models of Ecler players to meet the requested requirements. On one hand, a dual DUO-NET PLAYER was in charge of supplying background music in the different spaces. On the other hand, 5 ePLAYER1 players were distributed throughout the training rooms allowing the trainers to play music locally from a USB / SD , or playing music from their mobile through DLNA technology.
A HUB1616 digital manager allows to distribute the audio between all zones, and thanks to the pilot panels generated by the systems administrator, the responsible person is able to control the volume, the EQ and the source of each one of them through their mobile phone. In addition, 6 eMCONTROL1 wall panels distributed throughout the rooms offer yet another option for volume control.
The EclerNet Manager project features a MIMO88SG matrix as the brain, with the possibility of controlling the User Control Panels (UCP) supplied by two WPmSCREEN screens, and managing the project through events and presets which facilitate the use of the equipment by the gym's responsible.
Thanks to a DN44BOB interface, a 4x4 analog to DANTE audio converter, the audio distribution between the two buildings is achieved through an Ethernet cable.
The high impedance lines are powered by the HSA300 mono amplifier and the eHSA4-150 multichannel amplifier, while the low impedance lines are supplied by an eGPA2-150 stereo amplifier and an eGPA8-150 multichannel amplifier.
These 4 amplifiers are responsible for powering more than 50 Ecler loudspeakers distributed throughout the different areas of this sports complex:
20 eAMBIT106 2-way wall speakers
16 eUC106 pendant speakers
10 IC8 ceiling speakers
At last, the dance hall required a higher SPL, two speakers and two powered subwoofers from the VERSO series delivers up to 1400W RMS of sound.
