Tommex designs and supplies CODA Audio G-Series system for leading Polish music school…
The mission of the 1st and 2nd degree State Music School in Jastrzębie-Zdrój, Poland, is to educate musically gifted children and young people who will become the professional musicians of the future. The School, whose patron is the eminent Polish composer Józef Świder (1930-2014), has 250 students, educated under the supervision of 45 teachers. In addition to learning instruments, the school provides students with the opportunity to take part in choirs, orchestras and ensembles, as well as extracurricular performances and concerts. Study takes place across three interconnected buildings, the latest of which is the School’s new Concert Hall, which opened in early March with a gala concert to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the school.
With a capacity of 362, the 30 x 29m Hall has excellent acoustics, with great attention paid to every detail of its design. The space can be adapted to meet different acoustic needs, and as befits such a cutting edge venue, the choice of audio provision was a very important consideration. The School chose a state-of-the-art CODA Audio system, designed and delivered by leading pro audio specialists Tommex.
Tommex supplied a system based on CODA Audio’s G-Series loudspeakers to deliver optimum performance and reliability. With audiophile-grade neodymium high frequency drivers ensuring extremely low distortion and high peak power, CODA’s G712-Pro 3-way enclosures provide the perfect solution for the Hall. The system is complemented by CODA Audio’s compact U15-Sub subwoofers which guarantee a tight, faithfully processed range of low frequencies. Two-way HOPS8i and HOPS5 high output point source speakers provide coverage behind and at the side of the stage, with compact D5-Cube sets deployed as front fills. A combination of LINUS5-C and LINUS10-C DSP amplifiers complete a fully integrated CODA Audio solution.
The Hall, which has been described in some quarters as being like a small version of the famous NOSPR Concert Hall in Katowice, home to the Polish national Radio Symphony Orchestra, now possesses a next generation audio system which will serve not only the students of the School, but also host concerts by leading artists from both Poland and the wider international community. Gabriela Jaworska, Director of the School comments:
“We are very pleased with the sound system in our new Concert Hall. The CODA system perfectly meets our needs, allowing us full control over the audio and delivering an even sound throughout. Such high quality allows for selective and clear listening to music. We are sure that the system will serve us for many years, providing listeners with a consistently excellent audio experience.”
The Tommex team is confident that this excellent facility, now equipped with an audio system to match, will allow young musicians to thrive and develop their skills in a perfect working environment, while the music they create is heard with pristine clarity by their audience
David Webster, Global Marketing Director for CODA Audio adds:
“Tommex has once again designed and supplied a CODA system which is perfect for the client’s requirements. High quality audio is absolutely essential in a creative learning environment like this, so we’re very proud that one of our systems is at the heart of such an important and prestigious Music School.”
