High-quality work in Berlin Mitte – with this simple and effective slogan, the Am Hamburger Bahnhof office building in the centre of the German capital is advertising for tenants, customers and interested parties. Situated in the Europacity development area on the Berlin-Spandau canal, right next to the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum for Contemporary Art, the six-storey office building provides space for office units and forum, exhibition and conference applications over an area of around 5,800 m². AV experts from DetailKLANG have equipped one of the conference rooms with a high-quality media technology package that includes a public address system from LD Systems.
SAT G2 for speech reinforcement
The established Berlin planning and installation service provider was commissioned following an invitation to tender by the Swiss engineering and consulting company EBP Schweiz AG. The tender specified an efficient and visually discreet sound system for the approximately 116 m2 large conference area, used primarily for lectures and panel discussions. This led DetailKLANG to choose the particularly compact and reliable SAT G2 installation series from LD Systems.
Working in conjunction with two 8” SAT 82 A G2 W speakers at the head of the long room are two 6.5” SAT 62 A G2 W providing sound coverage for the rear seating rows and areas. Both active speaker pairs are finished in white for discreet integration into the room and are suspended from the ceiling on specially adapted brackets.
Meets all requirements
“The SAT G2 series from LD Systems met the central requirements of the customer and architect alike,” said André Schmidt, project manager and owner of DetailKLANG in summary of the speaker choice. “The focus for the architect was a compact design for the sound components. At the same time, we had to find an installation speaker, which, in combination with the corresponding bracket, was also suitable for ceiling installation. In addition, the speakers had to be active as they would be switched on and off via the Crestron media control and Modbus IP building control systems that we also installed.”
SAT G2 at a glance
The compact SAT G2 series from LD system includes several active and passive installation speakers in different designs and sizes. The SAT 82 A G2 is based on a 2-way bass reflex design and is equipped with an 8″ custom woofer and a 1″ tweeter driver, which are powered by an 80-watt class AB power amplifier. The even more compact SAT 62 A G2is fitted with a 6.5″ custom woofer and a 1″ silk dome with Waveguide and is powered by a 50 W RMS class AB amplifier.
Both speakers feature a wide frequency response and deliver a maximum sound pressure level of 114 dB (SAT 82 A G2) or 108 dB (SAT 62 A G2). Both speakers have protection circuits for the tweeter to protect against overcurrent and a selectable power saving mode that switches to standby when no signal is detected for three minutes.
