Eulsukdo Cultural Center, South Korea

The Opportunity

Founded in 2002, the Eulsukdo Cultural Center is a multi-purpose space for visitors to experience various art forms and performances with the natural beauty of Eulsukdo Island as a backdrop. Designed to achieve a harmonious blend between nature and culture, the center features an outdoor performance hall overlooking a stunning sculpture park and the island’s natural beauty, as well as three indoor exhibition areas.

To ensure crystal-clear sound and full coverage in two indoor performance areas, the facility required an overhaul to its audio system. However, the deep balconies in both areas made achieving true tonal clarity for all audience members a challenge.

The Solution

TechDataPS Co. developed a design that achieved immersive, reflection-free sound with industry-leading JBL Professional, Crown and Soundcraft audio solutions.

The new system primarily features the compact yet powerful JBL VTX A8 line array speaker, which provides impactful sound and full coverage thanks to its 110-degree dispersion and mid-frequency Radiation Boundary Integrator design. Additionally, JBL VTX B18 subwoofers reinforce the lower frequencies and feature a patented Slip Stream double-flared exponential low-frequency port design to avoid muddling the system’s overall clarity. Finally, JBl VTX M20 stage monitors with Differential Drive transducers and D2 dual diaphragm, dual voice coil compression drivers ensure isolated and coherent audio for the performers onstage.

For amplification, Crown I-Tech 4×3500HD amplifiers provide ample and reliable output across four channels, making it the ideal choice for the center’s diverse performances and exhibitions. Concluding the setup is the Soundcraft Vi3000 audio mixer, whose 36 faders and four Vistonics II™ touchscreens ensure versatile control and ease of use during performances.

The Impact

Eulsukdo Cultural Center thanked the TechData team and praised the new system’s performance and flexibility. They added that they know the HARMAN solutions will help the center create unforgettable experiences for visitors and audiences of any event.
