TOPIC: Large Swimming Pool Application

Large Swimming Pool Application 2 months 12 hours ago #41074

Hi there,

I have a project where I have 4 x invisible IS4 Sonance single stereo speakers with 3 Invisible sub woofers alternating across 7 columns in a large basement swimming pool. Driving the speakers I currently have 2 x Sonance DSP 8-130 with digital input cards.

When testing I have found the bottom end and especially 200 - 400 mhz sound really bad due to structural vibrations. The Sonance amps have a 10 band eq but cleaning up the sounds is proving beyond my skill set!

I was wondering if a device such as the miniDDRC and Dirac Live would be able to help out or would this kind of setup confuse it (given that there are essentially 11 speakers)?

Ultimately I would be looking to use a Sonos connect as a source.

Also if the power gets cut does the DDRC remember which input was selected or does it reset?

It sounds like a fun application indeed.. We've never used Dirac Live for a swimming pool but quite few customers been using it for "Auditorium/large venues". It works exactly the same . With 11 speakers, maybe you can group them in zones (i..e. time aligned). Then it's easier to tune..
