Also the home of the F1 circuit Spa-Francorchamps, the RACB Karting Club de Francorchamps in Stavelot, Belgium is one of the largest outdoor karting tracks that is available to everyone. The karting club hosts professional tournaments, offers coaching for the youth dreaming to be the next Max Verstappen, provides business events and so much more.
At the end of 2018, the karting club decided to enlarge and renovate their entire complex. As part of the renovation, a new audio installation was needed to enhance the visitors’ experience even further. For this task, they entrusted the talented installers from Sound 7, which installed a complete AUDAC audio solution throughout the expansive complex.
For the outside areas like the terraces of the bars and the starting area for the karts, WX802/O outdoor universal wall speaker were used. Due to their special weatherproof coating and aluminum mounting brackets, these speakers give a great performance, even in the harshest weather conditions.
The XENO full range speakers, in combination with the NOBA8 compact bass cabinets, provide the guests in the bar/restaurant area with the richest sound experience possible at every frequency. On top of this, they perfectly fit into the area’s modern interior. In the entrance hall and changing rooms, CIRA Quickfit™ 2-way ceiling speakers were chosen for their clear sound and unintrusive design.
An MTX48 4-zone audio matrix ensures the centralized management of the different zones. The main audio source comes from the XMP44 SourceCon™ professional modular audio system with the MMP40 media player & recorder module and NMP40 audio streaming module installed. This enables the staff to play both locally stored and streamed music. The sound system can be managed from any device via the AUDAC Touch™ 2 application or via the MWX65 all-in-one wall panels.
The whole installation is powered by 3 different CAP power amplifiers: the CAP248, the CAP412 and the CAP448.
Whether you’re a professional kart pilot or just want to try karting for fun, the Francorchamps circuit welcomes you with open arms.
