TiMax SoundHub-M at Museum aan de Stroom
As one of the foremost AV technology install specialists in Belgium, FACE were next approached by Antwerp’s new €33.5m Museum aan de Stroom (MAS) museum and systems integrators AV Studio to implement special ‘experiential’ surround sound environments, using TiMax spatialisation and playback.
“The idea was to create a ‘Wake Up’ room on every floor - a room where the visitor could feel, hear and see the central theme of that particular floor,” explained FACE Sales Manager, Steven Kemland. “In-house composer Eric Sleichim created soundscapes and music for every floor.”
On the 7th floor (themed ‘Life & Death’) where the soundscape’s principle focus was to achieve high impact and immersivity, a 32-channel TiMax2 Soundhub-S32 was used as a 20 channel playback server and surround processor to distribute to 18 Martin Audio AQ6 enclosures and two concealed WS18X subs, with all loudspeakers driven by Powersoft M and K Series amplifiers.
In addition to its onboard sound effects playback and showcontrol interfacing, TiMax provided parametric EQ on inputs and outputs for source sweetening and room tuning, plus assignable control Groups for multi-zone level trimming and source mixing.
