Powersoft, NION, chosen for Arnhem GelreDome upgrade

Powersoft amplifiers and a Peavey MediaMatrix NION system recommended by TL Audio to replace original amplification and control network at GelreDome, writes Erica Basnicki.

TM Audio has completed a major audio upgrade at the iconic GelreDome arena in Arnhem, the Netherlands, replacing the original amplification and control network. Nearly 70 Powersoft 3904 two-channel 1U amplifiers now drive the GelreDome’s main audio system, with a new MediaMatrix NION system in control. TM Audio – who installed the original PA system in 1998 – was called back to recommend both new amplifiers and a major upgrade to the audio network. TM Audio project manager Olaf Landzaat commented: “We decided to use a NION MediaMatrix system for the control, matrix, and DSP power for routing. We were also looking for a reliable amplifier to deliver a lot of power in a small space, with integral DSP and networking, so that it could handle any future loudspeaker system. The end of that thought process was to use the special abilities of the Powersoft Class D Duecanali amplifier – it can deliver two times 1950W at 4 ohms, so you can basically connect any speaker you want to it, in just 1U of rack space, and with their switch mode power supply and Powersoft’s other technologies it sounds superb.”
