Denmark’s Cinema Apollon installs Dolby Atmos with Crown amps

July 23, 2013

The Cinema Apollon in Struer has installed the first Dolby Atmos surround-sound system powered by the first of Harman’s Crown DriveCore Install (DCi) Series amplifiers in Denmark.

Dolby Atmos employs overhead loudspeakers as well as traditional surround speakers to create an enveloping sonic environment. The Cinema Apollon is features the CP850 Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor.

Harman Professional distributor LydRommet Denmark worked closely with Danish theatre design firm AVC Kino Digital and Dolby technical staff in London in designing and specifying the system for the 180-seat Dolby Atmos theatre. The system had to meet specific Dolby Atmos criteria, including maximum SPL levels for every speaker in the installation. LydRommet Denmark supplied the Crown DCi analog amplifiers and JBL loudspeakers and subwoofers.

The Crown DCi analog amplifiers in the Cinema Apollon include DCi models 8|300, 4|600 and 4|300. The amplifiers power an extensive complement of JBL loudspeakers including JBL ScreenArray® 3732 main speakers and 4642A subwoofers, 42 model 8350 cinema surround speakers and two JBL 4645C subwoofers that provide additional low-frequency reinforcement at the rear of the theatre.

The Crown DCi analog amps were specified for their ability to deliver clean, powerful sound from a compact design only 2U rack spaces high, noted Flemming Bjerke of LydRommet. “The Dolby Atmos specification requires 105dB peak SPL at the reference point in the theatre, and one of the biggest challenges we had with the system was achieving this spec with enough headroom,” said Bjerke. “DCi is such a high-quality amplifier range that it is a perfect match for Dolby Atmos.”
