Pan Acoustics


Many of our Pan Beam products have been successful and reliable for more than 15 years both in indoor and outdoor applications, nationally and internationally. The Pan Beam series is the first choice for demanding room acoustics.

Together with our contracting entity and on request, we develop special designs and solutions. And we use all components required by the customers’ desires, because we are taking our job very seriously.

Some of the places where Pan Beam products have been installed:

Ice skating on weatherproof sound

Hamburg's cult skating rink appears in new splendor and with a new public address system

In midsummer 2018, one or the other has certainly cooled down, at least in the thoughts of the INDOO ICEARENA in Hamburg's leisure park "Planten un Blomen". While visitors skate in the summer time over the 4,300 square meter track with in-liners or disco scooters, they will had to wait until the middle of November, then the ice skates are strapped in again and it can be hovered over the ice! And this year in the second season after the major refurbishment and some renovations in 2017.

Also the sound system was renewed: The system house Mediasystem from Reinbek near Hamburg provided the installation of a suitable sound system in the INDOO ICEARENA during this renovation for the largest outdoor skating ring in Europe. And that's when Pan Acoustics came in: Media system knows the Northern "pearl weather" and the Wolfenbüttel loudspeaker producer Pan Acoustics finds sound solutions for the acoustically challenging area, whether indoors or outdoors, almost no matter what the weather and temperatures will be. While Pan Acoustics loudspeaker systems effortlessly play music in the garden of the Moroccan Royal Palace at 50 °C outside temperature, they now withstand every Hamburg cloadburst, thunderstorm or stormy rain. Yes, we have to admit, no one wants to skate in such a weather, but it is well known that rainfall is followed by sunshine and then it is a lot of fun, to groove over the ice with good music! Especially on Fridays and Saturdays in the evening, when a DJ warms up the visitors and shows what the new facility can do!

For the ice rink area including the adjoining new restaurant area, Mediasystem installed Pan Acoustics Pan Beam PB 08 sound systems in the weatherproof IP65 version and - to make sure it really rocks - two large sub woofers P-S 118, that ensure a decent bass with a maximum of 133 dB and feel perfectly comfortable with a tailor-made rain cover in Hamburg. The Pan Acoustics Beam Steering Technology allows Pan Beam speakers to evenly distribute sound via DSP control, so the sound is equally well perceived everywhere! If required, individual areas can also be controlled separately. In case of an emergency, this also helps with important voice announcements via the evacuation system to which the PA system is connected.
