The innovative Pan 2-Line technology ensures the best speech intelligibility and high musicality - What's behind it? Insights provided by Michael Hünteler.
Mr. Hünteler, what is behind Pan 2-Line? Michael Hünteler: Pan 2-Line stands for two-wire network technology from Pan Acoustics. We make use of the existing cabling of the sound system and put the new loudspeakers on these cables. Not only are the loudspeakers supplied with voltage, but they can even be precisely aligned electronically to the audience without having to move the sound line on the wall.
What are the advantages of this solution? Michael Hünteler: " The loudspeakers simply have to be replaced at the existing position without having to pry open the wall. That's great for historic preservation. In addition, the system is extremely user-friendly and fewer loudspeakers are needed than before.
Speech intelligibility in church services is important, but what about music? Michael Hünteler: Music is also reproduced in top quality. Thanks to the clear operation, up to 5 scenarios such as Christmas (full church) and funeral services (front area) can be easily called up by the church staff.

"The combination of technology, design, cost-effectiveness and the sound and naturalness of a loudspeaker are always in the focus of Pan Acoustics. For many years, the systems from the Wolfenbüttel innovation and development forge have been inspiring me, and now I can be a part of it. Developed and manufactured in Germany - this is a quality seal with which I can fully identify as Sales Director Germany!"
Here we see an example of typical sound reinforcement in a church: a sound line is mounted on almost every column in the nave.
This often leads to the fact that the sound overlaps and the person speaking or singing is more difficult to understand.
In order to provide speech intelligibility, the use of only two longer loudspeakers is often sufficient.
In this graphic example, two line array loudspeakers in the chancel provide sound for the entire central nave. Additional line array loudspeakers can be used for sound reinforcement of the side aisles and transepts and, if necessary, a gallery.
Sound reinforcement systems with intelligent loudspeakers, which can delay the audio signal and adjust its sound, achieve very high speech intelligibility even in acoustically demanding rooms and ensure a solemn reproduction of music. Particularly pleasant: Since the speakers sound from the altar/choir space, the directional reference of the person speaking or singing and their visual sight also match. The voice and the perception of the direction from which it is coming thus match.
The advantages of this sound system:

Without effort, Pan 2-Line array speakers can be installed in a manner suitable for historical monuments. For this purpose, the existing cabling can be used and the building fabric remains untouched.
