Monastery church Saalfeld

Monastery church in Saalfeld with directive sound


Acoustic challenge solved respecting monument protection

In 1265, the Franciscan monastery in Saalfeld, Germany, was mentioned for the first time. In the course of the Reformation, the Franciscans left the monastery and the town in 1534. Over the following centuries until the World War I, the monastery was used as a school; today it houses a museum, among other things.

The Franciscan monastery has been almost completely preserved and is one of the most important architectural monuments in the state of Thuringia. It has been completely renovated and is now in public use. The town of Saalfeld was awarded the Thuringian Monument Protection Prize for this project in 2000.

The monastery church with its baroque ceiling design has a sound reinforcement system with active, digitally controllable line array speakers from the Pan 2-Line series, which were installed in a manner appropriate to the monument and in especially matched color. The electronics with powerful signal processors direct the sound to the desired audience areas, thus ensuring perfect speech intelligibility. If concerts take place in the monastery church, subwoofers are conveniently switched on.

You can find out more about the project from our partner VST.
