Mirabel Aquatic and Sports Center, Mirabel, QC

Sports Complexes

The Mirabel Aquatic and Sports Center serves as a brand new state-of-the-art facility for the suburb of Mirabel and surrounding areas around Montreal. Offering a variety of activities such as; a 25 m competitive swimming pool with 10 lanes, a recreational swimming pool, a paddling pool, a slide, and other water games. This space has been equipped with a equally future-proof TOA sound and paging system, ensuring high-quality sound for the surrounding community.


For this new build, organizers behind the aquatics & sports center wanted to implement a system that would be able to project clear and high-quality sound/music across the large portion of the building devoted to the swimming pools. Additionally, they also aimed to install a paging system that would run throughout the remainder of the building, delivering intelligible announcements and communications to staff and attendees alike.


Given the nature of the building’s purpose and use, one of the most prominent challenges for the equipment is prolonged water and chlorine exposure. As such, any equipment being installed in these spaces would need to be able to handle a lifetime of exposure to these elements without expedited degradation. Another challenge of the space itself would be size, reverberation was a serious concern as a poorly designed layout would negatively affect sound quality and the experience of all visitors.


In order to tackle both the spatial requirements, as well as handle elements in an environment that can be disastrous for electronics, the waterproof rated version of the HX-5 compact line array speakers served as the perfect option for such a space. They can be seen mounted above all swimming areas, providing optimal coverage whilst mitigating undesirable reverberation. For paging and internal communications, our F and PC series of ceiling mounted speakers serve as the go-to options for many clients, providing clear and understandable communications across the facility. All of which being routed through 9000 and DA series amplifiers, and culminating into a M-864 digital stereo mixer for ease of access and configuration.


The installation went as planned, with all products being installed without complications. Attendees are welcome to experience the quality themselves through any of the activities held within the facility.

Variable Dispersion Array HX-5
Variable Dispersion Array HX-5
Full area coverage and wider bandwidth sound.
The HX-5 is an innovative modular speaker design that incorporates the best characteristics of the traditional, cumbersome woofer enclosure combined with a CD horn-loaded high frequency driver and the full-range compact speaker enclosure without the drawbacks associated with each type. the HX-5 features remarkably easy to control coverage characteristics including problematic low frequencies and can be installed in a multitude of ways while maintaining a modern, unobtrusive appearance. a system is configured by four preassembled modules with four IF drivers and twelve HF dome tweeters. This configuration allows the variable directivity control and low-frequency dispersion control comparable to use a large constant directivity horn speaker. a choice of 4 directivity angles (15, 30, 45 and 60 degrees) can be employed as needed.
Ceiling Speakers (Wide dispersion type)
Ceiling Speakers (Wide dispersion type)
Expanded listening coverage area through extra-wide dispersion characteristics.
