A new partnership with CSTB
In June 2021, FrenchFlair Audio and the CSTB, Scientific and Technical Center for Building, signed a partnership to equip the active acoustic systems Carmen and CarmenCita with AS-8 speakers.
“CarmenCita immerses the audience in a 3D sound space, by adapting the acoustics to the type of performance. On the walls and ceiling, microphones and loudspeakers
are precisely positioned. Reverberation is added to the captured sound, then it is sent back to the loudspeakers. For each type of performance, a configuration is programmed during the installation phase, in order to optimize the reverberation time, tonal balance and sound immersion of the audience,” explains Jan Jagla, a CSTB research engineer.
To develop the commercialization of its systems, the CSTB requested for proposals for an industrial partner to supply professional high-end speakers to match with the acoustic exigence of the systems.
The audio performances of the AS-8, the shallow depth facilitating the architectural integration and the wide possibilities of customization seduced the CSTB, which chose the AS-8 for the exclusive equipment of the Carmen and CarmenCita acoustic systems.
