LSS install tour coach audio system

Leamington Sight & Sound (LSS) have designed and fitted a customised, in-bus, personal audio system into the Wolverhampton Wanderers FC tour coach.
The coach, a Scania Irizar, is owned by Wolverhampton-based Price Travel and leased to Division One team Wolves, who use it for all their away games, reserves and youth matches.
In its ‘down’ time, Price Travel utilise the bus for a variety of other VIP and sporting events – including the Ryder Cup. The bus recently underwent a total refit, for which Price wanted the sound system updated, and a state-of-the-art personal entertainment system installed onboard to maximise the comfort and experience for occupants.
LSS’s Ian Potter was approached by B & M Coaches in Coventry, the appointed re-fitters, who oversaw the vehicle’s refurbishment. They needed a specialist audio company to undertake that element of the job.
Although this type of project was a first for Potter, he drew on his extensive knowledge and experience of installing sound systems into gyms, health and fitness centres and sports venues.
Treating the coach as like a multi-station gym, he specified a Cloud Pump Station 16 (8 inputs and 16 outputs) for the headphone system, which is run in tandem with a Cloud Substation 16 to give the required 32 outputs – one for each seat.
Each seat has an individual Cloud Personal Control Unit and receives audio from CD, DVD, Video, Television and radio sources – fully selectable by the occupant.
LSS also installed a television tracking device onboard the bus so TV channels can be maintained while the coach is in motion.
LSS used Cat 5 cabling throughout. Their biggest challenge was ensuring the wiring remained neat and tidy, greatly aided by the fact that the bus was dismantled for the full refit at the time, so the LSS team were able to conceal the cabling in the vehicle’s superstructure, utilising the existing cabling channels in its seats and walls.
Price Travel are delighted with the results, commenting that it’s one of the best and most versatile in-vehicle sound systems they’ve heard.
