Wat Pathum Wanaram Temple, Bangkok

The Opportunity

Constructed in 1993, Phrarajasatta Pavilion is a beloved addition to Wat Pathum Wanaram, a mid-19th century Buddhist temple in Bangkok. Religious devotees and general public alike use Phrarajasatta Pavilion as a sacred place to conduct daily Buddhist activities, including worship, meditation and dharma practice. After 25 years of service, temple leaders hired audio integrator Mahajak Development to replace their rapidly aging sound system.

The Solution

Mahajak Development upgraded the temple with a complete HARMAN networked sound system, comprised of premium solutions by JBL, Crown, dbx and Soundcraft.

With the objective of providing an immersive sound experience, Mahajak installed a range of JBL, Crown, dbx and Soundcraft solutions. The team equipped the pavilion with 26 JBL Control 25-1 indoor/outdoor speakers, which deliver rich sonic character, wide coverage and consistent dispersion. Its contemporary high-design appearance and versatile mounting features enabled Mahajak to seamlessly integrate each speaker into Phrarajasatta Pavilion. The Control 25-1 is the ideal speaker for houses of worship where the sound quality of background music is essential to the worship experience.

Mahajak utilized a Crown CDi 1000 two-channel amplifier to power the speakers and a dbx DriveRack VENU360 loudspeaker management system for optimize system performance. To ensure professional and polished mixes for events at Phrarajasatta Pavilion, Mahajak included a Soundcraft Signature 22 mixing console, which provides exceptional clarity, dynamic range and a superb signal-to-noise ratio.

The Impact

Houses of worship like Wat Pathum Wanaram require premium audio solutions to provide guests and members of the community with immersive worship experiences,” said Pongsakorn Kanchanachayphoom, Project Director at Mahajak Development. “In order to ensure balanced audio coverage and seamless integration with Phrarajasatta Pavilion’s elegant décor, we selected industry-leading HARMAN solutions which match the venue’s sophisticated atmosphere. The end-to-end HARMAN solution facilitates network distribution and audio management within the place of worship. Because the client was looking for superior audio solutions with reliable customer service, HARMAN was the ideal choice for the project.

We required an audio system that would provide adequate power and quality, and blend in aesthetically with the simple design of our modest venue,” said the spokesperson at the Wat Pathum Wanaram. “We hired Mahajak on very short notice, but they delivered exceptional sound quality with a speedy installation. Our HARMAN system is highly flexible and easy to operate, delivering impactful audio with clarity during sermons and meditation.

It is a privilege to be associated with Wat Pathum Wanaram, a cultural landmark of great importance in Bangkok,” said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM, HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. “We thank our longtime partner Mahajak Development for using HARMAN audio solutions to exceed the expectations of their clients and delivering an outstanding audio experience for those who pray and meditate at Phrarajasatta Pavilion.

BANGKOK, THAILAND—Mahajak Development Co. Ltd. recently deployed a cutting-edge HARMAN Professional Solutions AV system at the Bangkok International Preparatory and Secondary School to enrich the learning environment for staff and students.

Bangkok International Preparatory and Secondary School (Bangkok Prep) is one of the top international schools in Thailand. In order to enable staff and students to easily utilize audiovisual devices in the classroom, Bangkok Prep hired Mahajak Development Co. Ltd. to implement a cutting-edge HARMAN Professional AV system featuring JBL loudspeakers, Crown amplifiers, AMX and dbx signal processors and Martin lighting software.

They also requested a user-friendly touch-panel interface so staff and students can control the system with minimal technical assistance. We decided to go with HARMAN Professional products because of their unrivaled flexibility, superior sound quality and intuitive controls.”

Mahajak installed JBL SRX715 two-way loudspeakers and an SRX718S satellite subwoofer system to provide comprehensive coverage and extended low-frequency output during live performances. JBL JRX112M two-way stage monitors deliver crystal-clear audio, making it easy for artists to hear themselves during performances. JBL Control 2P C2PS and CONTROL 24CT in-ceiling speakers are used to achieve high-quality sound in enclosed spaces like classrooms and auditoriums. The system is powered using Crown XTi -4000, CDi1000 and XLS402D amplifiers.

An AMX NX-2200 NetLinx NX Integrated Controller and PSR4.4 power supply are used to connect AV devices throughout the facility, while TPC-IPAD software allows users to control the entire system via Apple® mobile devices. A dbx DriveRack 260 loudspeaker management system, AFS224 Advanced Feedback Suppression processor and 231V graphic equalizer are used to ensure that the system sounds its very best. Martin LightJockey 2 lighting control software and M-DMX interface offer control of up to 100 DMX fixtures for creating dynamic, immersive lighting during events.

"Our aim was to install a contemporary AV system flexible enough to accommodate the evolving styles of learning, said Mrs Patrada Yomnak, License Holder, Director and Manager, Bangkok International Preparatory and Secondary School. “We hired Mahajak to design a reliable, future-proof AV system that makes it easy for staff and students to control AV equipment in any room with their personal devices.

HARMAN Professional Solutions Audio Systems Deliver Quality Sound in All Weather at Sun World Bà Nà Hills

DANANG, Vietnam—BaSao Investment recently installed a robust, all-weather HARMAN Professional Solutions audio system at Sun World Bà Nà Hills. 

Situated high in the Trường Sơn Mountains, Bà Nà Hills is one of five Sun World resort destinations in Vietnam operated by Sun Group. The resort is built around a hundred-year-old French village accessed by the longest cable car system in the world, with attractions including high-end lodging and dining, extravagant gardens, a wax museum and a theme park based on the works of Jules Verne. For their daily outdoor carnival shows, Sun Group required a robust audio system that could deliver high-quality sound and complete crowd coverage, while also withstanding inclement weather. To meet these goals, BaSao Investment deployed an end-to-end HARMAN audio solution incorporating JBL all-weather loudspeakers, Crown amplifiers, dbx DriveRack processors and Soundcraft Si digital mixers.

"Sun World Bà Nà Hills requested a powerful outdoor audio system that would help them achieve excellent sound quality and coverage to enhance their carnival events throughout the year,” said Mr. Nguyen Huu Tuan, Sales Director at BaSao Investment. “The JBL, Crown, Soundcraft and dbx equipment from HARMAN gave us unsurpassed sonic performance as well as total coverage and consistency for the audience.”

BaSao selected JBL AW526 all-weather loudspeakers for the installation, which feature Progressive Transition waveguides for impressive 120° x 60° coverage. 500-Watt AWC15LF subwoofers extend the system’s low-frequency capability to 45Hz with the same weather-resistant construction. Crown MA 5000i amplifiers power the system with onboard analog signal processing and built-in network connectivity. For mixing tasks, BaSao took advantage of the Soundcraft Si Expression 1 console’s 64-input expansion slot to accommodate the festival’s many performers. They also chose the dbx DriveRack VENU360 loudspeaker management system to optimize and protect the system with advanced AutoEQ and AFS algorithms.

“We trusted BaSao Investment for this project to help us provide guests with a spectacular carnival experience,” said Mr Van Sinh, Project Manager, at Sun World Bà Nà Hills. “We were perfectly confident and comfortable working with their team. We required a powerful, all-weather audio system with wide coverage and high-definition sound, and HARMAN’s audio solutions made it possible to have all that in small-footprint package.”

"HARMAN Professional Solutions is pleased to be associated with Sun World Bà Nà Hills and glad to help bring the carnival festivities to life with high-impact audio," said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM, HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. "We thank our country partners BaSao Investment for using HARMAN products to meet the client's unique requirements and create a high-energy carnival experience.”

British School Jakarta Elevates the Experience for Student Athletes with HARMAN Professional Solutions

CSA Indonesia brings powerful, clear audio to a range of world-class sports facilities at British School Jakarta with HARMAN Professional audio solutions

JAKARTA, Indonesia—CSA Indonesia recently outfitted British School Jakarta’s massive multi-use Sports Centre with end-to-end HARMAN Professional Solutions audio systems.

British School Jakarta is a world-renowned institution serving over 1,400 students aged three to 18 from Indonesia, the United Kingdom, and around the world. BSJ’s Sports Center is one of the best-equipped in Indonesia, with three multi-use basketball courts, a fitness center, dance studio, a rock climbing wall, five tennis courts, extensive outdoor playing fields and an Olympic-sized swimming pool. The school needed a comprehensive audio solution to provide sound reinforcement for a variety of matches, tournaments and classes across the different facilities. BSJ hired CSA Indonesia to outfit the complex with an end-to-end HARMAN Professional audio solution comprised of JBL Professional speakers, Crown amplifiers, Soundcraft mixers, dbx signal processors and AKG wireless microphone systems.

“To foster a lively environment for the students of the British School Jakarta, the school management decided to implement an end-to-end audio solution for the contemporary Sports Center in the facility,” said Setiawan Winarto, CEO, CSA Indonesia. “HARMAN is the technology leader in audio equipment, and their market-leading solutions were perfectly suitable for the requirements of the project, based on the type of venue and budget. However, the major challenge was the size of the Sports Center and the customer’s unique requirement of the design and installment process. It was important to create a consolidated design that would provide the richness and depth of audio during announcements and performances. HARMAN’s scalable audio solutions made it possible to deliver the desired results.”

Due to the multitude of different sports and facilities at BSJ, each field, court and gym required a different system configuration. CSA deployed versatile SRX812 loudspeakers and 818S subwoofers in the multi-use basketball courts. The outdoor football and rugby fields needed a durable weatherproof audio solution, which the JBL AWC 129 all-weather loudspeakers were perfectly suited for. The fitness center called for high-fidelity speakers without a large footprint, so CSA installed compact JBL Control 25AV speakers andSB2210 subwoofers. In the yoga/aerobics facility, JBL 8128 in-ceiling speakers provide high-fidelity audio in a cost-effective package.

CSA installed Crown XTi and XLS Series amplifiers to power the different speaker systems throughout the complex. All facilities feature Soundcraft mixers, including the intuitive Si Expression 1, the reliable and cost-effective EPM 8, and the remote-controlled UI12 which allows staff to mix from mobile devices. dbx Driverack PA2 loudspeaker management systems optimize audio and help protect the equipment with features like dbx limiting, AutoEQ, and Advanced Feedback Suppression (AFS). CSA selected AKG wireless microphone systems with SR470 receivers for all facilities. Referees and instructors use hands-free C544 L headsets with PT470 body-pack transmitters, while D5 microphones provide greater clarity for announcers and commentators.

“As a leading international institution with world-class sports facilities, and we needed nothing less than best-in-class audio equipment,” said Daniel Silman – Head of Marketing and Admissions, British School Jakarta. “Our facilities required clear amplification of speech and music with consistent coverage for a variety of sporting events in different venues. We also needed a solution that was modern, efficient, and straightforward to operate. With HARMAN’s state-of-the-art equipment, CSA was able to deliver several comprehensive audio systems that went above and beyond our expectations.”

“We are privileged to be the brand of choice for the prestigious British School Jakarta,” said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. Elevating sporting experiences with high-end audio solutions enhances performance among the students and elevates the experience for spectators. Delivering a customized audio solution in a sporting arena is always a unique challenge, and CSA Indonesia’s team executed the project flawlessly with their in-depth knowledge, close coordination with the school and support from HARMAN Professional Solutions.”
