BANGKOK, Thailand – Seeking to provide the heart of Thailand with an elevated shopping experience, A/V systems integrator PM Centre turned to local HARMAN distributor Mahajak to provide audio for new twin luxury malls—Emquartier and Emporium (collectively called The District EM)—with JBL loudspeakers, Crown amplifiers, a Soundcraft mixing console and BSS Audio signal processors. The partnership between PM Centre and Mahajak allowed for an audiovisual system that is part of an extensive project, which also involved outdoor projections and LED displays.

While the two malls are separate complexes, they are architecturally interlinked with walkways and the Sky Train. Thanks to Mahajak, the sound systems at Emquartier and Emporium are now also unified under the same system. Extensive fiber networks and a control room were established to enable monitoring of the entire system from one location.

The audio system features 58 JBL Control 25AV loudspeakers, 20 Control 29AV loudspeakers, six JBL AWC129 loudspeakers, four JBL AW526 loudspeakers and six ASB7118WRX subwoofers. It is all powered with three Crown DCi 2|600N amplifiers, five DCi 2|1250N amplifiers and three Crown I-Tech 9000HD amplifiers. Two BSS BLU-806, one BSS BLU-326 signal processors with two BLU-BOB2 output expanders were also added for additional network bandwidth.

“Our experience in designing and installing outdoor systems, combined with the reputation of Soundcraft, JBL, Crown and BSS was the main reason that we were approached to develop this system,” said Alan Archer, Project Manager of Mahajak. “A very flexible system was needed to cater to a wide range of outdoor activities in multiple locations, so we used these products to enable delivery of high-quality sound to many locations at the same time.”

In addition to being a haven for shoppers, the District EM also serves as a promotional venue for many international companies and fashion pre-shows.

“We could not use other brands for an integrated system such as this one,” said Archer. “We have to convince the developers that we could produce a working system that will last within a certain budget. Thanks to the fact that JBL, Crown and BSS work so well together, we were able to achieve this.”
