Systems Electronics & Engineering provides audio solutions for Malaysian school

AUTHOR: Inavate

Systems Electronics & Engineering has installed a range of audio solutions for the Garden International School (GIS) as part of its expansion and redevelopment. The school is located in Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The system was designed and installed after discussion between the school’s sound technician Karl Taras and Systems Electronics & Engineering. The solutions included an outdoor sound system for its stadium, a portable sound system for its Music Department and acoustical treatment for its Music Recital Room.

The outdoor sound system for the stadium consists of Community R52z and R.25-94z loudspeakers powered with Ashly KLR power amplifiers. All audio was processed via a Symetrix Jupiter 8 digital signal processor and controlled with an iPad using the Mackie DL806 mixing console. A Furman CN3600SE was used to sequence and protect the various units in the system.

Taras commented: “We are getting great use out of the field system, more that I would have thought. The feedback from the staff has been very positive and some I have shown how to use which it's great as it is simple for them to switch on and use even when I'm not around.”

Not originally in the planned scope of works, Systems Electronics & Engineering also provided a mixing solution the school’s multipurpose halls. An Allen & Heath Qu32 digital mixing console was chosen to meet the GIS’ needs in terms of inputs, outputs and flexibility."

Lim Kheong Sen, country manager for Systems Electronics & Engineering, said: “We sat down with Karl and discussed the school’s usage requirements and were certain that the Qu-32 would be the perfect solution to meet the school’s needs. It was ideal in terms of size, user friendliness, I/O versatility and of course, the iPad remote control option. The QU-32 also came in at a very competitive price point and offered a lot of value for the price.”

Taras added: “We were looking at a digital mixing console that had the capability and versatility for our annual drama presentation and other school events. The Qu-32 met all of our requirements and since the control room is located within another room in the back of the hall, we find the remote mixing feature using an iPad to be very handy and it also gives us a higher channel count.”
