Audiophile Components Inc. created a flexible audio system featuring solutions from JBL, Crown, Lexicon, and Soundcraft for a multi-purpose facility in the Philippines.
Audiophile Components Inc. installed a complete Harman Professional Solutions sound system at the Alaminos Convention Centre, in the city of Alaminos, Pangasinan, Philippines.
The facility, also known as the Don Leopoldo Sison Convention Centre, opened in 2017 and hosts everything from conventions to large-scale concerts to small private functions. Because of its diverse programming, it required a sound system that was not only robust, but also incredibly versatile. The City Council of Alaminos, hired Audiophile Components Inc. to design, procure and deploy the system. After careful consideration, Audiophile selected a complete Harman Professional audio solution made up of JBL Professional loudspeakers, Crown amplification, a Soundcraft mixing console and processing components from dbx, BSS and Lexicon.
“We are privileged to be associated with the City Council of Alaminos and Alaminos Convention Centre in the Philippines,” said Ramesh Jayaraman, Vice President and General Manager of Harman Professional Solutions. “Harman Professional Solutions and our iconic brands have always been known for quality and performance that helps elevate the experience for our customers.”
The sound system deployed by Audiophile Components includes six JBL PRX735 15-inch three-way loudspeakers, which deliver high SPL with low distortion. Because of the stage location and its LED wall, the system designers chose to wall mount the loudspeakers, rather than hanging them from the ceiling. For low-frequency reinforcement, the system includes six 18-inch JBL PRX718XLF powered subwoofers. Audiophile Components also included four JBL PRX712 12-inch two-way powered loudspeakers as stage monitors. The mix is controlled via a compact, 22-channel Soundcraft Signature analog mixer that offers high headroom, wide dynamic range and an exceptional signal-to-noise ratio.
The system’s signal processing components include a Lexicon MX200 multi-effects processor, two DBX 231S dual-channel 31-band graphic equalizers, and one DBX 166xs Dual Compressor/Limiter/Gate unit. For speaker optimization and protection, the designers picked a dbx DriveRack PA2 unit that provides processing between the mixer and amplifiers.
“We thank Audiophile, our long-term country partner in the Philippines for yet another successful installation,” Ramesh said. “Their strong support and customer-first approach, not to mention their excellent system design, were key factors in bringing such a high-quality HARMAN system to the Alaminos Convention Centre.”
