The superheroes of Marvel arrived in South-east Asia, stopping at newly-opened Marvel Experience in the Megabangna mall, Bangkok.
The entertainment attraction chose NEXO line array and point-source loudspeakers to deliver high-energy audio accompaniment to the immersive hyper-reality, interactive and multimedia technology games, and virtual reality simulations.
Fuzion Far East is one of the principal suppliers of The Marvel Experience and its owners, Hero Ventures L.A in partnership with Thailand-based Hero Experience. To cover the nine zones inside the 10,000 sq.m. multi-dome complex, using a variety of NEXO loudspeakers and sub-bass cabinets to deliver the high-SPL audio and FX. All programming, installation and tuning were overseen by the Fuzion design team.
FFE’s design team has favoured NEXO’s most compact models for the Marvel Experience, making extensive use of PS Series and ID Series point-source cabinets which are noted for their SPL output and quality yet small enough to hide inside the fabric of the venue.
Fuzion’s design team said: “With our new design suggestions for the various exhibits, and Dante already in flow, we redesigned the whole system to work more efficiently for this installation.”
Throughout the Experience, models from NEXO’s classic PS Series of point-source cabinets, PS8s, PS10s and PS15s, have been paired with different sub-bass models from the LS Series, and, for some of the larger attractions, configured in impressive 7.1 systems.
According to Fuzion, the most complex part of the installation was the 7.1 surround sound rooms, needing multitrack audio and seemingly endless cabling. In Tony Stark’s Lab, the video and robotics are boosted by a surround sound system using NEXO PS10 full-range cabinets, LS600 subs and ID24 compact point-source. In the visually impressive Simularium, a substantial 7.1 system comprising NEXO PS15 full-range speakers is matched to eye-popping visuals projected onto the domed ceiling by a dozen 4K projectors.
