L-Acoustics installed in Angkasapuri Mediacity, Malaysia

Malaysia’s Auditorium Seri Angkasa has been installed with an L-Acoustics Kara system to cater to its broadcast programming of music and orchestral concerts, and television variety programs.

Led by Sean Iskhandar of Motifv8 Projects, the installation was a close collaboration with Stagetec Asia and VME.

The auditorium is situated within the Angkasapuri Mediacity in Bukit Putra, Kuala Lumpur. The 18-storey office building serves as the new headquarters for Radio Television Malaysia (RTM) and Malaysia's Ministry of Information.

The building also houses a sixty-thousand square metre space consisting of a music recording studio, several television broadcast studios and auditoriums, and an outdoor plaza.

Motifv8 partnered with L-Acoustics director of application project APAC, Alvin Koh, to propose a design using the L-Acoustics Soundvision 3D modelling software. A custom rigging bar was built for the two clusters of three subwoofers while an LCR system was chosen, with two L-Acoustics A15 boxes serving as centre-fill. The main L/R system consists of twelve Karai per side and an L-Acoustics X8 per side delivers side-fill. Eight LA4X amplified controllers drive the entire system.

Iskhandar remarked: "The RTM team is very pleased with the brand-new installation. Their engineers now have a system that delivers consistent coverage and SPL throughout the auditorium with headroom that fits their range of broadcast performance content.”
