L-Acoustics Syva installed at Parkroyal Collection Marina Bay, Singapore

Parkroyal Collection Marina Bay, part of the Pan Pacific Hotels Group, and undergone complete renovation. As part oof the upgrade it has deployed an L-Acoustics Syva system for its Grand Ballroom.

The 767 square metres ballroom hosts wedding banquets and corporate dining events and can also be partitioned into three separate rooms for corporate seminars. Acoustic and audio-visual consultants CCW Associates were tasked with the technical specifications of the Garden Ballroom. Concealing all speakers at their installation points within the elegant interior design was an essential requirement.

CCW Associates invited Singapore-based L-Acoustics Certified Provider, Concept Systems Technologies, to participate in the project tender, based on its proven credentials in providing audio solutions to over 40 hospitality projects around the city island.

Gerald Fong, project and sales director at Concept Systems Technologies, explained: “A stereo pair of point source enclosures and 6.5-in ceiling speakers had been distributed across the ballroom. Unfortunately, the technical limitations of the system prevented the team from being able to push the levels to their desire.”

Fong and his team knew that the low-profile design of the L-Acoustics Syva with its coverage capability, augmented by the distribution of L-Acoustics 5XT could achieve both power and discretion.

With full 140-degrees of horizontal coverage, a single pair of L-Acoustics Syva, concealed on either side of the Garden Ballroom stage covers the 36m ballroom. A pair of Syva Low are embedded in the ceiling area close to the stage, and 18 compact 5XT speakers, again hidden in the ceiling architecture, are pointed down, offering full-range audio to seated guests. Six additional Syva subs are hidden in the back and side ceiling area to provide low-end down to 27Hz. Two L-Acoustics LA4X and three L-Acoustics LA2Xi amplified controllers drive the system.

Fong concluded: “The Syva system looks, sound and feels comfortable for guests who come here to celebrate some of life’s most momentous occasions. We have had event companies coming to this venue for set up, and when they recognise and hear the L-Acoustics Syva installed, they will promptly request to use the system for the event. I believe they are pleasantly surprised by a system that is well hidden in the beautiful interior design delivering pristine sound for their clients and guests.”
