Grand Zenith Hotel, Malaysia

The Opportunity:

One of the most luxurious hotels in Malaysia, Grand Zenith features amenities like fine dining, spa services and a lavish Sky Lounge bar. Recently, Grand Zenith decided to update its multi-purpose ballroom with a state-of-the-art audio system capable of delivering exceptional audio for a wide range of events and performances. The hotel also used the opportunity to upgrade the audio system in meeting rooms to allow for more efficient inter-staff communication. To achieve these goals, Grand Zenith hired industry-leading audio experts Mahajak Trio, who suggested a complete HARMAN Professional audio system.

The Solution:

Mahajak Trio outfitted the Grand Zenith ballroom with JBL AC2215/95 loudspeakers and Crown CTs 1200 power amplifiers, as well as new JBL EON610 active loudspeakers for additional coverage. Audio is mixed on a Soundcraft EFX12 mixing console, which features built-in 24-bit digital Lexicon® effects processors. A rugged AKG GN50E modular gooseneck microphone with the high-performance CK31 condenser capsule provides the perfect hands-free solution for speakers, while a WMS470 Vocal Set D5 provides wireless mobility for more energetic performers.

Mahajak Trio implemented a similar system for Grand Zenith’s meeting rooms. JBL Control 26C ceiling speakers powered by Crown DCi 2|300 amps reinforce speakers with stunning clarity. AKG GN50E, CK31, D5 and WMS470 Vocal Set D5 microphones provide a variety of high-quality options for speakers to choose from. BSS EC-4BV and BLU-100 signal processors provide simple volume and distribution controls, allowing staff to easily control the system without the need for a dedicated sound technician.

The Impact:

“We chose the JBL AC2215/95s because they offer extended coverage, which helps fill out the ballroom without the need for a big, bulky rig,” said HL Teo, General Manager, Mahajak Trio. “The Soundcraft EFX12 console has built-in effects processors designed by Lexicon, which eliminates the need for any outboard gear. We were able to create a very efficient, streamlined audio system capable of handling Grand Zenith’s largest events with ease.”
