Modena by Fraser Buriram, Thailand

The Opportunity

Constructed in 2018, Modena By Fraser Buriram is a world-class hotel known for its sleek blend of functionality and style. Located within walking distance of the renowned Chang International Circuit racetrack and Chang Arena football stadium, the Modena By Fraser Buriram hotel is ideally situated for sports fans. Behind the property’s distinctive façade are 152 luxurious guest rooms, a spacious foyer and a large ballroom used for elegant weddings, high-profile product launches, car shows, business conferences and more. To deliver clear, detailed sound in the ballroom and throughout the hotel, Modena By Fraser Buriram required a sophisticated networked audio system.

The Solution

AV integrator Mahajak Development designed and installed a HARMAN Professional Solutions networked audio system featuring class-leading solutions from JBL, Crown, Soundcraft and BSS.

Mahajak Development equipped the ballroom with JBL CBT 200LA-1 line array column speakers. With Constant Beamwidth Technology, CBT 200LA-1 speakers deliver crystal-clear sound with superior, consistent coverage. To provide additional low-end support, Mahajak Development selected JBL AC118S high-power subwoofers, which feature an extended frequency response down to 32 Hz. Additionally, Mahajak Development installed JBL Control 226C/T ceiling speakers thoughout the facility to provide balanced, even coverage. The system is powered by Crown CDi 2|1200 and CDi 2|300 amplifiers, which feature pre-loaded JBL speaker tunings to help make installations quicker and easier.

Signals on stage are routed through a Soundcraft Mini Stagebox 32R into a Soundcraft Si Impact digital mixing console. With versatile routing options, advanced DSP processing and color-coded FaderGlow technology, the Si Impact makes it easy for staff to quickly dial in pristine sound. To distribute signals throuhout the facility, Mahajak Development installed a BSS BLU-100 signal processor, which provides low-latency streaming for up to 48 channels of audio over traditional Category 5e cabling.

The Impact

“To ensure consistent sound throughout the facilities, we installed a networked audio system using HARMAN’s industry-leading AV solutions,” said Pongsakorn Kanchanachayphoom, Project Director, Mahajak Development Co. Ltd. “With the grand ballroom serving as a multi-purpose venue, we developed a highly customizable audio system with superb clarity for any event. We selected JBL Professional sound equipment along with Crown and Soundcraft because HARMAN’s solutions met all of the hotel’s environmental demands.”

“We wanted to create an immersive audio and visual experience for our guests, and HARMAN Professional Solutions has helped us achieve that objective,” said a spokesperson for Modena By Fraser Buriram Hotel. “With the latest equipment installed by Mahajak, we can now deliver exceptional sound quality throughout our multi-purpose ballroom with exceptional control.”
