Leading Secondary School, Doha
This auditorium project, delivered in the early part of 2019 was a complete overhaul and redesign of a legacy system that had not been improved upon for over 10 years. The performance and assembly space - situated in one of the 3 highest subscribed schools in the Sultanate of Qatar, - required an improved solution which would reflect the prestigious reputability which this particular educational establishment site has been known for, for many years,
It was quickly decided that the solution implemented would be the development of a completely new Audio, Visual and Lighting solution with some requirements for fabrication and metalworks.
In partnership with Bose Middle East, Student Express were able to provide a full Bose Professional Solution including the brand new MSA12x Pan-array Column speakers. DS40 ceiling mounted audio and Low-Frequency MB210 Sub-Woofers to give a strong, bassy fortification to the crisp audio.
Design and Reasoning
A key challenge in the implementation of a premium audio solution here, was the unique shape of the auditorium space; The hall’s beautiful vaulted ceiling descends on a steady incline from a highpoint of 21 feet at the stage front in to a waving descent , which levels out toward the main entrance of the room.
This unique design feature presented a need for creative thinking with regard to the acoustic considerations of the final solution.
One which the MSA12X was found to be perfectly suited. Due to their unique steerable column, the audio beam of the speaker can be shifted in a custom arrangement to adapt to changes in position or the idiosyncrasies of a given environment.
A factor which made them a desirable and well-suited addition.
Audio was further supported by DS40 ceiling mountable speakers at the very back of the auditorium, a lack of feasible wall space or mounting points in this part of the room was overcome through these popular, reliable, powerful speakers. Giving reinforcement of the audio for overflow.
