State-of-Art Sound System for Indradhanush




Gita Vidya Mandir Girls College, Sonepat, a well-established, reputed and multi-faculty institute is one of the prominent educational institutions in Northern India, accredited with the prestigious NAAC 'A' Grade and honoured with the title of "Potential for Excellence", invested in a state-of-the-art sound system for their newly built 720-seater Auditorium 'Indradhanush' which was inaugurated by the Chief Minister of Haryana, Sh. Manohar Lal Khattar. The project was initiated by Dr. Jyoti Juneja who was the erstwhile Principal. The project faced a hurdle due the lockdown but was later successfully carried forward and accomplished by Dr. Renu Bhatia who took over charge from Dr. Juneja as the new Principal of the college.

Extensively used by the students for extra-curricular activities and for hosting functions of the College. The auditorium has an advanced light and sound system that is managed by specially designated support staff. It is equipped with a large stage, two green rooms, comfortable seating, carpeting, wall paneling for acoustic effects, washrooms, and a podium.

According to Dr. Renu Bhatia, "While working on the blueprint of the auditorium, the architect and the vendor were given specific instructions to design the auditorium in such a manner as could help them install the best sound and light system. The State-of-the-art auditorium with a seating capacity of over 720 people required a comfortable seating and modern acoustics. Curved surfaces and spade walls were preferred instead of parallel walls for better sound quality. We wanted that the vocal performances music and speech should be loud enough for the audience to hear, including those sitting at the very back of the auditorium. Sound should neither be distorted nor echoic. the sound system installed in the auditorium with wall mounted Loudspeakers, sub woofers, processors, mixers, mics and monitors are of excellent quality. Sound absorbing acoustical panels make listening programmes in the auditorium a treat. Every penny of investment in improving the acoustics of our auditorium is worth it".

To achieve the objective of installing the best sound system, after thorough research, the college approached Delhi based Sun Infonet Private Limited, authorised distributor of various reputed audio brands like Shure, Meyer Sound, Audio Focus, Quest Engineering and Allen & Heath.

Keeping the objective and requirement of the management into consideration, Sun Infonet deployed a Team of engineers from Application and Service to visit the venue and design a sound system that matches the management expectations.

While visiting this venue, the team Sun Infonet was well prepared and focussed to provide the best and complete sound system. After the initial recce of the venue, Sun Infonet worked on the sound system design, and decided to go with Shure Microphones in combination with Allen & Heath Mixer, Audio Focus Line array and Subwoofers and Quest Audio speakers to cover the entire area.

To address the Audience, Two Shure Gooseneck microphones CVG12DRS-B/C have been installed on each podium placed on either side of the stage. For best wireless audio experience, eight Shure SLXD4 Digital Wireless System coupled with two Shure UA844+SWB Antenna Distribution Systems have been installed in a Rack to use at Stage and to cover the full complete area of the auditorium through two Shure SLXD2/SM58 & four SM35 Peformance headset condenser microphone. Two WL185 Cardioid TQG Lavalier Microphone have also been added in the inventory for the VIP Guests and Presenter of the Show. To avoid the interruption due to any Battery issue, Eight SB903 Lithium-ion battery for SLX-D Wireless coupled with Four SBC203 Dual docking recharging station have also been chosen.

To cover the maximum rows of the auditorium, Six Audio Focus Ares 8a 2-way self-powered line array loudspeaker along with one Audio Focus B18 high performance compact 18" passive subwoofer each have been installed in a line array on both side of the Stage. To monitor the sound, two Quest QM3 Two-way Active Bass Reflex Speaker have been installed at both side of the stage and one Audio Focus CM15A 15"self-amplified stage monitor each at both side of the Stage on Tripod have also been installed.

Apart from the above stated gear Four Audio Focus S18a self-powered 18" subwoofer with one Venu 8a on each subwoofer have been installed under the stage for the front fill and best bass experience.

For Sonic experience One Venu 12a - 2-way 12" self-amplified point source loudspeaker each side have also been installed for the last few rows for fill. To manage all these gear, one Allen & Heath's SQ6 - 48 channel / 36 bus digital mixer coupled with One DX168 96kHz portable expander for adding remote I/O to a mixer is also installed in the Sound Room along with iPad for the remote setting.

Two Quest QSA 200i installed in the Green Room enables users and performers to hear the audio from the stage and auditorium while they wait for their turn to go on stage.
