QSC KLA and K Series loudspeakers have been installed as part of the refurbishment of the auditoriums at the Sri Lankan Foundation Institute (SLFI), one of the country's's largest and oldest adult education centres. The Colombo-based SLFI, which celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2014, specialises in vocational training in a variety of career disciplines, including psychology, sociology, business and language studies.
The refurbishment of the sound reinforcement systems in the Institute's main auditorium and four associated smaller lecture halls included new loudspeakers, microphones and audio consoles.
Sri Lankan distributor Dynamic AV Technologies suggested QSC KLA and K series loudspeakers for the PA systems – and also carried out their installation. The management, which spent some time looking for a PA system of sufficient quality, was persuaded to choose QSC after noticing that its systems have been used in many Sri Lankan government installations.
The main auditorium was the recipient of four QSC KLA12 line array units (two per channel) with a pair of KLA181 subwoofers, and a further pair of K8 Actives acting as sidefills. A new mixer and wireless lavalier microphones for use by lecturers completed the upgrade.
The four lecture halls each received a portable PA system comprising a pair of QSC K8 loudspeakers supplemented with a compact sound mixer and wireless mics.
Following the installation, the management of the Sri Lanka Foundation has professed itself very happy with the sound quality of the QSC system.
