Sri Lankan QSC distributor Dynamic AV technologies has installed QSC KLA and K Series loudspeakers in a refurbishment of the auditoriums at the Columbo-based Sri Lankan Foundation Institute (SLFI), one of the Sri Lankan Republic’s largest and oldest adult education centres. The SLFI, which celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2014, specialises in vocational training for the Sri Lankan people in a variety of career disciplines, including psychology, sociology, business and language studies.
The sound reinforcement systems in the Institute’s main auditorium and four associated smaller lecture halls were all recently refurbished, receiving new loudspeakers, microphones, and sound mixers. Dynamic AV Technologies suggested QSC KLA and K series loudspeakers for the PA systems. 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.
Commenting on the performance of the QSC KLA and K Series following the installation, the management of the Sri Lanka Foundation have professed itself very happy with the sound quality of the QSC system, after searching for some time to ensure that the quality of the PA system would be sufficiently high. The management was persuaded to choose QSC after noticing that QSC systems have been used in many Sri Lankan government installations.
