The addition of the Bose Professional RoomMatch system has dramatically improved the overall sound experience here.

The system sounds immaculate, just as the first time we heard it, and now we’re treated to the highest possible quality of sound on a daily basis. We couldn’t be more pleased with our decision to partner with Bose!” ....words from a high-ranking official at Nashik’s iconic Mahakavi Kalidas Kalamandir sum the drastic improvement in venue’s soundscape following the inclusion of their new Bose Professional RoomMatch System.

An undertaking of the Nashik Municipal Corportation, the Mahakavi Kalidas Kalamandir has proudly stood as an iconic structure in the calm and peaceful city of Nashik for over four decades. Often regarded as one of the few genuine venues for audiences to enjoy authentic Marathi theatre and dramas, the auditorium has served as a beacon of excellence when it comes to stage performances; barring the fact that it sported a technological infrastructure that hadn’t been updated for decades, until recently. With an extensive refurbishment fulfilled by the management, the venue now stands as a completely overhauled acoustically designed theatre with a seating capacity of over 1250 heads in an exclusive circular tiered type seating arrangement that affords it the look and feel of a majestic concert hall. The overhaul also involved a comprehensive update of the old sound system; which was swiftly upgraded to an all new and comprehensive RoomMatch system from Bose Professional System which now graces the venue with enhanced sound performance and increased intelligibility that capably reinforces everything from intense theatrical performances to immersive musical delights.

Bose Professional

Vibhor Khanna – Country Manager SAARC, Bose Professional – is pleased that the Mahakavi Kalidas Kalamandir chose Bose Professional as their preferred sound partner, as he comments “Associating with an iconic establishment like the Mahakavi Kalidas Kalamandir is a matter of great pride for us; and to have positive feedback from the management about the performance of their new Bose RoomMatch system is quite the compliment. Bose has always stood at the fore in creating innovative audio products and technologies that empower users with consistent world-class sound experience; and our suite of RoomMatch products is testimony to this fact. The Mahakavi Kalidas Kalamandir’s decision to outfit the auditorium with a top-of-the-line Bose RoomMatch system demonstrates a commendable dedication to providing their audience with the most immersive performance environment; and it’s heartening to know how everyone’s enjoying the sound experience.”

The newly overhauled system at the auditorium consists of L/R clusters comprising RM12040 modules with RM9020 modules deployed as the FOH solution to reproduce crystal clear high and mid-range fidelity, while multiple units of the RMS215 subwoofers provide crucial low-frequency impact. Products from Bose Professional’s acclaimed RoomMatch Utility series have also been installed, with multiple units of the RMU 105 loudspeakers deployed as front fills and multiple units of the RMU 206 loudspeakers deployed as fills covering the balcony area. The entire system is powered through Bose’s acclaimed PowerMatch PM8500N amplifiers, with processing sorted through the efficient ControlSpace ESP-4120 engineered sound processor. Furthermore, the venue houses two dedicated green rooms along with a central control room, all of which have been outfitted with Bose Professional products with the DS16S loudspeakers powered through IZA 190HZ amplifiers rounding off the system.

The Bose Professional system at the auditorium is designed and installed by AudioTechnik, Mumbai

Mumbai-based AV systems integrator AudioTechnik have designed and installed the Bose Professional system at Mahakavi Kalidas Kalamandir, and inputs from Rajesh Patil – director of AudioTechnik – reveals how he and his team went about commissioning the system, as he shares, “Our initial interactions with the client revealed how the venue struggled with good quality sound while using the former system; and the fact that they now desired a new system that would not only cover the room and increase speech intelligibility, but also be able to accommodate high-energy music. Following our interactions with the client and an extensive analysis of the venue, we realized that RoomMatch arrays were the right option as we needed a dual-hang line array product that let us control patterns vertically and horizontally to put the right coverage in the right areas of the room. The progressive nature of the RoomMatch arrays allowed throw sound deep into the balcony without blowing the people out of their seats right in the front of the room; and the RMU speakers provided just the perfect fills solution in terms of maintaining the same high-quality Bose sonic signature. The system in its entirety provides a great front-to-back coverage ratio. Plus, using Modeler and Auditioner let us get to the point where we were assured about not only how the system sounds, but also the exact dispersion and coverage pattern. This afforded us the precision to derive great quality speech intelligibility and unparalleled music support. The system really does all of that, and more. And now after a good amount of time with the system being in use, the outcome has been all that the management had hoped for, and more. They are very impressed so far, and the crowd has responded very positively. For us, there could be no better compliment!”
