ABR Cinemas The Next is a world-class multiplex located in historic Gudivada. With three luxurious theaters, ABR Cinemas is one of Andhra Pradesh’s premier cinemas. To create a more immersive AV experience with even, balanced coverage, ABR Cinemas recently decided to upgrade its aging audio systems. ABR Cinemas hired sound integrators Digital Sound System to install three cutting-edge HARMAN Professional Solutions cinema audio systems featuring class-leading JBL loudspeakers, Crown amplifiers and state-of-the-art Dolby Atmos processors.
“We are proud to have been associated with HARMAN Professional Solutions and all of the products recently installed at ABR Cinemas,” said Dariya Hussain Syed of Digital Sound System. “The JBL Professional 4732 loudspeakers and 4642A subwoofers have delivered exceptional audio results. We received the products promptly and the technical support from HARMAN Professional Solutions helped us complete the installation on time.”

To provide additional low-frequency support, Digital Sound System selected powerful JBL 4642A dual-driver subwoofers and JBL 4641 subwoofers. Digital Sound System mounted JBL 9310, 9300, and JBL 8320 cinema surround loudspeakers on the walls and ceiling to ensure consistent coverage throughout the theater. The system is powered by Crown DSi 4000, DSi 2000 and XLC 2500 amplifiers.
