Lido Connect Transforms Historic Bangkok Theater Into a Multipurpose Venue With HARMAN Professional Solutions

Mahajak Development Co. equips the former multiplex with a range of flexible HARMAN audio solutions to provide pristine sound for movies, music, events and more
Mahajak Development Co. recently outfitted the Lido Connect entertainment complex with state-of-the-art HARMAN audio solutions to deliver high-quality sound and flexibility for cinema screenings, live music, performing arts and other events.
 
Lido Connect is a multipurpose entertainment and retail venue located in the former Lido Multiplex Movie Theater in Bangkok’s Siam Square. After the 50-year-old multiplex closed in 2018, the building underwent extensive renovations to transform it into a cultural hub for moviegoers, music fans, artists and shoppers. As part of the renovations, the former “Lido 1” theater remained a screening room but received major upgrades, while “Lido 2” and “Lido 3” became a live music venue and a small black box theater, respectively.
 
To provide pristine sound for movies, concerts and other events, each of these spaces required new, state-of-the-art sound systems. To execute their client’s vision, Mahajak Development Co. equipped Lido Connect with a range of JBL Professional, Crown, Soundcraft, BSS and dbx audio solutions.
 
“The client wanted to enliven the space with immersive, hi-tech audio systems to deliver pristine sound quality while ensuring a smooth listening experience,” said Pongsakorn Kanchanachayphoom, Project Director, Mahajak Development Co., Ltd. “To support the varied range of events to be held at the venue, we carefully selected HARMAN fixtures that reproduce speech, music and other sound effects with finest detail and fullest dynamics.”
 
To deliver cinema-quality sound in the renovated Lido 1 theater, the Mahajak team deployed JBL AC599 two-way loudspeakers, 9320 cinema surround speakers and high-powered ASH6118 subwoofers to deliver 7.1 surround sound with extended bass response. Crown XTi 2002, XTi 4002 and XTi 6002 amplifiers power the system, while a BSS BLU-100 signal processor provides flexible routing via a high-bandwidth networked audio system. Lastly, a JBL CPi2000 cinema processor offers volume control, signal processing, room EQ tuning and system fault detection for the 7.1 system. For occasional live events, Mahajak also outfitted Lido 1 with a Soundcraft Mini Stagebox 32i, as well as dbx DI4 and DB10V direct boxes.
 
To provide high-impact sound reinforcement for concerts on the Lido 2 stage, Mahajak selected JBL SRX835P and SRX815P loudspeakers supplemented by SRX828SP subwoofers. JBL PRX815W loudspeakers serve as stage monitors, providing accurate sound for performers onstage. Mahajak also equipped Lido 2 with a Soundcraft Si Impact digital mixer, featuring scene presets for easy setup and remote control via tablet, to provide staff with flexible mixing capabilities. Like Lido 1, Mahajak equipped Lido 2 with a Soundcraft Mini Stagebox, dbx Di4 and DB10V direct boxes and a BSS BLU-100 signal processor for maximum input density and routing flexibility.
 
Lido 3, the converted black box theater, required a more stripped-down audio system to provide pristine sound for small-scale live art performances. For this purpose, Mahajak selected JBL PRX815W portable powered loudspeakers, which allows staff to easily reconfigure the space for different applications. PRX818XLFW powered subwoofers provide low-end extension for full-range sound. Both models feature WiFi connectivity for convenient control and easy reconfigurability.
 
Lido Connect’s management reported that they requested best-in-class cinema technology and believe that the new HARMAN systems have helped them achieve that aim. They added that they were delighted with the performance of the HARMAN solutions as well as the service offered by Mahajak.
 
“For a unique venue like Lido Connect, it was important to install a custom solution capable of seamlessly meeting the requirements of a diverse set of events,” said Amar Subash, Director, Channel Management and Audio Solutions, HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. "We would like to thank our partner Mahajak Development for exceeding expectations with their design and providing a premium audio experience for the visitors.”
