The Montien Hotel was ceremoniously opened by Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand on Valentine’s Day, 1967. Sitting at the heart of the city’s most captivating neighbourhood, few Bangkok hotels can boast the individuality and the true Thai spirit to match that of the Montien Hotel. With its distinctive architecture and design, the brand-new renovated hotel once again invites guests to enjoy genuine hospitality in splendid surroundings. The exhilarating Bang Rak location is a perfect base for touring some of the city’s finest boutiques and galleries, exploring Chinatown and historic Chao Phraya river, as well as for experiencing Bangkok’s thrilling night life. This unique Bangkok getaway extends a warm welcome to all visitors from across Thailand and from around the world.
The audio solutions ranging from input sources to speaker endpoints were provided by the Belgian brand AUDAC. Exclusive AUDAC distributor in Thailand, Showtec Co, LTD. was appointed as Audio-Visual Consultant, ensuring that all audio requirements were carefully thought through and implemented. As this project evolves around an existing hotel building, there has been many challenges in finding the right audio solutions to adapt & cater to the various areas with different application requirements.
Showtec Co started work on the showpiece of the upgraded hotel, the Ballroom. 66 CELO8 ceiling speakers and 18 CELO8S ceiling subwoofers provide crystal clear audio. These speakers are amplified by 4 DPA616 sixteen-channel class-D amplifiers. Because it is a multifunctional space, M2 multimedia digital audio mixers and 6 DW5066 digital all-in-one wall panels were installed to ensure multifunctionality.
As in all hotels, the background music system plays an important role in creating the right ambience for the various spaces of the hotel. You can find the background music system in the gym, the poolside bar, the garden lounge and in the Mazzanine lobby. In order to adapt to all the different spaces, a large variety of AUDAC products were installed. These zones were equipped with 72 CIRA5 QuickFit™ ceiling speakers to provide pristine background music along with 12 ATEO6 wall speakers. These loudspeakers are powered by 4 PMQ480 Quad-channel amplifiers.
The sound and speech are distributed by 3 M2 multimedia digital audio mixers while a single CMP30 audio player takes care of the music sources like a CD-player, MP3 player and a AF/FM tuner. Seeing that they needed to provide a flexible input locations and control possibilities, they installed 6 DW5066 digital all-in-one wall panels connected to the M2 together with 9 DW3020 wall panel controller to easily adjust the volume.
The hotel has several spaces that also need to be approached separately. With this in mind, the ground floor lobby was equipped with 16 CIRA5 QuickFit™ ceiling speakers together with a DW5066 digital all-in-one wall panel that makes controlling the speakers a piece of cake.
In order to ensure that guests can fully enjoy the lobby bar, 8 CIRA5 QuickFit ceiling loudspeakers were installed. To ensure controllability of the loudspeakers, this room was equipped with a DW5066 Digital all-in-one wall panel.
Besides the ground floor lobby and the lobby bar, the hotel also has 2 meeting rooms that need to be provided with high quality audio. In order to guarantee perfect intelligibility in these meeting rooms, 12 CELO6 high-end ceiling speakers were installed together with 3 EPA104 Quad-channel to reinforce the qualitative audio throughout the rooms. To control the 2 different zones, 2 MTX48 4-zone audio matrix systems were installed together with 2 MWX45 wall panels to easily operate the MTX system.
