Sound Creations, successfully installed an audio  system at Oshwal Religious Centre. The installation took place in three days after which the company’s knowledgeable and experienced technical team trained their sound operators for three consecutive  days


Situated at the busy metropolis of Nairobi, the Oshwal Community Centre  offers a  “magnificent, superb, stately, state of the art” environment as described by most of her visitors.The centre was established in 1984 with the aim of providing the Oshwals, who popularly reside in Westlands and Parklands area, with a venue to carry out their religious activities. This is in coherence with the society’s operation to foster economic, social and religious development of her members. The centre, which accommodates approximately 4,000 people, currently serves as a place where the Oshwals meet, interact  and understand each other. It hosts religious activities, social activities such as sports, exhibitions and seminars, plays and concerts and  social gatherings- weddings, receptions, jalebi  gathiyas, luncheons, and Balmovara .It also accommodates recreational activities such as leisure walks, jogging and cycling.

 The community desired an upgrade from an analogue to a digital mixer with more outputs hence acquisition of Allen & Heath QU-32 digital mixer . As opposed to their analogue mixer, Allen & Heath QU- 32 presented them with 32 in/28 outs and  4 engine plug-in. The mixer was installed alongside AH7000 digital catt5 stage box, Allen & Heath modular interface rack AR2412 stage box with a AR0804 stage box looped together with a CAT5 cable to attain refined digital signal input and output. Other gear installed to enhance audio audibility at the venue  include SHURE SM58 wireless microphone ideal for their vocal or musical performance and KRK ROCKIT 8 monitor speakers.

The community’s decision to acquire Allen & Heath QU-32 was equally influenced by the mixer’s ability to function with either analogue and digital stage box and  its flexibility as one can operate it with an Ipad or android phone. The mixer is also very easy to use.allen-heath-mixer

Sound Creations’ Service Engineer Mr. Meshack Muraya and Technical & Sales specialist, Mr. Kevin Mehta did the installation with minimal issues.

“The only challenge we faced was inadequate roof spacing , but we managed to expedite  the installation after  wiring the Cat 5 cable ,” said  Mr. Meshack.

Mr. George, the Lead Sound  Technician  at Oshwal Centre is very plekevin-georgeased with the mixer,

“The sound is very good. There has been no issue since installation of the mixer. I now have more and better mixing options”
