Israel - Established in 1991, Mandel Cultural Centre is a community space located in the Jaffa region of Israel. The centre caters to the needs of the local community, and because of its prime location beside one of the largest stadiums in Israel, it is in high demand for private functions.
For this project TechTop Marketing, importer of professional audio equipment, worked with installers Charmer Group installers to upgrade the facility's audio system using LEA Professional solutions.
“Once Charmer Group recognised the team behind LEA Professional, they knew the technology and solutions provided would be nothing short of revolutionary,” explained Shimon Pick, director at TechTop Marketing. “LEA has a huge depth of pro audio experience behind them, and going into a significant local project like this, that level of expertise is incredibly reassuring to all parties involved."
What initially started as a system upgrade led to a complete new install in the centre with Charmer Group choosing four Connect Series amplifiers from LEA Professional, including three Network Connect CS704 amps, and one Network Connect CS352. Suited for small- to-medium scale installations, these two-, four-, and eight-channel amps feature direct HiZ (70V or 100V) or LoZ selectable by channel. With three ways to connect, integrators can engage the built-in Wi-Fi access point, connect to the venue’s Wi-Fi, or use the FAST Ethernet to connect to any local area network via Cat5 or Cat6 cable.
Mandel Cultural Centre is a 200-person multifunctional space that is split into one large room and one smaller space. The centre hosts music and art classes, live performances, lectures and various other community-led activities. The team at Charmer Group was committed to providing the centre a flexible, high-performance audio system that could be enjoyed by all.
“I am very open-minded when it comes to new technologies,” explained Babu Levy, co-founder of Charmer Group. “We had initially looked at a different amplifier company for the project but when we were introduced to the LEA Professional products, including the Cloud control functionality, I knew we could better serve the venue and the community with their technology.”
While Mandel Cultural Centre has yet to re-open to due to health and safety guidelines, the team is looking forward to welcoming the community back into the upgraded space when it is safe to do so.
