‘Mantra Club aims to provide an exceptional music experience’

Indonesia - Mantra Club, the latest addition to the vibrant nightlife of Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK) in Jakarta, has burst onto the scene with impressive décor and a sound system from KV2. Club owners and nightlife destination specialists, the Satulapan Group, turned to integration experts, Music Art, to deliver an audio system in line with their high-level expectations. Music Art recommended KV2 with the support of KV2’s Indonesian distributor, PT Goshen Swara Indonesia.

Mantra Club aims to provide an exceptional music experience, including high-octane DJ sets and live performances. The brief was therefore to design a high-quality audio system capable of delivering high SPL with minimum distortion for a high-energy yet non-fatiguing audio experience. Following a convincing demo at Goshen’s impressive demo facility in font of both the end client and the integrator, Music Art designed and installed an audio system from KV2 that transitions seamlessly between DJ sets and live performances while maintaining high sound clarity and power, tailored for a variety of musical genres.

The sound system features advanced components from KV2 Audio, including VHD2.0, VHD1.0, and VHD4.18 speakers, powered by VHD2000 and VHD3200 amplifiers. The customer specifically asked for a clean area on the main stage, which has 11m ceilings – hence KV2 was an excellent choice requiring fewer cabinets to deliver the same performance as a line array system.

Consequently, the VHD2.0/VHD1.0 system was flown L and R with subs discreetly groundstacked, which has very little visual impact on the stage. Several EX12 loudspeakers serve as sidefills, delay lines and DJ monitors, ensuring a cohesive audio experience throughout, whether for ambient evenings or high-energy concerts and DJ sets.

According to Goshen’s Franky Cahyadi the KV2 system has delivered on all fronts – even exceeding expectations - and the customer is delighted. “High SPL and low distortion were key criteria for Mantra, as was smooth, even coverage and crystal-clear sound for live music and DJ performances,” says Cahyadi. “After the opening night, the client was thrilled – he said the price-to-performance ratio was amazing, the system definitely delivered beyond his expectations. It’s everything he wanted and more.”
