NAPA brings audio in-house with KYAF


Pakistan’s National Academy of Performing Arts (NAPA) has been outfitted with a new audio system from Harman Professional. Located in Karachi, NAPA is a renowned cultural institution that offers comprehensive courses and workshops in theatre and the performing arts. The academy hired KYAF Corporation to install new digital audio systems capable of ensuring 'premium sound' for theatre productions held there, which can include drama, music and live performances.

‘At NAPA, we host a wide range of world-class performances throughout the year by artists from around the globe,’ said Ashad Mehmood, NAPA engineer. ‘We required a high-end audio system that delivers impeccable sound without the aid of a rental company. KYAF suggested a comprehensive Harman audio solution to meet our diverse requirements and we have been very impressed with the results.’

The system installed at NAPA is based around a JBL Professional speaker system, which includes VRX932LA line array elements, PRX818XLF subwoofers and EON 612 portable speakers. Power comes from Crown XTi Series amplifiers, while for inputs, KYAF supplied a range of AKG microphones, including WMS420 wireless, D5 vocal, P4 instrument, HM1000 hanging stage mics and a Drum Set Session 1 drum mic set. A Soundcraft Si Impact digital mixing console was also provided for control, while dbx processors were called upon to ‘further refine the sound’.

‘NAPA trains its students in a studio-like environment to develop their understanding of theatre culture,’ explained KYAF owner, Ahmed Bawaney. ‘NAPA also hosts performances by international troupes throughout the year and every audio component chosen was based on performance guidelines. After rigorous sound testing across various brands, we selected Harman audio solutions because of their excellent sound quality and coverage.’
