The Imam Reza Shrine in Mashhad, Iran is a complex which contains the mausoleum of Imam Reza, the eighth Imam of Twelver Shiites. It boasts the largest mosque in the world by dimension and the second largest by capacity making the sanctuary in the northern city of Iran a mecca for the devout and tourists alike.
Given its high visibility, competition for the project was stiff with several international companies bidding, but it was the distinct slim design of K-array’s loudspeakers with high-quality sound performance that stood apart from the rest. The foyers Bast Shayhk Toosi, Bast Hur Ameli and Dar al Hujjah were outfitted with Kobra-KK102 column speakers powered by Kommander-KA10-10 four-channel amplifiers throughout the arched entrance halls covered in glass mosaics.
With a large amount of proposals submitted by audio design companies, we selected the solution that could provide clear sound but, most importantly, was able to blend in well with the architecture of the shrine. K-array solutions was an obvious choice. I am very satisfied with the quality of speaker system and the installation.
