PVR Juhu cinema in Mumbai installs Harman JBL audio system


Harman International India Pvt. Ltd. successfully completed an audio system installation with Harman JBL Professional cinema loudspeakers at PVR Cinema in Juhu, Mumbai. PVR Cinema is India’s leading and premium cinema exhibition chain.

PVR Cinema in Juhu consists of five auditoriums, which have varied seating capacity ranging from approximately 100 to 300 seats. Due to its prime location, the Juhu cinema hosts previews and premieres of most of the major movie releases every week.

Samir Mistry, application engineer at Harman Professional India, carried out the system installation with assistance from Hi-Tech Audio Systems, the authorized India distributor for Harman Professional products in India.

PVR opted for Harman JBL 5742 ScreenArray® loudspeaker systems and 4642A subwoofers in each of the five auditoriums, along with JBL 8340A surround speakers in three auditoriums and JBL 8350 surround speakers in two auditoriums. Crown DSi 2000, 4000 and 6000 amplifiers power the systems.

“The system has been designed to deliver its fullest output in all scenarios, with ease of use in mind,” said Ankush Agarwal, senior manager, marketing, at Harman Professional India. “It is capable of handling high sound levels with ample headroom and effectively reproduces soft whispers to the loudest bang.”
