The Sound System for Another "Manual" in Belgrade

AVL Projekt installed the audio system in July 2015 in the third store "Manual" in Belgrade

  • Client: Manual Co
  • Date of project: 2015

Identified needs


After two previous installations in Belgrade, Manual entrusted us for the third time and hired us to install an audio system in a third store in Belgrade. The store is located at Bulevar kralja Aleksandra 52, across the legendary restaurant Madera.

As with previous installations, preservation of the interior was of the highest priority.



Implemented solution


The installed system consists of speakers and their ceiling beams in matt black, which fully fits into the black ceiling.

The supplied speakers are models JBL ARENA 120. This speaker series is based on the legendary series M2 Master Reference Monitor. They are mounted on the custom made carriers and angle-directed for better coverage of the area. The sound in the shop is cozy and completed with deep bass thanks to the wireless subwoofer JBL ES250PW with 400W power.

It is important to note that the speakers are magnetically isolated from the influence of the electromagnetic interference which is especially important in smaller areas with a large number of power and signal cables and various signal sources.

These speakers are real representatives of the famous JBL triple effect: power, precision of reproduced sound and affordable price.


In addition to the speakers, we also delivered an award-winning, 7.2-channel audio/video receiver Harman Kardon AVR 171. For our client it was important that AVR has the ability to play music via USB port on the hard drive or USB memory, which the installed can. Also, HK AVR 171 supports AirPlay, which means it can stream music wirelessly from Apple devices (iMac, iPhone, iPad, iPod), or other smart phones, tablets or computers which is enabled through the integrated Harman TrueStream Bluetooth Technology.


With the patented technology Harman EzSet/EQ and thesupplied microphone, the automatic sound calibration was enabled, depending on the speaker's position in space, enabling the best audio performance.


The additional wish of the investor was there was the front store sound system which could play an independent audio content. Our team successfully implemented it, considering that the supplied HK AVR171 has the ability to work in two independent audio zones.
