Abubakr Mosque – Southall, West London

 

The Southhall Abubakr mosque is a converted office building consisting of five floors and a basement. There is a Girls school on the second and third floors. The Mosque is undergoing a major rebuild with extensive marbling and plaster hand crafted ceilings and walls in the prayer areas and events room.

 

ADC was approached to provide an advanced sound system for all the areas. The main prayer halls are on the ground and first floors, with overflow prayer halls in the basement. There is a fourth floor “events” room for weddings etc. In addition, another hall area is provided for language translation.

 

All spaces can be combined and split as per the mosques requirements. Main Prayers may take place in either the ground or first floor halls, with audio transmitted throughout the building as required. All halls can be combined or split as required, audio routing is a major feature and the Symetrix digital mixer is at the heart of the system, providing all routing and EQ as required. All areas have access to radio microphones and hardwired lapel microphones are easily employed using microphone input panels on all floors.

 

There are two main floor lobbies with “call-to-prayer” microphones available. These automatically duck all other feeds to the halls. The ground and first floors then share the prayer meetings with both areas able to provide microphone feeds and playback simultaneously. The basement overflow prayer room may be “combined” into the system, or left as a discrete hall for other purposes.

 

The “Language Translation” hall is fed the master mix of audio to a headphone facility point, so a translator can then use either a radio microphone or handheld/lavaliere microphone for translated speech playback to the room, or via wall controls provide the original feed to the room.

 

The mosques main corridors may listen to just the “call to prayer” feed, or also have the whole main prayer meetings fed to them. All controlled by local wall switches and volume controls.

 

The fourth floor events hall is self-contained area with radio microphones and hardwired microphones.

 

The Mosque’s call to prayer and prayer meetings are also transmitted over the airwaves to local residents. The in-house radio transmitter is controlled via the Symetrix system’s logic facility outputs.

 

This is an ongoing project and recent additions include additional analogue rack mounted microphone sub-mixers to cater for multiple microphone types, and a digital echo device to be available to all audio mixes throughout the areas.

 

Currently under build is the facility to record all prayer meetings and make them available as podcasts for timed wireless playback to local residents and within the mosque itself. Future web based playback is also part of this new project. The Symetrix’ built in calendaring facility will allow for timed playback of podcasts.

 

Another soon to be installed aspect of the system will be telephone conferencing to the ground and first floors, allowing for a question and answer facility with local residents being able to telephone in and become involved in events.
