San Cristobal and Fontanar del Río Happiness Centers feature Bose Professional audio systems.

Bose Professional announces collaboration with technology solutions integrator Tecnoprocesos to create efficient audio systems enhancing user experience at two Centros Felicidad community centers in Bogotá, Colombia.

Tecnoprocesos trusted Bose Professional to integrate audio solutions in an auditorium, a multi-use gym, and various classrooms for workshops and classes.


These spaces are part of the District Institute of Recreation and Sport (IDRD), an entity of the Mayor's Office of Bogotá, which developed a program to build community centers with modern facilities and high-quality services to meet the needs of the population. Centros Felicidad are designed and built by Colombian architects and builders selected through a public competition where they present their projects. In the case of Fontanar del Río and San Cristóbal centers, the company C&G Ingenieria y Construcciones won, and in turn, trusted Tecnoprocesos for the integration of different systems, including audio solutions.

In addition to ensuring optimal performance and meeting the highest quality standards, audio systems had to be versatile enough to adapt to the needs of multi-use spaces and offer intuitive operation to facilitate the work of instructors and Centros Felicidad staff.


San Cristóbal Happiness Center

Regarding acoustic performance, the spacious multi-use gym of San Cristóbal Happiness Center presented the greatest challenge. It is a large indoor sports venue and also serves as a venue for indoor sports competitions or artisan fairs. The venue has large windows on all four sides and two bleacher areas with a capacity for about a thousand spectators.

With the help of the Automa team, Bose Professional's local distributor, and the support engineer for Bose Professional in Latin America, Tecnoprocesos designed an audio system with ShowMatch DeltaQ line array speakers suspended from the gym ceiling. The system consists of two ShowMatch SM10 and SM20 modules on each side and two SM118 subwoofers in the center. To achieve the best possible intelligibility, the system features eight RoomMatch Utility RMU208 speakers distributed in the bleacher area to provide information to the audience attending sports events. The system is complemented by three PowerMatch PM8500 power amplifiers and a ControlSpace ESP-880A processor.


The design of ShowMatch DeltaQ modules allowed us to adjust their directionality and choose the necessary vertical coverage to cover the entire court area. Installing suspended subwoofers allowed us to project enough energy for artists and the audience to feel and move to the rhythm of the music, explained Javier Arias, General Manager of Tecnoprocesos.

Within the same San Cristóbal Happiness Center, DesignMax DM3S speakers integrate the audio system for community workshop classrooms and fitness, spinning, weightlifting, and dance rooms. The DesignMax DM3SE was chosen for its easy installation, sleek design, and efficient performance for voice, music, or any other content.Tecnoprocesos Bose 2 HI

Meanwhile, at the Fontanar del Río Happiness Center, Tecnoprocesos designed an audio system for an auditorium with a capacity for 110 people, used for both movie screenings and conferences, workshops, and social events.

Behind the projection screen, two Panaray MSA12X column speakers were installed, one for the right channel and one for the left channel, to achieve the best coverage and ensure intelligibility, along with an MB210-WR subwoofer to complete the installation at the front of the auditorium.

Eight RoomMatch Utility RMU105 speakers were installed in the bleacher area to achieve a surround effect for the sound of movies projected in 4K Ultra HD resolution through a Christie projector. The system includes six Bose PowerShare PS602 power amplifiers and a ToneMatch T8S mixing console used for events and conferences.

Since their inauguration in early 2022, both Happiness Centers have welcomed thousands of users who have enjoyed various activities. Sound has been a crucial element to ensure a satisfactory experience in different spaces. Users hear words clearly during conferences, workshops, or classes, and the sound of music or movies reaches every seat in the venues with the same power and clarity.


Carlos Osejo Moreno, Manager of the Fontanar del Río Happiness Center, explains that different community groups increasingly approach the Happiness Center to use spaces such as the auditorium.


For example, neighboring schools hold their diploma award ceremonies in the auditorium, and a video production group presents their short films in the same venue. The community enjoys these spaces, takes care of them, and uses them all the time, he commented.
