- 22, February , 2023
Newstoday: The sound system inside Mecca's Grand Mosque, which has more than seen thousand loudspeakers, was tuned by more than 120 audio engineers, according to a report from the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) on Monday. The extensive system broadcasts the call to prayer and the prayers throughout the mosque, its courtyards, and the nearby highways. To transmit the sound in full hd, a dedicated crew of engineers ensures that the mics, speakers, and transmitting equipment work properly. The vast system is controlled by two control rooms, one main room and another center in the al-Masaa'a region. Even the sound system has a backup that can take over if the primary one fails, allowing worshippers to finish their prayers uninterrupted.
The Grand Mosque, usually referred to as Masjid Al Haram, is the biggest mosque on earth. Its size is now being expanded, and the goal is to reach 519,149 square meters, according to the Saudi Press Agency.
