Christ Fellowship Gardens, home to a new KARAi/SB18i loudspeaker system concealed in soffits above the stage.
Palm Beach Gardens, FL (November 10, 2011)—Christ Fellowship Church in Palm Beach County, FL recently updated its flagship worship center with the first L-Acoustics KARAi and SB18i boxes installed in the U.S.
Alan Jones of Pro Sound and Video’s Miami location helped facilitate the sale and installation of the new system, which features three KARAi arrays flown in an LCR configuration (8+9+8 KARAi) concealed in soffits above the stage of the 2,200-seat octagonal sanctuary. A pair of four-box SB18i sub arrays, each arranged in a cardioid configuration, are flown and two SB28 subs are positioned on the floor beneath each array. Additionally, one 115XT HiQ is flown per side to provide extreme left and right downfill, and seven 8XTi are mounted to the front of the stage, below the stage lip, for frontfill. The entire loudspeaker complement is powered by a combination of LA8 and LA4 amplified controllers equipped with LA-AES3 (AES/EBU) cards for digital signal distribution.
Danny Dagher, senior audio engineer at Christ Fellowship Gardens, remarked, “Whatever comes through it simply sounds like the source; it’s exactly like listening to a pair of high-end studio reference monitors. The more I use our L-Acoustics rig, and the more I compare it with PAs in other venues, the more I love it.”
