Las Vegas, NV (March 8, 2021)—The pandemic has been a dark time for many around the world, but for 4,000 worshipers in Las Vegas, Hope Church has been a bright spot in their lives during this time—so much so that in December, 2020, the church opened a new, 1,750-seat worship center and sanctuary, complete with an Alcons Audio pro-ribbon system designed and installed by Stark Raving Solutions (SRS).
Kansas-based SRS introduced the leadership of Hope Church to Alcons solutions at a demonstration event in Las Vegas a few years ago. When SRS suggested a system based on the double 8” LR18 compact mid-size line-array module and double 6.5” LR14/90 ultra-compact line-array module for the new worship center, the church readily agreed.
“The seating area is a large horseshoe/fan shape, nearly 230º wide, with heavily-raked seats. None is more than 90 feet from the central speaking position on stage,” says SRS’s church resource director Marcus Hammond. The system comprises a center cluster of eight and two side clusters of six LR18, plus two six-unit arrays of LR14/90 for side fills, powered and controlled by four 10kW Sentinel10 and one 3kW Sentinel3 amplified loudspeaker controllers.
“It’s really all about the pro-ribbon HF driver and its incredible clarity. These systems are so dynamic and low distortion at even the highest outputs. It really makes a big difference in the experience, which is what our clients want. The pro-ribbon drivers [were] a perfect match for the space.” says Marcus. “The church leadership is overwhelmingly happy.”
