The new KLA system in use at a recent Covenant Church event in late October
Covenant Church is the first house of worship in the U.S. to purchase QSC’s new KLA Series fixed-accurate active line array system, employing it across the church’s five Dallas-area campuses. The system will be in use in both indoor and outdoor events and comprises six KLA12 two-way/12-inch loudspeakers and four KLA181 18-inch subs. In addition, six K12 two-way/12-inch active loudspeakers are in use as outfill or stage monitors. The system’s first outing was for the church’s annual Block Party outdoor event in late July.
“They set up a big stage and we hung three KLA12 boxes per side off of the truss and had the four KLA181 subs on the ground,” says Slade Goplin, Covenant’s chief technical engineer/project coordinator. “When we plugged them in, we were really impressed at how powerful they were and how great they sounded. We ran all the speakers off of four 20-amp circuits. I thought we’d need more but we just plugged it in and see if we blew any breakers, but we didn’t!”
