The Christian Church congregation of Norway recently held the grand opening of its 7,500-seat main hall and facilities, the Brunstad Conference Center. The system features the largest number of Crown I-Tech Series amplifiers in a European installation to date, with 100,000 watts of total amplifier power. LydRommet AS, Harman Pro distributor for Norway, was responsible for system design, installation, trimming and quality control. The congregation’s technical department handled all cabling and termination.
Twelve I-T4000s and 10 I-T6000s were used, in addition to one CTs 1200 (front-fill), one CTs 2000 (stage-fill) and four CTs 2000 for monitors. All loudspeaker control including crossover, equalization, delay and limiting is handled inside the amplifier via I-Tech’s integrated DSP. In addition, I-Tech’s load monitor, temperature control, error log and other advanced diagnostic features make it easy to monitor Brunstad’s system from a remote PC. Also, by utilizing I-Tech’s internal DSP, the system signal chain to the loudspeakers was reduced by one component over what is typical, providing improved S/N ratio.
“We are very satisfied with the result of this installation,” notes Christian Wille, president of LydRommet. “The main hall has fantastic acoustics for amplified audio, all seats have smooth and even coverage with precise bass punch and soft high-fidelity response in the mid and high frequencies. This is highly appreciated for music and concerts.”
