The Church, one of Denver's nightspots, recently performed a majorupgrade to its sound and lighting systems on all three dancefloors,replacing the existing desks with Allen & Heath Xone Seriesprofessional club mixers in the process.
Tim Hannum, of Diavolo Systems in Houston, was contracted to performthe refurbishment. Head of sound Mike McCray and club promoter BradRoulier of Together Productions recommended that the existing mixers atboth venues be replaced with Allen & Heath equipment.
McCray and the technical crew installed an Allen & Heath Xone:62mixer in the main room at The Church. The professional club mixerprovides six dual-stereo channels plus VCF filters and a powerful4-band EQ section. "The fact that the Allen & Heath has the filterson it is a huge benefit. The filters are really clean," said McCray."The inputs and outputs are really nice, and it's really flexible andfits in with any system that I can imagine. I've been a DJ for 13years, so I know both sides: mixing and working with the consoles aswell as installing them. That was one of the only mixers that I feltcomfortable putting in with that system."
Diavolo Systems and McCray designed a custom, four-corner speakerstack system using a four-way JBL AE Line system. The system alsoincorporates large subwoofers and is controlled by a BSS ProSys PS-8810system processor.
