Hillcrest Church of Christ, located east of Atlanta, has selected two of SLS Loudspeakers’ LS8695 Line Array Systems for its sanctuary. Greg White, owner of WAVES, an acoustics and audio/video engineering services company, completed the installation in the spacious room, which regularly holds 800-plus members.
“Putting together the sound system wasn’t really a challenge considering the acoustics of this type of space,” says White. “I chose the LS8695 for its precise throw of sound. SLS assisted us with the placement and angle and it was perfect for this room. The overall system gain I’m getting before feedback occurs is overwhelming. The sound of the SLS speakers is so natural and smooth; it’s like someone talking in your ear.”
In addition to the installation of the new speakers at Hillcrest, White also applied 2-inch thick acoustic treatment panels to a large portion of the back wall.
“Hillcrest Church of Christ is housed in a non-audio-friendly room, but is an ideal venue to utilize our line array technology,” comments R. Bob Adams, director of technical communication for SLS. “Greg not only has a good grasp of the system design and installation process, but is keenly aware of how the product fits in the church marketplace and what makes ribbon technology so beneficial in modern day systems.”
