Decatur, GAâ€“â€“When Messenger Media Systems of Covington, Georgia was called in to do the audio for the New Life Church, the primary challenge was providing a powerful system for a spacious sanctuary on a limited budget.
As Senior Systems Engineer Christopher Bragg, puts it, â€œThe client had purchased an old high school which they used for administrative offices and built a large sanctuary behind it.
â€œIt was a 2,000-seat church and they only had $100,000 for the audio system because theyâ€™d spent a lot of money up front for conduits and other infrastructure they didnâ€™t end up using.
â€œAcoustically, the room is difficult. Lots of straight walls, hard surfaces and we didnâ€™t have the budget for acoustic treatment at that point. That was the main difficulty, working on a small budget for a room that size.â€?
Continuing, Bragg says, â€œThey wanted an aggressive (ie. loud) system for Gospel
music with electric instrumentation. So we chose Renkus-Heinz STX7 speakers in an exploded cluster with two main speakers in the middle and sidefills of STX4s, SGX 151s as a delay ring and an existing cluster of JBL 4212s for the downfills.â€?
For the critically important amplification to drive the system, Bragg chose Face Audio because â€œthey provide exceptional performance in pushing the speakers and theyâ€™re a solid amp that sounds great at a price you canâ€™t beat. We used four F700TS and three F1200TS Titanium Series amps to push the delay ring and the main clusters.
â€œFace also had a good advancement replacement policy and a solid warranty program that allowed us to make the client feel comfortable about a brand they didnâ€™t know as well. And given their value and performance, a lot more people will know who Face Audio is real soon.
â€œBottom line, it sounds great, itâ€™s really loud and we have one very impressed customer.â€?
