A virtual press conference from Sound & Video Contractor


Victory Christian Center has a newly built home in Bloomington, Illinois, complete with a state of the art, super-compact Electro-Voice XLD line array loudspeaker system. Pro Sound Center of Normal, Illinois, undertook the installation, balancing the church‘s budget while exceeding their expectations with XLD‘s remarkable performance to size ratio.

“We worked with the church right from the early planning stages,” says Tim Durham of Pro Sound Center. “At first we were considering a single point-source system, but, bearing in mind their busy live music program, we suggested a compact line array that would more effectively deliver the full-bandwidth music reproduction and controlled coverage they needed. We looked at a couple of different boxes and arrived at the XLD; they liked the way it looked and, after inviting them to hear my 16 box hang at a live event, they liked the way it sounded even more.”

Durham flew left and right arrays of five XLD281 in the main room at Victory, powered by four EV CP3000S amps. A single CP4000S amp powers two EV Xsubs installed under the stage to reinforce low end; two CP1800 amps power stage monitors. Two EV Dx38 processors provide an easy to use system control interface.

“The main room is currently 50 feet deep, with the built-in option to knock out the back wall to 90 feet, which may happen within the next six months if membership keeps growing at the rate it is,” adds Durham. The sound system is scaleable too: “At that time I‘ll add one more XLD box per side and two more CP3000S amps, giving me a really flat response from front to back, with only about 2-3 dB loss at 250Hz.”

“The church has just opened and right after their first service–before I came back to train them and do the final tuning–they told me they loved the sound of it running it flat, without even using the high pass filters or EQs! That said, my final tuning didn‘t change much from my initial tuning–these boxes simply sound good. They have already scheduled two big concerts for the room–Chonda Pierce and Jason Crabb–and the system is going to sound incredible.”
