Yake Engineered Systems And JBL Professional PD Series Spread The Word At Lakeside Church

jbl_lakeside.jpgNORTHRIDGE, CALIFORNIA, May 14, 2008 — In a display of the versatility and pattern control capability of JBL Professional’s loudspeaker lineup, Yake Engineered Systems of Cambridge, Ontario, Canada recently chose to install JBL’s PD (Precision Directivity) Series loudspeakers into a new sound system at the Lakeside Church in Guelph. The project was part of an overall expansion to accommodate a congregation of approximately 1,200 people–three times its original size.

Lakeside Church’s new setup includes four separate worship areas, all receiving the same message from the new main sanctuary. Besides the main sanctuary, the church features a youth worship space, a smaller traditional worship space for adults, as well as a café/lounge environment. The service is delivered through JBL products in each of the spaces.

One of the primary challenges faced in the design of the main sanctuary was high reflectivity from the walls, requiring loudspeakers with excellent pattern control to minimize splash onto the side walls. PD Precision Directivity Series’ large 24? x 24? rotatable horns made them a natural choice for this project. The main sanctuary system features main and delay split clusters, each containing three JBL PD5212/64 loudspeakers. Two JBL SRX728S subwoofers provide low-frequency output, while eight JBL JRX112M loudspeakers serve as stage monitors. Additionally, Crown CTs and XTi amplifiers power the system, which also features BSS Soundweb, dbx DriveRack processing and AKG microphones.

Specializing in design and installation for houses of worship, Yake Engineered Systems has installed JBL loudspeakers in numerous churches throughout Ontario. For the Lakeside Church project, company Owner David Yake took his past experience with the PD Series loudspeakers into account when designing the system. “Before we recommended the system, we performed EASE modeling of the space to show why the JBL PD series loudspeakers would work best,? Yake said. “Because the room was mostly concrete with no acoustical treatment, we needed a highly directional box that didn’t spill onto the walls or the ceiling.?

Since the completion of the project, the system has exceeded the church’s expectations. “Everyone is really happy with the sound,? Yake said, “and the presence of JBL loudspeakers throughout the different areas of the church ensures that members of the congregation will have clear audio regardless of where they are.?
