HOLLAND, Michigan – September 2009 — What is a church to do when the economy spirals into recession halfway through raising funds for a much-needed new PA system? In the case of Holland, Michigan-based Christ Memorial Church (CMC), the answer was to install a cost-effective coaxial solution from L-ACOUSTICS.

Early last year, CMC initially commissioned Parkway Electric and Communications to design a discrete loudspeaker setup to provide sound reinforcement for its 180-voice choir and orchestra, both of which perform from the far left side of the sanctuary. After evaluating at a number of systems, Parkway specified a compact LA4-powered system comprised of four KIVA elements arrayed beneath a KILO low-frequency extension cabinet, with two additional KIVA down-firing behind the array to provide monitoring for the choir. more
