Global Effort as L-ACOUSTICS and Bros Technic Join Forces with Canada’s Christian & Missionary Alliance


ANTALYA, Turkey — L-ACOUSTICS’ Turkish distributor, Elit Light&Sound Technologies, recently assisted the Christian & Missionary Alliance of Canada with its biannual Assembly in Antalya, Turkey, providing the requisite PA system and manpower.

Usually held in Canada, the organization’s proposal to hold it in Turkey posed a unique situation for Scott Murley and Mark Lasebnik, technical director and FOH engineer, respectively, who have been supporting the C&MA Assembly for more than 16 years.

The five-day event includes business sessions, break-out seminars and evening plenary events incorporating a live band, on-stage choir, string section, spoken-word teaching, dramatic elements and pre-produced video, all requiring production equipment and staffing.

The C&MA’s Assemblies in Canada are known for their quality of production, especially audio, so it was deemed that Murley and Lasebnik find a Turkish company that could supply the manpower and gear — including an L-ACOUSTICS PA system — to make the event come to life so far from home.

L-ACOUSTICS Sales Manager Tim McCall contacted Elit, who recommended Baris and Basar Kalem of Bros Technic. Murley travelled to Turkey to outline the requirements for the event and was reassured that Bros Technic could provide a complete audio, video, lighting, staging and backline system.

The PA system included 18 L-ACOUSTICS dV DOSC cabinets (a hang of nine per side), six SB28 subs and four 112P front-fills, powered by six LA8 amplified controllers. The monitor system, managed by engineer Nathan Picklyk, included six 115 XT HiQ coaxials powered by LA4 and LA8 amplified controllers to supplement the in-ear monitor system used by the Jon Buller Band. The system was designed to achieve up to 105 dB SPL at 0 dB at the FOH mix position, as calculated on L-ACOUSTICS’ Soundvision acoustical simulation software.

The venue had a closed 18-foot-high ceiling with no rigging points requiring the entire PA to be flown on a ground-supported truss system. Despite the low ceiling, which put the trim-height for the line arrays at just over 16 feet above floor level, the PA delivered very even coverage throughout the entire 1,000-seat convention hall. The sound engineers received numerous compliments from delegates, technical personnel and musicians regarding the high fidelity and clarity of the music and spoken word.

“Dealing with Bros Technic was an absolute pleasure for the C&MA staff and their professionalism was greatly valued,” says Murley. “They were very accommodating of any request the staff had for them and were very knowledgeable about the gear. They provided the equipment that was requested and did an excellent job of setting it up, even though the site conditions and timing on load-in at the venue were less than ideal.

“We have nothing but the highest praise for Tim McCall, Baris and Basar Kalem and the entire Bros Technic crew, and, of course, the L-ACOUSTICS PA that provided the excellent quality of sound reinforcement that we have come to expect from the company.”

L-ACOUSTICS is a leading innovator and manufacturer of high-performance loudspeakers, amplifiers and signal processing devices for touring and installed sound markets. Known around the globe for pioneering and championing the modern line array loudspeaker concept with V-DOSC, the company has received numerous accolades for its K1, KUDO, KIVA, ARCS, XT coaxial loudspeaker systems and SB line of subwoofer enclosures, all powered and processed with the LA4 and LA8 amplified controllers in fulfillment of a “total system approach.” L-ACOUSTICS products for the North American market are manufactured and distributed by L-ACOUSTICS US of Oxnard, California.
